Matt Kalla / State Farm Insurance
When interviewing Matt, I wanted to know what his company offered. It was too easy for him to name off life, car, home, health, and rent insurance as some of the policies his company can underwrite. But what mattered most wasn't the different types of insurance he could offer, it was ALL ABOUT THE CLIENT! Client conversations and relationships really excite Matt, and the ability to fit their needs with a suitable product that truly protects them. He sincerely wants to help people live confidently, and if an accident were to happen, he would be there during those hard times. For example, when the unfortunate accidents do occur, he personally visits his clients to see first how they are doing emotionally... secondly, it's to take care of their damaged possessions. This isn't me pitching Matt Kalla Insurance, or drinking the Kool-Aid, the genuine feeling I got when interviewing Matt was trustworthiness. We're honored to have Matt a part of the PLA, and to have him in our community making a significant difference in people's lives.
If one were to Google search 'trustworthy', Matt Kalla's image would likely pop up first... and to clarify, it would not be under the advertising section. Matt is an Insurance Agent with State Farm Insurance Agency located on Voltaire Street near Catalina Boulevard. It is a great looking office, with its brand new red awning, signage, and window decal work. Matt took over the business from his father, and has been working at that office since 1990, shortly after he graduated from Cal Poly San Louis Obispo. Back in those days, in order to work for State Farm, you had to be a college graduate. Since growing up in San Diego, going to college was a great reason to get away anyway, so he didn't mind one bit. Matt is deeply involved in the Point Loma community and is a part of various groups including the Business Improvement District, Chamber of Commerce, OBMA, Little League, and of course, he's a member of the Point Loma Association. Matt currently lives in Point Loma, and is married with 3 beautiful children.
