Our Mission

“Treat everyone like family”

The mission of John E. Peakes Insurance Agency is to treat everyone as family, utilize our experience and teamwork to provide extraordinary customer service, understand our client’s insurance needs, provide our clients with customized insurance packages, and assist families with protecting their personal assets while maintaining integrity, loyalty, trust, and commitment.

Our Company

John E. Peakes Insurance Agency is a family-owned business started in Ventura, California, in 1969 by John E. Peakes Sr. Then, in 1993, we opened our second location in Lancaster. In 2001 John E. Peakes Jr. took over the family business, opening two more locations in California, allowing our agents to serve the insurance needs of individuals, families, and businesses up and down the West Coast.

Our Company

We work for you

As an independent, locally-owned insurance agency, we do not work for one specific insurance company. Instead we represent over 30 different insurance companies allowing us to match you, the client, with the company that best suits your coverage, pricing and service needs. At each renewal, we shop your rate with these trusted companies, so that we are positive you are always getting the most affordable rate. Our team of agents is here as your insurance advocate, which means you are never left on your own.


Our Community

John E. Peakes Insurance Agency is committed to our community and its members. We value our partnership with local businesses and show our support through our Partners Program. In addition, we have supported local charities, such as The Ventura County Humane Society and The Lustgarten Foundation, and participated in and sponsored fundraising events.
