  • About

    In 1947, John Pfaff opened John Pfaff & Co in downtown Independence. John had a reputation for his commitment and amazing personal service that he gave his clients and friends. As the agency grew, he took a partner: Thomas Karren. In the mid-1970’s, John’s son Tom joined the agency. John would retire in 1978, and Tom Pfaff and Tom Karren formed the newly named Pfaff-Karren Insurance. The agency moved into the brand new Central Plaza in 1980, where it’s still located today. Tom and his family are legendary supporters of both our community and Central High School sports. After 40 years in the insurance agency, Tom Pfaff decided to start his retirement process and sold the agency to Karen Frascone and Kristin Thomas.
    We pride ourselves on having many 3rd and 4th generation clients, which speaks volumes to the continued commitment and personal service John Pfaff believed in.

    We encourage you to stop in and say hello. As always the coffee is on and our door is open.
