Hometown Agents in Dubuque and Dyersville, IA

The English Insurance Agency of Dyersville, IA and the O’Connor & English Insurance Agency of Dubuque, IA have been serving Dubuque, Dyersville and surrounding communities for over 65 years. Our dedication to the community is deeper than insuring families and businesses. As members of the Dubuque Chamber of Commerce, and Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce and supporters of many other local organizations, we strive to make our part of Iowa a better place.


You may think you want the cheapest insurance you can find, but realize you may not be getting everything you bargained for. While most insurance products are similar in price and function, insurance providers are very different when it comes to structuring a policy that actually covers you. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all insurance policy.

We’re your neighbors. We protect businesses and people we know and care about, and that means we look for ways to protect you better, including carefully choosing the insurance companies we represent to be both affordable and responsive.


We make giving back a part of our everyday life—from “paying” to wear jeans every Friday and donating the proceeds to the Iowa Children’s Hospital to ringing the bell for the Salvation Army outside local stores around the holidays.

We also donate to and support the United Way in Dubuque, Shop with a Cop, Shoes that Fit, the Colts Drum and Bugle Corp, DuRide, Dubuque County Fair, Alzheimer's Foundation, Dyersville Health Foundation, Dyersville Downtown Market, and various fundraisers for local fire departments and schools.


Tim English is on the Board of Directors at Mercy Hospital and Ellen Kennedy Living Center, and on the board for Dyersville Economic Development. He’s also a member of the Knights of Columbus, Lions Club, and AOH.
