Our team is committed to maintaining the highest standard of excellence in all that we do and to establish a firm relationship of mutual trust and service with each of our clients.

The Mills & Mills Agency was established in 1953 by Robert J. Mills and William C. Mills, Jr. By 1981 Robert (Bob) Mills Jr. also joined the agency and ultimately took over in 1991. Under Bob’s management the agency grew into a full service insurance agency providing support for both Personal Insurance and Commercial Insurance needs. In January of 2017 Bob merged Mills & Mills with the Daigle & Travers Insurance Agency (Darien CT) to provide even greater value for his clients by leveraging the additional carrier choices, policy options and robust service team.

Our agency serves clients throughout Connecticut and Metropolitan New York City. We are also licensed in 25 other states including all of New England, Florida, Pennsylvania, Colorado, California, Texas and the Carolinas. The Mills & Mills Agency is a division of Daigle & Travers Insurance Agency, LLC.
