Welcome to Purves and Associates Insurance Agency

Your California insurance agency of choice.

The story begins in 1972 when George Purves took his first insurance Agency job at Brinley’s Real Estate and Insurance in Davis, CA. It was common at the time for the real estate and insurance business to be combined, but Mr. Brinley’s primary focus was on the real estate side. Mr. Brinley was a Davis institution, known for his generosity and integrity, and he mentored George in the business. Eventually, Mr. Brinley sold the insurance arm of the business to George Purves who joined his practice with Stehli & Cervelli, creating the powerhouse Stehli, Purves & Cervelli Independent Insurance Agency of Davis. The agency sold insurance to local businesses and farms as well as home and auto insurance to families in Davis and the surrounding areas.

Jerry Cervelli retired in the 1980s and in the early 1990s so did Al Stehli, at which time Purves Insurance partnered with McGee & Thielen Insurance in Sacramento, CA. McGee, Thielen & Purves operated together until 2001 when George and son Scott, who had joined the firm in 1996, returned to Davis and re-established Purves & Associates Insurance Agency of Davis. By this time the business had expanded to include all lines of insurance coverage for businesses, including group benefits plans for employees. Purves also became the official partner of Lyon Real Estate in 2001, offering homeowners and auto insurance to the thousands of home buyers who work with Lyon. Chris Purves, the last of George’s children, joined the firm in 2003 with a focus on commercial insurance risks.

Purves Insurance has continued to grow and now serves personal and business clients throughout the Sacramento Valley and Foothills. We believe strongly in the values of honesty and integrity that were championed by Mr. Brinley and George Purves in our beginning, and that our success is entirely dependent on providing our clients with the right insurance coverage and honest, professional advice.
