Home Insurance

Summer is rapidly coming to a close here in the Auburn, King County area, and it is time to take a look at that pre fall home maintenance. You will want to make sure those gutters are cleaned out and ready for the fall rains. You know how it can rain here in the Seattle area. You may want to clean and store those window air conditioners. Also take a look around the home for safety issues such as broken sidewalks, over grown bushes, etc. Finally, lets take a look at that home insurance and make sure you are in good shape. Spending a little time now can save you time and money later.

Auburn Teachers

The Auburn School District  prepared for the coming school year by welcoming all the new teachers. During late August the Auburn Chamber along with a host of other sponsors helped welcome Auburn’s new teachers by hosting a breakfast at The Outlet Collection. It was a pleasure to attend the welcoming event, as well as being one of the contributors to the swag bags. Alpine Ridge Insurance Agency loves to get involved with our community and teachers. As part of the event each teacher was introduced by name, school attended, and where they will be working in the district. This was a wonderful event! Thank you teachers!!!!

Insurance Networking

In August I attended a grand reopening of the Quality Inn & Suites located in Pacific, Washington. I would like to thank the new owners for putting on a wonderful event! The new owners also completed a major renovation of the property and they are ready to do business. As a local business owner of Alpine Ridge Insurance Agency is great to see individuals investing into the local community. If you are looking for a place to stay in the King County area give them a try. Again thanks.


I completed a 2000 mile road trip on Eagles Wing a 2001 Honda Goldwing. I visited the Grand Coulee Dam in Eastern Washington, Yellowstone National Park, and Cody Wyoming before turning the bike towards home. This was my longest trip so far and I found touring on the bike a wonderful experience, even sleeping in a tent or at a KOA. The photo was taken during a rest stop near the East entrance to Yellowstone. Weather you own a Harley Davidson Motorcycle or a Honda Goldwing, if you would like to talk motorcycle touring or motorcycle insurance just give me a call at 253-833-9501. Have a great rest of the summer.

Home Insurance

The heavy summer months will be drawing to an end in a few short weeks. Now is the time to think about the home maintenance projects you have been putting off. How is that paint doing as well as the gutters, windows, moss on the roof. Try to get those projects done now when the weather is good. It is a good time to take a look at that home insurance, renter insurance or auto insurance policies as well. Although I cant help with the home projects, I would be more then happy to answer any insurance questions. Have fun for the rest of the summer and take a moment to enjoy your family…


On Thursday evening I attended a networking event at Bruchelle’s Bagel Bistro located in the Covington area, you can find them on the internet. Everyone that attended enjoyed the atmosphere and the wonderful food. I had the Sweet Chili Chicken on a plain bagel with chips and it was excellent. If you would like to meet some really nice people and enjoy some really great food, give them a try.

Summer Fun

Some people have fun by going hiking or swimming at a beach. Not my friend Perry, he built his own airplane and now flies back and forth across the State. This is a great aircraft and he did an outstanding job putting it together. Kim made him a cover for the front of the plane to provide some shade on those sunny days. We don’t provide aircraft insurance as that is a very special market. We do provide home insurance, auto insurance and umbrella insurance which is something every one needs.  Give Perry a wave if you see him flying over…
