Richard Ames: Allstate Insurance

Local Allstate Agent: Meet Richard Ames

I began my insurance career in 1987 and opened my Arcadia agency in 1988. I graduated from DeSoto County High School and married Barbara, a fifth-generation DeSoto County resident, in 1966. We have two sons, Richard, who works at the agency, and Andrew, a partner at a local CPA firm, along with five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. We enjoy raising our family here. Some of our favorite places are Morgan Park, with its several miles of hiking, running or cycling trails, and the Peace River, which is great for canoeing and kayaking. I’m a bicyclist, car racing fan and local sports enthusiast.


Our agency is proud to support this community. We’re a member of the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce. We’ve volunteered to qualify for Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants for the DeSoto County Education Foundation and the Arcadia Youth Rodeo. Rebeca Carrillo of our team received a Volunteer of the Year award for her work with DeSoto County Schools. Richard was also active with the Reality Ranch rodeo series. We supported customers through two hurricanes – Charlie in 2004 and Irma in 2017. I serve as a deacon working with youth ministry and greeter ministry at Calvary Baptist Church. I also served 13 years with Florida’s National Guard.


Our agency is like a family. Millie and Rebeca have been at the agency for more than 20 years. We can assist you with your insurance needs in English or Spanish. Please call or stop by. We are located one block east of DeSoto County Courthouse on Oak Street.
