Chris Lyon


Conveniently located on Venice Island WE Insure is your first choice for all your insurance needs. I have lived in Florida for most of my life and have seen the area grow from a sleepy retirement community to international destination.  I started my carrier in the mortgage finance business and after 20 years of working for a Fortune 500 company and starting my own brokerage I move into the insurance industry in 2009.  I started off specializing in home and auto coverage with strong ties to the local real estate market.  WE now offer coverage from Builders Risk to Umbrellas and all of the toys in between

From the start of my business carrier I have had a customer motto the I believe sets me above the competition.  “Because the customer has a need I have a job to do!  "Because the customer has a choice, I must be the better choice!  Because the customer has urgency, I must be quick!  Because the customer has high expectations, I must excel!  Because the customer has influence, I have the hope for more customers!"

We are a family run agency and look forward to providing you and your family with excellent coverage for years to come.  We Insure empowers customers, offering better ways to buy insurance.  Customers need choice, speed, convenience and confidence in the company and people protecting their assets.  We represent over 140 top rated insurance to make sure We have the right coverage for you.  Please give us a call, send us an email or come by the office.

After receiving a bill for renewal of my homeowners insurance that I thought was out of line, I decided to shop around. I was referred to Chris Lyon at We Insure Venice by my neighbor, and was very happy with the policy they came up with for me. Along with a much better price than I had been paying, they also helped me negotiate a workable timeline for making the minor repairs required to meet the insurance company's underwriting guidelines. Changing homeowner's insurance coverage can be a stressful undertaking, especially with an older house; Chris did a very good job for me.

Donald Bullion
Chris has been very professional and kind in our communications, I would have given a 5 but I am currently having a problem signing my final paperwork with Progressive due to my not having a computer or phone that will sign electronically. I do have a chrome computer.

Chris Lyon is professional, courteous, and has great follow through. He was referred to me by a friend and I'm glad of it. If my choice of insurer, FrontLine (homeowners), provides the same level of service as Chris, I'll be a happy camper. Time will tell about that, of course. But I'll definitely refer friends and others to Chris as the occasion arises. 10/6/21 Edit: We were so pleased with Chris' help with our homeowners insurance we also switched over our auto insurance to him; to Mercury. He flawlessly handled the transition for us. We needed to make a couple of last minute changes to our policy, and he did so without a hitch. Both FrontLine and Mercury have competitive rates too. I highly recommend Chris! PS - For what's is worth... If you haven't switched homeowners insurance in a while - it'd been several years since we had - get ready to do a little hoop jumping. I guess all insurers are doing this, from what I've heard.

I worked with Chris. I was moving here from out of state. He is a local so he understands the needs and issues of insurance in the state of Florida. He was always responsive in getting back to me and provided a competitive home insurance quote. I would highly recommend him.

Love Cindy Perkins!!!!
Lily Stark
Chris was easy to deal with and got me a much better rate than I did alone with Progressive. He dropped my premium over $500/yr. and I was a diamond 10 year customer of Progressive. This is how that company repaid me for being so loyal....they upped my premiums every year without one claim ever!!!! I will let the professionals handle finding a reputable company from now on.
