Agency History

Agency History

Hankoff Insurance Group is currently owned & operated by Steve Hankoff who is the 3rd generation of his family to perpetuate the agency. Hankoff Insurance Group began its insurance roots as Fred A. Hart Co, Inc., an independent agency specializing in insurance policies for taxi cab and real estate owners. The agency expanded into Personal Lines and General Commercial Insurance in the 1950s as Fred Hart's son-in-law, Joseph "Jerry" Hankoff, joined the firm. Jerry had come from a life insurance background working for Prudential after WWII. In the mid 1960s Jerry took over the agency and changed the name to Hankoff & Co, Inc.

In the summer of 1979, Jerry was diagnosed with a 99% blockage in his pulmonary artery the week that his son Steve was graduating from the University of Maryland. Jerry had successful bypass surgery and was able to resume operations at the agency late in the fall. During that time Steve went to a graduate program in insurance at East Texas State University to qualify for his insurance license and learn the family business. Steve & his dad Jerry worked side by side together until 1990, when Steve formed Hankoff Insurance Group, Inc. to further perpetuate the agency so Jerry could retire and move to Florida. Steve brought in several seasoned agents from other firms and has grown the agency three-fold in his tenure. In April of 2014, Steve's oldest son Brad joined the agency to bring it to its fourth generation.
