I started out in the insurance business in 2007 as a producer with Allstate insurance. In 2008 I opened the Van Curler Independent Insurance Agency. I liked the idea of having more than one company to quote insurance with. My goal is to try and save people as much money as possible while making sure they understand all the coverages that their policy covers.
I currently live in Prior Lake with my wife. We had our first child, a son named Max, in September of 2015. I’m also a volunteer fire fighter with the city of Prior Lake. In my spare time I like to play golf and spend time with my family.
I live in Prior Lake with my wife of 42 years, Barb. We have four children and nine grandchildren. Family is very important to me. A perfect day is one where I can spend it with my kids and grandkids. My oldest son, Chad, is an insurance agent in Maple Grove and my youngest son, Ryan, and I work together in Prior Lake. On weekends my wife and I like to spend time with friends riding motorcycles on the back roads of Minnesota. We also enjoy volunteering at our church, Hosanna, in Shakopee.
I have over 25 years of experience as an insurance agent. I was a captive agent with Allstate for 14 years. As a captive agent, I was only able to offer one company. Now as an independent insurance agent with Van Curler Insurance, I can offer 11 different insurance companies. This gives the people I insure multiple options to best fit their needs.
