About Home Loan Insurance:

Home Loan will be celebrating 120 years in business in December this year!

Timeline of Home Loan Insurance since 1897

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long before "superstore" and "one-stop shopping" were part of our language, Home Loan was providing integrated financial services under one roof. Founders Samuel McMullen and William Marsh were business pioneers in a pioneer town. In a way, that's still true of Home Loan and Grand Junction. The pace of change makes us all pioneers today.

 

 

It's fun to look back and important to remember where we came from, but we get nowhere without looking ahead. Being in business for more than 119 years gives Home Loan some important advantages... experience, stability, and comprehensive knowledge of our community. It also means we're a company that knows how to adapt, change, and grow. Today, Home Loan is a locally owned insurance agency, led by Jamie Hamilton and Craig Springer, and successful because of our many talented and dedicated employees.

Home Loan not only watched Grand Junction grow and prosper, we helped make it happen. Over the past hundred years, Home Loan has helped thousands of individuals, families, and businesses reach for and attain their dreams. This is our home too. And that guides everything that we do, from the products and services we offer to the way you’re treated when you walk through our door.

 

A Little History

Home Loan Insurance's first building

An insurance policy on a Grand Junction Home worth $2,000 was Home Loan's first insurance transaction. Much of the young organization's insurance expertise came from founder Samuel McMullen whose business in the late 1800s included a builders' risk policy for the home of I.N. Bunting, editor and publisher of Grand Junction's Daily Sentinel. Much later, it was Harold Daniels who would establish the agency as a major player in the Grand Junction insurance market providing Home Loan with the momentum necessary to propel it to the predominant position it enjoys today.

 

 

Home Loan’s founders were much more than business people. They were the early movers and shakers helping bring business and prosperity to young Grand Junction. Founder William Marsh served as the city’s treasurer, a member of the school board, and as a county judge. Samuel McMullen was a district attorney and attorney general.

 

 

Sam Suplizio, Home Loan prior CEO

More recent principles of Home Loan have been no less instrumental in building Grand Junction’s reputation and fortune. Sam Suplizio, Home Loan’s President from 1983 to 1996 is known as the man who brought baseball to Grand Junction. Thanks to Suplizio’s efforts, Grand Junction has hosted the Junior College (JUCO) Baseball World Series since the late 50’s. JUCO is one of the city’s best attended, most anticipated, and financially beneficial annual events, bringing in an estimated 100,000 baseball fans and significant revenue to local businesses… to say nothing of some of the best baseball and family fun anywhere!

Home Loan’s business is helping people attain their dreams, and our dreams are remarkably similar. We take our place in the community very seriously. Our contributions go beyond being a good employer and taxpayer. Each year, Home Loan helps thousands of people through support of community organizations and charities. “Home Loan management and employees have not forgotten we owe our success to our neighbors,” Says Jamie Hamilton. “When our community as a whole prospers, we can all be proud and consider ourselves successful.” Home Loan Insurance along with our affiliate Home Loan State Bank has given over $1,300,000 to various non-profit organizations in Western Colorado!

For almost 120 years, Western Colorado and Home Loan have grown and prospered together, and we like to think because of each other. Unlike other financial service companies, our only focus is your future, your family, and your business. The next time you need insurance services, remember no one cares more about this beautiful place you call home more than Home Loan!

 

Home Loan’s mission is to be the preeminent financial services company in Western Colorado. Our vision involves continuingly evolving and growing our institution by adding new services and products, recruiting and retaining the best bankers, lenders, and insurance agents, all the while merging cutting edge technology with traditional values and maintaining a commitment to community service.

Testimonials

My name is Casey and my husband and I have personal insurance through Home Loan. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with Julie Sinclair as my insurance agent. She is polite, friendly, knowledgeable and always promptly returns my calls. Having my insurance through Home Loan and working with Julie has been nothing but easy and headache- free for me, and as a busy mom, wife and nurse, I so appreciate this! I just wanted to let you know as often employees get over looked for what an outstanding job they're doing. I think customer service in this world is often very poor so I very much appreciate her wonderful customer service skills and friendly demeanor. Thank you. - Casey P.

Matt, I Just wanted you to know that everyone Bill and I have worked with there at your office has been incredibly helpful and patient: Katie, Beverly, McKenzie and any of the others I can’t recall right now and especially yourself. We really appreciate all your assistance. Thanks again!
Candy Hardin, Vice President & CFO of Iona Management Group
I was so impressed with the folks at Home Loan Insurance. They were able to save me a substantial amount of money compared to the company I was with. I also have better coverage. Julie was a pleasure to deal with, she really went to work for us and researched how we could save money by consolidating all of our insurance coverage through them. Everyone I have dealt with at Home Loan Insurance as well as Home Loan State Bank has been very courteous and knowledgeable. I am recommending them to all of my friends to at least let them quote their insurance needs.
Adrian Appelhans Montrose, Co., 5 Star Google Review
We recently experienced a interior flood due to plumbing failure at our townhouse rented by my daughter. Home Loan was very quick to respond and they addressed all of our needs in a compassionate and professional manner. I would highly recommend Home Loan. The level of response and assistance was outstanding. Thanks Home Loan for making a overwhelming situation manageable.

Joe Gaizutis
Julie Sinclair is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. My quote --at very competitive rates-- and temporary insurance cards were provided within minutes of our phone conversation. I highly recommend Home Loan Insurance and Julie. Darren Coltrinari, also Home Loan Insurance, is great to work with as well. Professional, easy going, competitive prices.

Great customer service and very knowledgeable employees!
Garrett Brafford
Julie Sinclair has been helping my family with our insurance needs for years. After moving to Kansas for college several years ago, I was upset I would have to start using a different insurance company. Now that Home Loan is covering Kansas I'm so happy to be back working with her again. She is not only easy to work with, but extremely knowledgeable of the products her company offers. My husband and I are looking forward to working with Julie for many years to come!
Amy Pick
Love Home Loan! Julie has been so great with our car insurance and Wendy Jones is a true gem! Would highly recommend them!

Home Loan Insurance is as top notch a company to work with as they come. I'd say they are even better than advertised.
John Messinger, 5 Star Google Review
I have been a Home Loan Insurance customer for 20 years. I have added several policies and have filed multiple claims over the years. The service has always been excellent.
Nate Russell, 5 Star Google Review
I have been working with Brittany Case regarding my health insurance policy. She has went above and beyond to help my husband and I during this difficult process. We couldn't have done this without her. I highly suggest using this company for any of your needs.

Sara at Home Loan Insurance is great!! The customer service was wonderful! She had my insurance needs handles within 15 min! She was so nice! HLI for all my insurance needs from now on!!
Madison Alexander, 5 Star Google Review
I have always had excellent service and support from Kim Burkert in Employee Health and Benefits. Last week Kim had to make numerous phone calls to resolve an issue with one of our employee's insurance coverage. She was very pleasant through the whole thing, called and informed the employee with the problem of the resolution and let me know the outcome of the issue as well. In our staff meeting, the employee gave Kim rave reviews and it was seconded several times by others in the meeting about the quality of our insurance and the service we receive.

The team at Home Loan Insurance is so helpful. Every staff person I've come in contact with has been helpful, easy to understand and willing to work for me. Plus, is you go in person, they often have enticing goodies in the lobby. Who doesn't love a sweet treat from Enstrom Candies or Charley's Cookies while running an errand! :)

Great Customer Service Carma was wonderful with helping me get home owners insurance when no other home owner insurance company's would help. Very quick and helpful guiding me through the process. Carma should get an award for outstanding customer service.

Recently I worked with Carma Brown's assistant, Sara Mendenhall. Sara was incredibly helpful in working through my car insurance concerns and costs. She was able to guide me through the pros and cons of the various deductible options and helped me to make sound decisions.I left the office pleased! I would say the same for Carma Brown - always helpful and ALWAYS goes above and beyond whether I have had an auto or home insurance issue. Thank you for all you do! TW

United Way of Mesa County
Carma Brown and the insurance division at Home Loan have demonstrated outstanding service to my wife Valerie and me from day one. We have used Home Loan Insurance for many years I can vouch for their consistency of great service and ability to understand our needs insuring our properties, vehicles and other specific requests. They have been especially versatile any time we have requested service in an emergency time frame. We recommend Home Loan Insurance to all our friends and business partners.
Kevin Brooks, CEO of Big O Tires, Inc.
Our company has done business with Home Loan for decades, and I personally have been involved since my hire here about 4 years ago. As with most business relationships there have been ups and downs. I will stress MORE UPS, than downs. I have been able to talk with all available personnel there, whenever necessary, and have always received a prompt response to our requests. We have always been able to resolve any problems and have worked to improve our systems on both sides. I would not hesitate to recommend Home Loan to anyone requiring their services.
Medic Adams, Moody Construction Risk Manager
Home Loan Insurance has always given me excellent service!
Rebecca Daniels, Owner of DLD Pipe Recovery Systems, LLC
To me the three most important properties necessary for a business to succeed are quality, cost and response, but I was wrong because Carma Brown added the dimensions of friendliness, warmth and caring to the insurance business so that no matter what emergency or situation we may get into we know that Carma and the folks at Home Loan Insurance will take care of us. These last three dimensions can't be bought or paid for; they are just there whenever we need them.

Beverly [Troester] is a connector at heart. She seeks to connect her clients, associates, and colleagues to solutions. Her knowledge of insurance and the current condition in the insurance world is outstanding. She is never afraid to say that she needs to research something and even better she will always follow up with the answer when she finds it.
Jennifer Kettlewell- Executive Director of NW Colorado BNI
I have been a customer of Home Loan for a little over a year, but my family has been with them for years. What service! Always returning calls promptly, making sure my questions are completely answered and to boot, they had the best prices!! Winning combo- great service + great prices. Thanks, Carma & Wendy!!
Connie Tremblay
I would recommend everyone here in the Grand Valley to come on down to Home Loan Insurance. They have friendly, fun, and excellent customer service!
Kiana G.
I worked with Rich [Englehart] for about 5 years and came to know him both as a professional and as a friend. Rich is the type of agent that makes you feel "at home," because he works very hard to ensure you feel comfortable with your insurance coverage. I would highly recommend Rich to any business owner looking to protect their investment.
Stephanie Roush- Crouse and Associates
I am a customer of both Home Lone State Bank and Home Loan Insurance. I am very satisfied with service levels on both sides! A very helpful company no matter what our needs are and are glad to see you when you come in.
Gary Crone, Owner of Comet Cleaners
Home Loan and their employees are not only a huge support to our community through their volunteer efforts and donations but also provides our family with trusted service for our insurance and banking needs for the last 18 years.
