Local Allstate Agent: Meet Barry F. Melvin

I’ve lived in Chester my entire life. With its friendly, small-town feel and great schools, Chester is truly the best in every way — close to beaches, close to mountains and within driving distance of our nation’s capital. Since graduating from nearby Virginia Commonwealth University in 1980 and becoming an Allstate agent, I’ve made it my mission to help people here protect what is most important in their lives.

When I’m not working, you can find me playing trumpet in the Colonial Heights Baptist Church orchestra, watching basketball and football games, playing golf and spending time with my wife, Linda, our two daughters, Tracey and Whitney, and my grandson, Daniel.

Growing up, my parents emphasized to me and my twin brother the importance of treating others the way we would wish to be treated. I’m an agent because I enjoy helping people, and my team and I do our best to answer customers’ questions promptly. You’ll find that my team and I friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

Years ago, I learned the importance of never putting anything off. I agreed to meet with a couple one Friday night, as they wanted to purchase a life insurance policy. I’m thankful I did as that policy quickly became very important — the woman tragically lost her husband the following day. To this day, I still have the wife insured. This experience reminds me of the impact of my work on customers’ lives.
