Van Helden Agencies
224 15 Avenue SW
If you are looking for home, business, or oil & gas insurance, Van Helden has many decades of experience with providing quality coverage to discerning Calgarians.
Ray Van Helden, grandfather of company president Douglas Van Helden, was in the insurance business since the 1930?s before starting his own brokerage in 1950. For three generations, our independent brokerage has strived for exceptional service, strong company representation, insurance claims advocacy, and price competitiveness.
Our brokerage has been quoted by one of our longest standing clients, Victor and Margaret Bibby, who have been clients since the 1930?s, ?We have dealt with the Van Heldens for three generations. Every time we?ve had a personal visit, or telephone conversation, we have felt as if we were dealing with close, honest friends. Our daughter once left Van Helden Agencies, only to come back for the superior service.?
The main strengths include having an exceptional team of employees that are energetic and experienced in being able to handle the complexities of a brokerage firm, and the loyalty of our clients, many of whom have been with us for decades. We boast of one of the most experienced teams in the country.
The Van Helden Agencies Ltd. name has been very respected in the insurance industry and community for over 65 years. Our brokerage has been quoted by John McArthur, President of Safeco Insurance (1990) as ?The best insurance agency in Canada.?
