Forbes Agency  

About Us


The Forbes Agency, has roots in the community extending back to 1884. We pride ourselves in offering personal and professional service to more than 800 families and 200 businesses in the tri-state area. We are large enough to serve you, yet small enough to care.

What are some of the benefits of buying insurance from Forbes:

  • We are independent agents, so we work for you, not for a particular Insurance Company.
  • We represent a variety of companies so we can shop for the coverage that is best for your needs and your budget.
  • We review your insurance coverage regularly to ensure that, as your life and circumstance changes, your insurance coverage stays current.
  • When you call we are here. Our agents and staff care about your important business. If you have a loss, you don't want to talk to a recording or an 800 number. You want and deserve personal assistance from someone you know you can trust to work for a fast, fair claim settlement. That's what insurance is all about and for sure, that's what we're all about.
