In 1926, Quisenberry Insurance agency began when Russell and Myrtle Quisenberry arrived here from Chicago and settled in the North Hollywood area. The Quisenberrys opened a small insurance agency on Lankershim Blvd.

Russell became very active in the North Hollywood community believing that a strong business has strong ties to the community. Russell and Myrtle Quisenberry were true humanitarians; they helped build the North Hollywood community, participating heavily in the local Chamber, St. Joseph’s Hospital, The East Valley YMCA, Rotary and North Hollywood’s local police and fire Departments. Winner of the Fernando Award in 1960, Russell’s civic achievements and his commitment to his community set a reputation for excellence that Quisenberry Insurance strives to continue today.

On October 27, 1978, after three years of managing Quisenberry Insurance, Kathy Banks and her husband, Kurt Banks, purchased the agency. The business continued to grow and thrive with a heavy emphasis on selling auto, home and small business insurance. The Banks family, also residents of the North Hollywood area, was able to maintain the strong business and community traditions initiated by the Quisenberrys. The Banks family had long been a fixture in the North Hollywood community; Kurt, a graduate of local schools, St. Charles and Notre Dame High School and Kathy, a graduate of Woodbury College were able to continue the same commitment to the community and continue relationships with the local Chamber, Rotary, and East Valley YMCA.

In 2003, Kendra Banks, daughter of Kurt and Kathy Banks, officially joined the Quisenberry Insurance staff. A graduate of the University of San Francisco, Kendra brings much talent with her. Practically born into the business, her goal is to continue the Quisenberry Tradition of excellence, while striving to meet the needs of clients in a digital, information age. Kendra has assumed a management role as the Executive Director and leads a team of insurance professionals standing by to assist you.

Quisenberry is now located in the beautiful Magnolia Park section of Burbank, CA. We continue to support our roots in the North Hollywood area, but are able to infuse our new community as well by supporting John Burroughs High School, the Burbank Chamber of Commerce and the Magnolia Park Partnership.
