Nolan Family Insurance Agency


Note from the President:

Since 1974 when my father opened his first agency, the Nolan Family has been dedicated to protecting the families of our area. We pride ourselves on being a professional insurance agency that specializes in providing personal lines and commercial lines insurance products.

We are an independent insurance agent, which means we have the ability to quote your policies through a variety of companies. This allows us to look for the best coverage and rate available. We work with our customers to find the right mix of coverage and price.

We have built our reputation by providing prompt service and honest answers. If you are moving to our area or would like a no pressure, honest review of any of your current personal lines insurance products please contact our office and a member of Nolan Family Insurance will be happy to help you.

Shop Locally, Even for Insurance!

“Dear Neighbor,
When you hear the phrase “shop locally” do you ever think of your insurance? Most people spend thousands of dollars a year on insurance premiums and if you are not using a local agent then all of that money is gone from our community for good.

…For over 35 years, the Nolan family has been dedicated to supporting our local economy and giving back to our local community. We do our best to always make sure the commissions we earn from our customers’ premium dollars stay right here in our community. My employees and I live and raise our families here…”
