Our Servcies


Insurance is crucial for businesses large and small. It can be the difference between going under and succeeding!


Life insurance is the most important policy you will ever own!  We can create a plan able to help through the many stages of life.


Home insurance is more than just your roof and four walls.  Let us help you understand the whole picture.


Insurance for items not typically covered under the basic auto and home policies.  Unique dwellings, boats, motorcycles, outdoor equipment, and ATV’s.  We have your solution!


Not understanding your auto insurance could cost you more than the repairs to your vehicle.  We will make sure you are protected. Let us review your current coverages.


For times when the liability coverage on your home or auto is not enough.  A personal umbrella policy is a good solution.  We have options for our business clients as well.

Lucas Cole

Owner/Licensed Agent

I have been in the insurance industry for over 17 years, and 14 of those were as a Claims Representative. My claims experience allows me to be a better insurance agent as I truly understand how the claims process works.

I am a father of two and have been married for the last 15 years to my wonderful wife.  I understand that protecting the ones we love, and our way of life is important to every one of us.

Steven Coleman

I have been an Oregonian since 2001. I relocated to Portland in the summer of 2007 and have made the Kenton neighborhood home. I have one amazing teenage daughter, Hallie.
I was originally born in Buffalo, New York and was raised a Buffalo Sabres (NHL) fan. After attending high school in Annandale, New Jersey I went on the obtain my Bachelor’s of History at Canisius College in Buffalo.
I spent two years in Corvallis, Oregon working as a morning show host on radio station KVBR.

My current hobbies include yard work, reading, watching movies, traveling, and exploring all that Portland and the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Jose Salgado

Licensed Agent

I’m a firm believer that hard work, dedication, and preparation will overcome the downs and adversities in life. When people undergo a traumatic or a severe loss, it can be devastating and overwhelming. My immense passion is helping people through a difficult time, as well as preparing for the unexpected.

Born and raised in the beautiful neighborhood of St. John’s. I graduated with a Manufacturing major at Benson Polytechnic High School. I’m a current student at Portland Community College working on my associates in Business & Management. Some of the hobbies are reading, working on 1986 Trans AM, trying local microbrews and taking a good nap.

For the last six years, I’ve worked in all aspects of the auto industry. I worked at Dick Hannah Volkswagen & Hyundai in the service department for three years. I Helped with warranty claims, repairs and maintenance. I Jumped into sales and finance for a used car dealership. I understood the power of listening, asking the right questions, explaining and simplifying the finance process was key to finding the right vehicle, and an affordable monthly payment for my client. I’m currently a licensed Insurance agent working at the Lucas Cole Insurance Agency in my own neighborhood.


Lucas is quick to respond when we need to reach out to him, and several times has gone above and beyond to help us. We are very happy with the service he provides!
We had actually considered leaving Farmers and then they changed our agent to Lucas Cole. Now, our questions are answered quickly, changes are prompt and appropriate, and some of our coverage has changed to better levels (while some went up, others even went down). Lucas seems to really care that Farmers provides what we need, he doesn’t just try to sell to us.
Thanks, Lucas!

My experience with Lucas has been excellent. He and the folks on his staff have always followed up and followed through taking the time to make sure I have all of the information that I need to make good decisions and looking out for my interests. Often times, going above and beyond compared to my experience with other agents / companies. Would highly recommend.

These guys went out of their way to get us what was a very specialized policy. They drove to us and viewed the site to ensure we had the correct coverage.
Awesome response times and highly efficient and polite. Great people.
