About Us

Joanne Barrios is a San Francisco Native raised in Oakland. She attended Skyline High School to be followed with graduation from the University of California at Berkeley. Joanne and her children reside in Pleasant Hill. Joanne started working in the insurance industry back in 1998. She started her own agency in 2002 as a Farmers Insurance Agent. In 2020 she decided to go 100% independent and that is when the Joanne Barrios Insurance Agency was born. 

Away from the office, Joanne enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Her interests include DIY projects, spending time at the family lake house, going hiking, reading, and traveling. 

Joanne’s agency is built upon on a solid foundation highlighting the significance of strong interpersonal skills that offer first class customer service. What sets us apart from other insurance agencies is that we offer the one to one attention that each customer deserves, a quick response to all your questions, and a sincere desire to put you as our number one priority. 

Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently.

The most successful entrepreneurs I know are optimistic. It’s part of the job description.
