Hi, my name is John Candon and my State Farm Agency is located at 1745 Merrick #5 Ave, Merrick, N.Y. I earned the privilege of being a State Farm Agent, and opened my doors December 1st of 2020. I say "earned" because a State Farm Agency cannot be bought. It is a business that has to be rightfully earned and requires a strong passion for helping others. Being a third generation State Farm Agent, this passion is something that was and still is very present in my household. Both my Grandfather(Marty O'Kane) and father(Steve Candon) became State Farm Agents because they love helping others and improving their community. Because of them, I too share these values.

I am lucky to represent a company that mirrors my beliefs in ethics, family, community, and improvement.

If you reside in / have property and/or a business in New York please stop in, call in, or email us. We are here for you!
