Passing through Bellevue on Capital Avenue you may see a familiar face in Bellevue in a new place in town. 

Barnes Insurance Group of Bellevue, formerly King Agency, Bellevue, has moved from their previous location on Main Street to the former Independent Bank. Last January, the opportunity arose for longtime King Agency Producer, Randy Barnes, to purchase the Bellevue branch from David King. Having the work experience of 27 years at King Agency the camaraderie between Barnes and King made for an easy transition into what is now Barnes Insurance Group. Carrying over the employees and same exceptional service from this independent insurance agency, Barnes Insurance Group experienced a smooth transition from King Agency and into their new building, which they moved into over Thanksgiving weekend.

As Bellevue’s independent insurance agency, Barnes Insurance Group provides services for home, auto, farm, retirement, business, recreational vehicle, and life insurances through multiple reputable carriers. Listed here are a select few of the many carriers that Barnes Insurance Group offers services through: Auto Owners, Hagerty, CNA Surety, Progressive, Hastings Mutual. 

With the newness of Barnes Insurance Group, owner Barnes told me, “We are all truly blessed and could not ask for a better community here than the one we have here.” As a way to say thank you and welcome the community to their new office location, Barnes Insurance Group is having an inaugural open house on Friday, June 21 happening from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Where there will be a grill out and Moo-ville ice cream.

If you are needing a new insurance agent, look to Barnes Insurance Group where they stick by their mission statement, “Right coverage at a reasonable price.” Their new location is at 204 W. Capital Avenue in Bellevue, where the open house will be held, and also where you can find them for all your insurance needs.
