We provide a full range of commercial and personalinsurance services. Because we are an independent agency that represents a broad range of national, regional and international insurance companies, we are able to provide a wide range of solutions and put our client’s best interests first.

Many companies can “sell” you insurance. But what happens after that? At Clarke & Sampson, insurance is just the beginning. Our team’s ongoing attention, experienced guidance, and responsiveness to your needs make all the difference. And don’t just take our word for it; read what our customers say about us!

No business is too big or too small for Clarke & Sampson. Each client is equally important, and we are excited to offer a full range of products and outstanding service to every one of our customers. Our agents can review your current coverage, offer experienced advice, and recommend the right products for you while offering a highly personal level of service. 

Our History

Clarke & Sampson was originally established as the F.W. Clarke Company in 1946 in historic Old Town Alexandria, VA. A few years later, Everette R. Clarke and Jack Sampson joined the firm, and the company became Clarke & Sampson, Inc. At that time, Clarke & Sampson served as a local insurance agency primarily providing home and auto insurance. Now, in addition to our personal and commercial products, we offer insurance for political organizations, trade unions, nonprofits, and more. 

Staying true to our core principles of trust and integrity, Clarke & Sampson now serves clients in all 50 states and internationally. As a third-generation independent insurance and real estate agency, we take great pride in our stellar customer service, commitment to our community, and the respect we have earned over our 70 years of service—including being named “Business of the Year” by the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.

At Clarke & Sampson, we maintain a clear vision of who we are and where we are going. Maintaining our independence while so many other insurances agencies have been sold to large national agencies or banks demonstrates our commitment to our clients. We look forward to building a relationship with you by ensuring your property and businesses are in good hands.
