In May 1976, Dick Kent founded the Kent Insurance Agency.


The agency was first located in Deer Park on Plainfield Road on the 2nd floor of the Polasky Medical Building. Dick shared a 600 sq. ft. office with his good friend Bob Schuler, who was a coin jeweler. In 1985, with the business growing, more space was needed and a new location was sought.


Conveniently around the corner from his home, Dick located a house on Montgomery Road that was zoned office. The property was purchased and the agency moved into their current location on January 1st, 1986.


The agency specializes in personal lines and small commercial coverages. While the main focus of their business is located in the tri-state area, the agency is licensed throughout the midwest.
