Although State Farm Insurance is a large company, my office is local, offering you the benefit of both worlds: the security of a financially sound company combined with the personalized knowledge of a Berkeley local. Since 1985, when I started my State Farm Agency in Berkeley with degrees from UC Berkeley (BA Music) and University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana (MA Music), I have been dedicated to enriching the community through my musical skills on the violin and viola, supporting local organizations like Cazadero Performing Arts Camps, Young People's Symphony Orchestra, Berkeley Symphony, San Francisco Opera, and Albany Music Fund (more below).

Thank you for visiting my digital State Farm Insurance office! I invite you to come say hi in person at the SE corner of Solano and Tulare in beautiful Berkeley, CA. My talented State Farm team and I are here to help you find the right insurance and financial services products that align with your unique needs. Whether you're a Berkeley local or call San Diego home, we proudly serve the entire State of California. I am truly passionate about what I do, taking pride in helping our Good Neighbors prepare for the future and safeguarding the things and people that matter most to them. Our mission is to ensure that things go right for you!

My brilliant team of State Farm Insurance representatives and I are excited to earn your business. Our goal is not just to provide you with a list of products, but to truly understand you as an individual. What are your goals and aspirations? What is your personal vision of financial soundness? Let's start by conducting a no-obligation insurance review to assess where you currently stand and chart a course towards your desired future. Throughout every stage of your life, my team and I will be here to support you. Together, we can create a Personal Price Plan that protects what matters most to you.

In these challenging times, it is crucial to protect the ones you love. Let's discuss Life Insurance through State Farm and how it can provide a shield for your family against the unexpected. We have Life Insurance offerings that cater to a wide range of budgets, ensuring that you can find the right fit. If you currently have work-provided Life Insurance, it's essential to understand who owns it. Our State Farm office can help you create a personalized approach that combines your Auto Insurance and Life Insurance, potentially saving you money.

At State Farm, we prioritize building lifelong relationships with our neighbors. Whether you're in the market for a new car, a used car, or something in between, let's get you an Auto Insurance quote today! We believe in crafting a Personal Price Plan that provides optimal coverage for your unique situation. With our local presence and diverse coverage options, we can tailor a policy that meets your needs at reasonable prices. If you're considering switching insurance providers, we'd be thrilled to discuss all the benefits of State Farm Car Insurance. When you work with me, Frank Bliss, at State Farm, you're not just getting an Auto Insurance policy but also a team of seasoned insurance professionals who are dedicated to your financial well-being.

In addition to my insurance work, I am actively involved in supporting local musical organizations such as Cazadero Performing Arts Camps, Young People's Symphony Orchestra, Berkeley Symphony, San Francisco Opera, and Albany Music Fund. I am also affiliated with the Berkeley Breakfast Club and the Kiwanis Club of Berkeley. Previously, I served as a Scoutmaster for Berkeley Troop 5 and was the President of the NALU chapter (now named NAIFA). As a professional violinist and violist, I had the privilege of spending a year playing with the Amsterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, where I even learned some Dutch (though it's a bit rusty now)!

Thank you once again for your incredible support over the years. I am here to assist you with any questions or assistance you may need. Let's continue this journey together, creating a bright and secure future for you and your loved ones!
