WHITNEY H. RODDY, INC. WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1916 by John M. Roddy, my great grandfather, and had its beginnings as a small town insurance and real estate agency in the heart of a rapidly growing Essex County. My grandfather and father, Whitney H. Roddy, Sr. and Whitney H. Roddy, Jr., helped transform our office into a competitive force in the New Jersey insurance market. As the fourth generation at the helm and with the fifth set to take the reins we will continue to maintain the highest level of personalized and professional service that has characterized our agency throughout the years.
We pride ourselves in developing innovative solutions to meet our clients’ needs. Our strength lies in our ability to continually look forward to see where our industry is headed and to adjust our strategies accordingly to better serve the needs of our clientele while keeping in mind the need for the personal touch that has helped to build our reputation over the years.
I take great pride in the relationships we have developed with our current clients, truly appreciate your interest in our agency, and welcome the opportunity to service your insurance needs.
In efforts to replace what had become over the years a rather disappointing and extremely expensive home insurance policy, my wife and I began looking for a new provider of the service. In doing so, several friends recommend we contact Whitney. Within minutes of speaking with her for the first time we knew we were headed in the right direction. The depth of knowledge Whitney clearly posses regarding the home insurance alternatives available to families such as ours, coupled with the relaxed and easy nature with which she approached us, made our dialog both efficient and enjoyable. Add to this that the follow-up efforts she extended were not overly aggressive, as had been the case with multiple other insurance agents we have dealt with over the years, and within a very short period of time we were sold on Whitney. In short, we feel lucky to have found her and very much hope she will continue to be by our side going forward.

Delivering excellence in quality of service, I have had the pleasure to work with Whitney since 2013. Regardless of coverage (Home, Auto, Personal Liability, Fine Collections etc…), the Whitney Roddy Agency provides a wide selection of products and services to meet every request from vacation homes to mansions.

A year or so after, Hurricane Irene hit New Jersey. Although we did not incur any damage, I started to think “what if…” then I remembered a suggestion Jay had made about adding business interruption insurance. I remembered brushing it off thinking this is the NYC area; somehow I would be able to get to work. But soon after the storm, Jay was just touching base, and so that came up again. It was decided that we would look at that in the next renewal. Jay showed me that it would not cost much more than I was paying and it covered more than just storms. The peace of mind was well worth it. So that coverage was added in May of 2012.
Well, October 2012 saw Superstorm Sandy hit the NYC tristate area. We lost power for 4 days in New Jersey. There were gas lines. No public transportation. My employees could not get to work. The tristate area was shut down in a state of emergency. If ever there was a situation that could interrupt my business, this was it.
Jay helped me with the claim. My small company was just as important to Jay as his many larger customers.
The claim was settled rather quickly, considering and I was able to recoup the loss of income from the shutdown.
As a business owner, we sometimes think we have all the answers. I am glad Jay and his team took the time to give me the guidance I needed to make sure I had the right amount of coverage.

Jay Hall was there when we needed him most. When our house burned down, we were stunned, shocked, and absolutely lost. Jay Hall, and the folks at Whitney Roddy, made sure we quickly regained our footing — always serving as a caring and compassionate guide through a journey no one would ever want to make. Whenever we had the smallest question — we always had a comprehensive answer, swiftly delivered. When I needed someone to make sure we were getting everything we deserved from our Insurance Company — Jay was there to press on our behalf. You find out who your friends are when your house burns down — Jay Hall was not just our Insurance Agent — he was our friend.

Since we have changed our health insurance broker to Megan Hall at Whitney H. Roddy, Inc., the service has been outstanding and exceptional, notwithstanding Megan has been an asset to our company with her thorough knowledge of the health insurance industry. I highly recommend Megan and her firm for all your insurance needs.

I started to work with Megan the first year of the Healthcare Reform because my previous agent could not help me. She explained all the options which allowed me to find the best plan. She is remarkable, provides outstanding service (she contacted the health insurance company a few times when I had an issue), and always answers phone calls and emails within a few hours. Knowledgeable, smart and kind, a pleasure to work with.

Megan has been assisting us with our health benefits for the last several years. She delivers outstanding customer service and is spot on with consistently getting us the biggest bang for our buck. Always professional in handling and addressing our enrollments, terms and health benefit questions throughout the year. We could not have a better Health Benefits Broker!

When I was 12 years old I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder and was told that I would never be able to take out a life insurance policy. I met Megan Roddy Hall over 25 years later, and she felt that she could not only find me a life insurance policy, but one that would make a difference to my husband and child’s welfare should anything ever happen to me. I was very skeptical, but Megan was right. She was persistent, and found me a great policy at a great rate. Thanks, Megan!
