I’ve been with Farmers for many years and they’ve taken great care of me and my Honda. When ever a situation came up that I needed insurance help, Farmers made everything easy and comfortable. Thank You Ruth + Farmers :-)

Angel at Ruth Stroup’s agency was beyond helpful! We were in need of information quickly, and Angel was incredibly prompt in getting the information, and then revised information we needed!!! Wonderful customer service so far!
— CHARNAR W. 😍 PACIFICA, CA

We couldn’t be more pleased — My 3-Unit HOA was looking for a master insurance policy, so we reached out to Ruth Stroup with Farmers Insurance. She was quick to respond and introduced us to Angel Jahani (commercial underwriter), who got us secured with a new policy by the end of the day at 57% of our existing carrier’s renewal quote. Thank you, Angel and Ruth, for your quick reply and great assistance!

I need specialty insurance from time to time. Ruth gets it done — she says Yes when others say No. Today, I spoke with a wonderful employee named Betty — she was polite, helpful, informative and caring. Hurrah!

Ruth is the most helpful insurance agent I have found in my 4 years so far in California. Last week I bought a car and was coordinating with a dealer and a bank in different time zones. Noel and Danielle were fantastic with incredibly fast turnaround on insurance quotes, binders and faxes to each party. Thanks again to everyone at the Ruth Stroup Agency!
— NEIL S. 😍 MONTCLAIR, CA

I just got commercial insurance from Ruth and the customer service was wonderful. I very rarely write a review, but my experience was so great, it merited one. I went to Ruth in desperate need of commercial insurance because I just landed my biggest corporate account and I needed extensive insurance coverage. I came to her office they got everything taken care and went beyond the call of duty, by calling the property manager of my client to made sure I had everything they requested. I would not have been able to secure this account without Ruth and her staff. Thank you so much Ruth
— ANGELA J. 😍 BERKELEY, CA

We’ve worked with Ruth for our restaurant group. She’s helped us insure multiple properties and projects. We love her team. Angel has been so helpful and has really helped us to make sure we’ve got everything we need for compliance.

Not only do they provide top-notch service, but they’re community-minded and follow up with customers regularly to make sure we’ve got what we need if anything changes over the course of the life of the business. I can’t recommend Ruth and her team enough, and recommend them to all my colleagues and friends seeking coverage.
— ERIN A. 😍 SAN FRANCISCO, CA

After 10+ years getting poor service and no attention from several area insurance agents, and trying the “no agent” services like that provided by Costco, we finally found someone who listened, answered our questions, got us excellent coverage, wants our business...and saved us money while increasing and improving our coverages. It’s kind of like doing you own taxes for years, then finding out you can pay someone a small fee to save you the fee many times over - legally. I highly recommend the Stroup Insurance Agency, and the personal attention provided by Ruth Stroup.

Ruth has been my Insurance agent for the past 8 years. When I moved to Oakland, not knowing anyone, I found her through yelp and what a pleasant surprise! In addition to being prompt, efficient and easy to work with, she is warm and friendly and found little ways to make sure that I felt at home here in Oakland, CA. She lends a personal touch where she can and over the past 8 years I’ve always known I could call or email and get what I needed very quickly. She epitomizes quality customer service.

I was lucky enough to buy a vacation rental a few years ago and she provided the coverage I needed so quickly, it helped my real estate transaction close in record time.

Over the 8 years she has done client appreciation events and truly endeavors to get to know her clients and provide a friendly, family oriented atmosphere. It’s rare to find that type of warm touch in the insurance industry.

Now I’m moving to Washington D.C. and I know I can rely on her and her staff to ensure I have the coverage I need on my rental properties in a stress-free transaction during a time when my stress levels are extremely high with a cross-country relocation.

Thank you Ruth! You’re a gem in the industry - never change!
— SABRINA A. 😍 OAKLAND, CA

Ruth Stroup and her team are absolutely incredible, Betty started the process for us. My borrowers moved to Oakland from Chicago and on the day we were set to sign the loan documents the clients insurance agent was a no show. I called Ruth in to help. In less than two hours (way less) she call the borrowers with an insurance quote and was ready to go with in the hour. WOW! Thank you, Thank you.
— JESSE S. 😍 EL CERRITO, CA

Ruth and Danielle helped me with both auto and homeowners insurance policies. Very quick to respond to questions and extremely helpful. Thank YOU!
— MIKE L. 😍 OAKLAND, CA

Ruth is a super Star. Ruth really went the extra mile for my family saving the day when our agent called her after hours. She was vary knowledgeable understanding our problem and jumping into action.
— DIANE C. 😍 SAN JOSE, CA

I’ve been with Farmers for years and Ruth Stroup and Danielle in the Oakland office are great. When ever I call and need help they are right on it for me and if I don’t call they are very proactive and they call me to see if there is anything I need. Great Job Ruth and Danielle!
— EZRA C. 😍 UNION CITY, CA

Ruth came to our rescue for an urgent insurance matter of which we were suddenly faced. She stayed on the phone with us until our problem was resolved. We recommend Ruth, for she saved the day, AND she was very friendly and understanding.
— KENNETH R. 😍 CONCORD, CA

What a refreshing change from the internet or phone. They took the time to truly explain what everything means when we bought our home/auto policies - what she thought we needed and why. Furthermore, she ensured that if we need to change our policy she is there to help. We switched initially for the great rates, but the customer service is what kept us on board! They have always been helpful despite my numerous questions! I was clueless about insurance and they did a wonderful job making it easy to understand. Any time I’ve had a question they have gotten back to me right away. Thanks Ruth and staff!
— AMY S. 😍 EMERYVILLE, CA

Smart and Professional are the two words that describe this group. The entire staff is exceptional at what they do. As a local Realtor it’s nice to know that I can refer My clients and they will receive great service and advice.
— KRISTI R. 😍 BERKELEY, CA

We moved our all our insurance to Ruth about a year ago. Since then I have not worried whether or not we are properly insured. And she truly understands the concept of customer service. After working out coverage with her input, all we had to do was write the check and she took care of the rest.
