Local Allstate Agent: Meet Michael Short

As the third generation in my family to work with Allstate, I am fortunate to have exceptional role models who showed me the value that insurance provides in challenging situations as well as the importance of always acting with integrity.

I got my own start in the insurance business when I worked at my father's agency as a student at West Morris High School. After graduating from the University of Scranton, I volunteered in Brooklyn and also worked as a high school administrator in Scranton for several years before joining my father in his Long Valley agency in 2003. Knowing the relationships that he had built with customers over the years and how he helped them through tough times while also building friendships, coming home to work with my father in Long Valley made perfect sense. In 2008, I purchased the agency from my father and gave him the opportunity to begin his much-deserved retirement.

I am proud to call Morris County home. From Schooley’s Mountain Park to Patriot’s Path, this is such a beautiful area with wonderful people. New Jersey is a great place for my wife and me to raise our young son, and we love spending time together on the beaches, golf courses, and ski slopes right here in the Garden State. I stay active in the community as a member of the Long Valley Village Association, and I’m a proud supporter of the West Morris Central athletic teams. I am honored to give back to the community that has given me so much through sponsorships including the Washington Township Historical Society, the Action for Distraction Run/Walk (to benefit the Goryeb Children's Hospital), Alex's Lemonade Stand and more.

With the Short Family Agency, you’ll experience the personalized service that comes with a family-run business. Whether you need auto, home, and life insurance or are looking to start saving for college or retirement, my team and are I here to help you choose what works best in your life. We look forward to getting to know you and hope you’ll stop by today. We are right next to the Sunoco gas station on East Mill Road!

Local events & news

Someone Special Needs You

Helping people is at the core of what we, which is why we’re happy to support Someone Special Needs You through lending our time to back their cause. Because of our volunteerism, The Allstate Foundation provided Someone Special Needs You with a $20,000 grant to aid its efforts of providing social activities for children with special needs. Our team recognizes the challenges facing people in and around New Jersey, and we’re glad to be among many Allstate volunteers across the country caring for their communities by supporting important local causes.

New Horizons in Autism Receives Allstate Foundation Grant

As volunteers with New Horizons in Autism, our team recently helped the organization qualify for a $20,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant. The grant supports New Horizons’ efforts to help people become more knowledgeable about autism. We see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area, which is why we support New Horizons’ work. We are proud to be one of thousands of Allstate agencies around the country that care for their communities by supporting important local causes.

Renters and Water Damage

If a pipe bursts in the home you're renting, your personal property may suffer the consequences. But a renters insurance policy may help protect you from losses to personal property in incidences such as this — and give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing safeguards are in place if things get soggy.
