Receiving a 5-star review on Google and having someone refer a friend or family member is the ultimate compliment for us, especially when it comes to life & auto insurance. Many new customers have found us through a Google search, utilizing life insurance and related keywords, and we are proud to provide exceptional customer service and care in this area. With over 40 years of combined experience, we have a deep passion to understand and meet your life, auto and accident insurance needs for both you and your family. Before reaching out to us, take a moment to consider what matters most to you when it comes to life insurance and protecting your family's financial future. You can also browse our online reviews to see how we measure up to your expectations. If you're looking for a sincere and genuine partner in securing your family's future, we invite you to visit our office or give us a call. We are confident that we can earn your confidence and business in the realm of life & auto insurance. April is distracted driver awareness month! We do our part to remind our customers and the community to eliminate all distractions, such as cell phones, loud music while you are driving to insure that you reach your destination safely. It only takes one accident to disrupt your life, and having full awareness behind the wheel is a great way of keeping you and your family safe.

We understand the importance of having a unique Family Protection Plan that aligns with your family's goals, especially when it comes to insuring your life both on the road and at home or at work. Life is full of unexpected changes, and the financial burden of medical expenses can quickly deplete savings. However, with our supplemental medical coverage and life insurance policies, you can focus on your recovery and family while State Farm takes care of the rest. Whether you're expecting a baby or preparing for a new family member, protecting your family with a life insurance policy will ensure their future is secure, even if something happens to you. You have probably heard a lot of life insurance commercials on the radio, with offers seemingly too good to be true...turn off the noise and come talk to us! We can offer a personalized review of your financial goals and provide an honest recommendation for life insurance for you and your family.

In addition to life insurance, we also help in helping friends living in wildfire areas find California Fair Plan policies. We understand the challenges of living in an area where most insurance providers won't write a homeowner's policy due to the risk of wildfires. However, the CA Fair Plan, combined with our in-depth understanding in life insurance, is a great option to consider for your home protection needs.

At Barney Storms State Farm Insurance, we are committed to offering our community Family Protection Plans that cater to their unique needs, with a focus on life insurance. We believe that insurance should be easy to understand, and our bilingual staff is here to help. Hablamos tu idioma! As a local home-grown agent, we represent Kern County's heritage and values.

We also offer a complimentary asset review to ensure your coverages align with your risk tolerance and life insurance goals.

Send that annoying duck back to the pond and call our agency to learn how we can put money back into your pocket anytime you have an emergency or non-emergency trip to the hospital.

Judy Baird State Farm Agent Team Member

Judy Baird

Customer Service Representative

Hello friends, family and Bakersfield residents! My name is Judy Baird and I started my State Farm career working for agent Roger Hess for 20 years. When Roger retired this year, I was elated when Barney Storms asked me to join his State Farm Team. I am a licensed State Farm representative with my licenses in Auto, Home, Business, Life, renters, Property/Casualty insurance. I love being local and grew up going to school in East Bakersfield even attending college at Bakersfield JR college. It’s the perfect place for any family to get started. My parents raised 5 girls with me being 4th in line and my son now has 4 boys with his beautiful wife in the Bay area. If family is as important to you as it is to me, then ask about our Life Insurance policies so they can better be protected during these trying times.

I worked at Kern Schools FCU now known as Valley Strong for 6 years in finance. Then, moved to Kern Federal CU and now Strata Credit Union for 25 years of loan and insurance experience combined. It is at the credit union I first got my insurance license eventually joining the State Farm family.

I love music and dancing as did my parents. The whole family took dance lessons from John Debonaire ballroom. I was a majorette starting in first grade. I loved marching in parades. At Bakersfield college, I was in the Banner Line for a year. I enjoy live concerts, country western and 60’s music.

I am involved with The Cancer Foundation where I am happy to volunteer. My passion for their foundation came from the loss of my two sisters to cancer, and my friend of 60 years. I support Children Hospital in LA and here in Bakersfield as my son was a 28 week 2lb preemie and we stayed at Children hospital in LA for almost 3 months. The Ronald McDonald House is close to my heart also.
