Centurion Insurance Services
John and Virginia Chatwin
Virginia and John Chatwin started an Allstate insurance agency in 1994, and it quickly grew to be one of the largest in the state of Nevada. Noticing a lack of quoting competition and the disadvantages of being captive to a single carrier, Virginia branched out to develop an independent insurance agency, Centurion Insurance Services.
Virginia enjoys assisting customers in their pursuit of insurance protection. She particularly finds joy in saving her customers money! To her, customer care is very important.
The Chatwin family is also heavily involved in their local community. A few years back John decided to purchase a firetruck, which prompted him and his son-in-law to fly to Pennsylvania and drive it back to Nevada. Since then, the firetruck has been used in local parades and was even the naming inspiration for the couple’s grandson, Mack.
Virginia loves to garden, sew, decorate, and even tackle remodeling projects. John's great love is baseball, as he played collegiately. He loves watching the LA Dodgers! John and Virginia believe spending time with their family is simply the best!
