Happy Summer from all of us here at LINO AMARAL's STATE FARM Agency in Pinole! The heat of summer is upon us and new ideas are sprouting all about. Our office is air conditioned so it may be a good time to get out of the heat and schedule an appointment to look at your financial goals and insurance coverages, especially since the industry as a whole is a bit crazy. It's important to regularly review and update our financial goals and insurance coverage to ensure we're on the right track. I can assist you in getting started on the right track for the years ahead. The sooner you start, the better!

We are always available virtually, by phone or in the office to address your questions about your insurance and financial needs.

Please note that Online Quoting for AUTOS & LIFE Insurance are NOW once again AVAILABLE! PLEASE feel free to CALL / TEXT or schedule a Virtual Meeting or VISIT my office directly with any questions.

As it relates to homeowners or other fire insurance, after careful review and thoughtful consideration, State Farm has temporarily suspended writing any NEW fire insurance business in California. Please call my office with any questions.

My team and I are always committed to help you with all of your insurance and financial needs including the subject of LIFE INSURANCE. We will broach the subject in every conversation we have with our customers - it is that important!

Our mission is always to exceed our customer's expectations by building quality relationships which enable us to provide excellent service - don't take my word for it, just take a look at some of our REVIEWS!

We do this by helping customers manage their everyday risks through a combination of proper coverage and reasonable price - this is the foundation of my agency philosophy. Let's have a simple conversation about your current coverages and what they actually do and (don't do) for you and your family! Afterall, you never want to find out you do not have adequate coverage at one of those times when you actually need it!

A veteran of the insurance and financial services industry for over two decades and a State Farm Policyholder for over 30 years, I am here to help you with all of your insurance and financial service needs. As a former CEO of a not for profit fraternal life insurance company, I have developed a keen understanding and desire to better inform my customers about managing risk and how insurance plays a role in protecting what you have worked so hard to earn. So whether it is insurance for your Auto, Home, Life, Business, RV, Boat or your Motorcycle, I look forward to becoming your source for your insurance needs.

As a lifelong Contra Costa resident, I am fortunate and proud to be a State Farm Agent in the community that I was raised in! I am a West Contra Costa native, born at Brookside Hospital, grew up in Tara Hills, went to Kerry Hills Elementary, Pinole Jr. High and graduated from Pinole Valley High School where I excelled in football and track and was very active in school leadership and a parishioner at St. Joseph's Church. Pinole, Hercules, Rodeo, Port Costa, Crockett, San Pablo, Richmond, El Cerrito are towns that are dear to my heart-- I know West County! Regardless of where you live in California, I am licensed to provide you with the breath of insurance offerings that State Farm offers and the "Like a Good Neighbor" service that State Farm has become famous for!

I am a proud and passionate son of a Portuguese immigrant who enjoys spending as much time as possible with family and friends and especially my wife, Linda and my three children, Matthew, Monica and Lindsey and my parents who still reside in Rodeo. Whether it is at home, family functions, cultural events, playing golf, cooking or camping I cherish every moment of this life I have been blessed with. Stay Safe!
