About Us

In September of 1924, John Carriero founded the insurance agency as a local retail establishment providing insurance, real estate, and foreign exchange services. John immigrated to the United States in 1914 from his native country of Italy. John was truly an entrepreneur; his first venture was selling wine by the barrel from California Vineyards. He later started the "American Dairy", bottling and delivering milk, and also manufacturing and wholesaling ice cream, shipping it by trolley. He and two friends also started the "Carriero Bottling Co." which bottled and distributed soda. In 1924 he sold his interest in all of his ventures and created the John Carriero Insurance Agency and this venture still exists today!

The agency has seen many changes over the past 80 plus years except the office location, it was founded here at 98 Railroad Street, the property itself has seen many changes to accommodate our growth. In 1969, Peter and Mary took over the agency. We discontinued the Real Estate portion in 1970 and entered in the wholesale MGA markets. The wholesale distribution system has seen rapid development over the years. We serve 11 Northeastern States and are a multi-million dollar operation. Although our agency's principal focus is on personal lines, we also write commercial lines such as; mobile home parks and dealers, boiler and machinery, errors & omissions, and at this time we are developing other commercial products to be offered in the future.

We represent the finest companies in the specialty industry such as: American Modern Insurance Group, American Bankers Insurance Co., American Reliable Insurance Co., RLI Insurance Co., Hartford Steam Boiler & Machinery.
