About Us

For more than 80 years our agency has been serving Okanogan County and North Central Washington by offering a wide variety of insurance products. VIP Agency has licensed agents specializing in home, auto, business, life, health, farm and crop policies. Our access to numerous insurance carriers allows us to find the right placement for any risk at competitive rates. Our offices are located in Oroville, Tonasket, Omak, Winthrop, Twisp, Brewster, Chelan, and Yakima.

We are an independent agency and offer a wide choice of products because we represent dozens of insurance companies. Our agents are committed to crafting the best possible coverage for your individual needs at the most competitive price.

The VIP Agency is a locally owned company which was originally opened in Winthrop, WA in the 1920s. In 1972 the agency was renamed The V.I.P. Agency Inc and has continued to serve our communities as an agency group since that time. We take pride in being a part of the local community and work hard to support the families of our employees as well as those of our clients and community.

The VIP Agency currently has eight office locations in Oroville, Tonasket, Omak, Winthrop, Twisp, Brewster, Chelan, and Yakima and is owned by Mike Bourn who has been serving the insurance needs of our community for over 35 years.  Mike has a team of agents who have experience in writing and servicing many types of accounts ranging from Personal and Commercial Insurance to Farm/Crop Insurance.

VIP Insurance is an independent agency.

This means we can shop more than a dozen insurance carriers to find a personalized policy to fit your budget while also covering all of your needs. Most agencies in Okanogan County are “captive agencies” meaning, they can only sell insurance for one preferred company. When you choose VIP Agency, you have the benefit of getting rates from multiple carriers all while working with the friendly, knowledgeable staff of your local, hometown insurance agency.

You’ll find that the excellent customer service you receive while setting up your insurance policy is just the beginning. We will continue to work with you on your insurance portfolio to fit your ever changing needs and make sure you are always protected. We will also continue to compare rates for you to ensure you are always getting the best value. The added bonus of using a local insurance agency is that in the event of a loss, you will have an advocate in your hometown area to assist you with any claims questions.

As a local agency, we have a vested interest in protecting the members of our community and we hope that you will trust us to help you get the protection that you need and deserve.

At VIP Insurance Agency every client is a Very Important Person. Take your first step towards better service and contact one of our eight local offices.

Agency is licensed in the following states: Arizona, California, Idaho, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington
