Farmers Insurance Agent in Peoria, IL

James Kenneth Maurice
About Me

Rating 5.0

As your local Farmers® agent in Peoria, IL, I help customers like you identify the insurance coverage that best fits your needs. This process is straightforward and personalized to help make you smarter about insurance. I have the knowledge and experience to help you better understand your coverage options--whether that's auto, home, renters, business, life, pet insurance and more.

I am a Peoria native growing up on the west side. I attended Coolidge and Washington grade schools and Spalding High School, graduating in 1984. I continued my schooling at ICC and Bradley for the next 2 years. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA. Go Hawks! I am pursuing my MBA with an online university.

My professional career started in Cedar Rapids, IA in the insurance industry. I became a financial advisor and practice owner in 1991. I continued my career with IDS Financial Services (now dba Ameriprise) for 17 years. My practice grew to 5 employees and we were top 10% nationally ranked for customer service, production and client satisfaction for 8 years. I had the opportunity to sell my practice to a junior broker in 2008. From that time, I held a few different positions in advertising and funeral services.

In 2018, I had the opportunity to join Farmers Insurance Group and take over a practice from an agent who was retiring. I jumped at this chance to be an agency owner and opened my office in the Metro center on August 1, 2018.

I am married with 2 children and 3 grandchildren. My wife, Tami and I live on the west side with our beloved beagle, Sheldon Cooper. I am a high school sports official and work countless football and baseball games in the central Illinois area. My wife and I support live music and unique restaurants in the area as well as volunteer for the Special Olympics. I also enjoy golf, woodworking, and a fine cigar.

Give me a call at (309) 682-9660 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
