Our office places a strong emphasis on customer service, and we are dedicated to providing a top tier experience for our customers. As spring arrives, we are reminded of the importance of vehicle maintenance during National Car Care Month. This month-long celebration, initiated by the Car Care Council in 1980, aims to raise awareness about the significance of regular maintenance in ensuring smooth vehicle operation and road safety.

We are currently hiring, and we invite you to get in touch with our office directly for more details or to send us an email expressing your interest. Over the past dozen years, we have proudly represented State Farm and served our local communities. During this time, we have had the privilege of working with exceptionally talented individuals who have contributed to our mission of providing outstanding service in the industry. Witnessing our staff learn, grow, and succeed has been a tremendous joy for us.

The ongoing pandemic has presented new challenges, but it has also taught us valuable lessons about improving our operations and focusing on what truly matters – relationships and being there for people. To navigate these unprecedented times, we have made adjustments in our office, prioritizing collaboration among our team while minimizing outside interactions whenever possible. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we strive to provide the service you deserve.

Throughout the past year, we have adapted to the changing world by re-purposing office space to accommodate staff members' children and offering additional support for schooling. We have also embraced virtual connections and learned the value of face-to-face interactions. Flexibility has become a cornerstone of our approach, as we understand and accommodate individual circumstances for both our staff and customers. Above all, we have grown in our understanding and compassion for others, recognizing the importance of these qualities in the world today.

When I'm not at work, I cherish the opportunities to enjoy the Pacific Northwest's natural beauty. Whether it's biking, playing tennis and golf, or simply spending quality time with my wife and our four children, these moments bring me immense joy. We are grateful for your support and will continue to work diligently to earn your confidence and referrals from friends and family.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. We look forward to the days ahead, where we can see you in person and serve you more closely.

Bilingual Spanish- Twelve years ago I joined the team at the Ben Brown office. Over the years I have experienced so much personal and professional growth that have prepared me for my current roll as Team Lead. I have been privileged to get to know many of you and your families as we get peeks into the adventures and changes of your life while we help you prepare yourselves and loved ones for whatever life brings. I thoroughly enjoy getting to work with our staff and each one of you as we help you navigate the unexpected risks that life brings. Our focus is to always ensure that you receive the finest in service, to the degree that you want to tell everyone you know about us. Your referring others to us is one of the highest compliments we can receive. Thank you for your business and allowing us to protect what matters most to you.

Bilingual Spanish- You may know me from friendly reminders. In the last six years at Ben Brown office, I have worked with each of you to maintain your policies and discounts, process changes, assist with billing and payment needs, and answer your questions. Much of the work I have done in the past is behind the scenes following up and ensuring that everything processes and issues correctly to help our State Farm customers have as positive and seamless experience possible. I am now excited to take the next steps in my professional development by assisting more with the prospecting and growth of our agency. We love your referrals and confidence in us. I look forward to helping more people, in more ways protect themselves and their families.

Tonya Walmer

Account Representative

I am not Bilingual in Spanish yet...but I am working on it! I too have worked in multiple high functioning State Farm offices and have really enjoyed learning all the ins and outs of the insurance industry. I have spent most of my tenure so far with providing great customer service, however, am thrilled now to be able to extend my personal and professional growth in helping more people through conversations about the coverages they have, more ways to save, and better protections for them and their families. Did I mention that I love talking over life insurance options with folks? I have come to realize that there is so much more we can do to help our customers navigate through the options to protect their loved ones. I welcome a conversation with you to see how we can better protect you.


Rebecca Brown

Office Manager

Having been apart of this team before the doors even opened, I am excited to be back in the office as a licensed team member. I enjoy my interactions with our valued State Farm customers, as well as the relationships and associations within the office. I enjoy the process of creating, renovating, and innovating, weather it be a personal project that I'm working on or evaluating and creating more efficiency in a work flow. If you were wondering, yes, Ben is my husband.
