The agency was founded in 1995 and purchased by Derrick Clore, a former Vice President of banking, in 2010. At the time of purchase, the agency employed one part-time unlicensed staff member. Since that time the agency has grown dramatically. The agency moved into its current commercial office space in 2011 and employs five team members. In 2017 the agency opened a second location in Martinsville, Indiana.
The agency culture is one of personal investment in the communities we serve, our clients and each other. The agency is a recipient of Erie Insurance’s coveted “Giving Agency of the Year” award for Indiana. The agency’s non-profit choice as the recipient of this cash award was the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau. Additionally, the agency provides annual scholarships to seniors from each local high school in the communities it serves. Clore Insurance team members are highly involved in civic and philanthropic events and causes.

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, 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, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
