About Us


Richard Russo, Agency Owner

 License #0672254

Agent with Farmers Insurance Group 28 years

Elite Commercial Agent Past 16 years

We have the privilege of serving the insurance needs of thousands of families and hundreds of businesses including commercial real estate, apartments, and homeowner associations through California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, and Utah.

I began my agency career in 1985 as a Young Urban Professional (or how they described it in the 80's a "Yuppie"). My wife was still in college and my business hours were 9:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Friday; weekends as well if anybody would see me. Three decades later I still enjoy the opportunity to meet with people, albeit at more reasonable hours, and discuss how insurance is the single most important professional service they will ever purchase.

Done correctly insurance will:

  • Pay the doctor, dentist, attorney, contractor and collision center when you have an accident. 
  • Keep the doors open if you own a business.

  • And with life insurance, keep the hopes and dreams alive for your family should life's journey take an unexpected turn.

I have seen first hand the benefits of proper insurance coverage and sadly I have seen the hopelessness of the uninsured. If you love someone or have loved ones that depend on you financially, then you better know your insurance agent. We all take risks in one form or another but don't risk being uninsured. Richard Russo Insurance Agency business model is built on Relationships and TrustLife is beautiful and life can get messy so get to know us before you need us.
