About Us

Anchor Agency has recently celebrated the 50th Anniversary of our founding in May of 1960. The Agency was established by Lee Aronowitz, Arthur Kapner, Edward Corts and Marvin Freedman. Lee, Art and Ed have passed away in recent years and Marvin remains with the Agency as Chairman.

From the very inception we attempted to build an Insurance Agency dedicated to superior service to our clients and staffed by trained and experienced staff many of whom have been with us more than twenty years. We endeavor to make clients out of customers who depend on us to protect them and their assets with proper coverage at the lowest possible premium.

Our original office was at 75 State Street in downtown Albany but to accommodate our expanding business we moved to Colvin Avenue where we now own and occupy a six thousand square foot building from which our twenty three employees can function with the latest technology in servicing the needs of our clients.

We have a Personal Insurance Department which serves more than two thousand accounts, a Commercial Insurance Department that insures more than eight hundred businesses and a Employee Benefits Department that handles, Life, Group Health, Long Term Care and other group and individual benefits. 

We are dedicated to the Community and the Agency Principals and Associates have served as leaders of many Community Boards, like The Albany Chamber of Commerce, Albany Symphony Orchestra, St. Peters Hospital are just a few and as Board Members of many other organizations.  We have been honored with awards for these efforts on many occasions.

We endeavor to build relationships with our clients by learning about them, their families and how their businesses operate so they can feel comfortable that when the unexpected occurs we will be there with them.  In addition, we have a full time claims person who has been with us for more than forty years to assure that claim reports and payments are processed promptly.

Our sales staff is trained to establish relationships with the people we service so they are comfortable that all of us are dedicated as a team to protect them and their assets.
We look to the future as we pursue our corporate mission in the years to come.

Our Mission

To provide excellent service in a professional manner, with integrity and technical skill. We endeavor to protect our client’s property and assets by providing appropriate insurance products and through the continual educational and personal development of our staff.
