Understanding, Dedicated Agents Partnering with You
ASI initially opened shop in Lafayette in 1996. However, in April of 2014 the agency transitioned to its current location in Erie. This move was an exciting one for the business, as it brought our owner, Ivan, closer to his former residence.
Our growth as a business wasn’t immune to ups and downs. The insurance market is ever-changing, but we’re proud of the experienced, knowledgeable staff we’ve put together. We have a crew that can weather any storm, and we’re excited to develop into a first-mate provider.
We attribute any success we’ve experienced to our clients. From the start, we’ve focused on growing our client base on referrals alone. It makes us happy to say clients trust ASI enough to recommend services to family and friends. We return this favor by treating clients to the best of our ability.
This reciprocation extends to our involvement in the community. Ivan, our owner, is heavily involved with Troop 171 of the Boy Scouts of America alongside his son. Staff members have also donated and volunteered with the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. On the insurance side, we are a member of Trusted Choice and the Personal Independent Insurance Association of Colorado (PIIAC).

I have grown up with insurance in my blood, my mom has been an insurance agent for over 30 years and my sister was also an agent before selling her business to work for my mother's insurance agency in Pennsylvania.

I grew up in Devon Pa, which is right next to King of Prussia, Valley Forge Park and about 35 minutes northeast of Philadelphia. I graduated from Alfred University with a Major in Biology and minor in Chemistry. I worked as a research Biochemist and Chemist for several biotech companies in Princeton, NJ, Denver, CO, Boulder CO and Albany OR.
In 1997 while working in Albany Oregon, I realized I wanted to live in Colorado for the rest of my life. At the time my sister, Rachel had an Insurance Agency in Boulder Colorado and said her company was looking for more Agents. I decided to drop my career in science and make the move opening my first Agency in Lafayette, Colorado on Centaur Village Drive, December, 1998.
During this time, I married my wonderful wife Alexandra September, 2000. We have two energetic children, Charlotte Skye, born Jan 2002 and James Alexander, August 2004.
I have always tried to help my customers by training and hiring staff that are knowledgeable, have integrity and are empathetic to our customer's needs. I am very grateful for my customers because in return for providing exceptional value, they allow me to have the wonderful family I have and the excellent staff that you see!
