Insurance agent celebrates 10 years on Larchmont Boulevard

| October 22, 2023 | 0 Comments


As of this November, State Farm Insurance agent Leisha Willis will have been serving the Larchmont community for a decade.
Located at 500 N. Larchmont Blvd., Willis’ business has grown a lot since she first opened her doors.

Willis loves being on the Boulevard. “It feels like home,” she says. The small business owner enjoys knowing her clients personally, and they appreciate having a local agent in the neighborhood.

Just this summer, Willis expanded her business to include four states: California, Arizona, Oregon and Nevada. She finds this exciting and sees it as a way to keep things fresh and to keep her skills sharp. “It’s a nice way to accommodate clients here who have properties in other states,” she said.

The Mid-Wilshire resident has been very involved in the Larchmont community ever since she started doing business here. She served on the board of the Larchmont Boulevard Association for eight years and took on a board officer role for some of that time.
Willis continues to support Boulevard events, and this year, her office is one of the sponsors for the Larchmont Family Fair’s stage.
It was announced three years ago that Willis’ longtime office space at 500 N. Larchmont Blvd., along with the building next to it, would be razed and replaced with a five-story residential building with 21 multi-family dwelling units.

Willis told us there are no indications that the project is moving forward anytime soon. She assured us that, if and when plans do move forward, she plans to relocate somewhere on the Boulevard.

Willis is very proud of her agency’s accomplishments. “I’ve been blessed with some of the best customers and team members that I can imagine,” she told us. Currently, Willis has two fully licensed agents in her employ.

The agency has been honored with numerous awards including being named a Chairman’s Circle Agency, which places her business in the top 5 percent of State Farm Agencies nationwide.

Congratulations to this longtime Boulevard businesswoman.
