OUR INSURANCE PARTNERS
Best Insurance Consultants, LTD formerly known as Best Realty was founded in 1952 by Steve & Beatrice Huska. The agency operated out of a small office on the Northwest of Chicago. As the real estate business grew, they discovered more and more first-time clients needing assistance with their insurance questions.
This inspired Steve Huska to add insurance products to the agency to help make home buying easier. As time went by, because of their consultative approach to assisting with insurance, it was no surprise that the insurance side of the business grew rapidly. Clients began to rely on the Huska’s when they had questions and Steve and Bernie were always available to help. That culture of providing assistance in a client first, friendly family environment was true then and still reigns true today.
Best Insurance Consultants today is a full-service agency providing insurance for home, health, life, auto, & business.
Our clients range from individuals to small businesses. As an independent agent, we recognize the importance of prompt and personal service in dealing with our clients. Customer satisfaction is our primary aim. You can turn to Best Insurance knowing your best interest comes first.

As a young man I spent my summers helping my dad around the office so I could earn my allowance. At that time, the office was located right next door to a hobby shop. Every week I would take my allowance and head next door to buy stuff for my train set. Model railroading is a passion I had then and still have today.
I went to DePaul University where I received a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing. After graduation, I came to work full-time at Best Insurance. I continued my education by completing the insurance classes and becoming licensed.
When asked what I love about my job, my answer is the one on one relationships I have with my clients. That and the fact that I don’t have to wear a tie to work! When I’m not at the office, I like to spend my time playing hockey, traveling with my wife and being with family and friends.
I grew up in the small town of Goshen, IN. and then attended Ball State University. While in college I was introduced to my husband, Fred, on a blind date. Once we married, we moved to Warrenville, IL. I began my insurance career with 22 years at American States/SAFECO before hanging up the corporate hat and coming to Best Insurance in 2003. I enjoy the casual working atmosphere, interacting with clients but most of all the family feeling here at Best.
My family includes my husband and three children. My son is a Full time Fireman/Paramedic, my older daughter is an High School English teacher, and my youngest daughter is a 1st grade teacher.
When I’m not in the office you will find me spending time with family and friends, camping, boating and barbecuing. Fred and I belong to a cooking club. The joke is…. I don’t cook – but thankfully Fred is a master!
