Our Team

Amy Hamm, Owner


After being a captive Allstate Insurance agent for 10 years, Amy decided to start an independent insurance brokerage to better serve customers. Amy knew that an independent agent has the ability to offer better service and lower rates by representing a multitude of highly-ranked insurance carriers who are customer-focused vs. profit and shareholder-focused.

Amy’s motto is to treat every customer with respect, courtesy, and the highest level of personalized service. Amy’s clients have remained loyal over the years because they know their insurance needs are being satisfied. Amy also strives to maintain a high level of education not only in the insurance industry, but the market as a whole, since everything is interrelated in our global economy.

Amy is a native of Washington and has worked in the financial services and banking fields prior to becoming an insurance agency owner. She has been a Bellevue resident since 2003 and has 2 sons. Amy is very active in the community, volunteers for many charities, and is an avid boater, hiker, and skier.

Amy has a Bachelors of Arts degree in Urban Studies and is Licensed in Property, Casualty, Life, & Disability Insurance in the State of Washington.

Insurance Connections Northwest, Inc.

Insurance companies are some of the biggest advertisers on TV and radio. They all claim they will save you money if you call them – it’s their way of getting you to check their rates. They can’t guarantee the lowest price because there are too many variables for most policies.

Insurance Connections NW cuts through the marketing hype and gives you facts and information to find you the lowest priced option with a quality insurance company. As independent brokers, Amy and Lorna work for their clients and are not employees of any insurance company.

Insurance Connections NW has access to a wide array of insurance products, and Amy and Lorna can shop the best rate for its customers. They will continue to professionally service your account throughout its existence and guarantee customer satisfaction.
