About Us

Macomber, Farr & Whitten is here to stay and here to help.

It takes an experienced agency to keep abreast of the latest changes and trends. Since the first day of business in 1848, Macomber, Farr & Whitten has done more than sell insurance.

About Macomber, Farr & Whitten:

For over three generations, Maine families and business people have found reassurance and comfort in the insurance services of Macomber, Farr & Whitten. Our steadfastness is represented by the fact that our address has not changed in over 150 years. If your grandparents came back to Augusta today, they would still find Macomber, Farr & Whitten watching over the Market Square of Augusta.

Should this impact your decisions about insurance? We think so. The true measure of an insurance policy can only be determined in times of trouble. Again and again, with client after client, we prove what’s been true since 1848: Macomber, Farr & Whitten is here to stay and here to help.

Community involvement:

Each and every day we appreciate the opportunity to work in the community where we live. It’s a source of pride within Macomber, Farr & Whitten that we have stayed in the downtown area through thick and thin.

Our roots in the community run deep, and in typical Maine fashion, we take our social responsibility seriously. We strive each year to show our dedication to the greater Augusta community with support for local projects and a tradition of promoting volunteerism within the company.

What Our Clients Say

Thank you, Lisa - for all that you have done and all that you continue to do. I will NEVER hesitate to send a client your way, and I will certainly never worry about whether or not they are in good hands.

- January M. Peavey

I wanted to thank you for assisting my grandparents with their business insurance. Your personal attentiveness as well as your attention to detail and hands on service was exceptional. Thank you very much for helping them to get the coverage they need at an affordable price.

- Tracy Bryant

The knowledge your office provides has made the experience positive for the customers I've sent to you. I want to express my sincere gratitude to you for all you do to make the process as stress free as possible.

- Darla Frost

I've always been a bit overwhelmed and hesitant when speaking to to insurance representatives for any type of insurance, but when I started working with Lisa concerning a side venture, all that changed. We ended up with coverage that far exceeded the 'other guys' and for a fraction of the cost. I would recommend her for any of you commercial insurance needs.

- Matthew J Hunt

Dear Peter, Thank you for your great service and care you have shown us. We will be getting our car back Thursday. It was actually a pleasure doing business with you and Macomber, Farr & Whitten… minus our car accident. Thanks again,

- J Walsh & J Sullivan

Peter, I appreciated your personal note that you sent. We have always received excellent service from your agency.

- Anita C.

Year after year, Lynn's insurance knowledge and situational awareness have enabled us to navigate complex changes to our employer sponsored health plan. Last renewal she spotted an overlooked, seemingly minor change in our group census that led to a 9% premium savings for the year.

- - Nathan C.

Working with Lynn has consistently resulted in insurance coverage that is affordable and cost effective. She is always focused on both our needs and resources while working tirelessly exploring all options.

- Thomas G. Warren

Reliable Service Since 1848

It used to be so simple. All an insurance agency had to do was offer a few different types of coverage: home, life, and eventually auto. Things hardly changed from year to year. Today, the world operates in a faster; more complicated manner. More is at stake. There’s a lot more to lose. Consequently, insurance is more complicated, too.
