Our History

The head of our company, David Sumner, graduated from Bakersfield College with a two-year Liberal Arts degree in 1991. He then transferred to the University of South Dakota with a swimming scholarship. In 1994, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and began his insurance career working for MassMutual as a life insurance agent.

In 1996, David sold medical insurance for a small one-man office in Bakersfield, then a small family-owned insurance agency in 1997. He also got his property and casualty insurance license. David’s family then opened California Canyon Insurance Agency in 2007.

Since our establishment, our company has seen a steady growth of new customers. We have added two customer service lines to represent our team and help us handle our day-to-day workload. Our agents are primarily licensed in California but we also have licenses in about 13 other states since some of our clients have assets in those states.

More About David

David has been married for more than 10 years and has a young daughter. In this changing world, his focus is on his family, his clients, and his associates. He also aims to instill Christian values in his daughter.

Personal Insurance

Our agency provides insurance for the future of your life, home, and automobile. Whether you are getting your first car, a new home, or planning a family, we will recommend the coverage that best utilizes and protects your assets.

What events could jeopardize your family’s finances? What could threaten your assets or your earning ability? How have you prepared to handle these events if they should occur?

Let our team help you answer these questions and develop a personal insurance plan to protect the people you care about and give you peace of mind.

Home Insurance

We understand that you have worked hard to make your house a home. Your home probably represents a large share of your financial wealth. To protect your investment, you should get homeowners insurance protection at the best value possible.

Homeownership comes with many responsibilities and expenses. Insurance is one expense that is just as necessary as taxes and the cost of general upkeep and repairs. The cost of your homeowners insurance will vary according to your home’s features and location. By improving your home’s safety features, you save more in the long run. 

Save Money by Reducing the Cost of Your Homeowners Insurance!

  • Increase Your Deductible
    • By taking on more risks through a higher deductible, you can reduce the amount of premium you pay.
  • Buy It Together
    • Purchasing your automobile and homeowners coverage from us qualifies you for a multi-policy discount.
  • Disaster-Proof Your Home
    • Take the necessary precautions to protect your home against common natural disasters in your area. These include tornadoes, hurricanes, or earthquakes.
  • Buildings Only
    • Any land or property around your house should not be included when assessing your home’s value and the amount of insurance needed.
      You should insure nothing more than the full cost to rebuild your home.
  • Add Safety Features
    • Smoke detectors, burglar alarms, and deadbolt locks can save lives. They can also save you premium dollars.
      Sprinkler systems and high-end security systems can save you even more money.
  • Appraise Your Possessions
    • Have your valuables appraised regularly to make sure that your coverage amounts reflect the worth of your belongings accurately.
  • Don’t Get Comfortable
    • When performing your own annual financial review, remember to examine whether your current coverage is up to date.
      Your agent will be glad to help you with this process.
  • Buy Wisely
    • If you are in the market for a new house, consider its features and how it may affect your insurance costs.
      Homes with newer plumbing, electrical, and heating systems can help you save money on possible repairs.
      Being in a community with a professional fire department or having a house close to a fire hydrant could also mean you’ll pay less.
