The doors of the Chrysalis Insurance Agency opened in 2010, under the leadership of Eric P. Evans, Owner / Agent (Ca Broker’s License # OD89368).  Eight years prior, Eric entered the insurance industry as an agent with Farmers Insurance Group.  During his service at Farmer’s, Eric received numerous awards for his product knowledge, client dedication, and sales volume, where he continually strived to be the very best…!

In 2010, Eric believing in an unwavering commitment to customer service, opened the Chrysalis Insurance Agency in Costa Mesa in 700 square feet, and within 18 months, moved to larger quarters where the agency is presently located on Red Hill Avenue.

Now more than a decade later, Eric has built a reputation of earning each customer's respect not once, but twice.  First, at the time their policy is written, and second when a customer needs assistance with the complexities of an ever changing world of insurance.  Whether writing a policy for the first time with CIA, making changes to an existing policy, renewing a policy, or desiring assistance to make a claim…three simple but meaningful words define the Core Values of CIA…these are:

Trust, Value and Choice…!

These three words form the foundation under which each CIA employee must adhere to…in their relationship with each CIA client.

Each of us make decisions everyday based on our values, and those values make us who we are!  They drive our decisions, and most often become the root of our passions.  It is this same reasoning, which each CIA employee draws upon in their everyday working relationship with a member of the CIA family.

As an independent insurance agency, the CIA is proud to have direct appointments with over two (2) dozen insurance companies to include Safeco, The Hartford, Oregon Mutual, Liberty Mutual, Travelers, Allied, MetLife, Nationwide, and Maphre just to name a few.

So whether you are a family with teens, a couple nearing retirement, a business owner with a fleet of vans, the CIA professional team or insurance advisors can help you with all your insurance requirements – for personal and/or business.
