About the agency

Established in 1987, O’Rourke Insurance Agency, Inc is an independent Agency located in the center of Whitman, Massachusetts.  Originally opened and founded by Gale (O’Rourke) Varraso, now run by her son Ryan O’Rourke.  We offer the personal service that is expected from a small town business. O’Rourke Insurance has been a big part of the community in sponsoring local town sport teams and donating to many local charities.  

O’Rourke Insurance Agency, Inc. writes for many major insurance companies such as Hanover Insurance, Hingham Insurance, Safety Insurance, Foremost Insurance, and many others.  Due to writing for many companies we can offer competitive rates and find the best company that fits our insured’s needs.
