About Us

East County Insurance Agency, Inc.
East County Insurance Agency, Inc. is located in Antioch, CA and Brentwood, CA. It serves a majority of Contra Costa County. It provides all types of insurance for both commercial and personal lines of business and represents many fine insurance companies.

The agency was started back in 1985 as John Slatten Insurance after its founder and owner, John Slatten. As the agency grew, so did the need for its own identity. In 1992, the agency name was changed to East County Insurance Agency, Inc. and has since took on a life of its own. The agency has over 40 years of experience dealing with the insurance market and continues to grow rapidly. In 2005, the agency opened a second location in Brentwood, CA.

Unlike other agencies, all aspects of an insurance policy are handled in the local office at East County. We are committed to customer service!
