About Us

At Carlson Insurance Group, our customers told us they were looking for something different. They want a company that will look after their insurance needs as if they they were their own. They would like their business and personal needs to be covered without having to worry about it. And we listened! That mandate is what has made us one of the Nashville region’s best providers of car, home, business, commercial, and life insurance.

Carlson Insurance Group thrives on more than 64 years of combined industry experience.  We have worked with companies of all sizes, from businesses that employ over hundred people to individuals working out of their homes. We will explore a number of the best insurance options available, and compare those options to your current policies and coverage. We then individually tailor coverage for you at both the company and individual levels.

Carlson Insurance Group’s record of superior customer service comes directly from founder Matt Carlson. He knows the value of hard work and client relationships. To pay for his college degree from Minnesota State University in Moorhead, MN., he sold educational books door to door for four years with the Southwestern Co.  While sitting down with thousands of families, Matt recognized that families are the most concerned with providing a good home, providing a good education and providing safety for their families.

In 2002, he began working as a Marketing Development Trainee with Federated Mutual Insurance Co., based in Southern Minnesota. Matt quickly worked his way up at Federated as first a Marketing Development Trainee, Marketing Representative, District Sales Manager and ultimately a Senior Marketing Representative. Matt’s experience ranged from small to mid-sized business markets, with an extensive background in estate planning, and life and disability insurance—while he earned the Life Underwriter Training Council (LUTCF) designation.

With an award winning career and more than a decade’s experience in hand, Matt launched Carlson Insurance Group in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. He understands that most of us don’t like to spend a lot of time thinking about insurance—but we like knowing we’re covered. Carlson Insurance Group looks at insurance… a little different. Let us worry about your insurance so you can get on with your life. We look forward to the opportunity to work on your insurance needs.

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, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy — 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, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
