Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency, November Featured Business

by Terra Osterling

The Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce is pleased to recognize Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency of 620 Titus Avenue as the featured business for November 2017.

Just two years ago on Veteran's Day, Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency opened its doors in the iconic yellow house on Titus Avenue near Hudson. But owner Megan Flanagan Mills is no newcomer to Farmers Insurance, having worked as a corporate employee for eight years prior recruiting agents for the company. She then decided to take her own advice.

Opening in Irondequoit was an easy choice—it's where she and her family call home, and the small town feel reminds her of the community-focus of Penn Yan, where she grew up.

Irondequoit has welcomed the business with open arms. Within six months of opening, Mills received the Farmers Insurance Blue Vase Award, a Life insurance sales award, and has five times received the Farmers Quarterly New Business Award. Flanagan Mills Agency was the fastest-growing Farmers agency in New York last year.

Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency offers auto, home, renters, business, motorcycle, and recreational insurance, in addition to umbrella insurance and financial solutions. Educating and connecting with present and future customers is a priority for Mills.

“Sometimes it can be difficult to let a potential customer leave without making the sale. But if I do the right thing and give someone good advice, there is no reason that the door needs to be shut forever. People appreciate honesty and integrity," says Mills.

Flanagan Mills Agency is a sponsor of the Irondequoit Farmers Market; Irondequoit Police Department “Shop with a Cop" program; family days and giveaway days at the Rochester Red Wings; the Corn Hill Arts Festival; the Rochester Knighthawks; and the Park Ave Fest. Mills herself is on the Board of Directors of Borinquen Dance Theatre and is a Girl Scouts Gold Award mentor.

“I really want the Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency to become a household name in Irondequoit," says Mills. “Not just because we are fast-growing and reaching more customers every day, but because we are community-centric and built on integrity and generosity."

Farmers Insurance – Flanagan Mills Agency is located at 620 Titus Avenue. For insurance quotes and more information, visit their website or call (585) 678-8008. Also follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
