Griffin-Owens Insurance Specialists, LLC

Our history

Griffin-Owens and Associates has been serving the needs of families and businesses in the Herndon, Reston and Sterling areas since 1981. Christian Griffin founded the agency as a scratch agent for Nationwide Insurance company. Entering a male dominated industry at that time she was one of the few female agents with the company. She was joined by her partner, Don Owens in 1983. The combination of Chris and Don proved to be the right recipe to build one of the most successful agencies in Nationwide Insurance history. In 1988 John Griffin joined the agency as an Associate Agent. By 1989 the agency had achieved their first Presidents Conference award. Presidents Conference is an award given only to the very best agents in the company. Only 1%-2% of agents earn Presidents Conference each year, Griffin-Owens and Associates has earned Presidents Conference every year since 1989, making the agency a part of the elite Hall of Fame for Nationwide Insurance Company. The secret to their success lies in the underlying philosophy that has guided the agency from the beginning. The Golden Rule has been that guiding philosophy and it has never let us down. When ever we are faced with a question about what we should do we always ask ourselves, "What is best for our clients?". Once we determine the best course of action for our clients we know that we have found the best course of action for the agency.
