About Ruth Stroup
As a lifelong resident of California, I'm proud to serve to Oakland as your local Farmers® agent. I love educating people about how insurance works, and how to make it work for them
This year we are celebrating our 15th anniversary serving the community. We appreciate all of our clients and friends who make it possible to do this important work.
I am very involved in the community, supporting local schools including Glenview, Edna Brewer, Oakland Tech High School, Joaquin Miller, Crocker Highlands, Kaiser, Hillcrest, Peralta, Chabot, and Melrose Academy. I am also an active member of the Rotary Club of Oakland providing additional support to Oakland family with service projects, non-profit grants, and youth scholarships.
Whether you're looking for home or fire insurance for that new house or rental, auto insurance for the family car, business insurance to set up that new office or restaurant, life insurance to protect your family, financial services, or more - it's imperative for me that you have the coverage you need on the day you need it!
We hear from our clients that they want a local agent, and that they like supporting our community by shopping at local businesses. We think this is awesome because that's what we do too!
Even if you're located in Berkeley, Albany, Alameda, Emeryville, San Leandro, Castro Valley, El Cerrito, Richmond or beyond, I welcome you to stop by my office which is conveniently located near beautiful Lake Merritt in the Grand Avenue business district of Oakland. I will make the insurance process easy and personalized so that you can rest well knowing you are covered.
When not in the office you can find me walking the lake, shopping at the farmers market, or connecting with locals at fundraisers, festivals and networking events!
Give me a call at (510) 874-5700 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
