Sage Kohler, ChFC®, CLU®, CASL®




State Farm
Agent/Owner

Although she received her marketing degree from the “other” UT (University of Texas
at Austin), Sage Kohler defines herself as a true Tennessee Vols fan and a happy resident of East Tennessee.

“When I decided to leave my corporate role at State Farm, I thought I’d go back to Texas, but
an opportunity became available in the Knoxville area, and the company asked me to consider it. I wasn’t interested at first, but they asked me to go to Knoxville for a week with my husband before deciding. Three days in, as we sat in Adirondack chairs with glasses of wine in hand, looking over the marina and water, chatting with new friends, we knew this was the place for us.”

Kohler is passionate about education; she values the opportunity to teach others about
insurance and financial products. “I want to assist people in understanding their insurance (auto, renters, homeowners, health, and life) and the benefits their company might/might not offer (disability, group life, 401k),” she explained. “I like to be able to sit down with people and help them piece it all together to make sure they comprehend everything and are making wise choices.”

Kohler encourages people to delay gratification, knowing it may mean a better life for them
in the future. “My ideal client is someone who has a willingness to learn and make changes in their financial portfolio based on what they want later,” she said.

“Folks that have a goal whether it be to buy a home, fund a child’s education, protect themselves and their assets or plan for retirement are the people that I value conversations with.”

“I can help make their plan or dream a reality,” she continued. “As State Farm’s mission
says, ‘we help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams.’”

    It’s just too dang hot. No, we’re not going on a month-long fast. I’ve found ways to keep us fed without cranking up the stove. We’ll eat out more. What a privilege to be seated in an air conditioned dining room, sipping a cold glass of prosecco or a slightly dirty martini, perusing a menu filled with all kinds of goodies...
