About DiFranco Insurance


Mike DiFranco, owner and principal agent at DiFranco Insurance and Financial

Mike Difranco

Owner and Principal Agent

A good friend offered me the perfect job during my college years and I became a licensed Nationwide Associate Agent on 4/13/1989. I’ve loved insurance ever since. After being with Nationwide Insurance exclusively for all these years I am excited to grow this agency with many different companies to work with and offer to my clients. We strive hard to be your knowledgeable insurance experts. If I am not at the office you can spot me biking on the road or in the woods.

Brian Adams, insurance agent at DiFranco Insurance and FinancialBrian Adams

Agent and Client Relations Specialist

I have been a lifelong resident of Northeast Ohio and chose to start my family here in 2015. I have an energetic son named Everett who reminds me every day to be a better person. I started my insurance career in 2017 and joined DiFranco Insurance in early 2019. I love working for Michael and his agency because their dedication to treating us and our customers with honesty and integrity is really something that inspires me. We share a strong belief in putting our customers and their families insurance needs first and foremost and giving them all the information so they can make informed decisions about their insurance.

Kailee Marion, insurance agent at DiFranco Insurance and FinancialKailee Marion

Agent and Client Relations Specialist

I was born and raised in Ohio and have continued to raise my family here as well. I have a 13 year old son who is into every sport possible. Football being his favorite. I started my career in insurance as a sales agent in 2016. Since then I have developed and learned all aspects of insurance from billing, servicing, and continuing to sell. I recently joined DiFranco Insurance and Financial and could not be happier. This agency prides itself on the true dedication to each and every customer and their individual needs for insurance. We make sure every customer understands what their insurance is for and how it is protecting their most important assets. We go the extra mile to keep our customers happy, up to date with new insurance information, and the best coverages for the best premiums. I look forward to continuing to grow my insurance career, knowledge, and place here with DiFranco Insurance.

Laurel DiFranco, insurance agent at DiFranco Insurance and FinancialLaurel DiFranco

Agent and Office Manager

In one capacity or another I have been a part of building DiFranco Insurance with Mike since 1998.  After taking time off to raise two daughters who are now in High School I have come back with renewed energy to help the agency grow. From customer service to sales, bill paying and payroll I feel like I have done it all.  This has enabled me to see how an insurance agency works from the inside out.   Insurance is growing in so many new ways and it is our commitment to you to make sure you are up to date on your needs.

Michelle McGrew, insurance agent at DiFranco Insurance and FinancialMichelle McGrew 

Agent and Client Relations Specialist

I have lived in Northeast Ohio my entire life and my husband and I love raising our 2 children in Ashtabula county.  After starting in the insurance industry in 2008, I wanted to work closer to my home and joined DiFranco Insurance in July of 2017.  I love working in the heart of Chardon and working with farm products.

I’m familiar with farm products inside and outside of work as we are horse owners and my daughter competes in rodeos.

I would love to help your family become part of our insurance family here at DiFranco Insurance.

Claudia DiFranco, of DiFranco Insurance and FinancialClaudia DiFranco 

Office Staff

After realizing that I could maximize time off and not get fired, I reluctantly joined my parents agency. Only to realize it’s been a pretty fun place to work and I am learning a lot of new things. This is my senior year of High School but I am at Lakeland Community College full time, starting my nursing degree. When I am not being the best big sister ever I can be found on a ski slope or volleyball court.

Office Staff

As the newest addition to DiFranco Insurance I am excited to change things up and bring new ideas. While I'm going to CSU for Civil Engineering I can also be found, on the playground, where I spent most of my days chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool. And all shooting b-ball outside of the school.
