Hope everyone has a great 4th of July! I'm the only native Seattleite Double Ivy League graduate (who grew up poor) Seattle's ever produced. I'm the only State Farm Agent Owner (I know of, at least) who NEVER set foot in ANY insurance agency, in any capacity, EVER, before purchasing this small business--& after nearly 6 years of totally immersing myself to help others, I'm an expert at getting people more coverage. For less money. And greater value.

When I was 8, my Dad died without proper insurance, leaving my Mom to continue working as a Hospice Care Provider (which she did for over 50 years) while raising myself and my siblings. From Mom's example, I worked and 100% paid for my own college (Brown University, Providence RI), I worked through law school (UPS/Seattle University Law), I worked through passage of several Bar Exams (WA State, CA, GA & TX), I worked through enrollment in a Master of Fine Arts graduate program (Berkeley, CA) and I worked to earn my second law degree (Columbia University, NY, NY). After 25 years of attorney work (including with a few billionaires...yes, really) I repaid all Double Ivy League student loan debt, then I saved to open and sustain this small business. Thanks to Mom, no matter how hard things were, her belief, resilience and the right energies kept me on the right path (and yes, I'm a fantasy/science fiction lover, too)!

My Team and I have over 31 years of combined insurance experience to get YOU more coverage, for less of YOUR money and at greater value to YOU as indicated below:

1. Home Insurance (the greatest asset of many Washingtonians) Rental Insurance (greatest pricing on the planet)!

2. Auto Insurance (please ask about our multi-car discount and Drive Safe & Save discounts)!

3. Term Life Insurance (we can lock in price for 20-30 years; yes, REALLY & we can help get U get every penny back)!

4. Health Insurance (yes, we can help YOU to avoid high deductible payments and do Supplement plans)!

5. Small Business Insurance (yes, Americans have more small businesses TODAY than ever & Wkers Comp Ins. too)!

6. Rental Home insurance (yes, and kudos to YOU for having rental properties we can cover for less)!

7. Attorney, Accountant, Personal Stylist other Errors & Omissions Insurance (yes, because STUFF happens)!

8. Surety & Fidelity services (yes, and we provide FREE NOTARY SERVICES as well)!

9. Pet Insurance (yes, we understand our pets are our family; I had a cat named "Stoop-Squeak" for 26 years)!

10. Building Insurance (yes, we cover strip malls, Apartment Complexes, Restaurants, Condo Buildings, etc)!

11. Need I go on---call us today at 2068017181--we pride ourselves on getting back to YOU ASAP and of course we give "free quotes" to all Washingtonians at zero cost to YOU (just in case your current family member insurance person is charging too much and undercovering you--we understand and help with that, too)!

12. Finally, one of my middle names is "Ernest" in our late-stage capitalism world (per the below).

Please note that sincerity, genuineness, authenticity, honesty, virtue, truth over time, keeping it real and EARNESTNESS is in all we do, so please call! Earnestly, Bruce Ernest Lloyd Matthew Str-->OTHERS Monday, May 13, 4:48 pm
