Hello, I am Ellis Ferguson, owner of Insurance by Design, LLC.
I have a long and deep history here in the Northern Nevada region and covers real-estate, mortgage, and financial industries. I began my career as a residential real estate broker here in Reno NV in 1989. As my knowledge base grew I transitioned and entered the commercial real estate arena as a leasing and sales agent with Grubb and Ellis and then as a short stint as a commercial property manager with the firm of Gaston and Wilkerson.
From there I obtained my mortgage lending license and transitioned into the mortgage industry representing some of the biggest firms like Chase Mortgage, Nevada State Bank and Wells Fargo for over 17 years.
Looking for a change of pace I entered the insurance field by obtaining my life and health licenses and began working as an account manager in the employee benefits field working with local businesses in the placement and implementation of company health and ancillary insurance plans.
Today I am excited to bring all of this past experience and knowledge together in assisting individuals, families and business owners obtain the insurance policies to cover and protect their assets and lifestyle. I hope to become a trusted resource for my clients by providing the highest level of attention, insight and experience in the quoting and placing the appropriate insurance policies and coverages to meet the unique challenges and circumstances of each and every client.
As a native Nevadan, I enjoy all the great activities our area provides. In my spare time I enjoy spending time in the outdoor area’s skiing, road and mountain biking all the great terrain that surrounds the northern Nevada area. I am an active member in the local Elks Club and am married to my wife Christina of 32 years and have two daughters Kathleen and Chloe. Although our daughters grown and have flown the coop, we are now the proud parents of our two four legged/ furry family members Milo and Molly.
I look forward to assisting you and please call or e-mail me today and let me know how I can help!
