James Baehr


I started my insurance career working for Progressive Insurance in 2001.  I was a senior in high school and had the opportunity to get my insurance license right after I graduated and did so.  I worked in multiple roles at Progressive before leaving in 2007 to open Baehr Insurance Agency. I strive to help people in general and we get the opportunity to help protect what matters most to people and help them save money. I’m a lifetime Browns fan and you will likely find me at all our home games. I like to golf and I teach boxing part time. When I get a chance, I try to travel with my family. I love spending time with my wife and daughter.
