Our History

Robert E. Harris began what would eventually become his namesake agency in 1955. He started his career as a surety bond specialist, providing bonds and insurance coverage for commercial and residential developers. As the agency grew, he began to develop properties for his own portfolio and gained a principal’s perspective in the same risk management issues that his clients faced.

For more than five decades, the Robert E. Harris Insurance Agency has built a core capability insuring clients in the construction and development fields. The agency has been built upon the premise of delivering a highly personalized level of service to its clients that includes representing the best carriers in the marketplace. We develop a deep understanding of our clients’ exposures to insurable risks, arrive at innovative insurance solutions, assist with risk management, and apply skilled policy knowledge and proactive claims assistance in meeting the insurance needs of our clients.

Now under the leadership of Steve Harris, the agency continues to provide commercial and personal insurance lines and bonds with the same unquestioned integrity that the agency was founded upon.
