Austin Barnes

Farm Bureau Financial Services

Austin Barnes was a small business owner for 20 years. 12 of those years he was an agent with Farm Bureau Financial Services before transitioning to the home office in 2018 as an Agency Manager. He has found constant value in serving and leading in organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Commission, and served many years in leadership of the FBFS Agents Association. He is currently responsible for 20 agents and 18 Sales Associates. His driving passion is helping those he serves to understand that what our profession does, NO OTHER industry can do. He constantly reminds his team: “We are the only ones that do what we do. If you don’t ask who will? At the end of today you will have traded one day of your life for the work that you did.  Don’t get out hustled and make a good trade”

He and his wife Kendra, who is an Agent of Farm Bureau Financial Services as well, reside in Quinter, Ks with 2 sons: 15-year-old Gavin and 13-year-old Shea. Last but not least a well-loved but spoiled Golden Retriever named Moose.
