Levitt-Fuirst Associates Ltd
Levitt-Fuirst was founded by V. David Levitt (1936- 2006) and Aian J. Fuirst (Retired). David and Alan each joined their fathers’ respective insurance businesses, following graduation from NYU Law School. In
1969, they combined their offices and formed Levitt-Fuirst Associates, Ltd. in Mt. Vernon, NY.
The firm is one of New York's most respected middle market independent insurance agencies. Clients range from large worldwide manufacturers to local businesses, each with their own unique insurance needs. To accommodate growth, Levitt-Fuirst moved to Eastchester, NY, and then to its current location in Yonkers.
In the early 1990's, Levitt-Fuirst began adding a new generation of management. Ken Fuirst and Darryl Friedricks joined the firm, followed by Jason Schiciano and Anthony Basciano. The four helped to broaden the reach of Levitt-Fuirst and drove the quadrupling of the premium volume. In order to support long-time and new customers alike, the firm has assembled an experienced, reliable customer service team, who understand the importance of personal service and attention-to-detail. Our goal is to address your insurance needs and issues promptly, pleasantly, and thoroughly, so that you can address other important areas of your personal and business life.
During this time Levitt-Fuirst developed a significant specialty in insuring the personal insurance needs of high net worth families and Family Offices and has become one of the leading insurance brokers in this field. Accountants and lawyers continue to refer business to them because of the unique services they provide their clients, some of which are not offered by any other insurance brokers.
The firm’s recent growth has also been managed by continuous improvement efforts. Streamlined processes and upgrades to the latest insurance industry technologies allow Levitt-Fuirst's 46 employees to maximize service capabilities to valued customers. Weekly customer service meetings insure that all of our departments are aware of the status and current needs of each policy-holder.
The insurance industry has been subjected to volatile conditions during the last few years; however, Levitt-Fuirst remains secure and stable with dedicated employees that provide a broad array of insurance products to a diverse group of loyal customers. Our customers can count on us today, and tomorrow, just as they have for the last half-century.
