Check out some kind words from our clients.
I wanted to reach to say how much I appreciate all the help that the Ned Gulbransen Agency has been to me and my construction company, TMD Construction Inc, for the past several years. I especially appreciate my agent, Gina, who is always prompt with documents needed to operate my business, and a pleasure to do business with. Gina has been the best agent for my company, and the Ned Gulbransen Agency will continue to have my business for years to come.
Thomas Mogavero President, TMD Construction Inc.
The Gulbransen Agency has provided home and auto insurance for our family for more than 30 years, and business insurance for the last 13 years. I’ve had the pleasure to work with Gina Highland on my business insurance. Gina has always provided me with good advice, excellent service, and great value in all my business insurance coverage. As my business has grown, Gina has worked with me to adjust and modify a variety of insurance products needed to run a small business. Gina is one of the professionals I depend upon to help make my business a success.

D’Lynne Patino, Office Manager – Fox Valley Construction Group Inc.
We highly recommend the Gulbransen Insurance Agency and agent Gina Highland:
We have been a customer since we started our business in 2004. We later added our personal insurance with the Agency.
Gina is extremely knowledgeable about our construction industry insurance requirements. She is quick to respond to our questions and any problems we encounter. We have been contacted by many other insurance agencies, but we would not consider changing to another agency.
Haynes and Peggy Willis – Curb Cutters, Inc.
We have been clients of the Gulbransen Agency for over 10 years. We got to know Ned through his work on the West Chicago District #33 Foundation. The integrity and personal interest he exhibited there made him our first choice when we decided to change insurance agencies. Our experience with Ned (and Safeco Insurance) has been very satisfactory. Our auto insurance claims have been handled promptly, and satisfactorily. Fortunately, we have not submitted any homeowners claims. Not only does Ned help us with the obvious auto & homeowner insurance requirements, he routinely forwards insurance news and issues that may be of interest.
Andy Walton Wheaton, Il
I just wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for helping us with our insurance needs. I have had more interaction with you over the last couple of years than I did with my previous company for ten years and you saved us money. With all the choices out there, I must say that you have made it easy to stay with your company. The level of service you provide shows that you care more about the customer than the premiums. I am proud to recommend you and your company to all my friends and family.
Dan Eichelberger State Bank of Illinois
You can buy coverage anywhere but getting great insurance is a different matter. The Gulbransen Agency is a step up. They know who you are and they want to help. No question is unimportant or too simple. We know when we call, we are going to get quick, responsive and reliable service. It is also great to know someone is looking out for your premium dollars. We know the Gulbransen Agency has really gone out of their way to save us money.
Jon Keith Wheaton Academy
One of our most difficult challenges in moving to Illinois was finding new insurance. We had the same medical insurance plan for 24 years, but they didn’t operate outside of California. People who had known Ned most of his life spoke of his character and suggested we talk to him. Ned was there to help us work through the headache inducing dilemma of choosing from the myriad of medical insurance options. He took the confusing and made it understandable.
He not only found us auto coverage, but when our daughters reached driving age, he offered to have a sit down talk talk with them about driving safety, what to do in an accident, even making himself available if they find themselves in an accident. That’s personal care. I’ve never worked with an agency that is as friendly and helpful.
I’ve know Ned for 11 years now. Both he and his staff’s personal care and service are the reason they have our business.
Ray Gurunian, Pastor Village Bible Church
I have known Ned since 1973 and our days together as student/athletes at Wheaton College. The level of trust that has been built up over those 35 years is unique, especially in today’s world. When it was time to place my insurance needs and ultimately the security of my family in someone’s hands, there was no doubt where I turned. Ned Gulbransen is committed. He is loyal. He is a man of great integrity. He has a heart for people. People matter to him. Over the many years that Ned has handled my insurance needs, never once have I received anything less than his very best. Never once have I felt like a number or burden to him. At that moment of need, I was important to him and he responded in a personal way. It was not just a job or task to be completed. Ned is a throwback to the ways things used to be. His handshake is good. His heart and motives are pure. He seeks to serve and not to rule. He is a winner.

Mr. Ned Gulbransen; I have been a customer of yours since around May of 2005. On various occasions I have had the need to contact your office for questions about my auto insurance, once for a fire in my pickup truck! I usually speak with Sue or yourself. I had never had such an enjoyable and successful relationship with an insurance company before. All of my questions are answered in a prompt and efficient manner and to my satisfaction. The fire in my truck…I called got service, no hassles, truck got fixed in a timely matter, all done very professionally, many, many thanks to you and your staff for the A1 service and you save me money also. My deepest thanks, David Osterkamp, proud owner of 3 vehicles insured through the Gulbransen Agency

I’ve been a client of Ned Gulbransen for years. He gives clear, common sense advice and outstanding service. Others may quote low prices but nobody has been able to match his service and trustworthy counsel.
Bob Kay Attorney Peregrine Stime Newman Ritzman & Bruckner LTD
Responsive and caring are the two main words that describe the Ned Gulbransen Agency. Ned and his team have always been helpful and available to answer questions and offer advice. When a claim had to be made on our house, the process was seamless and required little of our attention and time. Last year Ned and his team helped guide us throught the process of how to work with a different insurance carrier when our car was hit by another vehicle.
Ned does not rely on high pressure sales. He developes and maintains relationships with his customers. I have not hesitated to refer my friends to the Ned Gulbransen Agency.
I wanted to take a moment to extend my deep appreciation for the good work and “above all expectations” service that you and your staff provided to our family during our crisis last year.
Too often good deeds and good service go unmentioned. Last year when our house received extensive storm damage, and thoughts turned to facing the difficulties ahead in dealing with insurance claims and contractor’s. You and your staff grabbed the reins and guided the process through to a complete and timely conclusion without a hitch. Within short order our house was back in order and our lives back on track.
Ned, Thanks again to you and your staff for you quick response, due diligence and solid representation, We now understand and fully appreciate the value of your service.
Steve Treudt V.P. West Chicago Printing Company
People don’t often write letters anymore, but I thought that I should show you my appreciation for your staff’s efforts and concern.
After my car was side-swiped, I was surprised at how quickly you guys called and took care of everything. As you know, I was with another agent for about 10 years and they didn’t really help me very much the one time I needed it. I was convinced I was dealing the a robot from their corporate HQ. I had to do all of the work.
It really is refreshing to have the President of a company call to ask if you are OK. Please thank your staff for me. They made it easy.
Thanks again for your concern and speedy response.
John Werle American Fidelity Mortgage Services
We came to Gulbransen Agency when Ned’s dad, Hank was in charge and the office was still in Clarendon Hills – about 25 years ago! Since then, a lot has changed in our lives, and Gulbransen Agency has always been there to guide us. When we started our own business about 4 years ago we called Ned to see if he carried the kind of insurance we need. Sure enough, general business, professional liability and even health insurance were available. Ned and Gina’s knowledge of their products and what might be the best for our circumstances was invaluable.
Recently, Sue let us know that she thought our Auto policy renewal was too high; so she did some checking and found us the same policy coverage under a different carrier for a savings of $1,300 per year!
Yes, you may be able to find slightly lower rates through and online discount house – but nothing can compare to the knowledge, experience and customer service you get with Gulbransen Agency.
I want to thank you again for the fast and professional service which you have consistently provided in responding to my insurance questions. In connection with my practice as an attorney, both in the fields of estate planning and business, insurance questions come up and I always know that I can go to you for reliable and helpful answers. This helps me service my clients better as I can help educate them on the value of insurance in their financial planning and the importance of having an adviser such as you on the team, along with the attorney, accountant, financial planner, and others.
I look forward to continuing opportunities to work with you and your staff. I would unhesitatingly recommend you for personal and business insurance needs.
Elizabeth A. Hambrick-Stowe Stowe Attorney Lillig & Thorsness LTD
For over a decade, we have had our insurance through Ned. Several things stand out about Ned’s agency. First, we have found Ned to be honest. His advice has been sound and he has never tried to sell us coverage we do not need. Second, they have always been prompt in responding to claims or questions. Finally, Ned has always worked to find the best coverage at the best rates. In short, in our experience Ned has provided great service and we recommend his agency.
Gregg and Mary Quiggle
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service you and your staff have provided to me. I originally switched my personal insurance to your company at a considerable savings. I then switched my business insurance and also saw a savings. I have since recommended you to family and friends and all have had the same experience. It’s a pleasure doing business with a company that I know is working for me.
