Steven Papola has always wanted to serve the community. He was a police officer and a part-time insurance agent, who ran a successful insurance business until the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2011. He was forced to suspend his insurance activities when he was assigned to help assist with the recovery efforts. He volunteered as a Cobra Team Member and was assigned to the Anti-Terrorist Section of the Brooklyn North Task Force.

He later moved to Florida and continued to serve the community as a police officer. Steve served with the Pinellas County Schools Police and provided Security Services for the Pinellas County Board of Education. Eventually, he became a deputy sheriff with the Pasco County Sheriff’s office.

Steve was an Allstate agent from 1995-1998 before going out on his own. He has returned to Allstate insurance company as an agent in the newly opened office in Lutz. He views insurance as a natural extension of serving and protecting the public.

“A customer is a customer, whether you are wearing a uniform serving them in one capacity or wearing a suit and serving them in another capacity,” said Steve.

His agency offers all facets of insurance including homeowners, property and flood insurance for both individuals and businesses, policies for automobile, boat, motorcycle, and even off-road vehicles. Life insurance, annuities and retirement plans are covered as well. With over 10 years of experience in the insurance industry, he is able to help you in all your needs to ensure you are protected.
