Curt Unruh -CIC, LUTCF
Owner
I started with Unruh Insurance in 1982 part-time with my father Bob Unruh while also working full-time at Conestoga Wood Specialties. I started full-time with the agency in February 1986. I have focused my time on sales, including both business and personal lines of insurance, as well as life insurance. We have won numerous prestigious awards from Erie Insurance for our sales and profitability.
In my spare time, I am active in our church, which includes being a youth leader alongside my wife Joan. We have done various mission trips, with destinations that have included Puerto Rico and Guatemala. I also enjoy spending time on the Indian River Bay in Delaware, where we go boating, fishing, clamming, and crabbing with family and friends.
On a Mission
Kent Unruh - CIC
Owner
Growing up with a father who owned an insurance agency, insurance was pretty much a part of our lives as long as I can remember. As time came for me to choose a career path, I wasn’t positive that insurance was my goal, but here I am, 37 years later...I have to say it worked out pretty well. Curt and I have been able to grow the agency to a size far larger than our father could have ever imagined back in 1977. But growing the agency isn’t our entire focus. What has been more rewarding is the impact we’ve had on the lives of our clients, employees, and the communities we live and work in. One of the main focuses we have at Unruh Insurance is to be a positive influence on those around us and to give back to the community, which has been the most rewarding part of my career.
When I’m not doing insurance, you can find me playing pickleball, my latest obsession. My wife and I are also looking forward to new adventures as we vacation and explore the Chesapeake bay in the coming years. One fun fact about me is that I play the tuba and have for the past 45 years!

Favorite Quotes
Tim Berlin - CLTC
Life & Health Sales Agent
My enlistment in the U.S. Coast Guard many, many years ago started the chain of events that led me to where I am today as a life and health insurance agent. It went something this: I enlisted in the Coast Guard after high school and was trained to be a Hospital Corpsman; with that background I used the GI Bill to earn a degree in Healthcare Administration; for 19 years I was employed in various management positions at a couple of hospitals and spent 6 years in medical practice management; while managing a medical practice I met a Prudential Insurance agent who thought I’d do well in financial services, and so I switched careers. And here I am, 23 years later at the Unruh Insurance Agency.
During my time in the Coast Guard I traveled the world and for a year I lived in Turkey beside a small village outside of Istanbul. I know and understand from these experiences that the standard of living we have in the United States is great. I certainly have a great appreciation of this fact.

Kim Wulterkins - CISR
Personal Lines Sales Agent
I started out working for the Adamstown Branch of Denver National Bank. Kent Unruh came to the bank frequently to make deposits. At some point he jokingly asked if I wanted to leave the bank and work for him. After a few years went by, Kent came to my teller window again and I said "I’m ready to come to work for you now". Kent looked like a deer in headlights, but said "Okay, give me some time to figure something out". About a month later I was working for Unruh Insurance Agency and studying for my insurance licenses for home, auto, and life Insurance. After I passed my tests, I began a sales position for the agency and I have been here ever since (more than 25 years).
