Independent Insurance Agent in Forest Park, IL

About us

Welcome to a better insurance experience!

Forest Insurance is a full-service, family-owned independent insurance agency serving the communities of Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, and greater Chicagoland since 1957 with a vast array of high-quality auto, home, commercial, business, and life insurance products. And while we've evolved over the years, we've never lost our personal touch or our commitment to quality. We take great pride in providing superior coverage that delivers better value and greater peace of mind-and boast a staff of fully-accredited advisors with more professional insurance designations that any other local agency.

Because we value quality, we work with only A-rated (preferred) insurance companies such as Chubb, Hanover, Hartford, MetLife Auto & Home, Nationwide Private Client, Progressive, Safeco, Travelers, and more. From local agencies to major Illinois companies, no one can match the array of coverages, company access, expertise, service, higher limits, higher payouts per claim, or value that we offer.

Contact us today for quote. We will gladly review your current policy, provide a side-by-side analysis of what you have vs. what is available, and guide you through recommended coverages and limits.

Our agent Cristine Trevino-Saucedo Has been incredibly helpful over the years helping us figure out affordable auto insurance options as we add teenagers to our policies. She's been patient and answered so many questions and always been happy to do so."

I appreciate Nicole's professionalism, quick response time, knowledge of the subject matter, flexibility to offer multiple options and her understanding of our short and long term goals when offering different insurance options for our family.

April 29, 2020

I contacted Nichole on a Monday and we had everything set up by Wed. It was a thorough presentation and very well priced. I wish we had contacted Forest earlier.

April 29, 2020

The folks at Forest Insurance provide personalized services and treat you like their best customer, and I appreciate doing business with companies that appreciate my business.

April 29, 2020

What an absolutely amazing agency! I always have lots of questions; Christine Trevino-Saucedo and her team get back to me so quickly every single time! Shop around for sure, but start here first! You won't be disappointed!

April 29, 2020

Nichole was very helpful getting us quotes for our auto and homeowners insurance. We were able compare premiums with our previous company and save money by switching with even better coverage. Very friendly and easy to get a hold of!

April 29, 2020

Forest Agency is a wonderful local company who can tailor your insurance to your exact needs. They are all very helpful and friendly. I do my auto and home with them. It's wonderful speaking with a person and having them manage all the details for me!

April 29, 2020

We have been a client for more than 30 years. We have had claims, but this time around your firm was exceptional. Maryann took charge and was able to coordinate the multiple tasks necessary to complete a fairly extensive (claim).

April 29, 2020

I recently got some very professional service from these folks, as they handled my request with speed and attention-to-detail, matching up my very unique situation with just the right coverage plan. I was impressed. Very different than filling out an anonymous online application with the mega-carriers. Recommend!"

April 29, 2020

I buy my insurance from an independent agent for the same reason I don't get mail order prescriptions. I like knowing the insurance professionals at the Forest Agency have my back.
