Gary Longstein
Agency Owner

I’ve lived in the Chicagoland area for over thirty years and have been a resident of Oak Park since 2006. During our time here, both my family and I have come to fully appreciate the community and the people we serve. We all work hard to deliver coverage that can stand the test of time and live up to the“Good Hands Promise” this community deserves.

As an insurance agent, the best part of my job is the day to day interaction with our customers and the people I work with. We realize that insurance can be hard for people to navigate on their own, so we make it easy by seeking to understand your unique needs first before helping you choose the right coverages. As you experience important life changes, my team and I will be there to help you adjust your coverage to fit your life.

Originally, I’m from Southern California. That’s where I grew up and graduated from the University of California at Long Beach.  When I’m not at work, I spend most of my free time with my wife at home.  We often travel to neighboring states to enjoy Lake Michigan. In the summer, I love to go sailing.
