We're Hiring!!! Contact our office directly to inquire about the details or send us an email. We are grateful to have been able to represent State Farm and serve the local communities for nearly a dozen years now! We have trained and worked with some of the most talented people in our office and continue to do so, in our mission to provide the most outstanding service in the industry. I didn't necessarily know this about myself when I started, but as it happens, being a part of watching staff learn, grow, and succeed, has been one of my greatest joys! The current pandemic has presented some new challenges, but has also taught me a great deal about how we can better operate and bring the things that matter most into focus...relationships and being there for people! Our office is currently trying to do our part by being in the office and collaborating with each other, in an effort to navigate and serve you all; while trying to limit outside interactions where possible. We very much look forward to seeing you all and working with more closely in the days ahead, and appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to get there. Here are some of the things we have been doing this past year and ways that we have learned to adapt and cater to our every changing world. We have converted some previously used office space to accommodate our staff's children and the need to provide additional assistance with schooling. We have learned more than perhaps we ever cared to about all the ways to connect with others virtually. In turns out that we like face to face interactions more;) We have learned like never before what it means to be flexible with routines and individual circumstances with our staff and customers. Perhaps, most of all, we have and are still learning to be more understanding and have compassion for others, something we feel the word could use a lot more of. When I am not at work, some of the things I love most about living in the Pacific Northwest are being outdoors, biking, playing tennis and golf, traveling, and spending time with my wife and our 4 kids. We thank you for your support and trust in us and we will continue to work hard to warrant that trust and earn your referrals of friends and family!

Team Leader

Bilingual Spanish- Ten years ago I joined the team at the Ben Brown office. Over the years I have experienced 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.

Bilingual Spanish- You may know me from friendly reminders. In the last four 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 do 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.

Rebecca Brown

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.
