Local Allstate Agent: Meet Eric Ekblade

I was born and raised in the Durham/Middlefield CT area, which is about 30 minutes from my Derby, CT office and about 15 minutes from my Rocky Hill office. I graduated from High School in 1998 from Coginchaug Regional High School in Durham, CT. I graduated from the University of Connecticut Business School in 2002. After college I started my career out in Mortgages in 2002. I then moved to Finance and Insurance in a car dealership from 2003 through 2012 prior to starting to represent Allstate. I purchased both of my existing agencies from long time agents getting out of the business. I purchased Derby, CT in 2012 and my Rocky Hill agency in 2016. Both agencies had long term relationships with great Allstate customers that I was excited to expand on and grow with.

Being an Allstate Agent runs in the family. My cousin in Michigan is a 20-year Allstate agent who got me into this roll. He has been my mentor since and has really helped me to create an amazing business. I love being able to make a living by both helping customers and bringing new staff onboard that may take the same path I did some day to become entrepreneur or agency managers with me.

From our Senior Sales members to our newest receptionist, everyone in my agency has a specialty. Mae, our senior customer service rep in Derby has been with this agency since 1991. Kathy, our office manager, has been with the agency since 1998 and is bi-lingual so she has a great relationship with our Polish community. Whether you need Condo, Home, Auto, or Business Insurance We would love to help you out with your insurance.

Our Derby, CT location is conveniently located on Route 34, which is a main artery connecting to the Valley via Route 8, Route 15 and into New Haven, CT. We are two doors down from Krausers.

Our Rocky Hill location is located right next to the CVS on the corner of Route 3 and New Britain Ave. We’re around the back of the building, across from West Hill School. (Can’t miss the Allstate beacon sign in our window).

When I am not at the office I enjoy spending time with my wife Lindsey and my two daughters Ava and Leah. I also enjoy playing golf, watching my alma mater, the Uconn Huskies (University of Connecticut), and watching my daughters perform in the arts or softball and soccer for our town teams.

Please stop by our office in Derby on New Haven Avenue or call us at (203) 951-3452.
