Meet your local insurance experts.
Outstanding service starts with an outstanding team. Meet the professionals behind House of Insurance.
I have been working in the insurance industry since 1982. I am a founder of House of Insurance which was established January 1984. I have always practiced the philosophy of treating my clients in the way I personally want to be treated.
I have been educated through the Certified Insurance (CIC) program which is aimed at education insurance professionals to a higher degree of understanding of Insurance contracts. This program has given me a greater ability to evaluate and
serve my clients’ needs.
I enjoy the horse world when I am not in the office. Going to horse shows and having 4 horses of my own allows me to relax in a positive, healthy way. They are the loves of my life, but don’t get me started!!
My background is in the field of Insurance and financial services. In 1982 I started my own Insurance agency under the name of James Paz Insurance Services in Springfield, Oregon. I built that business through hard work and good service, personal attention to client needs and offering great products at affordable prices.
I sold the agency in 2007 and took a few years off only to return to the insurance field in 2010 when I went to work with House of Insurance and Susan Beebe.
I like working with Susan as she treats clients in a way that I would, like family.
I enjoy fishing , camping, woodworking, family, giving back to the community by delivering Meal’s on Wheel’s once a week and serving on the Board of Directors for Head Start of Lane County. I am active in causes that help children with disabilities as I have an Autistic grandson that I adore.

When he is not helping people with their insurance needs you can find Steve on the road or in the mountains riding his bike or spending quality time with his two dogs ( Cali and Bunker).
