Effective 09/01/22 we have formed Ayres-Oak Senior Insurance Services which will be located at 316 North Nottawa Street in Sturgis. This location will specialize in insurance products for seniors and health insurance for all ages. Bob Hile, Jill Boerman, and James Grove will be moving there. Our main office will remain at its current location at 123 West Hatch Street in Sturgis.
Effective 10/01/22 our affiliate of over 15 years, Noecker-Sullivan Insurance in Constantine, will be merging into our Hatch Street location. Ben Harrison, Renae Wright, and Megan Connelly will be relocating here. As part of our continued efforts to help those in need, we will be donating our Constantine office building to KeyStone Place – an organization that provides temporary shelter and services for homeless families and individuals. They will be moving their administrative offices there.
Both Ayres-Oak Insurance Services and Ayres-Oak Senior Insurance Services continue to be locally owned and operated. We are NOT owned by an out-of-town agency or private equity firm. No “800” number to call for service or limited hours – our offices are fully staffed, and we welcome you to stop by. We represent the following companies: Accident Fund, Auto-Owners, Citizens/Hanover, EMC, Foremost, Frankenmuth Mutual, Hastings Mutual, Progressive, Secura, Travelers, and Wolverine Mutual. If you are already insured with one of these fine companies but would like to switch and be serviced by a locally owned agency, give us a call and we will arrange the paperwork. We will always financially support and serve the local communities where we work and live.
