Ralph V. Ellis Insurance Agency

The William A. Smith & Son Insurance Agency purchased the Ralph V. Ellis Insurance Agency, located in Poughkeepsie NY, in 2009. They were a wholly owned subsidiary of William A.

We still operate in Dutchess County from offices in Poughkeepsie and Millbrook. In these offices, we offer; Home Insurance, Car Insurance, Renters Insurance, Business Insurance, Workers’ Compensation Insurance, Health Insurance, and many other types of insurance for businesses and individuals.

Additionally, in 2018 we purchased the client list of Mark Zeyher who resided in the Millbrook area. That business also operates as William A. Smith & Son, Inc. through our Dutchess County offices.
