Marty Turner

Owner & Licensed Agent

Marty Turner became the sole owner of Sandbergen Insurance on November 15, 2012. He changed the agency name to “The Turner Insurance Advisor Group, Inc.”

Marty had been with the former Sandbergen Insurance for 15 years and started with the humblest of beginnings and no experience.

He worked his way through the agency and eventually became the top commercial insurance producer within the agency. Hard work, dedication and honesty have allowed Marty a wonderful opportunity to serve Tampa Bay and the company’s valued clients for so many years. Standing on the pillars of hard work and educating the public about the importance of properly insuring your assets, Marty also ensures his employees have up-to-date education, and provides a mentoring environment to every employee in his agency. He specializes in Association insurance coverage, but has the education and extensive knowledge to insure even the most difficult situations.
