Schwaller Insurance

All About Us

About Us

Over 65 Years!

That makes a statement, doesn't it? In 1955, Ray Schwaller began our agency with one simple tenet in mind: "Take care of your customers and they will take care of you." We maintain a talented staff who care about your needs- we're not here to just sell you an insurance policy. Being customer focused, Schwaller Insurance Agency is one of Chicagolands most preferred insurance agencies, garnering respect from our long time customers and the companies we represent. We provide the highest quality insurance services at very competitive prices, and simply, we know insurance. Ray Schwaller set the standard of commitment to his clients, and now his son Mike and daughter Nancy continue his tradition as the principals of Schwaller Insurance Agency.


Over the years Ray and Schwaller Insurance Agency have earned a superior reputation for integrity, honesty and sincerity from clients and the insurance companies we represent.Ray believed then, as he does now, that he could deliver the highest quality financial protection from the best insurers with the highest levels of customer care, all at a competitive price.


Schwaller Insurance Agency offers personal, commercial, life, health and a host of insurance services to a most loyal clientele, to whom Ray has always attributed success. We are proud to play a part in assuring the the safety, security and well being of those we serve.



We take the responsibility and the trust our clients place in us in the highest regard. Being a business, the following statement may sound contrarian: Simply selling you a policy is not our primary objective. Making sure you are aware of and have the proper protection in place is our duty. Ray's philosophy in business is straightforward: "Take care of your customers and your customers will take care of you."


Ray has instilled these basic principles in the Schwaller Insurance Agency family of employees, and his own children. Today, Schwaller Insurance Agency is a family business serving the community. Ray, together with his daughter Nancy and his son Michael continue to serve our clients following the tenets of integrity, service, and duty.

Nancy is a 1987 University of Illinois at Champaign graduate. Nancy began working in the agency in high school as a file clerk. In college, Nancy continued working for the agency in an operations and accounting assistant capacity. Upon graduation, Nancy worked outside the agency for a few years garnering business experience she brought with her upon her return in 1990. Nancy is now an agency principal and the President of Schwaller Insurance Agency, Inc. and has her Certified Insurance Counselor designation.

Michael graduated from Indiana University, Bloomington in 1991. Upon graduation, Mike worked for Safeco Insurance Company as an underwriter until he joined the agency in 1993. Mike also worked for the agency in high school and college starting as a file clerk, later becoming responsible for home inspections, developing proper replacement cost coverage. Mike, together with Nancy is an agency principal and corporate officer.
