PABLO-BEACH-77106108-276x300“…He’s kind of nerdy. You know, tight khaki high-water pants. We call him ‘Jake from State Farm’…”

We recently had someone telling us a work story, and the above quote was part of it. We get it. Insurance, specifically insurance salespeople, tend to get tagged with stereotypes. In truth, there are a lot of ‘Jakes’ out there; boring, sometimes sleezy, typical traditional agents.

Throughout our 11 years as a firm, we have stayed true to our roots as a firm that’s locally owned, with a casual approach that delivers professional results. We aren’t interested in growing into a mega-firm. We like having an intimate knowledge of our clients, and value treating them like family. Like we’ve said many times before, “Let our family serve your family by offering insurance advice and products to protect what matters most to you”.

To prove we aren’t a bunch of ‘Jakes’, we’d like to introduce you to the more personal side of some of our team/family. While we are serious about delivering professional results, we are still normal fun-loving people.

“When we went to look for Insurance on our Restaurant, Shaun Murphy of Pablo Beach Insurance was awesome. There were so many things we didn’t even think of. He was able to insure all of our needs with an exclusive package no one else even had access to. I would highly recommend Shaun and Pablo Beach Insurance as the Restaurant Insurance experts in North Florida.”

– Avid sports fan. Tampa Bay Rays baseball fanatic.

– Love the beach, golfing and being outdoors.

“Evan Marcotte has been a wonderful agent.  I’ve been working with him for nearly a year and he has been very informative, honest and responsive to my insurance questions.  He really has tried to help us get the best quotes for our situation. He took the time to analyze our current insurance policies and was able to make some excellent recommendations. Our insurance costs are now less and we have much better coverage. I’ve had bad experiences before with agents who seem to not really care, and Evan has really turned that around for me and my family. I am really excited to have Pablo Beach as my agency, but especially having someone like Evan that we can trust and count on as our insurance agent.”
