About Us

Quinton Insurance was founded in 1996 by its current President D. Gordon Quinton.

Gordon, originally born in Toronto Canada moved to Rochester NY after attending college on a tennis scholarship and married his wife Marie Casciano originally from Rochester NY.

“I remember my first day like it was yesterday. I had this tiny office and these huge filing cabinets and I remember asking myself, “How am I ever going to find enough clients to fill these things?” When I started there was no internet, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. There was just the old-fashioned phone book. I would wake up every morning, open the phone book and start calling business owners for eight hours a day asking them if I could save them money on their business insurance. At night, I would go home and have dinner with my family and then I would start again, this time calling homeowners to ask them if I could quote their car and home insurance. People ask me all the time, “How did you discipline yourself to make all those calls every day?” It was very simple; I had a family to support.”

In 15 years Quinton Insurance had seen tremendous growth and continues to grow by double digits every year.

In 2013, Gordon reached out to his long-time friend and real estate business partner, Joe Alloco to help him take the agency to the next level. With Gordon & Joe at the helm of Quinton Insurance they have tripled the size of the agency in only 6 years. Their goal is to make Quinton Insurance into one of the largest insurance brokerages in the United States

Today Quinton Insurance is proud to protect more than 10,000 clients.

Our mission is simple: “To provide our clients with the best possible protection at the lowest possible cost every single day.”

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
