Years in Insurance

George VanderMeer Portrait
  • George has been an amazing agent over the years.

    Unfortunately we have had several claims recently and he has stayed involved and helped us through this process in an amazing way. Everyone who buys insurance is always nervous about filing claims but after doing so with George, we know that we are being taken care of in a great way. We will stay with him for years to come.

  • Thank you for being there for us.

    I'm not sure what kind of relationship other people have with their insurance agents, but I know I truly value our working relationship and our friendship. It's insurmountable to count all the times I've called you with an immediate need and you and your team have come through for us.

    Our insurance needs change rapidly and I've never been let down when I've come to you with "crisis" we often create ourselves. No matter what the reason you always have my back. That's the peace of mind that allows us to move forward and take on new opportunity. For this we are thankful. I feel like anyone would be lucky to have you as their representative. I know we do.

    So, in just this one correspondence, I'm not asking for service. I'm thanking you for being vital part of our coast to coast operations. I'm recalling and commending you on all of the times, big and small, that you have been there for us and for me personally. When it all falls in my lap and I call you, you have helped me manage these unique businesses of ours. I can truly say without your services over these many years, we wouldn't be where we are today. A live person who knows me and our operation is a rare and precious asset. Thank you George for being that for us.

About George

“Do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do” has always been my mantra. I started in the insurance industry back in 1988 working for AON (Combined Insurance Company of America) as an agent. I rose through the ranks as sales manager, territory manager, and district manager in Idaho and Montana.

In 1999, I moved to a local property & casualty agency for a few years. After gaining some valuable experience in the P&C world, I decided to start my own agency in 2001, Enterprise Insurance Services in Idaho Falls, where I focused on outdoor recreation insurance products as well as other lines of insurance. In 2020, we merged our office with Leavitt Group, where I continue to focus on outdoor recreation insurance for RV parks, outfitters and guides, lodges, resorts, and other commercial insurance risks.

My clients appreciate working with me because I am easy to get along with and am always available to help when needed. Good communication is important to a successful agent/client relationship and I work hard to do it well.

I’m a recipient of the Grand Diamond Award with AON and graduated from the CICA School of Insurance in 1988.

    I grew up in Jerome, Idaho on a 300-cow dairy farm. I left the dairy in 1988 and never looked back. In 1999, I moved to Idaho Falls and continue to make my home there with my wife of 40 years. We have three adult children and nine grandchildren. I love being in the outdoors, especially if I’m hunting, fishing, camping, or snowmobiling.
