Eldin Alagic
Administrative Assistant

I was originally born in Bosnia, but moved to North Dakota very early where I was raised in Mandan. I graduated from Mandan High and went to school at University Of North Dakota for Banking and Finance. Throughout school I was constantly involved in sports and any activities that gave me an excuse to go outside and meet new people. I’ve always enjoyed helping others, and with this agency, I’m excited to give the clients the best help that they need with their insurance. In my free time (if the weather permits) I enjoy anything outside whether that be golfing, fishing, or going on the pontoon in the river.
