Every Minnesota Patriot Has a Story
When Brock Tatge started the Brock Tatge Agency in 1997, he never knew the incredible success his brand would produce. Before he ever called himself a patriot, Brock was passionate about his client’s insurance success and rallied behind them every step of the way. His focus on long-term relationships and excellent customer service directed his insurance approach, believing that people mattered more than capital.
In 2018, his independent agency changed names to the Patriot Insurance Brokers, still retaining his zeal to be a local insurance agent who genuinely cared for his clients. However, he decided to expand the Patriot family to serve others better by offering more insurance types. Brock purchased Blue Chip Insurance Services in 2019 to achieve this dream while keeping his agency’s primary insurance specialty toward Medicare.
As of 2021, both brands have merged into the new Patriot Insurance Brokers that exist today: a passionate group of experienced agents that get excited about seeing you win. Every initial consultation is an invitation to join the Patriots and raise the banner to your insurance victories. They are committed to your lifelong insurance service and care by reevaluating your current plan and offering new lines that best suit your needs.
Our Minnesota Patriots Fight with Purpose
Unlike other Minnesota brokers solely concerned about earning their next dollar, our team serves you with purpose. Our company model and team values are intentional and go further than the average insurance company. From the initial consultation to the package offering and yearly insurance evaluations, we fight on your behalf with a mission in mind:
To provide comprehensive insurance packages with affordable rates that meet our client’s needs and serve them for a lifetime.
A patriot is defined as someone who loves their country and is ready to boldly defend it, which is how we approach the insurance industry. You are the country we passionately fight for and lay down our lives to protect in every circumstance. We will not rest until our expert agents find the best insurance policy on the market and we have taken care of you.
We’re a Force of Passionate Minnesota Patriots

Personal Line Expert
