Sage Insurance Team
Robert L. Johnson
After graduating from Wright State University with an Accounting and Finance degree in 1989, I started my career as an Accountant for a bank in Cincinnati, Ohio. Very quickly I came to the conclusion, I cannot stand being behind a desk, so I took my insurance license. After passing the license exam, I started selling life Insurance and mutual funds for a broker in Columbus, Ohio. Go Buckeye!!!! I still like to fly back to Ohio and watch the Buckeyes play football with old friends and family in Columbus.
In 1996 I moved to Las Vegas, and I passed the property and casualty exam. I started my career as a captive agent for seven years. In 2003, I was activated by the U.S.A.F. to serve for one year on active duty when the Iraqi war started. After returning to Las Vegas I realize the enormous opportunity you could have to build a business as an independent agent. I was hired to manage and develop a start-up agency. After growing the agency for several years the management moved their operations to Texas, and I had to take a long hard look at my career. I decided it was time for me to manage and operate my own agency.

Lisa Lucero is the Sage Office Manager and Financial Director joining our team in May, 2003. In January 2011 she took on additional responsibilities as the Office Manager and her duties are varied. In short, she is responsible for the smooth operation of day-to-day activities. She watches over both the people and the money. Lisa is the one that insures client payments go to the right place and at the right time. Lisa is the one that pays the bills. Lisa is the one that keeps all agency finances in order. Lisa is often first in every morning … getting here as early as 6:00 AM. Lisa is a valuable asset to the agency AND she decided to pursue an insurance license in January 2008.
So, now Lisa is also an agent for the company and can answer your insurance questions as well! That is a rare combination in this industry. It simply goes to point out that we have the best here at Sage and the client is always the beneficiary.
Lisa was born in the San Joaquin Valley [French Camp, CA] and lived on a grape ranch until she was 7 when her family moved to Henderson. She has been here ever since and that makes her a true Las Vegas Valley native. She graduated from Basic High School, attended Apollo Tech for computer training and then UNLV for 2 years. With a varied background ranging from convenience store management to accounts payable clerk to human resources, Lisa adds a wealth of knowledge to our staff.

Gary was born in what is now Karachi, Pakistan, and spent his formative years in India and in Casablanca. He graduated from Lycée Lyautey which is known as the most multicultural and most competitive school in Morocco. While attending Columbia University in New York in the early 1960’s, Gary decided that California was more to his liking. He moved and graduated from Fresno State University as an Industrial Engineer in 1969.
His travels eventually brought him to Southern Nevada where he has worked in the real estate and insurance industry since 1974. Gary got his insurance license in 1996 and has been selling commercial insurance ever since.
In February, 2012 Gary moved to the Sage Insurance Team when the Burns Insurance Agency of Las Vegas and Sage merged efforts. We are happy to have him on staff here. He ads much to the agency because of his experience, knowledge, multilingual talents and personable nature. If you have a business or know someone that does, Gary is the go to guy for commercial insurance. He and our commercial lines manager (Michele Tanico) make a dynamic duo that can bring the best companies together with your business to provide the most competitive rates for the very best protection.
Gary speaks 4 languages: English, Spanish, French and Sindhi. Gary is happily married to Kathi Horsfall, from Cleveland Ohio. Kathi works as an escrow officer with Old Republic here in Las Vegas.

Jesse was one of four agents that came to Sage when we merged with AGS Insurance in February, 2009. Jesse received his insurance license in February, 2009 which makes him a relatively new agent… but he’s eager and he’s learning daily. If you talk to him, you’ll find him willing to help you in any way he can. Just give him a chance and he’ll do the job you expect from agents here at Sage. Jesse has just the right balance of common sense and integrity to make certain that you have all the information you need to make the right insurance decisions.
Jesse became a Dad in May 2010 when his wife Adria gave birth to Jake Ryne. Yup, that's Ryne, like in Ryne Sandberg ... Jesse's favorite baseball player.
Jesse was raised in Southern Utah and moved to Las Vegas in 1994. He is a graduate of Western High School where he played both football and baseball. He’s an avid sports fan and a die hard Cubbie during baseball season. He enjoys the outdoors, camping and spending time with his wife and new Son.
