Abelardo Ramirez Meda / Agency Owner

McAllen Team

 

I have been working in the insurance industry for the past 25 years. Protecting the Rio
Grande Valley families is my passion and my commitment. As Hispanics, we work really
hard to bring the best to our families.


I grew up in Mexico and California, but made the Rio Grande Valley my home in 2009
looking for a better opportunity for my family. During my time here, I have met great
people in this community and now I feel like I am a part of it but mostly importantly
committed to protecting it. When I’m not running my agency, I love riding my motorcycle
across the country and sailing when I have a chance. I also enjoy spending most of my
fee time with my family. Also, I am a member of the Hidalgo Lions Club and Pharr
Rotary Club.

Guillermo Alonso Bautista
Manager

I have been working with Ramirez-Meda for the last 5 years, helping the Rio Grande Valley families with their Auto, Home and Life insurance. During my time here, I have noticed that many people in the Rio Grande Valley have misconceptions and are misinformed about insurance. So, I feel passionate about being able to educate them better and offer them the protection they deserve, while also changing their perspective on insurance!

The most exciting thing about my work it is that every day we learn something new.  I am very passionate about my contribution to growing this agency on a daily basis.

I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico, and I grew up in McAllen, Texas. I have an Associates in Accounting. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my daughter, whether we are playing at the park or grabbing an ice cream. My guilty pleasure is tempting my coworkers to eat chocolates with me after lunch.

I have been in the insurance industry for over a year now! I love helping people meet their insurance needs but most importantly helping them understand the coverages they have so whenever they face an unfortunate event they know exactly what to do.

Growing up in McAllen and now working here has instilled in the importance of helping my community and neighbors. On the weekends, I enjoy spending time with my family. They are the most important thing in my life!

Carlos Cantu
Licensed Insurance Representative

When I started in the insurance industry, I handled the marketing aspect, then I moved up to being a P&C sales producer. Now, I am both P&C and L&H Producer. What I find most exciting about my work is that it is a competition with yourself to produce as much as possible, not only for the money, but for the advancement in the industry and as a salesperson in general.

Erika Valdez
Service Representative

Before I started in the insurance industry, I worked for a bank. Now that I’m here at Ramirez-Meda Agencies, I’ve been able to combine both experiences and that has given me the ability to help customers with all their needs. Helping people is my passion and I especially enjoy assisting them with renewals and customer service needs.

I grew up in Miguel Aleman, Mexico, but nine years ago I moved to Rio Grande City. You can usually find me creating memories around family and friends. I also like to dedicate my free time decorating. My guilty pleasure is singing out loud in the office.

Customer service

On a daily basis I speak to costumers about whether there are any changes to their policies and make sure they are speaking to the right agent. What excites me most about my work is that every single day I am learning something new that has to do with the company. I think this is so because I learn that insurance is involved in everything. What I really enjoy is talking to a customer and helping as much I can and learning every single day something new.

Israel Salinas
Account Representative

 I have worked with adjusters and am well versed in walking you through your claim. I get to help customers get the best coverage available and make sure they have every discount they qualify for.  I love talking to people and treating them as if they were my own family.

Raised in Brownsville Tx, I am very familiar with the Valley and their needs. I have always worked in customer service and know what’s expected since 2007. During my free time, you can catch me in the gym but my kids seem to like the movies and parks more! I like video games but also consider myself a great dancer; it’s a strange combination but I’m an all-around kind of guy!
