In 1982, Gordon Insurance was founded with the objective of trying to become not the largest Independent Insurance Agency in the Washington, DC metro area, but one of the most creative, offering policies and programs that would best suit the varying needs of its diverse customers.
Agency owner, Solvin W. Gordon, does not believe that to be successful means to advertise heavily, have a large staff, or pay for Class A office space. Sol believes in giving his clients personal service, quick response to questions, keeping his insured’s away from harmful leases and/or agreements and, should the need arise, be the point man for claims.
Gordon Insurance is part of the Independent Insurance Agency System. This means Gordon Insurance has the means to understand and identify the difficult needs of his clients. Gordon Insurance has the ability to use over 5,000 independent carriers to locate just the right coverage for a specific need. The direct carriers (State Farm, Allstate, Nationwide, Erie, Liberty Mutual, and the like) can only use their own services and coverage, and they do not like nonstandard situations and issues. With over 30 years of experience, Sol Gordon has seen it all… hard and soft markets, coverage additions or deletions, and carriers that have come and gone.
Gordon Insurance provides numerous client services at no additional cost: Lease/agreement reviews, review of financial statements and depreciation schedules, loss run trending, cash flow trending, and of course, the normal duties of shopping, proposals, and exposure detections.
