Athena Insurance and Financial Services

Athena Insurance was founded in 1996.  Currently we have access to a wide variety of markets for Personal, Business, Construction & Agriculture.

The founder and broker Steve Valencia has nearly 25 years experience in the insurance industry as an agent, principal and broker.  His career in the insurance industry began in 1980 as a life insurance agent. Later he was introduced to property & casualty and eventually Securities.

For a few years Steve went into Landscape Contracting and Land Development.  But, his wisdom was well put to use in serving others in the insurance world. So he stated his own agency.

In 1996 Steve opened his own agency with the help of wife and children in the town of San Andreas California.  Eventually moving his office to Amador County where the office is located now.

Over this period of time the agency has acquired access to nearly 180 insurance carriers to meet the expectations of his clients.

The Staff at Athena Insurance and the underwriting and claims support teams from the various insurance companies are something we take pride in.
