Kaleb Harvey, an experienced insurance agent with over 20 years of industry knowledge, has made significant contributions to the field. Licensed at the young age of 21, Kaleb began working alongside his father, Randy Harvey, at Harvey Monteith Insurance. Growing up in a farming environment and having a stepfather who was a general contractor, Kaleb developed a keen interest in the construction industry. He even pursued various construction-related side businesses, including building homes, office structures, renovations, and welding projects.
However, at the age of 26, Kaleb, unmarried and without children, made a life-changing decision to explore a career as an underwater welder in the oil and underwater salvage industry. After four years, he returned home to visit family and met his future wife. Recognizing the need to prioritize family life, Kaleb decided to leave the offshore industry and reenter the insurance field. Over time, he and his sister acquired two-thirds of the agency from their father and restructured it as Harvey Insurance Agency, Inc.

With a strong network in the construction industry, he successfully built a substantial book of business focusing on contractors. In addition to his insurance work, Kaleb actively contributes to his community. He serves on a board that constructs homes using students from local Pasco High Schools and also acts as a range safety officer, organizing shooting matches at a local gun range.

Weekends are often spent at his cabin in the cascade corridor. Kaleb is a proud parent, raising a 16-year-old stepdaughter whom he considers his own and a 9-year-old son.
