Ben Verbeek

I initially started on the independent side of the insurance world and worked there for 3 years before coming on board last February here at Noffsinger Allstate. I was born and raised right here in Grandville. Went to Calvin Christian High School and then attended GVSU and played basketball for 4 years. I enjoy talking and getting to know each and every customer and helping them find what works best for them and their families. I enjoy watching and coaching my girls. They are both really into softball and I have coached both of them through little league and travel teams over the past 5 years. If I am not at the office, you can find me every day during the week either at a game or practice and every weekend at a travel tournament and I would have it no other way!! I love to run. I have completed 8 marathons. I help organize a 1/2 marathon and 5k here locally that helps many different charities involving kids and, in particular, my kids' Christian school, which means a lot to me.
Steve Wiegerink

I first started working at Allstate for Mark Noffsinger in 2011 as a part-time employee. Since February of 2015, I have been a full-time sales producer and trusted advisor. I grew up in East Grand Rapids, I was fortunate to play for many clubs including 4 years on the H.S. Lacrosse team; I graduated in 2010, I then went on to Central Michigan University as well as Mid-Michigan CC, and am still working towards a BS. What excites me about this job is having meaningful responsibility and the opportunity to construct a professional relationship; to educate and protect the assets of my brothers and sisters. I love sports, enough to call in on radio shows to give input. My hobbies are TV/movies, self-education and the outdoors. On a nice weekend, you'll be sure to catch me boating on the lake, fishing in Ada or grazing on the golf course. But if the weather is lousy, I'll be inside somewhere, at the YMCA, possibly Griff's IceHouse or just chilling at home. Church on Sunday's. One guilty pleasure I have is enjoying refined food and beverage. Others are:watching formidable documentaries and gardening, especially hot peppers! I have made two trips to Trinidad and Tobago doing service work for the underprivileged youth, as well as Chicago and New Orleans. And of course, my hometown G.R.
Andy Miedema

I have been Licensed since December of 2014 and I began working in the industry shortly after. I have been with Allstate since November of 2015. I pride myself on giving great service. I really look forward to saving my client's money while giving them the best coverage. I grew up in Holland Michigan and my wife and I currently live in Hudsonville. By being a trusted advisor, I am happy to give my professional opinion on the best coverages. Saving money is important and having the correct coverage is even more important. I enjoy video games and Netflix. I frequently go rock climbing. The most exciting time for me is summer. Nothing makes me happier than boating with my friends. I spend most of my weekends with family. Board games, card games, and laughing with Friends and Family is a weekend well spent. I enjoy eating odd foods. If you have any recommendations I will likely try it! Kids food basket is where our family volunteers. Preparing school lunches for kids in the Greater Grand Rapids area is what we are passionate about. In an hour or two, our record is 1,000 lunches made!
Linda Cooper

I have been with Allstate since 2007.  I have been licensed since 2003. I started life as a child of a career military man.  I grew up in Northern Michigan. I love to read, all things horses, and ballroom dance. The best part of my job is helping and educating people about the industry so that they can make good decisions about what insurance is best for them. I love all things horsey, dancing, reading, shooting targets, and old muscle cars. Weekends are made for dancing and church.  For getting away with friends and family and catching up on my hobbies. I like to shoot both guns and bows and  I'm not too shoddy at either as long as it is at a target.  My family and I are very active with our church.

I have had the privilege of working with Mark and the Noffsinger Insurance Agency since 2009 and it has been one of the most enriching opportunities I have ever had. I am challenged daily and continue to learn consistently. My goal is to provide exceptional customer service that is second to none and leave a lasting impact on our clients. Our clients and their needs motivate me to continue to deliver sincere, attentive service that has the potential to exceed my client’s expectations and empower them with knowledge. I strive to use my strong work ethic, positive personality, and listening skills to understand and meet the unique needs of each new client. My motivation is to put the customer and their needs first. Personally, I have a pretty varied background from traveling across the country, running my own delivery business, catering, counseling, providing entertainment to colleges and more. I value time with family and friends and enjoy cooking and play cards. I am active in Trinity Lutheran Church, serving as an Elder, Stephen Minister, and more. If I wasn’t working for the greatest boss ever, I would probably be a skydiving instructor or personal caterer.
