ABOUT US

AllenDuncan_June 2022.jpg

Allen-Duncan Agencies has been in Titusville since 1989 and we feel a special connection to this, and surrounding communities, as well as the people that reside here. Our agency is built on trust and loyalty. In fact, some of you that wrote policies with us that first year in 1989 still have insurance with our agency, which speaks to the loyalty you feel to our company and we feel to you.

 

We started off as a small agency with only 3 employees and just over 500 policies. Since then we have grown to 10 employees and over 7000 policies spanning all across Florida. From Titusville to Melbourne and all places in between, we welcome the opportunity to earn your business. Our customer retention rate is 90% due to the excellent customer service we provide and because you can trust that we always have your best interests at heart.

Combined,  our agents have been in the insurance field for over 90 years, and it’s that experience and expertise that allows us to cater to your needs without overselling or underselling our products. Anything we can do to make the insurance experience better for you, we are happy to accommodate.
