“We’re very fortunate to have been continually serving our clients for eight decades. It’s truly a tribute to all the excellent people who have come before us and built this agency over time, one customer at a time and one policy at a time,” Rocky said. “From my grandfather to my father; to all the wonderful employees and all the loyal customers we’ve had; it is the relationships we’ve enjoyed over the years that have brought us to this place.”

Every one of us understands that we have a strong and prosperous company now because of the efforts of all the people who came before us. Along with our superb staff, Roemer’s reputation in the marketplace among our customers and insurance carriers is -– our most valuable asset.”
