A place to be proud of
Jason Laube was driving his daughter to hockey practice when he saw the little building, at 3450 151st St. W., was for sale. He had been looking for property to purchase, and he thought the building had potential.
The State Farm agent said while the location needed a little TLC, it fit his needs. Laube bought property and has since set out to improve it. He put on new siding, updated the landscaping and built offices in the former Rapp Chiropractic location.
"We plan to be here for a nice long time and wanted something we'll be proud of," said Laube.
On Oct. 18 Laube and his staff moved into their new office. While there are still a few odds and ends left, Laube said they are back to business as usual.
Laube has worked as a State Farm agent for seven years. Previously he had his office at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and 160th near the Lakeville/Apple Valley border.
Laube has a staff of three and hopes to add on in the near future. Staff includes office representatives Kim Miller, Susan Couch and Sarah Moore.
Laube takes great pride in his employees. He said everyone on his staff is licensed and dedicated to providing great customer service, which has made his office one of the fastest growing insurance agencies south of the river.
"We really pride ourselves on great customer service," said Laube.
Providing great service is part of the reason Laube went into the insurance business.
"You get out of it what you put into it. I like that because I like to work hard," said Laube.
State Farm offers a variety of insurance products including automobile, home and life insurance. The company also offers mutual funds and banking products.
Outside the office Laube is a busy father of four. He coaches a number of youth sports teams. He also likes to be physically active. The former college basketball player still plays in rec leagues and runs. He has completed three marathons.
Laube said he's happy to bring his business to Rosemount and is looking forward to making connections in the community.
