Our history and philosophies

Established in 1916 by Robert Bardwell, our company has grown to a full-service insurance agency. Currently, the Bardwell Bowlby & Karam Insurance Agency serves the insurance needs of over 7000 individuals and families, and the insurance needs of over 1500 commercial clients in Berkshire County, Western New York, and Southern Vermont.

We care about you!

Day-to-day, one-on-one, everyone at the agency makes it clear to every customer, every company representative, and every vendor that they are a valued part of the BB&K family. Simply put, we are fully invested in the professional and personal well-being of everyone we work with – not because of some overriding financial motivation, but because we genuinely care about people; as individuals, as parents, as homeowners, as business owners.

We establish a level of confidence and trust that builds and sustains long-term relationships. Our employees provide guidance and service that is nothing short of exceptional, whether you need auto insurance, homeowners, business insurance, investment guidance, or employee benefits.
