About A.L. Howes Insurance Agency, Inc.

Mr. Alvin Howes started his insurance agency in 1953 with a simple mission—to provide superior professional service and solutions to clients using collective experience and exceptional knowledge so that his Sykesville, MD and Carroll County neighbors and customers would enjoy greater protection of their lives and assets. In 1975, the agency moved home office to Main Street in Sykesville, MD, where it became a cornerstone of the business district.

Over the years, our agency has grown to acquire Insurance Partners, LLC, and expanded our presence throughout Maryland, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, and Virginia while continuing to operate on the founding vision of professionalism and personalized customer service.

We recognize that insurance is more than just a written piece of paper and proudly offer valuable advice and solutions that help our clients protect the things that matter most to them—their lives, businesses, families, and the assets they’ve spent a lifetime building.

About Insurance Partners, LLC

Insurance Partners, LLC was established in Towson, MD, in 2008. Since our founding, we have encouraged our team of knowledgeable advisors to find a way to improve a client’s insurance plan every time they review one. We don’t just quote what the client already has in terms of limits, deductibles, and coverage because we believe the right insurance product cannot be offered to a person or business without first understanding the needs of that person or organization.

As an independent, full-service insurance agency, it is is to our duty to work toward our clients’ best interests and provide you with the best service and the best coverage at the most affordable possible price. We take the time to explain to customers of their risks and exposures and how they can protect themselves. Allow us to custom design a policy to your individual needs.
