Farmers Insurance Agent in Sparks, NV

George Davis Velarde
About Me

Welcome to the longest standing Farmers® Insurance agency in our area! This agency was originally opened by John Hesse in September of 1969 and moved to its current location (433 Greenbrae Dr.) in 1991. After 51 years of dedication to his clients, John Hesse retired in January of 2021 and transferred ownership of his agency to me where I seek to continue John's legacy of excellent customer care.

I have been a Reno/Sparks native since 1991 and love it to this day. My wife Jamie and I were married in 2003 and we have three boys together between the ages of 9-14. Prior to becoming a local Farmers® agent in Sparks, I was a pastor at a non-denomination church for 17 years at a church here in Reno, primarily focused on counseling and teaching. I have a big heart for helping and caring for people which has served my clients well within the insurance industry. In addition to my day job as an insurance agent, I am also a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist ( Some of my hobbies/passions are backpacking, disc golf, homebrewing, bass guitar, and home improvement projects.

Give me a call at (775) 359-2200 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
