Jeffrey Baker




Jeffrey Baker prides himself in being a team player. In fact, one of the things he believes many people are misinformed about regarding his profession is that agents are in competition with one another.

“The truth is that good agents reach out to other agencies to make sure that the clients are receiving the best coverage that is available to them,” he said. “I have been amazed that other agents have been my biggest supporters in this business. Everyone is pushing to make sure the clients come first.”

A former school assistant principal, Jeffrey is now an agent with Shelter and has been rewarded for his work by recently receiving the company’s Rising Star award. He holds a Master’s degree from MTSU in administration and supervision.

Jeffrey enjoys the opportunity to provide clients with something that protects them during a time of need. “Every day is something new and brings some challenges that help me understand my clients so I can learn how to better protect them,” he said, adding that he predicts Murfreesboro’s growth will impact his business in the years to come. “With the amazing growth in Rutherford County, this profession will also see huge growth. This will help my business grow through client referrals and retention due to our office’s great customer care.

“I’m blessed that my business is part of an amazing community of citizens of Rutherford County and I cannot wait to see what the future holds.”

Jeffrey is married to Mary Beth Baker. His son is Henry, who is seven, and he also has an 18-month-old daughter named Sara Hunter. During his spare time, he enjoys helping out at school events and spending time with friends and family.

“My friends and family are the most important things him my life,” said Jeffrey, a member of First United Methodist Church. Someone who truly cares about people, Jeffrey aims to give clients his very best and make sure they are appropriately insured.

“I’m someone that is continually trying to be the best I can be,” he said. “I like to be surrounded by people that challenge me to be better.”
