We have seen and gone through a lot of changes since we opened our doors in 2008, but one thing hasn’t changed: We are a family owned agency that does not only care about our consumers but also about the communities which we live in.
I, Dominik, am originally from Germany and came to Yakima, WA as an exchange student in 1997. Instead of heading back home after 9 months, I ended up at the University of Washington to pursue a degree in Business Administration, Information Systems and Retail Management. My biggest accomplishment during that time, however, was somehow convincing an amazing young woman 1500 miles to fall in love with me.
Michele graduated from the University of Arizona with a major in psychology and a minor in dance. She has not lost her passion for people’s well-being and the art of dance since. Together, Dom and Michele stay busy running the agency, teaching dance (only Michele!), coaching youth basketball (only Dominik currently), volunteering at various great organizations, helping lead the children ministry at the church they attend and last but not least raise these two amazing children.
Henry, an insurance agent since 2002, first joined the Dominik Kunigk Agency as a client in 2009. He would later partner with our agency to help clients with all lines of insurance with a focus on their health and supplemental medicare insurance. Henry and his family reside in Kent and his family focused passion for serving our community is a perfect fit for the agency.
Those serviced by the D.O.K. agency can be rest assured that we know what it means to go through the stressful time after being involved in a major car accident. In 2011, our family was involved in a rollover accident that involved 2 other vehicles.
While there were a number of lessons we learned and are now able to pass onto our clients, three have stood out the most. The first is that having great insurance (limits) is key. The second one is how complex and lengthy the claims process can be. Lastly, we cannot take life for granted. We cannot take for granted the time we get to spend our families. We cannot take for granted the lifestyle we allow our families to enjoy. Life insurance and disability insurance can prevent a tragic disability or death to turn into a lifelong financial struggle.
We love to know what gets people out of bed in the morning and what they need to have a peace of mind to sleep soundly at night. Please call or email us today to find out how we can be of help.
