I’ve always had the desire to help people and being a professional in the insurance industry has given me the opportunity to do that each and every day. I am incredibly grateful to have the ability to make a difference in the lives of our policyholders. I have been a part of the Brian Downes, State Farm Insurance family for over 20 years and I can honestly say, the years have gone by quickly!

I can assist you, your family members, friends and business associates in selecting the Auto, Home, Renter’s, Condo, Life, Health and Small Business insurance that fits within your budget and addresses your needs. Having 20 years of experience and a depth of knowledge of the insurance industry, I truly understand the needs of small business owners. Protecting what you have worked so hard for is extremely important.

I was born and raised right here in Flushing, Queens, NY, so this community is my hometown! I attended St. John’s University and graduated with a degree in Business Management. Currently, I reside on Long Island with my husband, two handsome sons who are growing up way too fast and my “third child”, a German Shephard named Allie. To say that my family is my world is an understatement. I treasure every moment that I am blessed to spend with them! I enjoy exercising daily, reading, having a good laugh and spending time traveling with family and friends. My favorite place to be is at the beach. It’s my “happy place” where I find peace, serenity and joy.

Your time is valuable and your family is a precious gift. I am dedicated to work with you in a way that makes sense based upon your needs while fulfilling my duty as your insurance professional. If you were to ask my customers, they would say they love doing business with me because I am knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to their needs. I am looking forward to welcoming you to our State Farm family. Please stop by to meet our team here at Brian Downes, State Farm Insurance!

Aaron Anglin

It is my pleasure to meet you. As a fellow resident of the Flushing, Queens community, I understand the concerns and needs of you, our neighbors and am looking forward to delivering an exceptional customer experience. That begins by building strong relationships with our policyholders, so please allow me to share a little about myself.

Spending time with my family including my wife Holly, our son Elijah and our feline family member, our cat Layla brings me a tremendous amount of joy. I am grateful to be so incredibly blessed. Being of service to others has always been an important part of my character. I had long desired to earn the title of United States Marine and proudly, I accomplished this goal on April 3, 1998. Enjoying my favorite sports teams battle it out on the field, the baseball diamond or the court are some of my favorite pastimes. You can always find me rooting for my squads whether I am at home or enjoying a game in person. So for all of you NY Mets and NY Knick fans, I’m always “game” to talk about last nights scores and plays of the game! Traveling is also a passion of mine, some of my favorite places to visit are Miami, Cape Cod, Washington State, VA Beach and Europe.

My customers love doing business with me because they say I have a pleasant, calming voice and I’m always willing to assist them with policy questions or concerns. They love to do business with someone who shares the special bond of being a fellow Queens, NY resident. We live here and raise our families here, so it’s important to treat one another well. My policyholders all know how much I enjoy reminiscing about our neighborhood’s past and sharing memories of what it was like growing up here back “in the day”.

I am extremely proud to be a part of the small business community in Flushing, Queens serving our policyholders, friends, fellow business owners and neighbors. I am happy to welcome you to our State Farm Family and am looking forward to providing and servicing all of your insurance needs for many years to come!
