Insurance is often one of those necessary-yet-avoided topics of discussion. Its importance for family continuity and individual survival is paramount, but no one wants to voluntarily think of “the worst that can happen.” Sometimes it does happen and local communities can suffer incredible damage from natural and man-made disasters. It is for this reason you need representation that can build a connection, share this knowledge and offer resources in a way that dissolves doom and gloom scenarios and encourages you to see the positive benefits of insurance policies.
The Arthur D. Calfee Insurance Agency, Inc. demonstrates this empathetic capacity to connect with clients specifically in its community about policies and preparing for those surprise catastrophes. The agency offers home insurance, flood insurance, boat/yacht, auto/car insurance, disability and life insurance packages to meet the unique needs of the community.
A 2nd generation company solely family-run, the agency originated with founder Arthur from his home in 1980. He comes from a line of leaders; his name “Draper” originates from the Draper Family from Hopedale that was responsible for leading the industrial revolution in Massachusetts. They manufactured Looms, which distributed fabric for women internationally.
Art’s vision expanded beyond his home borders and he eventually began servicing over 3,000 clients in his immediate territory. It was this single-minded dedication to serving his community that endowed him with “Outstanding Citizen of Year” by the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce in 1997.
The agency is now well positioned with developed relationships in the industry, enabling the family team to offer its clients more competitive policies. The list includes Arbella, Safety, Encompass, Plymouth Rock, Travelers, Universal Property, Narragansett, ASI, Scottsdale, Lloyds of London and others.
Legacy is vital in a family-run business that serves its local region, and the insurance agency’s leadership principles have continued with Art’s son, Davidson, as President. He is a humble recipient of the “40 Under 40 Award.”

Just a few inches of water from a flood can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage. From 2008 to 2012, the average residential flood claim amounted to more than $38,000. Flood insurance is the best way to protect yourself from devastating financial loss.
Flood insurance is available to homeowners, renters, condo owners/renters, and commercial owners/renters. Costs vary depending on how much insurance is purchased, what it covers and the property's flood risk.
All policy forms provide coverage for buildings and contents. However, you might want to discuss insuring personal property with your agent, since contents coverage is optional. Typically, there's a 30-day waiting period from date of purchase before your policy goes into effect. That means now is the best time to buy flood insurance.
