Meet the Agent
Ari Janjikian is a University of Maryland, College Park graduate. During the summer after his junior year, he held a prestigious internship at the United States Senate under Senator Sabranes with the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. Here is where his interest in law and regulation began. While at UMD, he also co-founded and was the Vice President of the Armenian Society Organization.
He began his career as a financial advisor with Ameriprise Financial where he obtained his Series 7, 63 and Life and Health Insurance state licensing. As a financial advisor, he helped clients develop personalized financial solutions to help them meet their various financial goals such as retirement, college planning and other general investments. However, he found that his favorite area of support was geared towards making sure families were properly protected for life’s uncertainties. As his passion for insurance grew, he realized that this was the direction in which he wanted to take his career.
After leaving Ameriprise Financial to follow his passion, he landed a position as a fully licensed sales producer for one of the country’s biggest and most well-known insurance companies, Allstate Insurance. He was fortunate to be mentored by a veteran agent of Allstate in the DC Metro area and it is here where he learned the Property and Casualty business. However, he felt the limitations of working for a captive insurance company and believed that clients deserved to have options when protecting their families.
In 2013, Ari started MyInsurance, LLC, an independent insurance agency. As an independent insurance agent, Ari is able to ensure that no client need to sacrifice coverage for price. He is able to work with various insurance carriers to make sure clients are placed with whatever company meets their needs within whatever price range is most comfortable to them.
As Ari works diligently to grow his business into a successful agency, he is also devoted to his family. He has a wonderful wife, Kerstin, and, in 2012, they were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Gabriel. With another son on the way, Ari spends his free time enjoying his new family and great friends. He is also a hometown sports nut and follows the Washington Capitals very closely. His first choice of exercise is also playing hockey as he participates in recreational leagues year round.
Additionally, Ari is a professional DJ and has djed hundreds of events.
In working with MyInsurance, LLC, you will find an agent that is dedicated to his clients and who understands the importance of protecting what is most valuable to you.
