While Foy Insurance might not be a name you immediately recognize, it's actually one of New England's largest insurance agencies. Established in 1893, the Foy Insurance Group comprises a respected group of 13 independent insurance agencies throughout New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts. In 2005 The Foy Group purchased Cerel Insurance in Milford, renamed the agency to Foy Insurance and appointed Mike Calzone as agency manager. Calzone, a Certified Insurance Counselor, has been working in the insurance business since 1990 and brings years of expertise to the position. In 2009, Foy Insurance moved to their current location at 154 West St., Milford.
"The goal at Foy Insurance is to bring the business into the 21st century while still providing the personal service and attention our customers have come to expect from their hometown insurance agency", said Calzone. "We have a great team at the Milford office. We are all committed to working closely with our clients to assess their specific needs and find the insurance solution that best fits those needs." This philosophy fits perfectly with the Foy Insurance slogan, "Let Us Do the Shopping for You". With so many insurance companies available, the Foy Insurance staff is always able to find the perfect fit for their customers. Foy Insurance can write your Home, Auto, Business, General Liability, Worker's Compensation, Contractor's and Life insurance policies – "if it matters to you, it matters to us".
Jan Carey-Wilson, a licensed agent at Foy, came into the insurance business with a background in education and sales. She said, "For the majority of my adult life, I was an insurance customer, now I'm on the other side. From this perspective, I am able to really identify with my clients to best meet their needs. Sometimes, it's all about price, and sometimes a client needs a very specific type of coverage. The benefit of coming to Foy Insurance is that we are able to give our clients exactly what they need."
Maria "Lena" Ellmore, fluent in Portuguese, who has been a CSR with the agency for the past 12 years, said of Foy Insurance, "In the past few years, we have seen a lot of changes: improved technology, real-time quoting, and the number of insurance companies we can write policies with has really set us apart from many of the agencies in the area."
One of the specialty areas that set Foy Insurance apart from other agencies is their ability to insure your toys. "We have a great market for toys--no other local agency can compete with us when it comes to insuring fun!" stated Calzone. "We have the good fortune to be one of the only agencies in the area to represent Progressive. Working with Progressive we can insure your motorcycle (complete with roadside assistance), boats, ATV's, golf carts and motor homes at a big discount compared to what most companies charge.
Foy Insurance is open Monday – Friday 8:30 to 5, with Saturday and evening appointments available. Want Foy Insurance to do the shopping for you and provide a no-obligation quote? Call 508-473-4747, email email@example.com or visit 154 West Street, Milford, or see our website, www.foyinsurance.com.
