The Chicago Insurance Collective was formed by three independent insurance agents (Randy Boyd, Simon Burke, and Peter Bohr) that we’re looking to collectively leverage their professional careers, experiences, and resources to provide customers a better experience buying insurance.  The mission of the Chicago Insurance Collective is to build long standing relationships with our clients, put the clients first by educating them on the various insurance companies and coverages, and we promise to find you the best insurance coverage at the lowest price!

It’s important that we distinguish the difference between Captive Insurance agents and Independent Insurance agents.

Captive Insurance agents represent and write policies for just one insurance company (State Farm, Farmers, Allstate, etc).  Captive agents can only give you options that their company offers.  This means the agent is only concerned with the interests of the insurance company that they represent, and they would never direct a customer to another company, even if that company would be a better fit for the customer.

Independent insurance agents are not held captive to any single insurance company. This means they can write insurance policies with many different, completely unrelated, insurers and they can compare the rates and the policy types of many different insurance companies. This freedom gives independent agents the ability to offer a much wider selection of insurance options than a captive agent.

As Independent Insurance agents, The Chicago Insurance Collective promises to:

  • Put our clients’ interests first. Having 50+ insurance companies allows us to focus on what’s best for our clients not what’s best for a particular insurance company.
  • Provide quotes from more than one company and do the “shopping” for our customers. This gives us the opportunity to educate our clients on the different types of insurance companies, policy types, coverage options and then we can advise you on what we believe is appropriate for you. Ultimately, the buying decision is yours and we want to help steer you in the best direction.
  • Individually tailor an insurance solution to you/your family. We do not provide cookie cutter insurance quotes like a captive agency.


The Chicago Insurance Collective would love the opportunity to speak with you, your family, or your business about your insurance needs. We are a full service agency that can write: home, auto, renters, motorcycle, ATV, boat, business, life, health, Medicare supplements, accident plans, annuities, and much more… Call one of our agents today!!
