Matt McGarr has been a Florida resident since 1992 and a St. Lucie County resident since 2003. He got his start in the insurance industry in 2015, when he received a college internship with a captive insurance agency in Fort Pierce. He was hired by that agent when his internship ended, and insurance has been his full time job and his number one focus ever since. In his time working for this agent, he learned the values of relationship building, always acting in the client’s best interest, empowerment, and providing an unbeatable level of customer service. This became the foundation for the values that he and his team exemplify daily at McGarr Insurance.
Matt was looking for an opportunity that would allow him to best serve his future clients, and he saw independent agency as that opportunity. As a result, he left the captive agency in 2018 and joined an independent agency in Palm City. He worked underneath that agent for a year, continuing to learn the business and building toward his own business in the meantime. In June of 2019 he was ready to open McGarr Insurance, whose goal is, and always will be, to empower his clients to protect their assets and loved ones so that they can focus on the things that are most important to them.
In his free time, Matt enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Ashley, their cats, Kriya and Gandhi, and his local friends and family.
