Bob & Amy Ryan at the Shamrock RunLocal is Good

As the landscape shifts and other local insurance brokers yield to national chains, we remain independent and dedicated to our community. For 65 years this community has provided our family with opportunities to tailor insurance coverage to their family, business and organization’s needs.

Many local brokerages have been bought by large corporate agencies or rolled up into private equity-owned firms. This has resulted in many changes, but most to the advantage of their corporate parents and their stock valuation. We are proud to continue the tradition of local ownership and commitment to our community. For example, at Ryan & Ryan you will still get a live person on the phone 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

A local agency relying on human professionalism can help customers avoid the coverage gap. The local firm can bring flexibility, understanding, situational awareness, creative thinking, experienced-based and locally based learning to the customer’s situation.

We can help customers make sure a unique risk is insured, a special situation is understood, and the vulnerability wrapped in effective and economically affordable coverage.

In doing this, a local agency brings significant economic benefits to the community. We stimulate the local economy, cycling money and taxes locally. We create local employment versus distant or offshored jobs. We support community development and help reduce environmental impacts.

Supporting local businesses not only benefits the economy but also helps to build a strong and vibrant community.
