John Michael Holmes
About Me

Rating 4.9

As an Ohio native and Monroe resident, I am proud to be your local Farmers Insurance® and Financial Services Agent serving Monroe, Middletown, Liberty Township, Lebanon, Westchester, Mason and the surrounding areas. I help customers like you identify the solutions that best fit your needs. Give me a call and we can discuss all your options for auto, home, life, business insurance, and more.

At the John Holmes Agency, we pride ourselves on our tremendous customer service and strive to make the insurance process as easy as possible. We offer fast, reliable, and knowledgeable assistance for all things insurance. We aim to respond to all requests within 1 hour, so let us know how we can help you today.

We start the process by having a friendly conversation and learning about all the aspects of your life. This allows us to better understand your potential liability and what we need to protect. Then, we advise you on all of your options when it comes to insurance and help you make the best choice for your unique situation. We will assist by providing real-life scenarios that show how your policy would behave in a variety of situations.

When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and my children. We like to travel, fish and golf together. You might see us at Top Golf on occasion! My oldest is now serving in the Navy and our youngest is a freshman at Monroe High School.

With over 5 years of experience in the insurance industry, I understand insurance forwards and backwards. I also owned 2 small businesses. These experiences have given me a unique understanding of what it takes to protect our local businesses and families. Stop by and see me sometime! I'm located right next to the RR crossing on 995 North Main St, at the old train depot. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to my agency.

Give me a call at (513) 818-1885 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Ask Me About:

Relying solely on life insurance from your employer may be a bad idea for three reasons: it’s usually secondary insurance, it’s often not guaranteed and it’s often not portable. Let me explain:

Secondary: Employer life insurance can be minimal, many times just enough to cover funeral expenses. If you have life insurance included with your employee benefits, it may only be 1-2x your annual salary. Many financial experts recommend you have 5-7x your annual salary, which you may want to obtain through purchasing your own primary policy and then supplementing that with your employer-provided policy.

Not Guaranteed: Employee benefits often change year to year. While you may have an affordable life insurance plan this year at work, the rate could increase, the plan could be canceled, or you could lose your job.

Not Portable: Just like other employee benefits, when you leave, benefits cease. While you may be eligible for life insurance now, you may no longer be eligible when you start a new job or are unemployed. If you purchase your own life insurance policy, it will be independent of your employment situation.

Life is all about options and choices, and so is Farmers Life insurance. With a variety of coverage options and products such as Whole Life, Term Life, Universal and Variable Life, you can find the coverage that you want for your family and your needs.

    Mr. John Holmes has gone above and beyond with his assistance, as we were in the middle of purchasing a second home and trying to transfer home and auto insurances from several companies simultaneously. Our realtor and mortgage company agent needed information asap, and Mr. Holmes was more than accommodating getting them what they needed when they needed it. Thank you for your assistance John!

    Time well spent. I look forward to working with you moving forward.
