Serving New Mexico for More than 50 Years


Founded in 1963 as the first independent insurance agency in Los Alamos, The Jemez Agency remains the largest independently owned and operated insurance agency in Los Alamos. In May of 2000 the devastating Cerro Grande fire roared through Los Alamos destroying more than 400 homes. The Jemez Agency insured more than 200 of those homes. Through hard work and long hours, The Jemez Agency helped those families put their lives and homes back together.

In March of 2001, Allen McQuiston became part owner of The Jemez Agency and today is the sole owner of the agency.

In 2004, The Jemez Agency opened an office in Santa Fe to serve the residents and businesses of the community and the surrounding area.

Today, The Jemez Agency is helping individuals and businesses protect what matters most. As an independent insurance agent, we are able to obtain insurance from multiple insurance companies. This allows us to find the right insurance that fits your needs and budget. As a local agent, we are available to sit down with our clients to discuss their needs and concerns. Our goal is to protect you, your loved ones and your assets from financial harm.

Our approach is tailored to help you obtain the coverage that fits your individual needs. We are here to help educate and guide you through any insurance question, problem or claim you encounter.
