Meet Principal Agent, Robert Shafer

Robert Shafer established Shafer Insurance in 1992. He is proud of the trust he has gained from his local clients by not only providing quality protective solutions but through his hardworking demeanor and ongoing excellence in customer service. He is always happy to help with any insurance needs, whether it’s a new policy, updating a policy, or reporting a claim.

About Our Agency

Since 1992, Shafer Insurance Associates has been serving individuals, families, and businesses throughout West Virginia from our downtown, Main Street location in Summersville, WV.

Over the years we are proud to have held a reputation built on trust and exemplary customer service. We value the relationships we are able to build with our clients and work hard to provide them with the coverage that protects their biggest assets.

Because we’re independent, our clients are our top priority—not the insurance company. We can customize plans through a broad range of protective coverages and to present you with the right blend of price, coverage, and service.
