Joaquin Garza, Insurance Agent
Farmers Insurance

My name is Joaquin Garza and I have been a Farmers insurance agent for over 15 years. Being a son of a Vietnam veteran, and having many friends and family members working in the law enforcement, fire, medicine, and education, I highly respect and value the importance of their services. Therefore, when I heard about the Heroes Home Advantage program, I felt that this was an excellent way to show them our appreciation for their dedicated service to our country and to our community.
