About Us

Thank you for taking a moment to learn about the 

John W. Sanford & Son, and Warwick Resource Group history.

 

WRG is the Warwick Valley's Oldest and Largest Insurance Agency.
CELEBRATING OVER 150 YEARS

Our Multiple Locations in Multiple States are committed to the same local service started in Warwick over 150 years ago

With our roots back to 1864,
we are also one of the oldest agencies in the tri-state area.

A little history: a few decades ago well know industry visionaries John Sanford, Richard and Keith Savino decided to create Warwick Resource Group, based on the qualities that have made John W. Sanford & Son Inc Insurance the diamond standard in Orange County.

Our plans were to extend into other territories and specialties.
Read on to learn how we have accomplished many of our goals, including enhancing the "Customer Experience"

Today we are one of the fastest growing agencies in the area with multiple offices in various states across the U.S.

2014-2015 A lifelong dream of expanding our vision "coast to coast" became a realization with the marriage of WRG's new partnership with Libke Insurance Associates. One of the great insurance agencies of the northwest, Libke Associates is based in the state of Washington. Their additional expertise has added to the strength of our company and has provided many additional opportunities. 

2013 WRG continued our growth with the addition of businesses through acquisition and more sales executives focused on niche business. We have expanded to include over 100 major carriers and partnered with businesses n FL, TX, PA, NC, OR and WA are wrapping up our national strategy. With over 20 offices in 10 states there is plenty for our local clients and large national commercial clients to be excited about. 

2012 was a interesting year, and superstorm Sandy ended our year with the opportunity to service our clients 24/7 without interruption from storm start to New Year's Eve.  Our dedicated staff and online systems ran all day and night and our clients always had a friendly voice to talk to, or place to visit.

New Jersey: Our NJ associates from Midlantic Agencies joined Warwick Resource Group in 2009. Established over 50 years ago, Midlantic brings additional expertise in Restaurants, Bars and Taverns as well as additional Personal Insurance options. This will allow us to grow further into New Jersey and provide more options for our clients. You can visit us on-line  at www.mahwahinsurance.com.

Rockland: As a result of our growth, our Rockland office moved to larger space in January 2009 to Bardonia (between Nanuet and New City) on Route 304. We are already the largest supporter of builders and remodelers in Rockland and Orange counties. Our small business executives are busy, and and we are growing our personal insurance division every day by offering more choices than many Rockland residents have had in one single office, on one call. With the addition of Adrian Waltzer Associates from their Suffern location to our Bardonia office, we continue to grow our Rockland influence. Visit us online at www.rocklandinsurance.com

Long Island and Connecticut:
In 2010 WRG added local representatives in Long Island and Fairfield Ct. to further bring the local charm and support of our core philosophy to those areas. In addition our unique niche ability to place Coastal Risks through exclusive programs will help our current and new clients in those territories.

Washington State: Our partnership with Libke Insurance Associates has enabled us to provide clients nationwide with Coast to Coast Insurance Options. More carriers and stronger relationships equal more possibilities for our clients.
 

How do we keep growing ?
Our formula 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.

Our Niches'
Our core Specialties in the Construction, Technology, Agriculture, Restaurant, Municipality, Professional, and Garage/Automotive industry's are widely recognized by local community's trade associations and the industry in general.

Our Professional and Industry Reputation
Our Agency Principals are committed to the industry, and community. We serve on many local and national boards, including PIA, ACORD, and AIMS.

Community Support
Our community involvement includes Warwick Rotary, Congers Rotary and Bergen Highlands Rotary and local Chambers of Commerce. Our office supports many local charities and events including the Warwick Expo, as a Platinum partner. One of our principals is well known for his Chili, served up at the local firehouse. We live where you live.

Our Future Plans
Warwick Resource Group has grown on a tradition of service, knowledge and quality of carriers. Our roster of carriers more than tripled in the last few years. This is reflective of our growth and commitment to providing updated products for our clients. Look for more service options in 2015, and even more Niches both online and in person.

Our strength of history and ability to service your future combines to make your selection of insurance professional a very easy one.

We thank you for joining the WRG family of clients. You are now part of the Future of Insurance.
