After 27 years as a Farmers Insurance agent, David Walker has taken an extended vacation after selling his insurance agency.
Walker is on an extended vacation according to Farmers Insurance Agent Kirk Dechert who told Discover Ferndale he has bought Walker’s agency located at 5678 2nd Avenue.
Dechert and his wife had been living in California the past 16 years, but wanted to be closer to family in Arlington. Dechert said he has been with Farmers Insurance for a long time selling agencies and thought it was time he bought one for himself.
Current customers will be able to continue to make payments and conduct business at the office. Dechert said it should be smooth conversion and customers can still expect to see Walker in the office a one or two days a week. Some remodeling of the office space is planned.
In addition to being a licensed insurance agent, Dechert is also a licensed financial services agent able to provide mutual funds, 401ks and help with retirement planning.
