When worry turns your summer into a bummer, call Justin Vander Iest! The Justin Vander Iest State Farm office is conveniently located at the northwest corner of Wolverine and Belding road in the Wolverine Professional Office building with Stites Eye Care, Williams Orthodontics, and Sylvan Learning Center. We work hard to assist the Rockford, Cedar Springs, Belmont, Grand Rapids, Belding, and other West Michigan areas with their insurance needs.


I moved to the West Michigan area in '98. I attended Hudsonville High School, followed by 4 years at Wabash College in Indiana. The last 14 years I have spent with State Farm and I am in the 9th year of serving the Rockford community. When I am not in the office you will probably find me near or on a baseball field. While the majority of my time is spent coaching 1 of my 4 children, I enjoy going out to the Whitecaps, traveling to various major league stadiums and even stepping on the field myself to play some local men's league.

Give my office a call and one of my knowledgeable staff will quickly find ways to save you some money!
