A relationship focused on your needs.

Your family, your business and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them.  Serving as your insurance advisor, we have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face.

At Loesel-Schaaf Insurance Agency, we provide multi-line insurance products and services.  Our clients range from individuals to families to small businesses and large corporations.  We love serving Erie, PA and throughout, but not limited to, the tri-state area.  This encompasses Eastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and Southwestern New York.

Our Mission

We have succeeded as a respected agency since 1925 and our mission is as true today as it was then.  We diligently maintain our position as a superior agency force by listening to our clients’ needs, utilizing leading edge strategies, and adapting our portfolio of products and services to meet changing market demands while continuing to bring value and deliver on our promises.

Our History

In 1925, we began as the George O. Loesel Insurance Agency and as we grew, George’s sons, Richard and “Gib” Loesel, joined the company.  As a result, our name evolved to the Loesel Insurance Agency.  Over time, the Agency became a staple of the Erie community and we’ve enjoyed steady, measured growth and expansion.  By 1981, we merged with Charles Schaaf’s 50-year-old agency and Loesel-Schaaf Insurance Agency was born.

“When my grandfather started out, the Agency was located on 7th Street in downtown Erie,” Chairman of the Board, Doug Loesel, reminisces.  By 1996 we relocated to our current home on West 12th Street near the airport.  “We actually have had to expand our physical space and now occupy the building next door.  The growth has been remarkable.”

We have used Loesel Schaaf for many years for our business and I have had family members call them for help. Always fast, courteous, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Heather, Darlene, Toni, Eric & Doug always take the time to answer questions and help when needed quickly. We have some ‘not so easy’ issues to deal with lately and they went out of their way to help. Don’t know what we would do without them! Thank you for the always excellent service. A business you can count on.

My husband and I have been incredibly satisfied and impressed with the type of service we have received from Loesel-Schaaf. We originally chose to switch our auto and homeowners insurance to Loesel- Schaaf when they were able to provide the same coverage for almost half the cost of the two other insurance companies we had worked with in the past. Unexpectedly within a year of switching to their company we had a significant homeowners claim and automobile claim. In both instances, all of our expenses were covered and handled in a prompt, efficient manner, including all possessions damaged in the flooding replaced and our totaled vehicle replaced with a brand new vehicle. This was largely due to the fact that we were wisely advised on the most advantageous coverage. Doreen, specifically, worked to make sure our benefit was optimized and even went above and beyond to arrange for an issue with a car rental company to be remedied. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone searching for insurance coverage. They practice with the utmost integrity and care for their clients.

We would highly recommend Loesel-Schaaf for your business or personal insurance needs. We have both commercial and personal lines of insurance through Loesel-Schaaf for many years. Their sales team across multiple product lines have been great. While our company is small, the professional and knowledgeable attention we have been shown has consistently been first rate.

I have been a Loesel-Schaaf client for several years, and have always received prompt and accurate responses to any request that I have sent to them. They have also helped many of our employees with the questions that I cannot answer- they have never hesitated to help!! Would highly recommend Loesel-Schaaf Insurance Agency to anyone.
