Braishfield was founded and established in 1984 in New York, New York. Braishfield offices opened in Clifton, NJ, Boston, Mass. and Philadelphia, PA. in 1986. In a few short years, an impressive client list was established comprised of Fortune 500, international and middle market businesses. Braishfield represented all major insurance markets and offered a viable alternative to the “alphabet houses” which dominated the market in the late 1980s. We have expanded into other states and product lines over the past 32 years. Our business is written exclusively through retail independent agents, brokers, and exclusive Allstate agents. We are headquartered in Orlando, Florida, and have the ability to provide service and write business throughout all 50 states. Our company has grown as a result of a results-oriented and entrepreneurial culture that focuses on providing exceptional customer service to our clients. Maintaining excellent relationships with carriers enables us to provide our clients with a one-stop solution for their insurance needs.
