  • "As new business owners there are so many things we have had to learn. Derrick at English Insurance Agency has been there for us every step of the way. He doesn't just tell us what we need, he explains why we need it. When you add in great pricing we couldn’t be happier, we will soon be switching our home and auto to Derrick as well."

I would highly recommend English Insurance and Derrick for all your insurance needs."

From the receptionist to one of their agents, Tammy Klein, all are very knowledgeable about this complicated business. I’m no spring chicken and even I find their website extremely easy to use. I would absolutely recommend O’Connor & English to everyone. And I have!"

  • “A few years ago, we requested quotes from numerous insurance agencies after our daughter’s auto insurance increased. Tammy Klein from O’Connor & English Insurance Agency took the time to analyze our current insurance policies (Auto, Home, Personal Articles, Umbrella) and was able to make some excellent recommendations. Our insurance costs are now less with the same or even better coverage. I have known Tammy for many years and she is a woman with great integrity, work ethic, and one of the nicest persons I know. Tammy also is committed to making this world a better place through her work in the community. I highly recommend Tammy and O’Connor & English Insurance Agency!"

    - Kirby Snitker

Tammy has always been great about keeping us informed of new insurance options and cost saving ideas. She has also been a good resource for insurance needs for other members of our family. We have recommended O'Connor & English Insurance Agency to many friends. We appreciate what they do for us."

    - Jim and Bernita Gilbertson

  • "I love working with O’Connor & English. I first started working with them when we bought our first house. They are the same agents my parents had used for years. They always find the best home and auto policy that will work for my family and not break our budget! We have gone through 3 accidents (not our fault) and have had our hand held through the process every time. I have a teenage driver and there have been many times when Tammy has taken the time to go over what I need to do in order to get the best policy at the lowest price. I would never switch agents since they treat me like family here!"

    - Michelle Ariss

  • "The team at English Insurance is a delight to work with! They have taken the time to get to know us personally so they can make sure that our insurance coverage fits our life and our farming business. Derrick and Joyce have been able to answer our questions, and have done extra leg work to make sure our coverage works for us. We appreciate their help, and knowledge in finding us the appropriate coverage."

    - Jason and Jenny Domeyer

  • "When it comes time to use your insurance, it gives you peace of mind that you can make one call and know the person on the other end is there to help. English Insurance's dedicated associates are there to make sure you and your family are covered in every aspect of life and, when needed, fight for you with your claim."

    - Rob

  • "Interstate Pipe has partnered with O'Conner Insurance, and now O'Connor-English Insurance for many many years. Sue Miller has been constant for us through the years. I know I can count on Sue's knowledge, expertise, and integrity to make sure we are getting the best service and coverages that are available to us."

    - Peter Weis


  • "O’Connor & English has been a great move for Skyline. Answers are only a phone call away. Learning about our business they have offered solutions and advice for handling claims and protecting our family business!"

    - Ben Arthofer


  • "I would highly recommend Derrick Parsons with English Insurance Agency. He has gone over and above what I have ever imagined as an insurance agent. I was fighting with our former insurance company with no help from our previous insurance agent. I had become so frustrated that I contacted Derrick to see what I should do. Derrick stepped in right away to help us. At that point after seeing how Derrick went over and above to help us, I immediately cancelled our insurance with our former insurance agent and went with Derrick with English Insurance Agency. In this day and age, customer service means everything to us as a company and as an individual. "

  • “We just want to commend Amy at English Insurance for her exceptional service. Amy promptly answers our questions and concerns and she possess excellent knowledge to get matters resolved quickly.
    The process of obtaining insurance, adding/removing vehicles, and asking further questions has been a breeze because we work with a friendly and knowledgeable agent.
    The few times we had to utilize our coverage, like when a storm damaged our home or vehicles had fender benders, we contacted Amy at English Insurance and she took care of everything for us. The insurance adjuster was prompt and paid us by check on the spot.
    Thank you for taking care of the Tegeler family insurance needs.”
  • “Our company, Key City Investment Co, has done business with Sue Miller at O’Connor and English for 35 years. We have entrusted all of our insurance needs to her. Sue is a pleasure to work with- steadfastly professional in every way. She draws on a vast wealth of knowledge on which I may rely and wholeheartedly recommend her.”
