Welcome to Wendy Ruffin-Barnes State Farm Insurance! We love being your local insurance agency in Ahoskie, and we proudly serve the entire state of North Carolina and Virginia! Whether you live in Murfreesboro, Hertford, Gates, Northampton and Bertie Counties, or any of the surrounding areas, we are happy to help with your insurance needs!

My dedicated team of professionals and I are eager to provide insurance and financial services to all of our Good Neighbors. We understand that no two families or individuals are alike, which is why we take the time to personalize an insurance plan based upon your own individual needs. If you have questions about your Auto, Homeowners, or Renters or Condo Insurance, give us a call! We can also assist with both Life and Health Insurance. With winter in full swing, reach out to us for free quotes on your Boat or Motorcycle Insurance! We also want to make sure our community is prepared for the heavy rains and high winds that are likely to come over ahead of the upcoming hurricane season. Be sure to pull your cars into your garages to prevent any damage that may come! And don’t worry about your four-legged friends, we offer Pet Insurance as well!

Being a Small Business ourselves, my team and I are passionate about connecting with other fellow Small Business owners whenever we can. Give our team a call to chat about the benefits of Business Insurance over a cup of coffee or tea! And if you are new or moving to the area, my team is also experienced with out-of-state transfers and relocations to the state of North Carolina! We’d love to provide you and your loved ones a seamless transition to your new home.

I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and have been a State Farm Insurance Agent since 1991. During my tenure with State Farm, I have been a Chairman's Circle qualifier as well as an Ambassador traveler for more than 20 years. In the Ahoskie community, I am active in numerous organizations, and I have served on the Board of Roanoke Chowan Community College for more than 20 years as a Trustee. I am also active with the Ahoskie Chamber of Commerce and serve on Economic Development Committee of 100.
