There’s a new Farmers Insurance Agency in town at 1910 Deacon St. and it’s owned by Los Alamos native Patrick Metzger. Metzger, 31, is the son of longtime Realtor Jeannette Metzger Thorp with Prudential and Tom Metzger, who co-owned Metzger businesses in town for many years before dying of heart disease in 2001.“I’ve always been in family business growing up and have always had an entrepreneurial spirit,” Metzger said during an interview Thursday. “I don’t think there is anything better than being a business owner.”Metzger decided to branch out on his own and was contacted by the district manager of Farmers Insurance about opening an agency here. “I had placed my resume on monster.com and he knew of my business experience and knowledge of the town, and the history of my family, and kept contacting me.”The idea of owning an insurance company appealed to Metzger, he said, because it allows him to protect people’s families and their assets and to be there for them when something bad happens. “I think in being born and raised here I have a longtime love of Los Alamos and its people,” he said.
