About Me

Welcome to the Derek Alota Agency in South San Jose, CA.

It’s back to school time in the south bay! While the kids meet their new teachers, you can meet with your insurance agent! Now is a good time to make sure you have all your insurance and financial needs covered. We offer phone, virtual and in-person appointments.

I started with State Farm Insurance April 2010. I get to help people every day- from managing the risks of everyday life, to recovering from the unexpected. I help our customers with all aspects of their financial lives. I love being able to help people every day and would love the opportunity to earn your business as well.

Having been born and raised in the Bay Area, I love being involved with our community. My office is located a few miles south from my alma mater, San Jose State University. Go Spartans! I’ve been involved with local non-profits organizations, and local chambers.

As a small business owner and new father, I understand what it’s like to have a very busy schedule. I understand how important it is to make sure your family is protected. Let my team and I handle your insurance in an efficient and effective way. Let us worry about how to protect your family while you enjoy them.

Karen White

Insurance Account Representative

Hello, my name is Karen and I have worked with State Farm for 16 years, five of those years for Derek. Derek & I are a good fit because we both believe in strong customer relationships. Before State Farm I didn’t know much about insurance, and now I really enjoy explaining what the coverage means and answering questions. I want people to feel comfortable with what they have, or are buying. I have always loved to help people, even in my personal life. It’s been an interesting journey selling car insurance, home insurance, small business insurance, boat insurance, and life insurance. I like them all, but I absolutely love working with home insurance! I come from a family of contractors and handymen, so it’s fun looking at the features of the homes.

On a personal level, I’ve lived in the Bay Area most of my life, with a short stint on the east coast. My son and his family live near, so I get to have fun with my grandchildren. I like hiking, local fairs and farmers markets, and spending time with friends
