Years in Insurance

Mike Hufschmid Portrait
  • Mike and his team are incredibly responsive and truly fit the bill as a business partner for my firm.

    We have been very satisfied with Leavitt Group NW, and especially with our broker, Mike Hufschmid. We unfortunately had a break-in at our office, and Mike was such a huge help for us during all of the worry and chaos of trying to get everything figured out. Not only was he extremely supportive at the time, but finding out that we indeed had the right coverages in place was very reassuring. I will always use Mike for my insurance needs, and I have zero hesitation sending my clients to him as well!

  • We felt very educated, not alarmed, yet clearly more aware of coverages that need to be considered.

    We met with Michael about my wife's design business and had questions about exposure to risk and needed coverage. Michael had excellent insight and awareness of that industry and outlined the shifts and areas of concern that we could be exposed to. With a business that has been operating for over 10 years we want to be aware of the ever changing risk and coverage landscape. We will continue to use Michael to ensure we are prepared for the next 10 years.

About Mike

I am a business insurance and employee benefits adviser at Leavitt Group Northwest. I provide insurance and employee benefits to a wide array of businesses in the Northwest, including contractors, distributors, dealerships, auto repair shops, property managers, restaurants, and transportation.

I started my insurance career in 2011 with Sentry Insurance, selling commercial insurance, employee benefits, life insurance, and 401k plans. In 2017, I joined HBT Insurance, which ultimately merged with Leavitt Group in 2018. Leavitt Group is a great fit for me personally and for my career. I value the company’s investment in their employees and the community, their relationship with carriers, their vast reach of negotiating ability, and the resources they provide to clients.

As part of Leavitt Group Northwest, I enjoy being part of a company that is local, cares about their community and employees, and fosters a positive work environment. Through Leavitt Group, I can provide my clients with competitive coverage, service, and pricing along with industry leading claims support through our in-house claims department. 

I continually work on product knowledge and education so I can be a trusted advisor for my clients and provide them the experience they rely on. I think outside the box to provide solutions that don’t always stand out. Making the insurance experience more enjoyable and valuable for my clients is a constant focus of mine. Over the years, I have consistently hit sales goals and earned leader trips.

    I believe people buy from people they trust. I adopted the mindset very early in my insurance career that doing the right thing, being honest, and working hard will take me very far in my career. Granted, there is so much more that goes into being successful but doing the right thing by my clients is extremely important. "Doing the right thing" involves being honest, providing timely service, offering comprehensive coverage at fair pricing, and being there for my clients when there is a claim. 

    I belong to Business Networking International and Roofing Contractors Association of Washington. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Art in business marketing. I plan to earn the Associate in Risk Management (ARM) designation in 2021.

    After growing up in Vancouver, Washington, I met my wife while attending Oregon State University. We have been married since 2012 and have two amazing, fun, and busy children – our son, Trey, was born in 2017 and our daughter, Mia, was born in 2020. We live in Gig Harbor. We enjoy spending time outside, golfing, going to the park, concerts, water sports, snowboarding, and vacationing.
