Great Florida Insurance Company is locally owned and operated, right here in Gateway. That’s the first thing that owner Michelle Accola wants you to know, that she lives and raises her family here and her agency is focused on serving you, her neighbor. “My husband Jeremy and I and our three kids Mia (age 8), Jeremy Jr. (age 6) and Myles (age 1) live work and play in Gateway, a place we have come to love.” 

The Accola family moved to Hampton Park in 2008 to serve the community. We’re literally your next-door neighbor. It’s being a neighbor that she believes elevates her service to maintain a credible reputation by chiefly doing right by her customers. “We feel blessed to be a part of such a welcoming community. We’re proud to call Gateway home and we consider our neighbors like our extended family.”

Great Florida Insurance Company brings strength to Insurance buying as they have many A-rated carriers. Michelle’s vast experience in the industry helps, “I’ve spent a great deal of time working with claims so I bring that facet of the business to my work.” Michelle is the perfect person to call when you need to focus on mitigating a loss. “I can advise on how the process will unfold and what steps our customers will need to take.” This also helps her recommend on the front end as to what coverage her clients will need. Michele continues, “I am so proud and excited to represent our community as the local agent representative of such a great company.” 

The Accola family belongs to St. John XXX where Father Bob married Jeremy and Michelle and has baptized all three of their children. Michelle’s relationship was notably solidified during their time volunteering for the Red Cross at Germain Arena, in September of 2005. Michelle’s experience began during college, where she graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology & Criminal Justice. After religious studies, she would enter the workforce as an auto claim adjuster. Then, the transition to a General Lines Agent after acquiring her insurance license. Sometime later, she found herself working at Gartner, but her life would lead her into operating her own business. Now, with Great Florida Insurance, she is able to enjoy family planning, social outings, and of course, her community in the Gateway area.
