#BizintheGig: Kent Cashman, A State Farm Agent that is Giving Back Big Time In the Gig

Let’s be honest, car insurance, home owner’s insurance…not really fun. Necessary and required but seriously who writes a blog about it? Realtors that work with insurance agents to make sure their buyers can get their home loan do! And let’s face it we all want to be covered when that water pipe bursts (which happened to me this week…hence the late blog post).

But this story is more than just shining the light on State Farm Insurance, because just like real-estating… its all about the agent. Kent Cashman, who runs the State Farm office off Kimball drive is a humble go-giver, consistently giving back to our Peninsula School District schools. He is a strong believer in our public schools and education. He has been a large supporter of Peninsula Hands on Art, that serves all 8 elementary schools with art for every student, he came in big this week to support the Stand Up for Peninsula Schools bond campaign and today we are prepared to give more!

Kent and I have teamed up to donate $5 each for every comment left on the blog. Funds will be directed to Stand Up for Schools, the organization that will support the YES Vote for a bond for our Schools.  So find that share button and encourage your friends to comment below!

Along with being a generous supporter of our community, Kent Cashman is all about top notch customer service and satisfaction. Insurance is in his blood, his parents have been in the business his whole life and his office off Wollochet and Kimball Drive in Gig Harbor turns 4 this year (Happy Birthday!). I am current client and just recently had to file my first claim…..so sad. But who did I call the minute I needed to TALK to someone? I called Kent, directly on his cell. That is the type of service he provides, not long excruciating wait time on the phone, because when you need to call your insurance agent it’s usually a BIG DEAL. His team of 4 full time agents have always been accessible and provided great, friendly service.

Kent and his wife grew up in Gig Harbor, went to through the public schools here and are raising their son in Gig Harbor North. (Gig Harbor 4-Eva). He is genuine and wicked smart, if you are the market for insurance, call his team for a quote- they are professional and trust worthy. While insurance isn’t a sexy beast to blog about, in the real estate business, you have to have it to get a loan. Your home is one of your largest assets, if  not your largest. Kent can walk you through all of the options on what to look for in an agent and how to save the most by bundling your services.

His pro-tips when shopping for an insurance company are to consider these three elements: Claim Satisfaction, Service and Cost. “Don’t sacrifice something that is important to you due to price,” He recommends looking for a local company who you can talk to and explain the coverages, deductibles and the limitations that exist to see if you need to add on additional coverage. A local agent can Area specific coverage, what you need to protect yourself in your local market.
