Sam Karkela: Allstate Insurance

Local Allstate Agent: Meet Sam Karkela

Grand Rapids is my hometown. I grew up on the north edge of town before moving away when I was 11-years old. I always kept ties with the area, and I couldn't have been more excited to return home to open a business as an Allstate Agent.

Outside of my Agency work I was thrilled to become part of the Grand Rapids Fire Department as a volunteer Fire Fighter. Public service is important to me and I look for opportunities to give back to the community I care about.

My agency offers 24-hour customer support, utilizing the latest technology that makes filing a claim simple and easy when you need it most. I offer four main lines of Insurance through Allstate: Home, Auto, Business and Life. Stop in for cup of coffee or give me a call and see the value my office can bring to you today!
