Meet The Women Behind The Woman At Char Schulz State Farm Insurance


Darla Smith, Niki Guilford and Char Schulz at their office at 22206 7th Ave. South in Des Moines.

It has been said “behind every great man, there’s a great woman.” Well, in the case of of Char Schulz of Char Schulz’s State Farm Insurance in Des Moines, behind this great woman there’s two great women!

Our readers all know that Char’s been in Des Moines as a State Farm insurance agent for 31 years. You also know that she’s very active in The Rotary Club of Des Moines, and is on the boards of the Legacy Foundation, the Des Moines Farmers Market and Pierce County Master Gardner’s Foundation. She believes in giving back, and back and back some more!

What you don’t know, unless you’re a customer, is about her two sidekicks at the office. There’s Niki Guilford who’s been with Char for nearly two years and Darla Smith who just started last December.

Niki is a State Farm Licensed Insurance Representative with seven years experience with State Farm. Niki has an 11 year old daughter who plays basketball, soccer and has just started studying dance…jazz and tap.

“The passion in what I do is meeting clients needs and expectations,” Niki told The Waterland blog. “I love working with Char—she is very supportive, and always giving and a great advisor. She keeps me laughing often her witty personality.”

The new girl on the block is Darla. She may not look it, but Darla has two grown sons and has two brand new grandkids. She’s got one son still at home. In addition to being a high school student, he’s an avid drag racer. He even has his own dragster. He came by this sport honestly–his dad and grandpa are also drag racers. Weekends are spent with the family at Northwest Drag Racing events.

Darla was a stay at home mom for 16 years. Then over eight years ago she became a State Farm Licensed Insurance Representative. “I love my job, as I get to help people.” She assures our readers that “it’s nice working for a company that when you call Char’s office, there’s a live person on the other end of the phone to talk to when you have problems!”

Formerly working in South King County, Darla “loves the small town feeling of Des Moines.” Wait till she sees the village in summer!

You can find Char, Niki and Darla Monday-Friday from 9-5 (weekends or after hours by appointment) at 22206 7th Ave. South in Des Moines, at 206-878-2520 or at [email protected] or on the web: www.charleenschulz.com.
