Jo Barsh started her career in Orlando at a local State Farm Agency. Where she ran that Agency for more than 10 years helping clients with their Insurance and Financial needs. Her passion is doing what is right for her clients making sure they are fully covered in all areas of their life.
Two years ago she was given the opportunity to have her own State Farm Agency in Ocoee, FL located in Publix Shopping Center at Fountains West on West Rd. She services clients primarily in West Orange area, Ocoee, Winter Garden, Apopka, Oakland, Windermere and Orlando. She also has clients all over the State of Florida due to her relentless approach of being there to help her clients whether in person on the phone or in her office.
Jo is old school and still makes house calls. There are a lot of individuals that can’t get out of where they live due to illness or disabilities. She feels she wants to make her clients feel comfortable and if that means going to their home for what ever the reason, then she is there.
She is dedicated to always helping people wherever she can even outside of work, whether going to their house and helping them with a projects like repairing something, painting or building something. She feels giving back is always the right thing to do.
She grew up very poor and when she was growing up there were people who helped her family. She is involved in giving back with her local church Spring of Life United Methodist Church and also gives her time to the Montverde United Methodist Church mission of feeding the homeless.
Prior to moving to the Orlando, she was born just north of Orlando in Jacksonville where she worked at Southeast Toyota Distributors for 22 years. Her husband Jerry Barsh who at that time worked for State Farm at their Regional Office in Jacksonville and was closing down his position and was moving it to Winter Haven, Florida, now they have made Ocoee their home.
Jo’s years of experience has given her the knowledge and expertise to help her clients with any type of insurance or financial need they may have whether it is Auto, Home, Life, Health, Banking and Mortgage and Retirement and College Savings needs they may have.
