About Us

About Our Agency

Founded in October 2006 by Jerry Becerra, CPCU, Barbary Insurance Brokerage is an independent insurance broker in San Francisco. At a time when small independent insurance agencies are being absorbed by larger institutions, we believe that there is a need for smaller agencies that have personal connections with their clients. The staff members at Barbary each bring a different set of skills to help our clients and work as a team to provide the best service possible.

We are located in the financial district of San Francisco and take our name from the Barbary Coast. There may not be pirates in these waters any more, but there are a lot of things that can go wrong. Whether your concern is fire, earthquake, liability, workers’ compensation or something else, we are here to help.

Our list of insurance carriers includes many of the industry leaders. However we also place a wide range of specialty products, often with companies that are not commonly known by consumers. We help our clients research and evaluate different options and make informed decisions. Pricing always needs to be competitive, but coverage is equally important. Insurance is always too expensive if it does not do what you need.

As we grow we will be adding more services. Please let us know what you need and we will do whatever we can to assist.
