Farhad Hanasab is the President and Founder of Hanasab Insurance Services, Inc. He began his career in the insurance industry over 20 years ago where he worked for a direct writer that specialized in Automobile and Homeowners insurance. Early in his career, perfecting risk management skills were essential priorities to establishing unmatched client relationships. Farhad prioritized all of the key components he would need, to one day establish his own boutique insurance agency. Since then, he has made it his mission to provide unrivaled service and security as he helps the High Net Worth clientele navigate through the challenges of their insurance and financial needs. Licensed with over 300 insurance companies and with the ability to write policies in 45 states, Farhad exemplifies commendable partnerships with both his clients and top premier insurance carriers.
A vast majority of Mr. Hanasab’s clients include publicly traded companies, large privately held real estate firms, Sports & Entertainment legends, renowned doctors and legal professionals, and established restaurants. The high level of trust and caring that defines Farhad’s relationships with his clients is rooted in his strong sense of community. “Beverly Hills is and always will be a huge part of my life. I have lived there since I was seven years old. Having the ability to work with the folks I grew up with and to continue their family legacies as well as safeguard their homes and businesses has taken those relationships to a deeper level.”
A long-standing client of Mr. Hanasab shares his support and gratification of the services he has received. “My highest gratitude goes to a great friend Farhad Hanasab (the founder of Hanasab Insurance Services) and his wonderful team, who not only were of great help in simplifying many complicated aspects of this power-packed project, but also provided the vital insurance coverage for highly risky aspects of my business operations as well as raising my awareness of risk factors lurking around any business.”
Farhad’s sense of altruism and public spiritedness drives his work and civic philanthropy. He has provided leadership, financial contributions and most importantly, hands on support to the Concern Foundation for Cancer Research. This foundation is and always will be close to his heart. Farhad lives in Beverly Hills, with his wife, two inspiring sons and enjoys spending much of his free time with his family traveling, playing sports and dining at his favorite Beverly Hills restaurants. Farhad believes if “you follow your passions and dreams, the rest will follow.”

Just after 2 years with them, he was invited to an industry event where he met Farhad Hanasab. Robert says, “At that moment, we both were visionary, our vision was to be a boutique style insurance agency but with the ability to compete against the corporate ABC brokerage firms.”
In the Spring of 2010, Farhad offered Robert a partnership whilst he already founded his own boutique insurance agency named Hanasab Insurance Services Inc. Robert accepted the offer to partner up with Farhad. Since then, Robert’s business has grown 10 fold. He knows that the culture and energy at Hanasab Insurance Service is fascinating and that is what fuels him to do more business with his clients, insurance companies and more importantly to keep “the family atmosphere” within our company alive.
At the age of 21, Robert was married and soon after at 23 he had three sons, Aaron, Ryan, and Matthew. Robert is active and present in their lives as he coached their little league teams and always played baseball, football, and basketball with them. He is an outdoorsy person and loves to snowboard, jog, take boating trips, and most of all just spending time with his family.
