GV&Y Insurance Agency was established in 1989 by then Allstate Insurance Agent’s / David Grich / Richard Vaughn / and George Yphantes. Allstate Insurance announced on Nov.14, 1988 that it could not make a profit on Massachusetts Auto, therefore it would leave the market altogether, taking all lines of insurance with it. Dave, Rich and George, with over 20 years of service respectively with the direct writer, chose to enter the Independent Agency network. With their prior knowledge as a direct writer the agency would become a hybrid as an Independent Agent.
Currently the agency provides over a half billion dollars in homeowners insurance protection for residents of the Metro West / Boston area, in addition to providing coverage to over 4000 drivers. The agency has expanded its services division to include Insurance and Investment Planning, as well as Life Insurance and Long Term Care as to offer its clients all their insurance needs.
Today with over 40 years of serving its client base Stacey Souza-Balzi now heads up the team of professionals responsible for making the agency a viable force to compete with the direct writers in Massachusetts. GV&Y is committed to its clients needs and feels it can competitively compete within the industry. As a hybrid the agency has a strong relationship with its clients and maintains that personal touch so much needed in today’s environment.
