Agent Profile
Sycamore Agent

“Do What Is Best for the Client.”

I have been serving Medicare eligible individuals and their health insurance needs since 2010. My business philosophy has consistently been “Do What Is Best for the Client.” Honesty is what you will recognize when you work with me.

My years in the business have provided me with an understanding of the Medicare market and the related insurance needs of seniors. Currently, I am on Medicare. Consequently, I have experience in the industry from both the professional and personal perspectives. While I know a lot, I don’t pretend to know everything. When a client asks a question for which I don’t know the answer, I will do the research, find the answer, and get back to the client.

My time is free! I receive commissions directly from the carriers that I represent. There is no difference in the premiums you pay whether you enroll directly with a company or through me. By choosing to work with me, you get services that you would never receive from a company or company agent!

I don’t believe in high pressure sales techniques. I will never sit at your kitchen table and push to get you to sign on the dotted line. I will always live up to my business philosophy. That’s a promise!

Judy, formerly from Marengo, Illinois. Just wanted to leave a few thoughts about John. John has been incredibly devoted, as he searches out and has provided us with a perfect medicare supplement. We have always been eager to recommend John’s services, to our family and our friends. We trust John and he is more than an agent, he’s a friend. Thanks, John.

This is Frank, and I am also speaking for Janet, we live in Addison, Illinois. We signed up for social security, but after that we didn’t know what to do. So, we got a mailing from John, in the mail. And it was the best representation of all the mailings we received for supplemental insurance. So, we went with him because you don’t know what you don’t know. He did a good job, he got us a good deal. And thanks for your efforts John!

I recommend John Knepper, he is a great insurance agent. When I turned 65, I was quite overwhelmed when I started getting information about signing up for Medicare. And then all the insurance agencies started bombarding me with their plans and their costs. Needless to say I was quite overwhelmed. My bother Jack recommended John, as he has been using him for his agent for quite a few years. And I called John and he walked me through all the steps that I needed, recommended the best plan that he thought was best for me. I couldn’t be happier. So if you are looking for a good agent that will tell you how it is and help you pick out what exactly you need, I recommend calling John Knepper. Thank you
