The heart of who we are comes from our rich history
Simmons Insurance has not always been the big local business you've come to know and love. In fact its beginnings were quite small. Started in 1974 by founder Larry Simmons, it was initially a one man operation selling out of Larry's apartment. Soon after the startup, Larry was contracted by Kansas City Life. Things quickly began to move forward and Simmons moved into their first office building and began hiring more agents. In 1989, the company moved into a new building on Main Street. This location is still the main Hermiston branch.
In recent years, the company has began opening offices and partner offices all over the Northwest, with now over 20 locations. Simmons Insurance has become one of the largest servicing insurance companies in the area, insuring over 25,000 clients. In 2014, Larry Simmons handed the baton to his son, Justin Simmons, and his son-in-law, Jacob Neighbors. The two have both been a part of the company's team for over 10 years and are now managing partners. We are proud of where we started, where we have been and where we are headed. We can't wait to serve you today!
