About Gary Paulson

Insurance Background

Gary started as an insurance agent in 1988 as an Allstate agent inside the Kennewick Sears store. He and his now-retired business partner started Mid-Columbia Insurance in October 1995.

When the agency started in 1995, being high-tech meant we had laptops with  20 megabyte (yes megabyte) hard drives and a pager on your hip. Now we are inundated with ways to incorporate technology into our agencies..

5 Star Review
Mid-Columbia insurance did everything in their expertise to get me the best quotes from the best insurance companies around, even with my bad driving record Paul was able to get me a quote which was well with in my budget. Thank you so much Paul.

5 Star Review
I was shopping around for a couple of months trying to find insurance and Mid-Columbia was the best rate out there for the new car I have with my career and being able to afford my car and insurance. I would recommend them to all my family and friends. Once my daughter starts driving and working I’m having her go through Mid Columbia Insurance
