About Us

A Zeeman Company is a family-owned insurance agency that was founded in New York City in 1940.

The agency handles almost all lines of personal and business insurance ranging from apartment insurance to coverage for high value homes and small businesses to much larger firms. We handle not only the main types of insurance such as property and personal or commercial liability coverage but also specialty lines that are often needed such as professional liability, employment practices liability, directors and officers liability and even kidnap and ransom insurance.

Thus, we are usually able to handle ALL the insurance needs of our clients.

Our aim is to provide well-priced insurance with reputable and financially sound insurance companies, and to make the process as easy and understandable as possible. Continuing service to our clients is our top priority and we respond quickly to questions from clients, providing assistance with claims, promptly issuing certificates of insurance, reports, insurance ID cards and other needed documents.

I cannot thank you and Lynn Lyons enough. As you know, because I inherited a property in Virginia I found myself desperate to obtain homeowners and liability insurance on very short (24 hours) notice not only for myself but also for my sister in South Carolina. Despite the fact that you do not do business in Virginia, you went way out of your way with no money in it for you to get the insurance literally within hours. Such service is seldom seen in this day and age, particular to clients, like myself, who I imagine are "small" in terms of your overall client list. It is the same quality service that you have demonstrated for years to me and my family, and it is, apparently your rule to deliver it without exception. Lots of people sell insurance. Few deliver great service, and none that I know of deliver the type of service you do. You are a comfort, and you have every right to be proud of yourself, your agency and your employees. Thank you again. — Banks Brown
