Farmers Insurance Agent in Franklin, TN

David Yates
About Me

Rating 5.0

While growing up in Southern California, my parents instilled in me a strong work ethic and self-reliance. So did the Boy Scouts. Graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Advertising and started working in my chosen field after graduation. Met a Tennessee girl and moved to the Nashville area in 1990 to get married and start a family. First job here in Tennessee lasted 14 years, working up to Marketing Director, then Director of Sales, for a Brentwood, TN publishing company. When the company was sold, my position wasn’t needed, and I had the opportunity to re-think the second half of my life. I’ve always wanted to have my own business, and all things fell into place in establishing my own insurance agency in Franklin, TN 2006, marketing Farmers Insurance Group products.

My dedication is to show families in Franklin TN, and the rest of Williamson County, how to spend their auto, home, and life insurance dollars wisely, while also properly protecting their loved ones and their assets. I get particular enjoyment out of teaching folks what all those terms and numbers in their policies really mean. You won’t find any cookie-cutter advice here! You'll find I have the knowledge and experience to help you better understand your coverage options--whether that's auto, home, renters, life, business insurance and more--so you can make the smartest decision.

For many years, my agency has been engaged in our local community as a sponsor at local schools, and boys and girls soccer teams with the Williamson County Soccer Association. Providing free Child ID Kits to the community has long been a favorite activity for our agency.

I also enjoy helping my clients with non-insurance related help like business networking, newcomer’s advice, referrals, and much more. Anything to help. Our office is conveniently located in the Cool Springs area of Franklin, TN

Give me a call at (615) 778-1816 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    David was very helpful as I was in a hurry to get renters insurance just before I moved into the place I am buying later this month. The seller let me move in early as I had to be out of my previous location. I did it all over the phone. I was given his number by my realtor.
    Response from David
    We appreciate the opportunity to serve you, Saundra. I'm glad your realtor connected us!

    Beyond excellent - from the very first phone call, Wendy made me feel right at home, informed, and protected from the vagaries of commuting, road trips, and change experienced with my former insurer. She walked me through all my options & stayed in close contact through every step. As things progressed & stabilized with my status, she placed markers to contact me when I could move to a more favorable plan. Every conversation has been a delight & a distinct relief for this single mom. Thank you!

    Both Wendy and David were extremely helpful by walking me thru all policies with patience and professionalism. I didn’t since that wanted me just as a Farmers customer but as a neighbor and friend. If they didn’t know the answer they made sure they found it in a timely manner. Great experience and glad I chose this agency.
