About Our Agency

Beversdorf Real Estate & Insurance was founded by Herbert Beversdorf in 1954. The agency was located in the Truck Line Auto building (Chevrolet Auto Dealership) on Main Street, Birnamwood.  Jane Resch joined her father in 1979 as his secretary, a year later becoming a licensed insurance.  Upon the death of her father in November of 1981, Jane purchased the agency from her mother and renamed it Jane Resch Birnamwood Insurance, continuing to operate out of the same office. 

Jane was then joined by her husband Joe Resch in 1985; shortly after, purchasing the Koeppel Agency in Wausau.  By 1990, Jane and Joe outgrew the office on Main Street and moved to an office located in the Truck's Place restaurant building on Hwy 45 Birnamwood.  Shortly after the move, Jane and Joe once again expanded their agency by purchasing the Roger Jensen Agency.  By 1994, the Resch's knew they needed to add another local agent to help service their client base;  Tammy Resch, a former employee of Banner Banks joined the team and was a natural fit.  Through the years, Tammy has grown with the agency and has become the Vice President.      

On the move again, Jane and Joe purchased Agency Services, Inc. of Birnamwood in 1994 and relocated in the Banner Bank building, renaming the agency Resch Birnamwood Insurance Agency, Inc.  In the same year, with great gratitude, Jane and Joe's son Alan moved back to the area heading the agency to continued success. 

In May of 1995, Alan hired Clay Zogata as an office assistant and has remained with the agency until 2016 as a licensed agent and VP of Agency Operations. The year 1996 was a thriller year for the agency as Jane Resch was named "Agent of the Year" by the Professional Insurance Agents of Wisconsin.  By 1997, the team once again outgrew their office space and decided to build a new building on Main Street in Birnamwood, the building they now occupy.  Forever keeping the Resch Insurance clients in mind, new personnel were added to serve their local insurance needs. 

In October of 2008, Gregg James, a Wausau native, became a licensed insurance agent to support the Weston area residents.  Clay & Gregg opened Resch Insurance Agency of Weston, our branch office, in September of 2009.  

Mary Jo VerHagen, a Antigo native, was added to the licensed customer support team in Birnamwood in August 2011, allowing more time for the agents to service their clients.  

Tanya (Resch) Gehrig joined our Weston team in June of 2015 and in September 2017 she moved to the Birnamwood Office. Orginally from Birnamwood, Tanya knows our client base very well and is ready to help serve our clients as needed!

Last, but not least, Jose Murillo joined our team in Birnamwood and has been a fantastic addition to our team!  

In September of 2017, the Weston Office of Resch Insurance merged with Central Wisconsin Insurance Associates (formerly Clabough Insurance from Wittenberg). The Birnamwood location remains as Resch Insurance. 

The Resch Insurance  Agency Team: Jane, Joe, Alan, Tammy, Mary Jo, Tanya, and Jose all want to Thank You for your continuous support and loyalty!

Our Providers


We have had nothing but great experiences working with Resch Insurance. We initially signed on because of Resch's fair policy rates, but have been so amazed by the Helpful, Friendly, Timely service provided by their agents. It's comforting to be able to trust that all of our insurance-related questions will be answered honestly, and any time we need assistance filing a claim, there is an accommodating agent available to help with the process.

I just wanted to tell you "thank you" for being so prompt in checking on my auto insurance premium when I called your office with concerns of the increase. I appreciate your friendliness and concern for me. It's nice to have an agent close on hand, to talk to in person or by phone. Thanks again for all your help!

Alan Resch knows how to work with insurance carriers to get my insurance needs taken care of now! Thanks Al, for all your hard work!
Brad B. - Birnamwood, WI
We used to be with another larger company. Our rates and service declined and we started shopping around. Once we started working with you we were very pleased at the personal and prompt service. Even once moving to Green Bay, you were able to provide us with quality policies at a very competitive premium. My husband and I have all of our insurance policies with you and we could not be happier. Any claims we have had were handled very professional and with top notch quality. It is always a pleasure speaking with you and you are always prompt with any questions that we might have. Every few years we like to shop around just to be sure we are getting the best plans at the best price and you have managed to provide just that.

I don't know much about insurance, so when it was time to start searching I was lost. I had called a few places for quotes but felt like just another customer. After calling Clay at Resch Insurance I felt like a friend. Not only did he give me a quote the same day but he made it simple and easy to understand. It was affordable and definitely the right choice for my family. Thanks Clay!

Tammy is so wonderful to work with. I always enjoy talking with her when I have a question. Tam is friendly and always glad to help me out when my mind can't quite get around the insurance lingo!

My first introduction to Resch Insurance was for business purposes. I walked into Resch Insurance without an appointment and was immediately greeted by a friendly and courteous staff. Agent, Clay Zogata took time out of his busy schedule to meet with me. I had spoken with many insurance agencies that day and Clay was, by far, the most courteous and friendly. Since then, I have transferred all of my business and personal insurance needs to Clay at Resch Insurance. He handles all my insurance needs with prompt and professional service. I recommend Clay to my customers and friends. I find that in the past 7 years of knowing him, he has never let me down. It's not only that he carries a variety of insurance companies to meet everyone's needs, but he is knowledgeable and can recommend which policy best fits his client's needs. I have never been let down by Clay or any of the staff of Resch Insurance. They remain my #1 recommendation.

I can't say enough about what Clay Zogata did to help my husband and I with our insurance needs, including our most recent change over to a new carrier for our rental property. Now we have our home, auto, rental and umbrella with one insurer and one agent. Allied Insurance and Resch Insurance - we couldn't be happier with the service we've received from both.
