LOCAL INSURANCE

AGENT HONORED FOR 20th ANNIVERSARY

West Carrollton, Ohio — While people may tend to think of the typical insurance agent as a staid, quiet and sedate person who only answers questions after consulting with a computer, local State Farm Insurance agent Bob Goldberg is not your typical insurance agent.

With pictures of his clients’ babies on the wall, a lobby full of toys and books, and a four-pound, one-year old dog named Coco, who eagerly greets anyone who comes near the front door, Goldberg’s office reflects his outgoing, down-to-earth personality that has contributed to his 20th anniversary at State Farm Insurance.

A Cincinnati native and graduate of Citywide Learning Community and Xavier University in Cincinnati, Goldberg also studied theater at the U.C. College Conservatory of Music, and Playhouse in the Park. He has served in several capacities at State Farm, including as an adjustor, in bodily injury and casualty, and as a casualty adjustor.

His warmth and friendliness has defined how he has approached his business and he explains that his goal is to simply make life a little easier for clients. “When you think about it, the insurance business is a family business,” he explains. “Everything we offer greatly affects a family member, not just now, but for many years, or decades, in the future! This is a very satisfying way to earn a living.”

For example, Goldberg points to a program that allows parents and grandparents the opportunity to save for a college education that can be started when the child is an infant. Called a “529 Plan,” this provides tax-free funds when the child begins college, and can be used for a variety of needs.

With a full-service office located at 932 Water Tower Lane in West Carrollton, Goldberg notes that his office handles 72 products, including auto, homeowners, business, farm and ranch, health, life and annuities, disability, renters, long-term care, flood, and personal items.
