Welcome to my State Farm Agency!

As a local State Farm agent in Rotterdam, NY I have had the privilege of helping customers with their Auto, Home, Life and Small Business Insurance since 1998. I enjoy being a part of my community and building relationships in the Capital District and throughout New York State. I have been proud to be a part of this exceptional company since 1984 as a claim associate, Re-inspector/Trainer, Claim Superintendent and eventually, a State Farm Agent.

My wife, Stacy, is also a State Farm agent. We relocated to the Albany area to start her business in 1990, and over the years we have seen our own family grow and change in ways that often mirror the changes that occur in the families that we serve. As luck would have it, my youngest son, Kevin joined our team after graduating college just a few short years ago.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve the families and businesses of the Capital District and our many customers across New York State. Please give our team a call, send us an email or text, or take advantage of our 24-Hour Customer Care for your Auto, Home, Life, and Small Business Insurance needs.

Summer is just around the corner! Don't forget to call us to cover your sunny weather toys such as ATVs, Golf Carts, and Boats!

Mia Levanites

Account Manager

I was born and raised in the Capital District (with a very short stint in Maryland) and currently reside in Schenectady. I have worked in the customer service industry since 2002, and began my insurance career in 2012. After many years working for auto dealerships, the career change was a natural fit. I am licensed in Auto, Fire, Life, Health, Business, and am also a notary. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching and going to sports games (go Baltimore!) music, cooking, and taking my dog on all kinds of adventures. My goal is to provide remarkable service and put our customer's needs first!

Customer Service Representative

I've called the Capital District my home most of my life, proudly raised in Princetown, NY. I started my journey in the insurance industry in 2020 and am now licensed in Life, Health, Property, Casualty, and Business. Outside of work, I spend time with my family, watching football (Go Buffalo!), and am busy raising my young son. A fun fact about me is that I design and hand-make dreamcatchers as well as knitted blankets. Come visit me at our office or call today so I can help you with all your insurance needs!
