Agency founder, Mark McArdle, started his insurance career in 1978 as a Claims Adjuster with Erie Insurance. Mark later became a Branch Sales Manager and Assistant Vice President with Erie before opening The McArdle Agency in Columbia in 1987. Mark is a lifelong Maryland resident and graduate of The University of Maryland. Mark holds the CPCU designation, the leading professional designation for the insurance industry. He also holds the Certified Insurance Counselor designation. Mark is an active member of the Columbia Business Community. Mark is proud to see Brendan and Kristen become second generation owners of the business he has built. Mark attributes his success to a lesson he learned on his first day with Erie in 1978, "Abide by Erie's Golden Rule . . . to treat others as you yourself would like to be treated".
When you have a serious auto accident, house fire, burglary, etc., the last thing you need are hassles from an unresponsive claims adjuster. The quality of service by an agent or adjuster (and attitude towards customers) may not seem important when you buy a policy . . . but it is important when you have a claim.
Since 1978, leading consumer magazines have rated Erie with A+ ratings. At McArdle Insurance Agency, we'll prove these top ratings are justified. Call Mark, Brendan, Kristen, Pam, Toni, or Rosemarie. We'll provide low rates with a helpful, courteous attitude.
