LIHU‘E — Saturday marked the 10th anniversary for Mike Martinez Insurance and Financial Services, and the opening of new offices for Martinez at the Park Plaza 1 building located behind the HMSA Building in Lihu‘e.
“We had a better rate for this location,” said Martinez, who is a listed agent with State Farm Insurance. “The space is smaller at 654 square feet compared to the one thousand square feet in our other office. But the location is ideal, the layout is more efficient, and the building tenants are all nice.”
A steady stream of well-wishers, including fellow listed State Farm Insurance agents, flowed through the new offices, and to properly adhere to the pandemic health and safety guidelines, the celebration overflowed into the building’s common lobby as well as occasionally overflowing into the tent set up in the parking lot.
“Thirty-eight years,” Martinez said. “Between my wife Wendy and myself, customers have the benefit of 38 years of experience in the business.”
He said one of the benefits of the new location they share with the offices of the Kaua‘i United Way, is they are each able to have their own individual offices.
“We each have our own space where we can lay out things we like,” Mike said. “Wendy even went so far as to put up items from her favorite artist. She could never do that before. She’s happy.”
In addition to the individual offices, there is room for a client’s waiting area and receptionist.
Mike Martinez Insurance and Financial Services is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. Saturday by appointment only.
