Home » About Our Agency

Your family, your business, and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance advisor.


years’ expertise

Where we began.

Agency Owner Diane Harke worked in the industry for over 35 years representing a single insurance company. In 2015, she decided to go independent to make the client experience more personable by offering more options for their ultimate protection. Harke Insurance Agency is a proudly run independent insurance agency that proudly serves individuals, families, and businesses in Downers Grove, IL, Chicagoland, and beyond.

Our independent advantage.

Being available for clients and actively engaged in their life seems to be lost with many of the larger insurance companies; that’s why we do what we do. We believe in providing the highest level of service and compassion for protecting our clients’ needs. Whether you are going through a tough time or just need a policy change, we are happy to make accommodations for clients that need it most—and to us, that is the advantage of using a local, independent agency.


customizable policies

We’re passionate about your protection.

The team at Harke Insurance Agency is committed to serving you; it’s the foundation of our business and one of the most important things we do. We are a woman-owned and operated independent insurance agency that establishes utmost care in every policy we write. By sourcing the most appropriate protection and reducing your risk exposure, we’re able to reach our ultimate goal of giving you peace of mind. Let us get to know you, so we can provide you with a policy that is tailored to you.

Our Mission Statement

At Harke Insurance Agency, our mission is very simple. We strive to provide a true, concierge client experience which is unique in the insurance industry. We give clients the power of choice from top-rated national and regional insurance carriers.
