Rick Leet Agency traces its roots back to 1938 when R.H. Leet began selling insurance with the Ohio Farm Bureau. Rick joined his father, Nelson, in 1983 and helped grow the family business as an exclusive Nationwide Insurance agency. In 2020, with the fourth generation assisting Rick, the agency made the transition to an independent agency model. This transition gave us additional carriers and solutions to better meet your insurance needs.
While much has changed over the years, the agency’s core beliefs have not. We believe in and are dedicated to being a full-service insurance agency. Price is a priority; however, the correct coverages and personable customer service are more important.
When you choose our agency, you can be sure you will be working with a knowledgeable and professional team that puts your family’s or business’s needs first. Contact us today to build a relationship you can count on for generations to come.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn't purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn't have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family's financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn't have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
