Local Allstate Agency: Meet The Marcus Agency

When you need help choosing the right insurance products and services to protect the people and possessions you care about, you need personalized attention from someone who treats you like family. We opened our first agency in 2011 so customers in the Vestavia Hills area can get outstanding service while protecting the things that are important to them. After seeing how much we could positively affect the community, we opened a second office here in Birmingham in 2016.

We are a community-focused agency and love making a difference in the greater Birmingham area. Our staff is challenged to choose their own nonprofit and spend time on the clock to support their efforts. Throughout the years, we have supported Temple Emanu-El, Levite Jewish Community Center, Holy Family Cristo Rey Catholic High School, the City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services, Adaptive Aquatics, Collat Jewish Family Services, Mike Slive Foundation, United Way of Central Alabama and the University of Missouri Alumni Association.

In 2019, our agency started the Birmingham Barons’ “Seventh Inning Wave” tradition for patients at the Children's Hospital of Alabama. I also serve as a member of Birmingham Sunrise Rotary Club, Vestavia Hills Chamber of Commerce, Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce and the Birmingham Business Alliance.

Find us on the corner of Montclair Road and Morningside Drive, in the same building as the U.S. Post Office. We look forward to meeting you!
