About us

Our Story

Robbins Insurance Group is located in Branson, Missouri. The company was founded in early 2018 by Blake Robbins. Blake, and his wife Katherine, love the scenic Ozark Mountains and the Branson community. Working with RIG is a different insurance experience: the process is simple. Meet the team who is dedicated to finding coverage centered around your needs.


I don't feel you can truly do your clients justice unless you really know and understand them. From there, I love deepening the relationship through consistent follow up. That way I can be there as life changes and in turn their needs change. Many of my clients have become great friends, that's just my personality, and I love that aspect of my business!

With 9 years in insurance, Blake uses his experience to solve clients’ problems. Blake loves connecting with people, learning about them, and finding out what is important in their life. The next step is to create an individualized plan for the client. Blake is very intentional with his clients, ensuring that each client clearly understands their coverages.
