Steinhauser Insurance Agency Joins James & Sons
The Steinhauser Agency, Inc. joined James & Sons Insurance, part of the Home Savings Insurance Group, on July 1, 2018. Alan Steinhauser, President of The Steinhauser Agency, along with Janette Cole, Office Manager joined James & Sons, continuing to provide outstanding service and expanded opportunities for their clients.
“We are very happy that Alan and Janette are joining our agency,” said Tom Costello, James & Sons President. “As neighboring Boardman agencies, both with a long history of providing exceptional service to our clients, it just makes sense to continue that tradition together.”
The Steinhauser Insurance Agency was founded in 1939 by Alan Steinhauser’s father, Cyrill. After 49 years of sustained growth, the agency moved from the Home Savings and Loan Building in downtown Youngstown to 4305 Market Street in 1978. Alan joined the agency in 1980.
James & Sons, also a long time Valley insurance agency with a 97 year history of providing personalized service, was established in 1921 by C. Gilbert James. In January 2016, James & Sons was acquired by United Community Financial Corp., holding company for Home Savings Bank. The agency continues to do business as James & Sons under the Home Savings Insurance Group umbrella and the tradition of exceptional service continues.
Operating independently, James & Sons works with regional and national insurance companies offering coverage at the most competitive rates available. James & Sons offers a wide variety of insurance products for business and residential customers, which include, auto, homeowners, life-health, commercial, surety bonds, aviation and much more.

“With expanded options and same great reputation, our customers will benefit from the combined resources,” explained Alan Steinhauser. “There are no changes for our customers and even our phone numbers will remain the same.”
“This transaction is a natural step for the Home Savings Insurance Group and is consistent with Home Savings’ desire to expand its insurance agency business,” according to Home Savings President and CEO Gary Small.
The agencies are located just two blocks from the other on Market Street in Boardman. James & Sons is located at 4444 Market Street. Steinhauser employees will join them at that location in early July.
