The Clare Agency, Inc. is a second-generation family owned and operated insurance agency. The agency was founded in 1946 and was incorporated in 1973. We are an independent insurance agency. What does that mean? Being an independent agent means you are not tied to just one insurance company. No single insurance company is going to have the best policy for all customers in all situations. You want an independent agent so you do not have to settle for a "one-size fits all" policy. An independent agent can look at the offerings from several companies to find the best product for you in your situation.
We will work with you to identify the best products, prices and services that are right for you.
We're here to give you professional advice.
