About Us

My name is Kevin Boland, CIC and my wife and I have lived in Novato, Marin County for the past 27 years.  We raised our daughter who attended local grade schools here and Novato High (Go Hornets!).  We care about our community as all good parents do and we give back by donating time and money to Novato Human Needs, School Fuel, Novato Youth Groups, and the Gilead House. 

My team members are long time Marin home owners and proud parents.  See their bio’s below.   We deliver fast and friendly local service when you have questions about your insurance bill, need a certificate, or an insurance ID card, or when you need claims assistance.  We know our clients by their first names and are not a giant call center 2000 miles away so expect personal service!   Please read our Yelps to hear what our clients say about us!   

Kevin Boland, CIC LUTCF AIC
Farmers Agent
CACM ECHO Active Member

I graduated in 1984 from U. C. Berkeley with a degree in Political Science and a minor in Business Administration.  I completed my national insurance exams in 2004 to obtain the LUTCF, or Life Underwriter Training Certificate Fellow degree.  My other credentials include CIC (Certified Insurance Consultant) and AIC (Associate In Claims).  I managed property insurance claims for 9 years for one of California’s largest insurance company’s.  This tough and often emotional work trained me to make sure that my clients today are properly insured……..before the accident happens. I fight smart and hard for my clients when a claim is filed. You need an experienced advocate to represent you during the claim process to the insurance carrier and I love this part of my job. Hire me as your Agent and you get an experienced Claims Representative as an extra bonus!    

I HAVE A PERSONAL LIFE TOO
Somehow besides owning and managing a small business, I have been able to have a personal life!   I have been married for 26 years to a smart, hip and amazing women named Audrey. Together we raised our talented daughter in Novato.  My favorite activities are attending educational events at ECHO and CACM, ASSCA, playing golf, reading, swimming, weight lifting, wine tasting, beach walking, and chillin with friends.  I also currently serve on my HOA, or Home Owners Association board for Parkhaven HOA, with a group of hard working and smart home owners.
