Local Allstate Agency: Meet Ivkov-Hoops

This is the former John Ivkov agency. We relocated to 17 Mile and Ryan, in the Northwest corner. Maryann is still with the agency.
I’ve gotten to know many local families as an Allstate agent in Sterling Heights. I enjoy being a part of the community, and building local relationships is one of the best parts of my job. I know what life is like here in Sterling Heights – that you choose your car and your home to fit your lifestyle and your budget. I also know how important it is to do the same when it comes to insurance. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you to find the solutions that meet your needs.

Part of what I like best about my job is that I can offer customers options for a wide variety of coverage and services. You can depend on me to help you look at the big picture.

I’m committed to helping Sterling Heights residents assess their immediate and long-term needs and choose options that will help them achieve their goals. When you want to explore options for protecting your home, personal property, or financial future, I’m available to answer your questions. If you’re already a customer, I’m ready to review your coverage so that you can make any necessary adjustments to fit your changing needs. Call me today.
