The Resource Center
My name is Matt Gardner and I am a local independent insurance agent here in Springfield, Missouri. I am originally from Branson, Missouri and moved to Springfield in 2000 after returning from 5 years of service in the United States Navy as a cryptologist.
Upon returning from active duty, I received my Bachelors degree from Missouri State in Physical Education with hopes of teaching and coaching. While attending college I was introduced to the insurance business and fell in love with it immediately. I have been an insurance agent for the past 11 years with The Resource Center, a local family-owned independent insurance agency.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Sarah for almost 2 years and she works at Mercy hospital as an orthopedic registered nurse. We are both brand new parents. My wife gave birth to our daughter Paige Lynn in Jan 2014.
My approach to my business is to put my customer’s needs first and provide them with the best service possible. Insurance can be very confusing and it is important to me that I help my customers understand it so that they can make an informed decision.
I represent many A-rated companies which allow me to provide the most competitive price. If you would like to review or shop your current insurance rates do not hesitate to call me.
