TORRANCE, Calif., Oct. 18, 2016 – GEICO has opened a new local office in Torrance at 20026 Hawthorne Blvd. to help serve customers throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Insurance professional Kevin Berger will lead a team of four licensed agents at the new location.

Berger and his staff, made up of agents Kelly Berger, Leslie Van Cott, Leopoldo Guzman and Bryce Corden-Yoshida, have an extensive insurance industry background and can provide counseling and quotes on GEICO's full portfolio of insurance products. Along with auto policies, the team also can help with renters, homeowners, motorcycle, umbrella, boat and more forms of insurance.
