Our Mission


Working with Families, Businesses, and Organizations to identify and manage risk and opportunity.

Our Vision


First, we are an independent, family owned group of businesses that seek to be ‘leading edge’ in providing programs and services that assist our clients in their journey to success. Our businesses will continue to evolve over time predicated on the needs of our clients. We will be known as unique thought leaders and advisors who are capable of adding real value to our clients’ lives.

Agency Philosophy


As an Independent Insurance Agency that has been in business since 1962, we have learned that time and experience teaches us to see things differently; showing us the value of what really matters. For our clients and our team, this applies to businesses, individuals, and our community.

At Waldo Agencies, we believe that having the right perspective will reveal proper priorities. Perspective means seeing things differently; such as:

  • Recognizing our employees as professionals and supporting their efforts.
  • Treating our clients as friends and respecting these relationships with honor.
  • Identifying risks that you may not see and providing a method for managing them.
  • Creating ways to make your organization more attractive to the insurance industry.
  • Evolving the industry to meet the needs of modern organizations.

    Who Are We?

    Nolan Field Insurance was started in 1962 by Nolan and Lucy Field. They began the business from their home in Ontario, Oregon with a desk, a sign on their car and one client. Dave and Barbara Waldo joined the business in 1969 and the business soon became Field-Waldo Insurance, Inc. New partners, Ray Waldo and John Forsyth joined the firm in the late 1970’s and have helped to grow the business throughout the valley, with offices in Nyssa, Ontario, and Vale.

    Field-Waldo Insurance Agencies is an independent insurance agency, placing insurance with more than 100 insurance companies each year. Waldo Real Estate, the real estate division of Waldo Agencies, was started in 1978 by Dave Waldo. The Ontario office was opened in 1992 and the New Plymouth, Idaho office opened in 1996.

    What Are Your Priorities?


    The “insurance business” is really about managing risk, not about selling insurance policies. That’s just how we get paid. This is why we believe that when you see what we see, you will take steps to deal with the issues that are being left to chance. To help you address these risks, we have combined our experience and knowledge with the InCite system to bring you a Risk Reduction Process that is usually only available to large corporations. Our methods customize this process for your particular business, and will make you more attractive to insurance companies. Our technique has proven itself with manufacturing, agricultural, automotive, and technology companies, as well as municipalities, non- profits, and many more. We routinely place business with over 100 insurance companies.

    Waldo Agencies also focuses on:

    Risk Planning - Revealing the risks in your organization that are affecting your bottom line and creating a risk reduction plan.

    Benefits Planning - Helping you take control of the issues that are affecting the cost of benefits by improving overall employee health.

    Insurance Placement - Making your organization attractive to insurance carriers so that you receive the most favorable rates possible.
