Generally, no one likes to think too much about insurance — luckily, Neligh’s Dane Nielsen, owner of Nielsen Insurance Inc., doesn’t mind doing it for you.
Located in the heart of Neligh, the small business finds itself helping insure area residents for all sorts of loss prevention—from the smaller things like auto, home, and crop insurance, to the bigger things, like health, long term care, and life insurance.
In an age when the insurance industry is continually changing, having a dependable agent who stays on top of those changes is invaluable, and Nielsen is happy to oblige.
“Working for local people and helping them in the event of a loss is the most enjoyable aspect of my business,” says Valentine native Nielsen, who grew up on a ranch in the Sandhills, and completed his undergrad years at UNK before getting married and moving to Neligh in the late ‘90s. Nielsen purchased Heckert Insurance in 2005, and has operated it as Nielsen Insurance Inc. ever since.
Recently, the company expanded to include offices in Valentine as well. Though not a short drive, Nielsen is able to make it work.
“Having family up there helps, and I was able to hire really good people who are good with insurance,” explains Nielsen.
In the end, serving the people around you is the most important, and it’s one of the things Nielsen appreciates the most about working in both towns.
Ultimately, Nielsen hopes to offer the best services around to his customers, and continue to take an interest in people, treating their needs as his own for years to come.
