About Bankers Insurance

“Hometown friendly and multi-state strong” describes our focus of maintaining long-standing relationships with our clients and communities.

We focus on you, the client, and endeavor to be your trusted insurance adviser, providing the right fit for your insurance needs. Our commitment is to provide No Excuse Client Service. Having grown to the second largest private insurance agency in Virginia, we use our buying power to negotiate better rates with insurance providers. Through the years we developed specialty insurance programs in specific industries and offer them nationwide.

Applied Expertise

The insurance industry is large and continuously evolving. Which company has the best product and price for your needs? We work in this industry each day and specialize in providing tailored insurance solutions. Our value lies in the way we apply this expertise for our clients.

We design plans to suit your needs, provide licensed and trained agents to answer your questions, and supply consistent service from a local representative. Our business model still calls for each client to be assigned a dedicated account manager and provided their email and a phone number that rings right on their desk. We guide our clients seamlessly through an otherwise complex process. Should the unfortunate happen, be confident. Be prepared.

Our History

An association of community banks formed Bankers Insurance in 1999. However, we trace the roots of our founding agencies all the way back to 1896. And though we are now Virginia’s second largest privately-owned independent insurance agency, we remain structured to provide local client support at each of our offices throughout Virginia and North Carolina.
