In 2016 Fairfield Waverly Insurance merged with Hodgson and Associates to become Western Insurance Associates. This merger allowed Western Insurance to open a new Spokane, WA location and double the number of licensed agents on their team. Drawing from the small town, personable experience provided by Fairfield Waverly Insurance and the energy of Hodgson and Associates, a close connection with the customers and communities they serve has quickly become Western Insurance Associates’ modus operandi.
