GEICO opens local office to serve North Denver

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo., Nov. 7, 2017 – GEICO has opened a new local office at 5145 Kipling St. in Wheat Ridge, Colo. Michael Martinez, a 15-year insurance industry veteran, will lead a team of four licensed agents at the new location.

"As Denver continues to grow, we're eager to handle all our resident's insurance needs," Martinez said. "We look forward to bringing competitive rates to those living nearby in Wheat Ridge, Arvada, Westminster and more areas from downtown Denver to locations north of the city."

Martinez places a strong emphasis on educating agents about unique coverage needs. Prior to coming to GEICO, he not only worked as an insurance agent, but also served as a professor at the Gold Coast School of Insurance. Martinez and his team of agents – Krystal Neil, Mike Castro, Josh Kruse and Cassandra Medina – can assist customers with auto coverage as well as homeowners, renters, motorcycle, RV, umbrella and more forms of insurance. The North Denver local office also has Spanish speaking agents on staff.

GEICO agents in the North Denver local office look to bring savings to policyholders through multi-line and special association discounts, and to those who take an approved defensive driving course in the state of Colorado.

Look for GEICO's presence to continue growing in the North Denver area – the office has already begun forming partnerships with local car dealerships, apartment complexes and churches. Also, the North Denver local office is deeply committed to serving the community. Martinez serves as a board member for Fundación Internacional Amigos del Niño con Cáncer, an organization that brings Latin American children to Disney World who are recovering from cancer.
