About Us

Pittsburgh InsuranceDavid Johnson is the principal of D. Johnson Insurance Agency. Dave attributes a strong background in sales management and marketing, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit to his success in the insurance business.

“In order to achieve my business goals, my focus is centered on relationship-building and dedication to my clients. My success as an agent is dependent upon clients choosing me over other agents. I work with my clients to ensure that they understand the range of products that are available and are best suited for their needs. New customers will feel confident in choosing my services because I will help them to thoroughly understand how insurance products can best meet their needs and still be cost-effective. In addition, I will always maintain my commitment to my customers to ensure repeat business and new referrals from existing policyholders. The service and support that I offer to my clients aligned with the unparalleled commitment of the insurance companies I represent are what separate my agency from all others.”

Specialization: Community Service
David Johnson has a passion for community service. Over the years, David has contributed and structured many fundraisers benefitting the Plum Borough community where he lives and the Penn Hills community where he works. His latest event was a 2013 summer food drive benefitting the Plum Borough Food Pantry. The food drive donated critical supplies and monies to the food pantry to stock the shelves for the “back to school” season. In 2012, his Halloween Party raised funding for the four local fire departments. In 2011, David hosted an Appreciation Day Luncheon for Plum Municipal Workers, and with a joint venture including many local businesses, was able to donate pet oxygen masks and stuffed animals to all the local fire and EMS departments. He held an event in 2010 that raised over $10,000 for the Plum and Penn Hills EMS which were used to purchase life-saving EMS equipment. In all events, the total has been over $25,000 of donated funds.

Other sponsored events have included a Penn Hills Police breakfast, an annual Thanksgiving Day dinner for all the Plum Borough EMS and the Plum Borough police department and, along with the Plum Chamber of Commerce, the annual “Breakfast with Santa” to help raise monies for the local school district library fund.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
