What's the best way to shop for home insurance in Illinois?

I'm buying my first home in Illinois and need home insurance. What's the best way to shop for home insurance or the best place to look?

“You should definitely contact an independent agent to get some quotes.
If you want a quick approach, you could go to Jerry. A licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the free Jerry app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, and even cancels your old policy for you.
You may also want to look at companies you’ve worked with before to help you find the best rates and go with someone you trust. If you already have a car insurance policy with a company, you could ask about bundling, as this can save you even more money.
You can also talk to your real estate agent. It’s highly likely that they have insurance companies they refer their clients to. You already trust your agent, so working with someone they trust is a win-win.”
