The Van Engelenhoven Agency has been around since 1962. We are the largest family-owned, independent insurance agency in the region, and collectively, we have decades of experience in creating customized solutions for our clients.

At The Van Engelenhoven Agency, we do one thing. Insurance. And we take seriously our desire to be experts in it.

Master of One

Instead of using the “jack-of-all-trades” approach, we build experts by having each team member focus on specific areas within insurance. The result is a deeper level of knowledge, better service and an uncommon level of dedication to the areas of insurance most important to you. We can meet you where you’re at simply because we’ve probably been there. We’ve grown up on the farm, had real-world business experience, served on boards and we’ve volunteered and given generously to some of the same organizations you’re passionate about. We go to the same restaurants, live in the same neighborhoods and share similar values. We work as insurance professionals – but it’s the relationships we value most.

Thorough, Professional Agents Dedicated to Service

Insurance is all about the details. Service is all about you. At the Van Engelenhoven Agency, we like to ask questions. We want to bring a strong knowledge of your situation to the table when we consider which companies to propose, what limits to recommend and additional coverages to discuss. Our ultimate goal is to equip you with a sound insurance strategy that best manages your risk while educating you on how that customized strategy will protect your family or business. It’s not enough to send a quick quote and ask for a signature. We value communication and building a level of trust and relationship with our customers from the very beginning.

Strength in Numbers for an Exceptional Experience

With a 19-member team of dedicated insurance professionals, your experience at our agency may feel a little different. Better different. You’ll still meet with one of our agents to develop a risk management strategy. You’ll still be able to communicate with that agent whenever you need a question answered or a policy updated. But when you choose to partner with us, you’ll literally partner with us. You can be confident that a team of people are managing your account, not just your agent. You can be sure that we’ll put our combined 315 years of insurance experience to work when you have a unique situation arise. And you can trust that after 55 years of service and counting, the Van Engelenhoven Agency is just getting started.
