Our specialties include, Commercial Property Insurance, Contractor Insurance, Condo Building Insurance, Property Management Insurance, Real Estate Investor Insurance and Apartment & Condo Insurance.
The agency was founded in 1957 by one of the original Erie Insurance Agents in Maryland, Leonard Summers. His office was originally in the breezeway of his house in Boonsboro, Maryland where he was told by the Founder of Erie, H.O. Hirt, that when he was selling insurance door to door, he should get his head in the door instead of a foot in the door because when they tried to close the door, at least he could keep on talking. In 1985, Maurice Hanes, Leonard’s son-in-law, took over the agency in Boonsboro and proceeded to grow the agency exponentially by carrying on the tradition of Leonard and Erie Insurance by actively providing quality service at the lowest possible cost for policyholders.
In 1999, Summers & Hanes Insurance merged with Jerry Norris Insurance and Antietam Insurance Associates, Inc. was created. At that time, the agency moved from Boonsboro to Hagerstown MD. In 2003, Bryan Hanes, JD joined the agency as the third generation carrying on the insurance agency servicing the community since 1957. He brought with him the skill and experience from practicing law in Insurance Litigation and Stock Broker Misconduct Cases. Although Bryan is not practicing law in his capacity as President of Antietam Insurance Associates, Inc., he brings a wealth of experience to his work for his policyholders in handling their insurance needs.*
