2023 Elwood Chamber of Commerce Business of the year Award Recipient!!!

February is the month of love ❤ with Valentine's Day right around the corner. Make sure that your loved ones are protected with State Farm Life Insurance.

Hey there, welcome to State Farm with Matt, the insurance guru of Elwood, Indiana! This guy has been rocking the insurance scene since 2015, and he's all about hooking you up with the greatest coverage and service imaginable.

Listen up, because at Matt's office, we've got all the insurance options you could ever dream of. Whether you're after car insurance, homeowners insurance, business insurance, renters insurance, boat insurance, RV and motorcycle insurance, health insurance, or life insurance (yes, even the fancy whole and term life stuff), we've got your back. Seriously, we've got a super team of insurance professionals with a combined experience of over 60 years in the Elwood area. That's like having an army of insurance ninjas protecting you from all angles.

But wait, there's more! Matt isn't just about slinging insurance policies. This dude is deeply committed to his community. He's involved in more local organizations than you can shake a stick at. We're talking Elwood Kiwanis, Elwood Chamber of Commerce, Northern Madison County Drug Coalition, Elwood C.A.R.E.S. Group, and the Elwood Elks. Matt is all about giving back, so he sponsors a bunch of awesome community events throughout the year. Think Concerts in the Park, Free Day at the Elwood Pool, and Taste of Elwood. And don't even get us started on the parades, cookoffs, and holiday festivities. Matt and his team are always right in the thick of it, spreading joy and insurance wisdom.

When he's not in insurance superhero mode, Matt loves to kick it on the soccer field with Noblesville United Soccer. He's also a die-hard fan of Duke University Basketball. And hey, the guy knows how to have a good time. He's into traveling, catching flicks at the movies, rocking out at concerts, and most importantly, embarrassing his teenage daughter at every turn. Classic dad moves, you know?

Speaking of family, Matt and his lovely wife Lynn have been married for a solid 24 years. They've got two awesome kids in the mix. Keaton, their son, tore it up at ISU and last year started a career in logistics working out of PA. And Maty, their cheerleading superstar daughter, is about to enter Bellarmine University in KY and be the first D1 athlete in the family! Oh, and how could we forget about Ruby, the adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel? She might just grace you with her presence if you swing by the office. It's like having a furry mascot!

So, if you're in need of a free insurance quote or you simply want to shoot the breeze with some insurance wizards, give us a call, shoot us a text, drop us an email, or swing by our office. Matt and his dream team are here to handle all your insurance and financial service needs. When it comes to reliable coverage and top-notch service in Elwood, it's State Farm with Matt all the way, baby!
