Farmers Insurance Agent in Richardson, TX

Melissa Cazares Bankard
About Me

Rating 4.9

As a proud Texan for over 35 years, I'm happy to serve Richardson and the entire DFW area as your local Farmers® agent. We make customer service our highest priority. We will take the time to understand your needs and help you find the right coverage, whether that's auto, home, life, business insurance, or more!

I bring over 22 years of insurance industry experience to my agency, and I want to put my experience to work for you! I'm a 2nd-generation insurance agent, so you could even say that I've been around insurance my entire life! My background as a homeowners adjusters has given me a unique understanding of how to ensure our Texas families can protect their homes with the right policy. Come see me if you want an agent who truly knows all the ins and outs of this industry.

When I'm not in the office, I love spending time with my wonderful family! I have 3 beautiful kids, and we love spending time together being silly and having fun. If you'd like to meet them, just click on the Facebook icon below! We treat our agency like a family affair, and our kids star in a series of short movies we make to help teach people about insurance.

Stop by to see me sometime! I'm located across from the Home Depot on the corner of Coit and W. Campbell Road in the Lennox Center. I'd love to sit down with you to discuss your insurance coverage today.

Give me a call at (972) 761-9333 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Great agent, love her videos. Farmers would be considered fools if she ever applied for a district manager position and they didnt give her the position. Fools I tell ya, Fooooolllllsss.
