Mars, PA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
A new Farmers Insurance agency opened near Mars, PA. The DiMedio Agency office is located in a renovated 100-year-old farm house at the intersection of Route 228 and Mars-Valencia Road. The owner, Gregory DiMedio, sees the new agency office space as a key feature for selling Farmers Insurance products.
“When we were scouting locations, we looked at new commercial spaces in nearby shopping districts,” DiMedio said. “These shopping areas offer a lot of conveniences, but we wanted a space that was more in line with our style of reviewing and selling insurance. We felt we needed a place that was more comfortable and inviting for customers.”
Customers pull up to a brick, two-story farm house with a glass enclosed entrance and red front door. The farm house-turned-insurance-office has many of the original features blended with new ones. Eco-friendly LED lights shine on original plaster walls while renovated mahogany pocket doors separate a modern workspace and conference room. Older photos hang on walls above flat-screen monitors for displaying digital insurance quotes.
“The space greets our customers with a sense of history and vitality,” said DiMedio. “They know that Farmers has been around since 1928, growing to the third largest insurance company in the nation. And when they visit, they can see we understand the history and tradition that makes this area such a great place to work and live.”
DiMedio’s wife, Dawn DiMedio, runs an architectural firm in downtown Pittsburgh and is the designer of the space. “The Pittsburgh area has many older homes and offices. These properties have timeless features, and I like to preserve what I can as part of the experience in the space,” Dawn DiMedio noted.
Deciding which insurance company to buy coverage from or trust with property is becoming more challenging every day. "Everyone has unique needs and requirements for insurance coverage and every company offers a variety of options," said DiMedio. "With a friendly office space and Farmers Insurance products, we can simplify the insurance buying experience with one-stop shopping for auto, home, life, and business insurance products."
