Hi, Thanks for taking the time to get to know me better. I am an independent insurance agent. I specialize in the needs of families and small businesses. I provide access to 150+ of America’s Best known insurance brands. No matter how complex or simple your exposures are, I can tailor a policy to your specific needs. Read on to learn more about me.
I began my working life in real estate, working with a national home builder, as well as a commercial developer. I spent time developing/building master planned communities, shopping centers and offices, and was responsible for acquisition, planning, construction oversight, and sales/leasing/dispositions. When the commercial real estate market imploded in 2007, it was a good time to give the family business a try. My grandfather, a retired-40 year independent insurance agent, encouraged me to get licensed and learn the insurance business.
I spent my early insurance career working with two large, publicly traded insurance agencies, focusing my time and efforts serving the needs of businesses that spend in excess of $250,000 annually on property and casualty insurance premiums. My time in this segment of the market exposed me to the complexities and depth of the insurance world, and also opened my eyes to opportunity. I have taken the training and experience working with this large corporate clientele, and deliver a unique service model for the small business and family arena.
In late 2010, I acquired Legacy Insurance of South Florida, Inc., and quickly sharpened the team’s focus to become the “one call” insurance solution for small businesses and families. This specialization allows our team to provide a consistent level of service to our clients and save them time and money with administration related to insurances. I seek to educate and empower our clients on the best way to manage their total cost of risk as well as provide them strategies to grow their business.
After merging with my Grandfather’s agency, Michael T Lyons Insurance Associates, Inc. specializing in Medical Malpractice and serving south Florida since 1970, we are pleased to announce our that we will begin doing business as “Lyons Insurance Group” in 2017.
I am a VERY PROUD graduate of The University of Florida, and I live in Palm Beach Gardens with my wife and our 4 children. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, the occasional golf outing, playing guitar, and watching college football and basketball (Go Gators!). I strive to build a life of integrity, provide a firm foundation for my family, see my children succeed, and give my wife a beautiful life.
