A Family Tradition:
Founded in 1961 by Norbert Butz, the agency has grown to locations across the St. Louis metro area. Together Steve Butz (President) and Mike Butz (Vice President) have helped Crawford-Butz evolve into a modern independent agency. In 2016 Maria and her dad (President, Steve Butz) decided to bring the family tradition westward, opening a branch in Kansas City and maintaining the agency's family atmosphere, personal approach, and industry expertise.

The Kansas City staff is here for our customers, remaining proactive, accessible, and responsive to any questions or concerns on coverage, billing, and claims.
