Hi! I’m Scott Tilford your local State Farm Insurance Agent proudly serving Traverse City, MI and its surrounding communities since March 2001. April is distracted Driving Awareness month. When is the last time you checked your auto insurance liability coverage if something were to happen to you or your family? We would love to discuss with you the importance of being properly insured. Let State Farm Insurance cover your home and protect you from unexpected madness and game day surprises during March.

I am a Central Michigan University graduate and have spent my entire career in the Risk Management & Financial Services Profession. After starting my career helping businesses and municipalities with their Risk Management needs, I decided I wanted to be able to see the faces and the families of the people I am helping. After researching the top company in the industry, I chose to team up with State Farm. We are here to help protect you and your family from the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and help you to realize and achieve your dreams.

From auto insurance and homeowners' insurance, to life insurance, renters' insurance and more, I'm here to help you protect what you care about most. We insure boats, side by sides, campers, Ebikes, motorcycles and more! Our office is conveniently located for folks living in the Traverse City area, or for anyone relocating to the Grand Traverse region.

I look forward to meeting you!
