FH Member Feature: Jeremy Buurma helps families plan for the future

In the heart of Clovis, NM, Firehouse Workspace is home to a vibrant community of professionals, including Jeremy Buurma, a financial representative with Modern Woodmen of America. Jeremy's journey to his current career is a testament to his passion for helping others and his commitment to personal growth.

Previously, Jeremy spent over a decade working at a local community bank, where he gained invaluable experience in the financial industry. However, he felt a calling to pursue a more direct role in guiding individuals and families toward their financial goals. "When the opportunity presented itself, I had to take it," Jeremy recalls. "It felt like something I needed to do, and the change has been great."

As a financial representative, Jeremy specializes in providing comprehensive services such as life insurance, retirement planning, investments, and tailored financial strategies. His approach is driven by a genuine desire to understand his clients' unique circumstances and build lasting relationships built on trust.

"The first time working with a client, they were so excited to get life insurance," Jeremy reflects. "They loved the process and appreciated the time taken to learn about them. Those types of moments, which still happen today, make this profession very rewarding. I love that I can help someone plan for their future and build that relationship and trust to make a meaningful impact."

While his career brings immense fulfillment, Jeremy acknowledges the challenges that come with being a financial professional. "It's easy to be discouraged, unmotivated, and lose focus in this career," he explains. "It's important to continually 'think right' and keep running your business on good days and not-so-good days. I think of this career as a marathon, rather than a sprint."

Jeremy's commitment to his profession is matched by his dedication to his family, who he cites as his primary source of fuel and drive. "I am blessed to have an amazing and supportive wife, and two young boys," he says. "It was one of the reasons I chose this career. I wanted a career that allowed me to be involved with my family."

Beyond his professional and personal pursuits, Jeremy embraces his self-proclaimed "goofy nerd" side, indulging in beloved movie franchises like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. He also enjoys grilling and spending summer nights in his backyard, cherishing the simple pleasures of life.

At Firehouse Workspace, Jeremy found a professional environment that aligns with his values and aspirations. "I immediately loved the look of the building," he recalls. "I wanted a space that was professional, and the Firehouse provided that and much more. I love having clients come to my office. I usually show them around the entire Firehouse. It's modern, professional, and just plain cool."

Looking to the future, Jeremy hopes to further solidify Modern Woodmen's presence in the Clovis community by hosting social and educational events for clients. He also aspires to expand his team, allowing them to make an even greater impact on the lives of local families.

With his unwavering dedication, genuine care for his clients, and the support of the Firehouse Workspace community, Jeremy Buurma is poised to continue making strides in his career, helping families navigate their financial journeys with confidence and clarity.
