Happy March! As we make the transition from Winter to Spring, and we start to see the changes, the blooms and blossoms all around us, we are encouraged by warmer days to come. We celebrate Women's History Month and National Credit Education Month. C

Welcome to the State Farm Bandy Insurance Agency! I am Darryl Bandy, Jr., your Good Neighbor and local State Farm Agent since 2001. My wife Gina and I have raised our three children in Davie County and have lived in Advance since 1998. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with our family, mountain biking, fishing and hiking. We love being a part and supporting our community!

Before joining State Farm in 2001, I was in the food-service business for 10 years supplying local restaurants and healthcare institutions. My desire to help people in a more meaningful way was fulfilled after a lengthy and competitive six month interview process. I was selected to begin training to become a State Farm Agent in July of 2001. I’m thankful to have the privilege of owning a business that serves others in our community and all of North Carolina.

We have a dedicated team of licensed representatives who are committed to providing our customers with personalized service and care. With their knowledge of the vast array of State Farm insurance products, they are uniquely positioned to identify ways to manage your risks and realize your dreams. Our team collectively has more than 43 years of insurance experience! Our agency has been recognized by State Farm regionally and nationally with Senior Vice Presidents Club, Ambassador Club, and the Circle of the Chairman.

Our team is ready and excited to assist you, and we have 24/7 Good Neighbor service after office hours. Call or stop in for a free Auto Insurance quote, Homeowners, Condo, or Renters insurance quote, to discuss Life Insurance options, as well as Motorcycle, Boat, and RV Insurance. Each of our team members is equipped to offer free Notary Public services! We can’t wait to serve you.

As a small business owner myself, I understand the unique needs of small business owners, and am privileged to offer Small Business Insurance for many industries and types of businesses.

At my Agency, we focus on:

· Helping families manage their car and home insurance expenses.

· Insurance for cars, trucks, motorcycles, golf carts, RVs, boats, and jet skis.

· Discounts when you combine your Auto Insurance and Homeowners, Renters, or Condo Insurance.

· Providing quotes for Life Insurance and helping customers calculate the amount of Life Insurance they need.

· Helping small businesses with business insurance, as well as commercial auto insurance.
