Gary Knode, CFF - former U.S. Army Intelligence, Russian Linguist and North Central University Alum - I found my way into the insurance business after the abrupt passing of my father. He had no life insurance and his investments were a mess. I thought to myself, "there has to be a better way". I got into the insurance industry working with an agency and "learned the ropes". As I progressed, I learned that I love helping people improve their situations, both financially and protection-wise to ensure their families would not suffer a similar situation as mine had. In 2016, I left that agency to start my own and Safe Harbor Financial was born. In a few short years, we've grown to a group of myself and 5 other agents and we're still growing! My passion is helping people. Whether it's saving someone money on a Medicare supplement, ensuring their family is covered with the proper life insurance, or helping protect their nest egg from market downturns while still growing it and giving them a paycheck for life....
I am here to help.
