Get to know Matthias

Matthias Allred
Insurance Advisor / Agency Owner

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little bit better. For those of you who don’t already know me, I have a great passion for my work and I love life. I believe you should play as hard as you work and life is meant to be enjoyed.

There are two activities outside of work that I absolutely love. I love spending time with the family and love being outdoors. It seems easy to get caught up in work and life at the office and making sure to take time to enjoy life is important.

Our family loves getting outdoors, especially on the water, and spending time together.

Time to Play

It’s become an annual tradition for my brothers and friends to head down to Moab each spring for some 4-wheeling and hiking (and just some good old hang’n out)

I also love traveling. I have had the opportunity to see some great places, but I think Alaska and Hawaii are my two favorites.

PS, did I tell you I love to eat BBQ overlooking the Ocean (with my beautiful wife)?

Here’s The Business Stuff and
why I love what I do.

One of my favorite quotes is from Zig Ziglar,

“You can have everything in life that you want if you will
just help enough other people get what they want.”

That’s my goal, that’s my passion.

My clients will tell you that I value relationships over their business and that I’m not into the typical high pressure sales thing. I prefer to advise my clients on all insurance options and suggest the best fit for their situation. I love working with great people and I love working hard to take care of them. And, I have found that as I work hard for my clients they usually introduce me to more great people they know.

After I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance, I started my career as personal account rep with a local credit union. I soon discovered that I had a talent for helping people make sense of financial matters.  It gave me great satisfaction to sit down with a client and outline how they can not only save money, but improve their family’s financial future. Now, I like to consider myself more of a consultant rather than just an insurance agent. Anyone can get you an insurance policy; it takes listening, understanding, and proper planning to put you into the right kind of policy that protects you and your family.

My philosophy is that “it is your family, your future and your life. My job is to give you the tools, education, and options to help make the right choice for your family.”

Fun Facts About Matthias

I grew up in a small town in central Utah. I am the second oldest of seven kids and I often wonder how my amazing parents ever pulled it off. In our family, there are 3 boys, and then 4 girls, in that order.

One of the highlights of my youth was receiving my Eagle Scout Award along with my 2 brothers. {pic}

I also had the great privilege of serving a 2 year mission for the LDS church. I served in the North Carolina Charlotte Mission, where I gained a great respect for Southern Hospitality. {pic}

I cut the tip of my thumb off when I was 25. Most of the time I don’t notice it (expect when I’m trying to get a LARGE drink from the drive thru). You’ll have to ask for pics if you want to see it.

My favorite drink is Mtn Dew and my favorite time of year is the fall, especially when I’m in the mountains.

I currently live in South Jordan with my family and have enjoyed getting to know those in our community. Our oldest son is heavily involved in sports and it’s been great getting to know others in the area who are also involved with these activities.
