Give me a call, stop by, or email me today to start a conversation regarding your best options for home, auto, life,¹ and business insurance.

At the Ballentine Insurance Agency, we always go out of our way to be there for our clients when they need us. You won't get stuck dealing with an impersonal 800 number and people you've never spoken to before. Whether it's a claim, question, or anything else, call us first and we will make sure you're taking the necessary steps to solve any insurance problem.

We get to know our clients on a personal level. This way we can determine the appropriate insurance coverages to ensure you and your assets are being taken care of. And it doesn't end there.

    Your associate, Pete, took good care of me. He got me covered for auto and home at a lower price than I had been paying.

    Bret is the consummate professional. His ability to build rapport and friendship with his clients is only matched by his ability to get you the most competitive quote. When you walk in, if it isn’t Bret meeting you with a smile, it’s going to be Pete!
    I trust my family’s financial future with Bret, and you should too!
  • Rating 5.0
    Out of all the insurance agents I called, Bret not only the most responsive but he was also the most prompt. Answered all of my questions and handled the entire process professionally all the way through. He even followed up after providing me with the quote the next day which none of the others did either. I couldn’t be happier and I appreciate Bret’s efforts and as a result I am now a Farmers insurance policy holder.
