What if you could save on your insurance AND save the planet?

When you choose Jay Scott State Farm you’re doing both!

Our team’s goal is to plant 1 billion trees by 2050. We planted over 60,000 trees in 2022.

100% of the profits from our business go towards climate action!

Our success is only possible with your support!

We’re asking you to join forces with us – use your everyday insurance payments as an instrument of good.

Great news: choosing to have your insurance here is also good for your pocket too!

The foundation of this agency is built on three pillars:

1. Customers with Clarity – we believe it is important to know what your insurance covers and what it doesn’t, so when you go through a claim you can remain calm knowing you’re protected. We pride ourselves on communicating in everyday language and handling questions to help you understand the decisions you are making.

2. Seeing the Big Picture – when you look at each policy on its own, it’s easy to miss out important ways they all work together with coverage and discounts. We’re conscious about taking a step back, seeing the whole picture together with you, and helping you make important decisions with the whole story in mind. We pride ourselves on personalizing your price plan and giving you competitive choices!

3. Culture of Care – our team loves to serve and take care of our community! We want you to value us being part of your life and continue to grow your trust in how we serve you in deeper ways. Insurance is just the beginning (protecting what matters most to you now), but we have myriad ways we can actually help set you up for a strong future as a family too.

Our office is located in Albany, CA near the El Cerrito Plaza but we serve customers across California; in particular the East Bay Area including El Cerrito, Berkeley, Kensington, Richmond, San Pablo, Emeryville and surrounding communities. We acknowledge that our office is situated on the traditional territory of Ohlone and originally occupied by the Chochenyo tribe prior to western colonization.

Our agent Jay Scott was born in South Africa and moved to New Zealand as a teenager. Both countries shaped him significantly. South Africa connected him to natural wildlife, while New Zealand taught him a love for untouched nature.

Jay was raised by two loving parents who’ve remained married for 35+ years, and who ran businesses throughout his childhood. This experience taught him a love for being an agent of his own destiny and has formed him into a serial entrepreneur having since he was 19 years old.

On a business trip to the USA, Jay met May; who captured his heart. They were married 18 months later with Jay making the USA his new home. Today, they have young kids who explore and adventure the local streets of Albany and El Cerrito. This added responsibility is a driving force of the agency’s mission to plant 1 billion trees and make this planet livable for future generations.

WE HELP FAMILIES BUILD A FOUNDATION OF FREEDOM FROM CONCERN. We live our lives as an act of service to this generation and the next. Our goal is to help our community gain more freedom from concern. We do that by insuring against life's uncertain events that can cause financial strain or devastation. We also improve the financial well-being in our community by helping with financial management, building up emergency savings, debt relief, helping renters become homeowners, planning for retirement, and gaining access to funding for buying and improving assets. We help retirees manage their health costs more effectively, improve their financial security and manage unexpected health events. We do all the above, whilst using our profits to fund climate action and regenerate our earth.

We believe that, by helping people better manage the concerns of everyday life, they can dedicate the energy and resources required to face and conquer our global challenges including the climate crisis.

Liz Rogers

Office Manager

As a Sonoma County native, I was surrounded by farms and redwoods as a child; which ignited a passion for animals and the environment. I've been working in insurance since 2018 while living in Los Angeles County with my husband, our cat (Norman), and our corgi (Stella). I love hiking and going to the beach. I enjoy taking care of of my family and yours by providing vital information regarding your insurance and financial services needs.
