Our History

The R.S. Gilmore Insurance Agency, Inc. was established in 1938 by Ralph S. Gilmore in a small office overlooking East Street in downtown North Attleboro.  From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be one of the largest family owned insurance agencies in Southeastern Massachusetts.

The hallmark of the agency has always been providing excellent customer service to our clients and giving back to our community we work in.

In 1961 after the untimely death of its founder Ralph S. Gilmore, Robert J. Gilmore and his brother Ralph A. Gilmore took over the ownership of the agency. They both ran a successful insurance agency but more importantly became pillars within the community for their involvement with numerous local charities and organizations.  Bob and Ralph continued to grow the agency with personal attention to their customers and representing exceptional insurance carriers.

In 1999, Timothy R. Gilmore became the third generation owner of the agency.   He continued the growth of the agency and community involvement his father and uncle established.  With the purchase of 27 Elm Street in North Attleboro, the agency committed itself to the downtown North Attleboro area.

In 2008, Michael Michel joined the agency and in 2012 became part owner of the agency.  Michael has concentrated on growing the commercial lines book of business for the agency.  He has also promoted Junior Golf with his 24 hours of golf he conducts every year.

Today over 80 years later, it has become one of the largest family owned insurance agencies in Southeastern Massachusetts.
