With offices in Pekin and Washington, Illinois, our team is ready to provide residential and commercial customers with a Personal Price Plan! As part of National Life Insurance Awareness Month, let's discuss how life insurance can provide financial stability to better protect you and your family. Contact us to set-up a life insurance consultation.

About Me: Before beginning my career with State Farm in 2005, I grew up in Gardner, Illinois with two sisters and three brothers. I graduated from Gardner South Wilmington High School, and later received my undergraduate degree from Illinois Wesleyan University majoring in Risk Management. After receiving my undergrad, I met my wife, Leslie, who also is employed with State Farm, and we now have two wild and crazy children together – one boy and one girl.

My State Farm Journey: I started my career at State Farm in 2005, and I wore many hats at first. I was originally involved with State Farm in a corporate role that focused on financial services and marketing, and as I became more invested, I realized that I wanted to become a State Farm Insurance Agent, and in 2013 I launched my first office in Pekin, Illinois.

The journey as an agent has been an amazing ride. I’ve met so many amazing people in the Pekin community – residents, business owners, and team members – and I’m excited to share that we now have a second location in Washington, Illinois! Having a second location allows my team and me to provide excellent customer service in a more personalized fashion for more Illinois residents and business owners.

Hobbies & Interests: I love all sports, especially our Chicago sports teams, and I played football in my younger years. Much like running a business, football is a sport that requires chemistry from people with different skill sets. For example, an offensive lineman wouldn’t play quarterback, and a quarterback probably isn’t the team’s first option to play offensive line, but by putting the individuals in a position that appropriately suits them, the team is set up for success! This idea is how I run my agency.

I also love to travel and explore new restaurants. I’ve traveled to all sorts of places around the country, in the world, and I’m always open to exploring new places. I’m always up for recommendations in this space, so don’t be shy to share where I need to try next. Especially, with a new office opening in Washington, I’ll need some good recommendations to grab some breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Community Involvement: Community involvement is an important reason why being a State Farm Insurance Agent was a great career fit for me. I am a Board Member of the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce, former President of the Kiwanis Club of Pekin, and I am also a member of the Pekin Main Street. We also are a proud sponsor, or have sponsored, the Pekin Miss Marigold Pageant, various Youth Sports Leagues in Pekin and Bloomington, Boys and Girls Club Teams, Mission Sports Club, Pekin High School Athletics, the Agriculture Club at Pekin High School, and more.

Stop by or call our Pekin or Washington offices if you are looking for a sponsor for your next event. I’m more than happy to help if we have the availability to do so!

The Dan Pfeifer Difference: Our team available 24/7 and is licensed to positively impact any residential customers and business owners in Illinois, Missouri, and Indiana through guidance, knowledge, and professional assistance. With access to a wide variety of insurance products and financial services, we help our customers get set up for financial success and protect what matters most to them if mayhem presents itself. By having a one-on-one consultation with our team, we will help walk through your life goals and develop a Personal Price Plan that is appropriate for you!

If necessary, we have an in-office notary, and services are always available for our customers.

Award-Winning Team: Thanks to the support of our community, our team has some hardware to show for it. We were recently voted as the Agent of Choice in Central Illinois, and we have been voted Tazewell County Readers Choice - Favorite Insurance Agent multiple years in a row. Internally, our team has been awarded State Farm Honor Club, Ambassador Club, Chairmans Circle, and State Farm Top 100 New Agent.

Much like my football analogy mentioned above, it takes a team with different skill sets to make this sort of success happen, and I couldn’t be more thankful for them embracing their roles in ensuring that our customers are appropriately cared for.

Drive Safe & Save: This program is available to all customers with a State Farm Auto Insurance policy. Be sure to contact our team to enroll in this program, or text SAVE to 42407 to download the app and sign up today!
