About Our Agency

Providing clients with the right combination of price, protection and professionalism for 41 years.

Meet Our Team

In 1978, Carl N. Maranto, Sr. established C. N. Maranto Agency, Inc. to meet the insurance needs of families and businesses throughout Western New York. Over the last 41 years, our agency has grown into a full-service agency representing over 20 insurance carriers. After 25 years as the manager of personal lines, Joelle Maranto, Carl’s daughter, became partner and vice president at the agency in 2014, renewing our commitment to family ownership and beginning our transition to Maranto Agency, Inc.

We continue to grow our team and our offerings to provide excellence to our clients. Today, 9 employees serve over 4,000 individuals and 1,000 local businesses from our Williamsville, NY office. Our experienced agents and advisors incorporate the latest technology to ensure our clients receive the best coverage and personalized customer service. Each team member at Maranto Agency, Inc. aims to establish and maintain mutual trust with their clients, no matter what a client’s concerns are or how long they’ve trusted us with their insurance needs
