Wirtjes Agency is a family-owned company established in 1949. As an independent agency, we write for approximately 20 different companies. This allows us to find the best value for our customers. At Wirtjes Agency, we put relationships above sales. We prefer to educate our customers on available coverages and the pros and cons of different policies, allowing them to make informed decisions. We have even been known to refer customers to a different agency if that agency has companies that can better meet the customer’s needs. The primary goal of our agency is not to sell policies, but to make sure our customer’s insurance needs are met. We were recently endorsed by Dave Ramsey, and are the only agency he recommends in all of Northwestern Illinois.
Luke and Alicia Glendenning are third generation owners of Wirtjes Agency. Luke has over 16 years of experience in the insurance industry with expertise in home, auto, small to medium business, farm, crop, health, and life insurance. Together they serve customers in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Georgia. Zach Jones joined their team in 2015 after completing his internship, and Nathaniel Schexnayder is currently working through the internship program. At Wirtjes Agency, we are committed to making sure our customers have the coverage they need at the best possible value.
