About Us

It is our goal to establish a relationship with our clients that will be long-lasting, one of trust, mutual confidence and professional friendship. We intend to strive to see that each experience with our office is a positive one. We are committed to making it easy for our clients to do business with us.
It is our first priority to provide our clients and their families the maximum protection for the least expenditure. We will provide the latest insurance advice and counsel available to our agents and staff. Toward this end, we will strive to make the complexities of insurance understandable.
Our clients policies, whether they be Auto, Home, Commercial, Life¹, or any other lines we offer, will be regularly reviewed for adequacy and completeness. We intend to set the standard for service, whether it be updating an existing policy or assisting with a claim.
We are devoted to the enhancement of the community by taking a leadership role and actively participating in community affairs.
This is how we hope to merit the long-term business association of the business we serve.


Jon Kimberling CPCU, CLU, RICP

2018 represents the start of my 5th decade in the insurance business. It is coincidentally my twentieth year helping clients with investment products. Our fully licensed staff and I presently serve over 1400 households of community members. Over time we have expanded our licensing so that we can assist anyone living in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, California and Nevada. We specialize in auto, home, life, commercial and related lines of coverage through Farmers Insurance. We also specialize in health insurance and Medicare insurance products. Lastly, we represent seven brokerages for hard to place coverage, mostly commercial policies. We take pride in the fact that we are highly involved in community affairs as a way to give back to those who have been so kind to us.

Kelly Kimberling Gilder

Licensed Customer Service Representative

Kelly joined the Kimberling Team in 2005. After graduating from Moscow High in 2006, she went on to receive her Bachelors of Science in Business Production Management from the University of Idaho. Before graduating, she was given the opportunity to own her own Farmers Insurance Agency in Rathdrum Idaho. For 5 years, Kelly achieved numerous Farmers achievement awards and grew to love the community and the surrounding areas. The only thing missing was her family. At the end of 2015, Kelly sold her Rathdrum agency and moved back home to Moscow. Just over a year ago, Kelly and her husband Zach welcomed their first child, Jon’s first grandchild, Cooper Michael Gilder. Kelly is in her 13th year with Farmers Insurance and continues to love helping our clients.

Member of Presidents Council

Each year Farmers Insurance selects agents to attend Presidents Council. The number is typically slightly more than 100 out of the roughly 13,500 agents across the country. For the third year in a row, our office is very proud to be one of the agencies selected. Presidents Council is the highest honor an agent can achieve. The criteria is rigorous and places a great deal of emphasis on community involvement. This accomplishment was truly a team effort. Each and every one of our staff members are working hard daily to deliver on our promise of providing the best possible customer service and timely advice.
