History of 85 years of quality insurance service

Homestead Insurance Agency and its former owner, Robert ‘Rob’ Rapp, are part of a family insurance tradition dedicated to personal service for 85 years. In 1934, Rob’s grandfather, Sidney H. Lance, founded one of the first Medina County insurance agencies. The tradition of family ownership continued until the mid-1980’s, when the family sold its interest in its original agency. By that time, Rob was already operating the agency’s Brunswick insurance office which he subsequently purchased. That office became Homestead Insurance Agency which continues to the present day in honoring the family’s commitment to customer service.
