Who We Are

At Akin & Akin, we know that customers often focus on price first and coverage second. It's our job to help them understand why their coverage matters so they can effectively protect their homes, families, and businesses. We deal with them honestly and fairly, working to get them the best price, while always focusing on providing the best coverage. Our customers have come to expect nothing less than the best from us.

We get to know our customers on a personal level. Those who work with us stay for years. When we don't earn someone's business right away, they often come back a year or two later because they've been treated badly elsewhere, and they know that we'll take care of them. Akin & Akin Insurance is known for the value we provide and the way we treat our customers — like family.

Over the past 80 years (and counting!) we've become a part of the fabric of our community. The Akin name has been synonymous with trust and protection since we first opened our doors, and we look forward to the relationships that we continue to build each and every day.

Our Story

When Robert Akin opened Akin & Akin back in 1938, he wanted to help people insure what mattered to them. Over the next 80 years, we would grow to help even more people across the area. While we're located in Howell, Michigan, our company serves customers in Howell, Brighton, Fowlerville, Cohoctah, Green Oak, Gregory, Hamburg, Pinckney, Unadilla, and the entire Livingston County area.

Akin & Akin Insurance is a multi-generational family business. Currently, Dwight Akin is our President, and Kathy Akin serves as Vice president. But you don't have to be named Akin to be considered family here. Each member of our amazing and hard working team is part of the Akin & Akin family, as are our customers. Treating people like a family and helping them take care of what matters is a big reason why we've lasted so many years, and why we'll continue to serve our community for many more years to come.
