About Us

Team Inside23.jpg

The Cator Agency began protecting Oregonians in 2014 with the primary goals of treating every customer the way we want to be treated and making sure our customers are truly better off.

We are a family owned and operated local Clackamas insurance agency offering services in the Portland Metro area, throughout the state of Oregon, and the entire state of Washington.


We are not an 800-number. We are not insurance salespeople. We are an agency that cares about our customers and are very proud of our Oregon roots.

Why this matters

Because we put our clients first. Insurance can be confusing and often we don’t have time to understand what we’re paying for and that’s where we come in. We know how to protect your specific PNW lifestyle.


We’d love for you to stop by, meet our team, and let us review your coverage and work up a quote for you. We also understand you’re busy and a deep diving into a homeowners insurance or an auto insurance policy is not how most people want to spend their time but we do!  We actually love it!


We understand the importance of utilizing the most relevant and innovative technology.  This is why we are here to provide local service in the most comfortable and convenient way for you. This can be by phone, text, email, online chat, mobile app, or via web-based account options.


Our team is knowledgeable and genuinely committed to offering the best protection at the best value while providing world class customer service.

Heather Cator
Agency Owner

I moved from Yuma, AZ to Portland, OR in 2000 and never looked back! I love everything about the PNW and the natural beauty of Oregon. My son graduated from Milwaukie High School and now attends Oregon State University in Corvallis. My family and I enjoy taking in Portland Timbers soccer matches, hitting farmers markets and spending time along the Oregon coast going on day hikes with our two dogs Nelson and Robert.


I started The Cator Agency because I care about people. I want to help customers as they make decisions that protect what matters most: their family, home, car, snowmobile, motorcycle, and boat. My goal is to build a foundation of trust and respect and for The Cator Agency to be recognized as a top choice for insurance needs.
