Farmers Insurance in Marysville is under a new owner and a new location, and the new Ashlee Smith Insurance Agency under Farmers Insurance opened their new doors this February.
Moving to 1235 State Ave., Marysville, the new offices held their ribbon cutting on Feb. 3.
New owner and insurance agent Ashlee Smith said it will be the same Farmers Insurance as before, providing automotive, home, life and commercial insurance.
Smith hopes that her insurance advice can help and protect families.
"I think people always think of insurance agents as salespeople, but I think of myself more as an advisor," she said.
She wants people to feel confident in their insurance when they leave her offices, she said.
The office always has an "open-door policy" as well she said.
"I always like to tell my clients to stop in and say 'hi' when they're in the area, even if it's not about insurance specifically," she said.
Smith's mother has been with the company for 17 years, so she says she "grew up with Farmers."
She has worked with the company in Vancouver, Wash. and Bothell in the past before coming to Marysville.
In 2015 she began working with the former owner of the Marysville agency, however he passed away. Smith said she worked with the former owner's wife until she offered to sell the business to Smith.
"I'm very excited for this new opportunity," she said.
She has taken over the clients of the former owner. "My client base has been very welcoming," she said.
Smith's office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Monday through Friday. The phone number for her office is 360-659-4114. More information about Smith is available at her Farmers Insurance page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
