Magistro previously worked for a prior Allstate agent at the St. Clairsville location. He purchased the business in 2012, and has been growing it ever since.
Magistro grew up in the Colerain and Martins Ferry area. As a graduate of both Bellaire High School and The Ohio State University, Magistro is committed to helping people of the Ohio Valley.
"I really like interacting with the people around here. They're good, hard-working people. I like the idea that I am able to help them with something. I like making things easy for people," he said.
"Insurance can sometimes feel like a chore. It always seems like it's the same with every company. We try to show that we're a little bit different. We're going to be able to give you something that's affordable for you and what you and your family need, but also something that's going to be there for you when you really need it. I like being able to do that for people."
The staff at the Luca Magistro Insurance Agency is top-notch as well. The office manager, Julie Daley, has been with Allstate for more than 15 years, giving her valuable knowledge and experience in the field. "(Daley) really makes the office run," Magistro said. "She's kind of a jack-of-all-trades around here."
The agency has also recently hired a new employee, Deborah Hofmann, to assist with hands-on comprehensive financial services.
"(Hofmann) has more than 20 years in the financial services industry," Magistro said. "That experience allows her to help protect what matters most to our customers. We are excited to have someone in our office with such extensive knowledge of insurance products. She will be a huge asset to our agency."
"I want to be a client's trusted advisor on all things insurance, showing what their policies can do for them while making things as easy and affordable as possible," Hofmann said.
Also helping out in the office is Mike Gerevics, who has over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry.
"(Gerevics) is someone I've really learned a lot from and someone I appreciate having around," Magistro said. "He's a great guy who is always looking to help people in any way he can."
The Luca Magistro Insurance Agency offers automobile, property and life insurance, as well as protection for motorcycles, boats, motor homes, recreational vehicles and businesses. With Hofmann on board, the agency is now also better equipped to provide its customers with comprehensive financial services as well. Staff members are able to offer guidance and counseling about the various insurance products, helping customers choose the insurance coverage that best meets their needs and budget.
The Luca Magistro Insurance Agency is located at 67925 Banfield Rd. in St. Clairsville, near the Ohio Valley Mall. Office hours at the agency are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment. For more information, please contact the agency at (740) 695-4574.
