About Us

About Our Agency

On January 1st of 1982, we opened our doors to provide personalized insurance policies with well-established local insurance companies.


Our history starts with the purchase of Lawrence Ruther Agency that brought with it access to Grinnell Mutual and White Pigeon Mutual, which began writing insurance in 1872.  In December of 1983, we purchased not only the book of business but the expertise of Raymond Doermann Agency.  This agency’s experience and history can be traced back to the early 1900’s.


In January of 2005, we became Niermeyer-Maurer Insurance with the purchase of the Property and Casualty business from the Maurer Agency.  The history of The Maurer Agency can be traced back to the middle of the 1900’s.


Insurance can be a very confusing industry and topic.  With a combined history of over a century and  individual experience of 30+ years, it has helped us become the advisors that you can count on.  We specialize in insurance coverage for auto, home and farms.  Robert Niermeyer, owner of the agency, is also a farmer and grows his own crops.  This helps him understand the perspective from both sides of the crop insurance business.


Let us help you find the insurance you want to help cover your exposures in the event of a loss. Contact us today for more information. We look forward to working with you.
