About Thill-Demerly Agency, Inc.

Thill-Demerly Agency, Inc. is an independent insurance agency located in the historic village of Lancaster, NY, 10 miles east of Buffalo, NY.

All employees are licensed in New York State and members of the Professional Insurance Agents association. We specialize in personal lines, such as Auto, Home, and Flood insurance. FEMA is currently studying how to re-zone the village area around our recently de-accredited levy.

Thill-Demerly began in 1932 with the partnership of realtor Paul Thill and his wife, independent insurance agent Agnes Demerly.

Meet Our Team

Dan KingManaging Partner
Daniel King’s affiliation with Thill-Demerly Agency was first as a customer. He was later hired in 1979 after graduating from SUNY Buffalo. He has obtained his NY State Agent and Life licenses. He and his family reside in Lancaster and are active members of Lord of Life Church where Dan heads the Technology Team. In 1998, Daniel King became the full owner upon the retirement of Cornelius Thill.

Dan likes to ask questions. He is very detailed oriented and likes to thoroughly understand. These are very good characteristics for the complicated issues involving insurance.

Brian’s enthusiasm, fun nature, quick-wittedness and knowledge have endeared him to Thill-Demerly customers. He is sharp, grasps key concepts, listens to customer needs, and then matches the most appropriate insurance program, coverages, limits and deductibles for the best solution.
