About Me

Rating 5.0

As a resident of Indiana for over a decade, I am proud to serve my neighbors here in Merrillville and all across the state as your local Farmers® Agent. My approach to insurance is based all around protecting the community I love. My goal is to utilize my 14 years of industry experience to simply and clearly lay out all of your options for auto, home, life, business insurance and more.

At The Buikema Insurance Agency, you can expect the finest attention to detail. We are fully aware of how complicated finding insurance that works for you can be, which is why you can count on 1 on 1 consultation to thoroughly and completely assess your needs. We want to give you the peace of mind that you're protected when it matters most. If you're looking for a new policy, or simply a review of your current coverages, don't hesitate to reach out and we can get to work together.

Give me a call at (219) 940-9624 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
