After attending the University of Houston, Oswaldo worked for a few years in the engineering and finance industry. He became an Insurance Agent in 1980 in the field of Life, Health and Financial Services. In 1983, he started his career in the property and casualty field representing Farmers Insurance Group of Companies growing rapidly to become one of the most successful agencies in Texas.

Upon successful completion of state required examinations, Oswaldo received his diploma as Accredited Adviser in Insurance in 1986. His desire for growth and success led him to achieve the highest honors given by Farmers Insurance Group in his almost 30 years with the company. 

In January 2013, Mr. Puentes decided to become an Independent Agent with the purpose of expanding the options of coverage, premium and package discounts for his clients. His aspiration as an Independent Insurance Agent is to continue to provide top notch customer service satisfaction by offering more options of coverage and premium structure from several different insurance companies.
