Monroeville, PA Insurance Agency
Monroeville’s First ERIE Agency
Remaley Insurance Agency was established over 50 years ago in Monroeville, Pennsylvania. The agency has actually been in operation since 1929 and has the distinction of being the first ERIE agency in the Pittsburgh area. It changed hands in 1962 when principal Agent Duane “Bud” Remaley purchased it from Whitfield Bethell, the original owner.
To this day, Bud’s vision for his agency --: providing important insurance knowledge and products to the residents in Monroeville -- hasn’t changed. “We don’t sell on price – we educate and offer our customers choices and allow them to choose a quality insurance program that best fits their needs,” Bud said.
Hard Work and Ethics at the Heart of the Agency
Bud was born and raised on a farm in nearby Murrysville, Pennsylvania, and has instilled his ethics and hard work into his staff. These principles helped the agency earn the Erie Insurance F.W. Hirt Quality Agency Award in 1987.
The agency is open year-round, aside from six national holidays, to better serve customers. It’s comprised of six staff members, including Bud’s daughter, Debie Remaley, who is also a principal agent. All staff members are licensed in property/casualty and life insurance.
Bud has 54 years of insurance experience. Debie has 29 years of insurance experience and holds a number of designations such as the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC), Certified Risk Manager (CRM), Certified Professional Insurance Agent (CPIA) and Life Underwriting Training Council Fellow (LUTCF). In addition, all of the agency staff members complete 20 hours of general continuing education classes annually. Education, and being able to apply it for the customer’s benefit, is extremely important at the agency.
Giving Back to the Community
Community involvement is also promoted at the agency. Employees are encouraged to volunteer their time to various organizations and services. Debie is very involved in her three children’s extracurricular activities. She is also the president of a local high-school Swim and Dive Booster organization.
