Preston Schmidli - Founder / Agent

Preston Schmidli - Founder / Agent

Preston has worked in insurance for over 8 years, as an agent and agency owner for companies like Farmers Insurance, and Allstate insurance. He is most concerned with providing coverage that aligns with the client at a price they are happy with.

Outside of work, he loves to write spoken word and make music. He is currently finishing his first book of poetry to be released soon.


Preston is a great agent to work with. I had a weekend car emergency and was able to get in touch with him on a Sunday evening, and got the issue resolved. Can’t thank him enough. It’s unusual in this day and age to work with someone who is so available and willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend getting insured through Preston.

Lacey Johnson - Agency Manager

Lacey Johnson - Agency Manager

Lacey has years of experience with community engagement, social media management and leading a team. She is an integral part of our business as she makes sure that our customers are always happy with their experience.

When Lacey isn't working, she is practicing Yoga, discovering awesome music and she loves travelling to new places. (She's pretty amazing, we're lucky to have her.)


Preston and his team were really easy to work with! They were able to find an insurance package that met my needs at an affordable price. They worked around my schedule and were really understanding and patient when I needed time to look things over and compare. With their help I was able to get a lower rate than I was quoted for online, and I had to do very little work or research. I would highly recommend Friends With Benefits for all of your insurance needs.
