Mike Toft


Mike Toft has joined Pickard Insurance Services and is licensed in Property & Casualty.

Mike has a passion for helping people be the best possible version of themselves whether it is regarding health, spiritual growth, wisdom for living, and now in the area of caring for your family and protecting what you own via property and casualty insurance.

Mike and his family have enjoyed living in the Brookings area since 2009.   He is a Minnesota boy turned South Dakotan.  He loves the entrepreneur spirit and welcoming vibe of Brookings and the surrounding communities.  Developing relationships with business owners and community builders has been a delight and a priority wherever he has lived.  He feels these relationships have been rewarding and an integral part of his successes.

“I am well aware how life can change in a matter of weeks, and the chaos that can follow.  Having been a pastor for 22 years prior to this, I have a heart for helping people prepare for and survive life’s challenges.  I am known to often say, ‘Proper preparation prevents poor performance.’  This applies to insurance, too!  I believe we should plan for the unexpected, while enjoying the present for the gift that it is.  I want people to enjoy life, knowing that the people and things that are important to them have been properly cared for.”

Mike and his wife, Heidi, and their 3 teens love to be outside – to swim, camp, fish, hunt, shoot, hike, ride bikes, and explore!  They are all voracious readers.  They value faith, friendships and family above all other things. Mike and Heidi spend much of their time researching and educating as many people as they can about living well.   He looks forward to working with you and for you!
