The founder of Ives Insurance Services, Dick Ives, was a trail blazer who set out to create his own legacy. He began working for a traditional agency that wrote only one insurance product. Dick had the desire to offer more to individuals as he realized that not every situation can be narrowed down into strict parameters.


He felt that insurance should fit the needs of the clients, not limit them.  

Dick was compelled to seize the opportunity of freedom to help his clients and their unique needs. This led him to venture out in 1959 and establish Ives Insurance Services in his garage in Point Loma, San Diego. 

Dick’s daughter, Sharon Ives, had been inspired by her father’s tenacity and joined Ives in 1983. Sharon, also a leader, sought out more opportunity to be of further assistance to our clients and initiated the commercial insurance branch of the agency.


Since 1985, this division has grown exponentially.

With a commitment to building lasting relationships with clients, we are attentive to your requests. We realize several needs for our clients and are dedicated to providing comprehensive insurance programs tailored to you.

Being a local San Diego business, we have found that what sets us apart, is that we thoroughly understand your growing business’s ever-changing needs. Our service is more than transactional, and we realize that we are protecting your company’s legacy, your story.

Our headquarters may have moved from the Ives garage, but our core values of celebrating the diverse needs of people has never wavered. Since the beginning, we have always put the clients in the center of everything we do. The Ives reputation of consistent, honest and responsive service is reflected in our long-term relationships with local businesses, individuals and families.

Since 1989, Sharon took over Ives Insurance and the agency propelled even further from what her father originated. Among expanding our product offerings, recruiting passionate and knowledgeable agents, becoming admitted with over 100 top rated insurance companies, and creating a modern headquarters in Liberty Station--the Ives legacy continues, and we are here to protect yours.
