Alpena Agency is an independent insurance agency. This means we do business with a number of different insurance companies so we can offer our customers many choices, you can find the list of our major companies on this website. This flexibility has allowed Alpena Agency to help our clients with difficult situations and shop the market place for the best options. We have been very selective, maybe even picky, on the companies we represent so we can offer you the best value.
Our strength has always been a strong commitment to product knowledge, maintaining a professional staff and a focus on customer service. We offer a full range of insurance products (auto, home, life, health and business insurance). This has allowed us to grow our customer base and expand our relationships with the companies we represent.
We primarily service the Northern Michigan area but we have customers all over Michigan. From relationships our grandfather and father developed (and we later expanded) in the Detroit area, to people with seasonal homes “up north” that enjoyed working with us and had us take care of their primary house and car insurance downstate. We have always been a family business and have kept our friendly local small town approach without compromising the need for product knowledge and a professional staff.
