J&R Agency of New Hope Joins Minneapolis-Based Dyste Williams

J&R Agency of New Hope Joins Minneapolis-Based Dyste Williams

Sunbelt Business Advisors – Industry Expert when Insurance Agencies Want to Buy or Sell – Facilitates the Transaction

MINNEAPOLIS – September 9, 2020 – Sunbelt Business Advisors President Chris Jones today announced that the J & R Agency has joined Dyste Williams of Minneapolis, Minnesota, a transaction facilitated by Sunbelt Business Advisors Broker Keith Payne.

“Keith Payne is the go-to expert when it comes to buying or selling an insurance agency,” said Jones. “He takes the time to understand the real value of an agency, gives the business owner comfort with the practical aspects of the sale, and then finds the right buyers to provide for a very positive transition.”

“From the first time I met John Wasche at the J & R Agency, it was clear that he had built a great agency based on relationships, trust, and integrity,” said Payne. “Then, after meeting Josh Barrett and Allen Bosch, it was very apparent that the J & R Agency should attract a number of interested buyers, which it did!”


Started in 2001, the J & R Agency (www.jragency.com) is a full-service insurance agency, specializing in commercial insurance for hospitals, clinics, physician groups, healthcare providers, and all ancillary healthcare businesses. On August 5, J & R joined Dyste Williams (www.dystewilliams.com), an independent and local, 4th generation, family-owned insurance and risk management agency that specializes in the insurance needs of private healthcare practices.  Dyste Williams currently provides essential business coverage as well as health, life, disability and personal insurance to over 1,200 healthcare organizations in the Upper Midwest.

Ted Dyste, President & CEO of Dyste Williams appreciated the expertise that Sunbelt Business Advisors demonstrated.  “I was impressed with the skills that insurance agency expert Keith Payne brought to the transaction,” said Dyste.
