Kathy Fontana, owner of Kathleen Fontana Agency, has moved the business from 624 W. Hastings, on Spokane’s North Side, to a new building three miles away at 9708 N. Nevada, where the agency has leased 350 square feet of office space.
Fontana is an independent insurance agent for Farmers Insurance Group. She specializes in selling multiple lines of insurance, including property, casualty, life, health, and commercial, she says. Before becoming an independent insurance agent, she was a district manager with Farmers Insurance.
Two other part-time employees work at the agency, and she says she plans to hire a full-time employee in the next few months.
Dick Edwards and Kevin Edwards, of Spokane-based Hawkins Edwards Inc., handled the lease.
