I have been an Allstate agent since October 1999 and I have lived in WA since the age of 2 with a couple of years in Australia and Colorado when my parents moved with their jobs. I have lived in Washington with my wife and kids since 1988. The thing I like most about my town is the diversity of people and recreation.

You can't live in Washington without being a Seahawks fan. In fact, I can't figure out how anyone in this country isn't a Seahawks fan. I enjoy hiking and fishing especially on the eastside of the mountains. I enjoy taking visitors to Pike Place Market and watching them throw salmon across the room. There are so many parks to take your kids to that I have no favorites but many of them have evening concerts in the summer time. The Sound is a great place to boat and if you don't have one there are so many options with the multiple vendors available; even taking a local ferry can be an experience. The mountains here make great getaways with hiking or snow related fun.

I am married to my wife, Nadine, for 35 years. We have 3 kids who now have given us 7 grandchildren. I am a Rotarian and have been for the past 10 years. I have held most offices including Past President. Rotary is very involved in helping the local and international community. We have done so many projects that there are too many to list. We have provided wheelchairs to the needy, built baseball fields for kids, set up local food banks, provided backpacks, sponsored sporting event, shopped for toys for and with underprivileged kids, provide annual college scholarships for three local high schools, and many other special projects. I am also a member of Pennies for Puppies. We raise money to support the acquisition, training, and tools needed by the Snohomish County Sheriff K-P program. My hobbies and personal interests are camping, hiking, quading, snowmobiling and taking my grandkids to the park.

Being an Allstate agent gives me the ability to assist many families as they weigh and minimize risk through annual insurance portfolio reviews. I can also help you find the right financial solutions from Allstate to reach your financial goals. My Kirkland office is in Totem Lake just across the street from Kirkland Ford dealership.

Thank you!

I have been a McGinness customer for two years and I am supremely happy with the exceptionally high level of customer service I consistently receive. From taking the time to explain my coverages in terms I can understand to helping me out away after a fender-bender last year, I do feel I am in good hands.



I have been associated with Mike McGinness for the past 15 years and have always had the highest opinion of his expertise, professionalism and care for his clients. I whole heartily recommend Mike and his team as an insurance agency that can be trusted.


Mike and his crew have helped us for many years

! I don't leave many posts on but reading some of the other reviews gave me a good laugh so I had to. I have had many different insurance companies and these guys are by far the best. Good prices and Great service. I know I'm well protected with Mike and his crew because they explain everything to me! They even call ME to review my insurance I have with them.

These other poor reviews are a JOKE! They obviously are upset with themselves and there own choices in life and don't have anything better to do than hide behind a computer and complain about society. If you complain about everything your word is invalid.

Thank you McGinness Insurance for everything you do! You really know how to take care of your Customers.


Could not ask for a better agent!

Mike has been my agent a little over a year now I have nothing but great experiences with him and the wonderful people at his office. He's kind, always welcoming and willing to takes the time to answer any questions I may have. Could not ask for a better agent!


Judgmental, Bad service, unnecessarily expensive!

Used to be have another agent and McGinness and co bought them. As a result I wound up with these guys as my agent. First of all they are fairly unresponsive, multiple emails and calls before I get a call back. One time, I call and a woman Nadine (super fake friendly) tells me that she was just picking up the phone to call me... uh huh!

Anyway, they were charging me almost twice the cost of what Safeco was offering for a totally low end coverage. When asked about it, she was so condescending me trying to "save money" tsk tsk tsk...

Finally went to Secord - they were quick, respectful and saved me over $100 a month!! I now have rental car, roadside assistance etc... So, glad to have changed.


1 Star!

We are a gay couple and we were referred to this agency by one of our dads, who had been a longtime client. We opened a homeowners and auto policy in 2001 and stayed with this company through 2013. All of the policies we had were in one partners name and when we inquired about adding a policy to cover a car under the other partners name there was zero consideration for our longstanding customer account. The policy we were offered was twice as expensive as the one we ultimately found with another company. Then, we bought a used car, and the day we were supposed to pick it up we got a binder through Allstate. One thing led to another and we did not get the car until the next day and by then we had found a much better rate through GMAC. So, we never used the Allstate policy because when we drove the car off the lot after signing for it we had a policy through GMAC. We let Allstate know but now we are being billed $40 for "coverage provided before the policy was cancelled". I called but, since I am not the partner whose name was on everything I was asked "how do you know him?" And told "why don't you have him call us?" Even though this agency had spoken with me more than three times in the past and I was simply trying to correct this billing error. In the end there was nothing but curt replies and pejorative attitude from this local agency. The nationwide company it is affiliated with is expensive - shop elsewhere for the same coverage and better customer service.


Mike and his team are FABULOUS!

Quick and responsive, easy to reach and thorough in making sure you receive every discount.

When my husband and I moved here from Texas a few years ago, we needed to research new insurance options. Mike was able to provide some valuable counsel and in the end, we not only had better protection - but we also saved a lot. While there are many online insurance options these days, they can't come close to replacing the very human face and real insight that Mike and his team provide.
