About Me

Welcome to the James Demmer State Farm Agency!

My name is James and it’s been a privilege to own the State Farm Agency located at 13 James P Kelly Way Suite A, Middletown, NY. I started my journey with State Farm in 2011. Every day afterwards, I envisioned opening my own State Farm Agency until I was afforded that opportunity in 2016. The years before opening the business consisted of working long hours and saving all that I could. Fortunately for me, I fell in love with the daily routine of helping people. It brings me great pleasure to be in a position to help our customers save money, become better protected, and plan for the unexpected. The success we've experienced in our Middletown location allowed us to open our second office location in Port Jervis, NY. My team and look forward to assisting just as many families out of our Port Jervis location.

Our insurance agency is proud to serve all of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania with Auto Insurance, Home Insurance, Renter’s Insurance, Life Insurance, Supplemental Health Insurance, Business Insurance and Financial Services in English, Spanish, Arabic and American Sign Language. We also serve as a licensed Notary Public.

Please give our office a call today at 845-344-FARM(3276) and see why we’re one of the fastest growing agencies in the tri-state area!
