I have been a State Farm agent since 2012 in Traverse City, MI. Previously I traveled around the world for over 2 decades working as an event coordinator. Now I’m proud to serve the residents of Traverse City, MI and the surrounding areas—including Interlochen, Kingsley, Fife Lake, Suttons Bay, Glen Arbor, Buckley, Grawn, Northport, Honor, Buelah, Frankfort, Kalkaska, Mancelona, Lake Ann, Acme, Williamsburg, Lake Leelanau, Bellaire and Elk Rapids. My agency handles homeowners insurance, renter's insurance, rental dwellings, short-term rentals, auto insurance, life insurance, health insurance, business insurance and more—including financial services.

My agency is known for its friendliness, compassion, FREE COFFEE and attention to detail. We take care of our customers like they’re members of our family, because at the heart, this business is really all about caring. My talented team of professionals shares a passion for helping people manage everyday risks, plan for the future, and protect the things that matter most. We love meeting people and getting to know them and their needs. We work with you to craft a coverage plan that’s just right for you, and when the unexpected happens, we do everything possible to help you recover quickly. We’re committed to the people of this community and their well-being.

As for me personally, I’m originally from Gaylord, MI—which is about 60 miles away from where I now make my living. I’m a graduate of Michigan State University, and I’m married with 3 dogs and 1 cat to look after and love - 3 rescues and an epileptic German Shorthaired Pointer. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, paddle boarding, weekend getaways at the lake, and tackling projects in and around the house.

I also enjoy finding ways to make a positive impact in the community. For the past five years, I have been involved with the Blue Ribbon Run for Prostate Cancer 5K, and I’m also proud to support AC PAW Spay and Neuter program in Traverse City. As a business owner, I consider it both a duty and an honor to support and lift up worthy organizations, and I encourage others to do the same. Everyone can make a difference if they only try.

My team and I love welcoming folks moving to the Traverse City area, and we’re always ready to help you find the right home, property, auto, life, or business insurance for your needs. We look forward to meeting you—please call or drop by for quotes.

My amazing wife and wonderful fur babies and I moved up to Traverse City about five years ago. I grew up vacationing in the area and never imagined I would call this city my home. I was born and raised in Ann Arbor (GO BLUE!) and graduated from the University of Michigan in 2015. What I enjoy most about my job is spending the day with our incredible team and having the opportunity to help those in our community by protecting their everyday risks. When I’m not in the office, you’ll most likely find me on a trail somewhere exploring our amazing state.

Brenda Baker State Farm Agent Team Member

Brenda Baker

Account Representative

Being outside is the place for me, so it’s no secret that summer in Northern Michigan is my favorite! I fill my “off-days” gardening and doing yard work. I love cooking, traveling and camping with my husband. We’ve also been known to dabble in raising farm animals at our Williamsburg homestead (pigs, cows, laying chickens & meat chickens) for our own enjoyment. We have been blessed with 4 great (adult) children and a granddaughter (who just so happens to live next door to us!). I feel so fortunate to work for this State Farm Team that genuinely cares for our customers’ financial and personal well-being.
