About Us

The C. Clifton Veirs Agency is an independent property, casualty, life and surety agency serving the Greater Washington, DC Metro Area. In 1955, C. Clifton Veirs Jr. founded our agency in Rockville, MD with the purpose of helping businesses, families, and individuals protect what is important to them. In the mid 1970’s the agency truly became a family business when his sons, C. Clifton, III (Chip) and Peter came on board; and in 2010, Chip’s son Cliff became the third generation to join the firm.

Since 1955, our ideals have remained unchanged:

  1. Take a client-centric, consultative approach to identify and understand our clients’ needs and present the best options to address those needs.
  2. Provide clients with exceptional customer service – to be informative, efficient, and available; and to successfully advocate for our clients when we’re needed most.
  3. Build relationships with only financially strong carriers that share our client-centric attitude and offer superior products that can best serve our client base.

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 businessowner 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.
