A little history (and what’s in a name)

… a few decades ago (in the previous century), well know insurance industry visionaries Richard and Keith Savino met John Sanford and they together decided to create Warwick Resource Group, along with John Sanfords’ partner at the time Eric Nilsestuen.  The agency in Warwick NY, John W. Sanford & Son Inc was a local insurance firm recognized as the diamond standard in Orange County, NY.  The Sanford family was filled with their own visionaries, having been part of the creation of the phone company (Warwick Valley telephone) and the local bank (Warwick valley savings) , among other historical milestones. John Sanford is active to this very day.

Our History - Broadfield Insurance
Our building, circa 1880, note the “Insurance” wording running vertical on the corner. Main street is dirt, and traffic is light..

The agency quickly grew and became a leader in technology.  Our first online client portal was introduced in 2002, and we won many awards. In the early 2000’s we began to use the tagline, the future of insurance since 1864. A nod to our continual commitment to a leading client experience.

After a celebration of our first 150th Anniversary, our agency decided it was time to relaunch and create a new company for the next 150 years, and that company was christened:  “Broadfield Insurance Group”.  Our name reflects our “broad” and welcoming approach to our client’s needs, combined with our agricultural roots over 150 years ago, the term “field” … and you have “Broadfield”.

Our formula for success is simple, personal service combined with the choices that representing many insurance companies brings. Our clients all know their service staff on a first name basis, and generally know the Agency Principals as well. Our vast carrier selection means we offer many choices to fit almost any budget. After hours, when an emergency strikes, it’s these very same people who answer your calls, 24 x 7. We live where you live, and that’s what makes us special.
