About Broadbent Insurance Inc.

History

Seeing the need for affordable and comprehensive insurance coverage for the residents and businesses of Newark, DE, and the nearby areas, Lawrence Broadbent established Broadbent Insurance in 1946. He believed that building relationships with his customers was key to providing invaluable service. The reputation of the company grew, and future generations of the Broadbent family soon followed him into the business, starting with his sons Dick and Ed.

Lisa Broadbent-DiOssi, Dick's eldest daughter, became the third-generation of the Broadbent family to begin selling Nationwide Insurance products. Her sister, Kim Broadbent, also joined the company.

Continuing the Tradition

Lisa Broadbent Insurance, Inc., is a third-generation, family-owned insurance agency that has built upon a stellar legacy. It is our mission to continue to meet the ever-changing insurance needs of our customers, which is why we will continue to offer Nationwide Insurance policies. We are also proud to say that reliability and honesty has always been a significant part of our customer service. You can be confident that you will only be offered solutions that work best for your situation, whether you require life or auto insurance.
