Greater Boston Independent Insurance Agents Since 1932

F.I. Patnode Insurance is an independent insurance agency serving clients from Brighton, the Greater Boston area and all of Massachusetts. As independent agents, we are not tied to any single insurance company. We have the ability to compare quotes across numerous companies to help find you the best policy while also offering competitive prices. Our services include: 

A Tradition of Service, Founded on Trust

In 1932, Forrest I. Patnode, an underwriter for Fidelity Mutual Insurance Company, decided to go into business for himself. He began representing a carefully selected group of financially sound, reputable A+ rated insurance companies, placing customers’ policies with the company that offered the best coverage at the most competitive price. 

Forrest’s son, Richard Patnode, took over the business in the late 1960s. He continued his father’s dedication to balance customers’ policies and pricing, and built the business to where it is today. 

Richard’s son, Jason Patnode, has been working with his dad for several years, creating a partnership that will carry the business into the future.

We believe in dedicating our resources and knowledge to each client to ensure we are creating insurance policies that protect against known and unknown risks. We believe in providing peace of mind.
