Travis was born and raised in Independence, Missouri. His love of entrepreneurship started at an early age, at age 14 he started his own lawncare business.   Travis graduated from Blue Springs South High School where he played soccer and wrestled while also building his business.   After graduation, Travis moved to the small town of Lamoni, Iowa where he attended Graceland University and played Soccer.  His love of entrepreneurship flourished while at Graceland with his involvement in Students in Free Enterprise.  He graduated with a degree in Business Administration and emphasis in Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise.

After spending a couple years buying and renovating several rental properties, Travis decided it was time to move on to another project. He moved back to Kansas City and obtained his first insurance license while at the same time started teaching business classes and coaching soccer at a local high school.  After 4 years teaching, Travis decided it was time to solve another need and opted for early retirement from teaching and purchased into a marketing franchise. In charge of Iowa and Illinois, Travis assembled a team and quickly grew sales the first six months.  Unfortunately the parent company closed due to bad management which forced Travis to shut down his operations.  Realizing he needed to be in complete control of his outcome, Travis decided he needed to get back into insurance where if he failed, it was only due to his efforts.

Protection through Education because insurance is not as simple as many people would like to believe.  We show you options others won’t and can’t.  If you want an honest evaluation for your situation, give us a call now, you won’t be disappointed.

In 2006 Travis Gensler started the agency as an agent for Farmers Insurance, but quickly found that his trusted clients had needs that he could not meet with products from just one company.  Travis made the transition to a fully Independent Agent and is now a Trusted Insurance Advocate for his clients by working with them to provide many custom options to help meet their protection needs.

Beacon Point was created with the knowledge of how hard it is to get started in the insurance industry.  Since Travis experienced the frustration firsthand of  being thrown through the Farmers Insurance agent development system,  he noticed how many good potential agents were sucked in, painted a pretty picture knowing they have no chance of success, then let down by an inefficient training system. The worst part was they were being forced to sell only one policy from one company,  and had to quit in the first 6 months because they could not generate enough business to live on.  His new mission was to create a system that would help those same people have a real chance to fulfill their true potential and provide real solutions to the clients they work with.

Many agents say they are there for you but only an Independent Agent can really offer you a TRUE custom solution.  If you are looking for a friend on the inside who will tell you the truth about how your coverages work for you and which companies are better suited to provide the right type of policy, you need to visit with Travis Gensler or one of his associates at Beacon Point Insurance Group.  15 minutes might save you 15% with some companies, but investing that 15 minutes with Travis Gensler or one of his associates could save you much more than that, including but not limited to insurance headaches, unpaid claims, 1-800 call center run about, etc.  Having the right advocate in your corner is priceless!

Thank you so much for all of your help with finalizing my health insurance. It appears that I’m all set now. I couldn’t have figured all that out without you. Thanks again,
