State Farm Insurance

Updated November 19, 2020

Proclamation presented March 20, 2017 to State Farm Insurance at Cerritos City Council Chambers.

State Farm Insurance opened in Cerritos in 2007, when an opportunity to have a local office was presented to Jim Barr, a local State Farm Insurance agent. Barr owns and operates the State Farm office located at South Street and Bloomfield Avenue. He is originally from Michigan and comes from a long line of State Farm Insurance agents, including his grandfather, Samuel Barr, who was one of the first part-time agents in the 1930s.

State Farm Insurance in Cerritos offers a wide variety of services for its clients, which include auto insurance, home insurance, property insurance, business insurance, life insurance, health insurance, banking products, annuities and mutual funds.

There is an ongoing trend in the insurance industry, in which companies and agencies have commoditized their products during recent years. For example, most insurance representatives will prescribe solutions without ever diagnosing the problem. State Farm Insurance in Cerritos uses a different approach. The company strives to understand what’s important to its customers and help them do what they want with their insurance needs. Barr and his State Farm Insurance team are highly trained and committed to providing a professional approach to solving problems for their customers.

The community of Cerritos, with its diverse and well educated population, seems to appreciate this approach to insurance as the Cerritos office has grown 50 percent since 2008. Barr looks forward to many successful years of offering a wide variety of insurance products.

State Farm Insurance is located at 12616 South Street in Cerritos. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and evenings and Saturday by appointment only. The phone number is (562) 924-4459 and the fax number is (562) 924-4459.
