With spring on our minds, we've been thinking a lot about helping our Good Neighbors step into a new season with their insurance plans in great shape. When was the last time you got an insurance review with our team? Whether you think it's time to update your Auto, Home, Life, Business, or Renters Insurance plan, we are happy to help you explore your options and make a choice that may help you navigate life's unexpected chapters. Have you connected with the Nick Pate State Farm team yet? April is distracted Driving Awareness month . When is the last time you checked your auto insurance liability coverage if something were to happen to you or your family? We would love to discuss with you the importance of being properly insured.

As someone who was born and raised in this area, I have a real passion for assisting my community members with their insurance queries. I have worked with State Farm since 1993, and I am proud to say that my team has a combined total of 80+ years of insurance experience. If you're looking for someone who has a unique perspective on helping customers like you, please look no further! You've found the team to help. Here in Howard County, we put our customer service and insurance skills to use supporting our friends and neighbors with a variety of insurance options, including Auto, Home, Renters, and Life Insurance plans. Whether you are looking for coverage for a new baby, a new business, or a new boat, we certainly have options for you, your loved ones, your pets, and your precious belongings! Do you want to discuss our personalized plans? We would love to hear from you, so please give us a call or stop by our office to get to know our dedicated team.

When I am not in the office helping my Good Neighbors insure their car, motorcycle, boat, home, loved ones, or health, I am usually easy to find! Just look for me out on the water enjoying a number of hobbies, such as sailing or fly-fishing. When the weather gets chillier, I also enjoy skiing and spending time in the snow with my loved ones. I truly love all the beauty that is to be found outdoors in Kokomo, so let me know your favorite spot for outside activities the next time you visit our office. I really appreciate my team and all their efforts to be there for our customers through all of life's messes. I have enjoyed getting to know each one of them and I hope you will feel the same. If you're interested in chatting with us further, I hope you'll take initiative and stop by our pet-friendly office to meet us! We would love to get to know you and your pups as we walk you through our available plans and discuss your needs. We look forward to welcoming you!
