Company History

Robbins Insurance & Financial Services, Inc. takes pride in having provided Floridians with personal and commercial insurance for more than 20 years. From our humble beginnings in 1990, Charles Robbins founded the agency working out of a small office in Bradenton, FL. Coming from a banking background, Charles decided it was time to make a career change. Through hard work and dedication, Robbins Insurance & Financial Services, Inc. has grown from being an exclusive agent with Nationwide Insurance, to now representing more than 50 reputable companies.

One of the great things about Robbins Insurance & Financial Services, Inc. is that it is a family owned and operated agency. Charles' son, Stephen Robbins and his wife, Salina Robbins, came to work at the agency soon after graduating college. During this time they ran the daily operations and managed the office staff which prepared them to take over the agency upon Charles' retirement in 2008. Since then, they have expanded the building to allow for a larger staff, which will give the agency the ability to provide even greater customer service. Together they are committed to the principals of service and integrity and will continue to work hard to meet the insurance needs of their community.
