WORTHINGTON — When Jessica Noble saw her opportunity to become a State Farm agent in Worthington, she seized it and started her classroom and on-site training in the office that once belonged to agent Kevin Lease.
“I enjoy the insurance agency a lot and the opportunity to build relationships with people,” Noble said.
She officially became an agent Jan. 1, but has been working at the office at 1244 Oxford St. for months as the last part of her training with State Farm. Prior to joining State Farm, Noble was an independent agent in Worthington.
Staying in Worthington and making the jump to State Farm was especially attractive to Noble because she’s from the Worthington area. Noble graduated from Sioux Valley-Round Lake-Brewster Schools and then graduated from Concordia College, Moorhead, and she, her husband and two children live south of Worthington.
“I’m really glad to be here,” Noble said. “I’m excited to be in Worthington, with family and friends.”
She decided to become a State Farm agent in order to own her own agency and because of the quality of State Farm’s products.
“It is the number one insurance company. It’s a great company to work for. It’s value-based,” Noble explained. “When I work with my friends and family, I want to make sure I’m selling them the best product I can.”
Many new agents end up moving, but Noble has gotten to stay in her home town and has found many of the names in her client list to be people she already knows.
“My favorite part is sitting down and meeting with the clients. You get to know them and see their progression,” Noble said. “When I’m doing my job, and I’m protecting them the right way, that’s the best part.”
Noble’s priority is not just to offer clients good plans, but to ensure they will be happy with whatever plans they choose, feeling comfortable and more secure about their choices.
“Great customer service is our goal and to be a part of the community,” Noble said.
Clients have already been coming to see her and her two team members, Melissa Remme and Jessica Velasco. Both team members hold licenses and Velasco is bilingual.
“It’s been good,” Noble said of her time at the Oxford Street office. “It’s busy.”
The area’s recent bout with bad winter weather has spurred many insurance claims, many caused by slippery roads and difficult driving conditions.
“With this type of weather, it’s towing claims and fender benders,” Noble said. “We’re trying to make sure we handle these quickly and get them back on the road.”
Noble’s team offers 101 State Farm insurance and financial service products, including auto, farm, homeowner, life, business and health insurance, as well as checking accounts, savings accounts, and retirement products. The services are designed to offer clients a full spectrum of risk management options.
Some of the services people commonly skip, but should consider, are life insurance and disability insurance. When budgets get tight, Noble said, life insurance is often the first thing to get dropped
“We want to build a relationship with our clients and help them meet their needs, but also to help them prepare for their future,” Noble said. “They can protect what they have and then reach their dreams.”
