About Us

Our Company

The agency was established on September 25, 1961 by Norman Shadduck Sr. For most of our 50 year history, we have been located on the East Side of Binghamton. The purchase of our current building at 32 Broad Ave shows our commitment to the East Side, the City of Binghamton, and surrounding communities.

Sons Norm, Mark and Dave followed founder Norm Sr. in the business and purchased the agency in 1988. In 2014, Suzanne Luce joined the firm as a Receptionist and Account Executive.

We offer property and casualty insurance (auto, home, business) and life insurance for individuals and businesses.

We are members of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers Association of America and Trusted Choice. We continually strive to provide excellent local personal service with the best possible companies and coverage to protect our growing list of clients.
