Our Legacy

SB Insurance & Company can trace our history going back to 1916 with the purchase of E. Pat Stapleton Insurance. From there, in 1988 Phil Brooks established Smith Brown Life Inc. With our roots firmly planted in the Virden, Springfield, and surrounding areas, we have grown from a small agency to a trusted partner in insurance solutions. Our journey has always been fueled by our commitment to securing futures and building lasting relationships.

Community Focus

Being a part of the Virden community means everything to us. We’re not just your brokers; we’re your neighbors. As active participants in local events and initiatives, we aim to give back to the community that has given us so much.

Personalized Approach

Insurance is not a one-size-fits-all industry, and we get that. Our team of experienced and knowledgeable brokers takes the time to understand your needs. Through one-on-one consultations and thorough assessments, we ensure that you receive a policy that fits just right.
