Vince began his insurance journey in 2009, but had 20 years of risk management experience prior to opening his agency. Although the agency has changed in name throughout its time in New Mexico, its mission has always been the same: to work closely with clients to establish relationships that allow the agency to shop policies that appropriately protect assets and provide peace of mind. On any given weekend you can find Vince cooking Sunday dinner with his wife and three kids, hiking in the mountains with his two labradors, or fly fishing the rivers of northern New Mexico.
The "A" of ADV, Aletta was born and raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Having enjoyed four years of California sunshine attending Pepperdine University, Aletta decided to return to New Mexico and enter into the family business full-time, having worked as an agent during every summer break. Then, needing even more change, she decided to move to her favorite state and open up shop. When she isn't in the office, Aletta enjoys reading, cooking, exploring new restaurants and art installations and watching the Rockies (although the Yankees will always be #1 in her heart).
The "V" of ADV, Vincent was born and raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Thinking New Mexico didn't have quite enough snow, Vincent enrolled at the University of Denver where he is presently studying International Business and snowboarding every available weekend. When he isn't in class, the office, or on the slopes you can find him enjoying Denver's food scene or flyfishing any of the rivers between Los Alamos and Denver.
Our mission at ADV has always been relationship based. You should trust your agent and their agency to have your best interest at heart. Because we are not a captive agency (obligated to provide quotes from one single carrier), we can shop from a multitude of different carriers to ensure your assets are properly protected, and the premium paid for that protection is the most cost-effective possible. We're here to do the leg work, so you can rest assured knowing the quotes provided are the very best possible. Then, you can have what insurance should provide: peace of mind, knowing your agent has your back, and you're protected.
At ADV we always stress the importance of education to our clients. In fact, we've built our entire business model around it! From our Instagram account, which shares insurance facts and answers commonly asked questions; to our blog, which addresses larger insurance trends and principles; to meetings over coffee with personal lines clients and board member presentations for commercial lines clients; we strive to put education first, always. Our goal is to leave our clients with an increased understanding and confidence in the products presented, so they can make a well-informed decision.
We understand that each client that trusts us to review their insurance needs is unique, and requires that they not simply be treated as a community association, or realtor, or homeowner; but rather as GreatName COA, Bob Jones Realty, and Kendra Scott who lives in Santa Fe. That's why we take the time to look at each client independently, assess their personal needs, discuss their concerns, and work to find a policy that fits them uniquely. Insurance should provide peace of mind, so you can live the rest of your life as YOU, without worrying that you won't be protected in the event of a loss, and nobody works to provide this certainty better than ADV Insurance Agency.
