The Knight-Free Family
The people of Knight-Free are consummate insurance professionals. In fact, we have more than 168 years of collective experience in the insurance business. We also believe that school is never out for the pro. Every associate on our team, in addition to having a solid insurance-agency background, is a licensed insurance agent with a professional designation that requires annual classroom time.
But we’re your fellow citizens, too. Maybe even your neighbors or your friends. Which means we understand exactly what you need in an insurance product, and how to tailor a policy that’s exactly right for you.
