About Me

Welcome to Barbara Merten-Dubensky State Farm! From the heart of Birmingham Michigan we have proudly served the Oakland County community since 2005. It has always been our priority to help our customers prepare for what can go wrong and provide support as they recover from the unexpected. My insurance knowledge is extensive as I have owned my own agency since 2000 and also have over 14 years of claim experience. This diverse background has been invaluable in helping our customers settle a claim and get their lives back on track after a disaster. My team and I use this extensive experience by taking a consultative approach with our policyholders. It starts with a Simple Conversation to uncover what is important to them. We help them develop a plan that can be comprised of insurance (Auto, Home, Business etc...) and financial services products (Life Insurance, Work loss coverage, retirement planning), to assist them in protecting their financial well-being. The conversation is free; the decision is theirs. It is always about being a Good Neighbor.

Whether you live in Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Royal Oak, Huntington Woods or any of the surrounding communities we are your neighborhood insurance professional. We can be contacted by phone, on-line and in our office. If you would like visit in person to meet my team there is an added bonus as you can meet the office mascot, Gigi!

About myself: I am a second generation State Farm Agent. I moved my office from Warren to Birmingham in 2005 to be closer to home and serve the community I live in. I am a proud supporter of local events in addition to the Michigan Animal Rescue League and Michigan Humane Society. I am also a member of the Birmingham Bloomfield and Rochester Chambers of Commerce. My hobbies are gardening, hiking, playing tennis, travel and an occasional round of golf.

Carol Laske-Office Manager and Account Representative--Carol has over 40 decades of insurance experience working for several State Farm Agents. She came to my agency in 2007 and I can't imagine a day without her impressive knowledge of insurance that I heavily rely on. She is licensed in all lines of insurance. She is a Michigan native from Fraser. She attended Macomb Community College. In her free time you will likely catch her with a book in her hand. A fun fact about Carol is that she hopes to train a Carin Terrier as a service dog!! What makes Carol such a stand out in her field is her never wavering desire to help our policyholders in anyway!

Thomas Merten--Multi-Line Representative- Tom joined our team in 2019 with 20 years account management experience. His role is business development; customer appointments and marketing. He is a Michigan native and a Central Michigan University alumnus. He enjoys an adventure and has been known to jump out of a perfectly good airplane; he went skydiving in his 20's! He welcomes the opportunity to help customers determine what is most important to them with sound guidance and direction. His attention to details helps our policyholders know their options so they can make the appropriate decision for their insurance needs.
