Local Allstate Agent: Meet Garfield Phillpotts

I have called greater Chicagoland home since 1989 and specifically the Oak Park/River Forest area since 1997. I believe the Oak Park/River Forest is the best area to live and raise a family in Chicagoland. It has the best of both worlds of urban and suburban life where we have diversity of housing, businesses & people within our shared community. There are outstanding schools, restaurants and parks conveniently accessible to Downtown Chicago via two CTA L-lines, the Metra and via a short 10 mile drive. What an outstanding community to live and operate my Allstate Agency - GP Insurance Solutions LLC!

I’m so thankful for the support of my community for my family and business, which is why I love giving back. GP Insurance Solutions LLC supports the Gymnastics Team at Oak Park Gymnastics Center, The River Forest Youth Soccer League, the High School Sports Programs and Opportunity Knocks. Additionally my agency and I personally volunteer and support various non-profits through Allstate’s Helping Hands Grants.

Helping people is a big reason why I love insurance. I get to help people protect what is most important in their lives including their Home, Auto, College Savings Fund, and Retirement Savings and most importantly securing their Family’s Future with Life Insurance. It is incredibly rewarding to be an Allstate Agent. I am honored by customers of whom many are my neighbors and have the confidence in GP Insurance Solutions LLC (my agency) to help protect them. Please call or stop by my office in River Forest at 7577 Lake Street.

Allstate Foundation Grant for Options for Youth

Living in Chicagoland, I understand the opportunities and challenges facing people in our area and truly want to make a difference. This is why I’m proud to have helped secure an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant for Options for Youth. I support their efforts to mentor teenage mothers, and this grant will go a long way towards helping young people in and around our hometown. Giving back to my local community gives me a sense of purpose, and I’m honored to support Options for Youth’s good work.
