King & Associates holds ribbon cutting at new Sawgrass Village office


Representatives from the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce’s Ponte Vedra Beach Division were on hand Aug. 23 to help local insurance agency King & Associates celebrate the grand opening of its new Sawgrass Village office.

Located at 3202-3 Sawgrass Village Circle in the Falls professional building, the new office marks the reestablishment of King & Associates as an independent insurance agency after a two-year partnership with another agency. Owner Frances King said the new office will enable King & Associates to continue do what the agency does best: provide the one-on-one, personalized service to clients both old and new.

“We’re small enough that we can really concentrate on taking care of our clients and their needs,” King said, noting that some staff members have been with the agency for more than 15 years. “They all have extensive backgrounds in insurance and good experience in working with our clients.”

King herself has more than four decades of insurance experience; in addition to homeowners’, auto and business insurance, King & Associates offers policies for high-value homes. And now is a particularly good time for homeowners to assess their insurance needs, she said.

“It’s a very soft market for home insurance right now,” she said, “which means it’s a good time for people to shop for homeowners’ insurance to get the best rates.”
