Hello and welcome to Barbara Merten-Dubensky State Farm! Since 2005, our office in Birmingham, Michigan, has proudly protected the good people of Oakland County with the help of personalized insurance plans and compassionate customer service. As your agent, I have extensive knowledge of the insurance world, having joined State Farm in 1986 and been an agent since 2000. With our office by your side, you have a seasoned and dedicated team to help you and your loved ones bounce back when things don't go as planned. I’m also proud to say that we’re a WBENC (Womens Business Enterprise National Council) business.

Our office is happy to serve Good Neighbors throughout the county, including those in Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Royal Oak, Pontiac, and Clawson. We want to make things simple and convenient for you as you take care of your future, so we offer a wide selection of insurance options. Let's get you started with an excellent Life, Health, Homeowners, Condo, Renters, Auto, Motorcycle, Business, or Boat Insurance plan today! Or for our returning Good Neighbors, you can instead give us a call or stop by our office if you have questions about your coverage or would like to review your current plan. If you visit us in person, there's an added bonus: you'll meet our office mascot, Gigi!

Want to learn a little more about your local insurance agent? I am a second-generation State Farm Agent. Before I opened my doors in Birmingham in 2005, my office was located in Warren (2000–2005). Having grown up as a "Good Neighbor," I have dedicated my life inside and outside of the office to helping those around me however possible. I love helping our local community as a member of the Birmingham Bloomfield and Rochester Chambers of Commerce. I also proudly support the Michigan Animal Rescue League and Michigan Humane Society. In my spare time, I love gardening, hiking, golfing, and playing tennis.

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.

If you need assistance with Life or Health Insurance, I am your guy! I also handle business development and new business procurement and marketing. I am a Michigan native and completed my studies at Central Michigan University. I am never one to back down from a challenge or an adventure; in fact, I went skydiving at age 25.
