About Handzel & Associates
Handzel & Associates Ltd. was established in 1989 and only one agent originally operated it.
One year later, after the mandatory automobile insurance law took affect in Illinois, Handzel & Associates Ltd. started to grow rapidly and quickly established itself as one of the biggest insurance agencies in Chicago. Soon, Handzel & Associates Ltd. was able to offer a full spectrum of insurance products. Our agency started to expand rapidly and opened several new locations: in 1992 on the south side of Chicago, followed by Niles, Chicago’s northwest suburb, in 1995, and Wood Dale, Chicago’s western suburb, in September of 2004.
In October of 2006 Handzel & Associates Ltd. opened its office located at 4429a N. Harlem Ave. in Norridge. In June of 2008 Handzel & Associates Ltd. opened its newest office, located at 6226 W. Cermak Rd. in Berwyn. At the beginning our agency specialized mainly in individual automobile insurance policies underwritten by local insurance companies.
In 1996 Handzel & Associates Ltd. signed a contract to represent one of the biggest insurance companies in the USA – CNA Insurance Company. This allowed us to compete on a wide range of insurance markets.
