Our Process:
We meet personally with all clients, getting to know them as well as their properties. We treat your properties with the same care and thoughtfulness that we would treat our own, resulting in retention rates far beyond industry norms.

Our Approach:
We build a foundation of mutual trust between our clients and the associates who work with us.  In our typical client relationship we gather extensive background on each client’s philosophy and expectations as to what they seek to happen at the time of an insurable event, as well as their specific facts and circumstances.  We strive to always give each client the benefit of the best advice we are capable of rendering based on their circumstances and our experience.  As independent insurance brokers we have the ability to represent a wide range of insurers whose products serve the needs of our clients.

The Francis R. Doran Insurance Agency was founded in 1988, and is a customer-focused organization that works exclusively with the personal insurance needs of discerning higher income and net worth individuals and families. 

The Doran agency has extensive experience in insuring fine homes and possessions, valuable possessions, high limits of liability, autos, boats, long-term care and sophisticated life insurance planning to replace lost income and minimize the impact of estate taxes.  As an independent agent, the firm represents many companies.

The agency has earned the elite Cornerstone Agency designation by the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, long regarded as the premier insurer of fine homes and valuable possessions.  Of the 38,000 professional insurance agents in America, only 3,500 agents represent Chubb.  Chubb designates only 320 of its agents as Cornerstone Agents. 

The Doran Agency’s principal office is located in Duxbury Massachusetts.  Most of the firm’s business is centered in Duxbury and the affluent communities in and surrounding Boston.

The agency is licensed in approximately twenty states to serve the needs of its clients, insuring primary residences and vacation properties from Hawaii and The Rockies to The Gulf Coast and the coast of Maine.

In addition to its business activities, the Agency has actively supported the arts and numerous youth and civic groups.  The Doran Agency co-founded and financially underwrites the South Shore Bay Band, a non profit organization that has performed over 60 free outdoor summer band concerts since 1993 and donated thousands of dollars for college scholarships and public school music education programs.


We are licensed to transact insurance business in over twenty states, including Massachusetts, New York, Illinois, Florida, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Michigan, Georgia, Colorado, California, Idaho, and Washington D.C. This is not meant to serve as a solicitation in other states where we are not licensed.
