Welcome to the Denise Elliott State Farm Insurance office! I have offices both in Bayfield and Durango, CO. We have been helping our customers in the local community with their insurance needs since 1980, and the most tenured State Farm agent in the Durango area.! We are able to assist with the insurance needs of our customers living in Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Michigan, and North Carolina! If you live in Bayfield, Aztec, Ignacio, Silverton, Dolores, Telluride, Ouray, Mancos, Hermosa, Pagosa Springs, or anywhere in between, we can give you a hand!

🌸I'm excitedly awaiting the arrival of spring and the array of opportunities it presents to assist you with your insurance requirements. Much like the blossoming flowers and lengthening days, this season offers an ideal chance to review your coverage and readiness for the upcoming months. Whether you're gearing up for outdoor escapades, refreshing your home during spring cleaning, or initiating new endeavors, I'm dedicated to offering custom advice and assistance. Let's embrace the arrival of spring hand in hand, confident that your insurance coverage is primed to safeguard what holds significance to you.

🧍My dedicated team enjoys helping our Good Neighbors and are more than happy to discuss the various insurance options available to you.

⭐As a State Farm office, we have been awarded with several accolades, including: Multiline Trophy recipient, Lifetime President's Club, Ambassador Club Qualifier since 1996, and Crystal Excellence. I am active in the community as a member of the Bayfield and Durango Chamber of Commerce and the Durango Board of Realtors as an Affiliate member. I was also a prior board member of Women's Resource Center. Receiving my B.S. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, I went on to teach high school in Omaha. In addition I worked with IBM in the Office Products Division in Coral Gables Florida before becoming a State Farm agent in Florida in 1980.

My tenure with State Farm also includes Agency in Florida, upper Management in California, and an officer in the Company. This experience allows me to understand the needs of the customer and allows me to have the correct communication with the company.
