The VanDyke Group

Our name. Our promise.

Our goal is to take the confusion out of insurance. At The VanDyke Group, we promise to walk you through all your insurance needs and find options that work best for you, your family, and your business.


Our founder, Richard VanDyke, started The VanDyke Group in 1984 and we have grown in clients and staff. Richard’s son, Matthew, joined the business in 1997 and today, Matt provides vision and stability for the company.


After 30 years as an independent insurance broker, we’ve developed an approach to insurance that includes you as part of our family. We will guide you through the quoting and renewal process while educating you on the marketplace. 


As we continue to grow, we look for employees that we can train in our standards of care and service. They are well-educated, detail-oriented, and compassionate people that we are proud to call part of our family. We understand that you will need us at difficult times, and our staff is here to reassure you and be your advocate.


Our personal attention, cutting-edge technology, and marketplace knowledge makes us the perfect choice for handling your insurance.
