About Me

I am a life-long California resident and multi-office State Farm agent. After joining the State Farm family in 2008, I opened my first agency in Santa Cruz, CA the following year and, in August of 2020, opened my second agency in Salinas, CA. We proudly serve the residents of Santa Cruz, Salinas, Watsonville, Carmel, and Monterey. We can assist you with homeowners insurance, renters insurance, auto insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and more—including financial services, motorcycle insurance, and boat insurance.

The most rewarding part of being a State Farm agent is helping our customers truly understand their insurance needs. Communication is key—which is why our agency is known for its approachable, inviting, and engaging office culture. We take the time to relate to our customers one-on-one so that we can break down complex concepts into digestible information. My dedicated, caring team will sit down with you and help you plan for your future, protect what matters most, and realize your dreams. Whether you need auto, home, or life insurance, we’re here to build an insurance plan that fits your life.

Outside the office, I value spending time with family. I am a devoted husband and father to my wonderful wife and three kids (two sons and one daughter). My wife and I have known each other since childhood. Now, decades later, we are the perfect homebodies: we enjoy gardening and lounging in our backyard. In my leisure time, I enjoy training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and traveling to new corners of the world.

My California roots run deep. I am a Palma Alumni and graduate from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Community is especially important to me. My team and I volunteer with several local organizations focused on feeding the homeless and empowering women. I am also particularly involved in my kids’ school.

My Santa Cruz office is right on the water—give us a visit or stop by our Salinas office! My agency is here to help with auto insurance, home insurance, renters insurance, small business insurance, life insurance, motorcycle insurance, boat insurance, and financial services. I hope we get the opportunity to not just take care of your insurance needs but to also build a relationship and welcome you to our Chris Buich State Farm family. Please call or stop by for a free quote.
