Riding, blogging and Insurance - Welcoming a newbie to AR!

Mortgage and Lending with Draper and Kramer NMLS# 189006

Dean Akey of Akey Financial Services is an Insurance Agent in St. Charles Illinois.  He provides insurance for Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa and Missouri.  I met Dean through my husband when he joined Dean in his quest to help other bikers with Rescue Riders.  We did a ride for a charity a month or so ago and I finally had the pleasure to meet Dean.  As you can tell by his picture, Dean Akeyhe is not your typical looking Insurance Agent.  But then again, Don't judge a book by its cover, as I explained last year.

I was first impressed by Deans size.  He's a very tall man, my guess about 6 foot 6', bald and tattooed.  I also discovered his passion for Rescue Riders a non for profit group he started.  Dean has also raised 1,000's of dollars to help many charities.  In 2008 Dean won a prestigious Award.  He was awarded the Ray Lynch Award for exceptional customer service.

Dean has hit the ground running on AR with 2 blogs.  His first gives you an in site on insurance, with a informative and sensible approach in You are doing it all wrong.  Then he topped it with One of these things is not like the other, providing information on how to lower your current tax bill.

Please take a look at Dean's first 2 blogs and welcome him as I believe he will be a great asset to the Rain.
