Home » About Our Agency

Your family, your business, and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance advisor.

An independent agency you can trust.

Seven decades of experience, multiple insurance partnerships, and the quality of care we have behind our company all work in your favor. We don’t sell any insurance policy to you unless it benefits you. Our main goal is to consult you and research options to find you the best insurance possible.

At Callis Insurance, we want to be your insurance agency of choice. We are an independent insurance agency with one priority—you. Because we represent multiple insurance companies, we have access to a variety of coverage options to bring you the best value when it comes to price, policy, and service.

Above all else, we take pride in putting your needs first while serving you with honesty and integrity. By taking a service-oriented approach to insurance, we go the extra mile to find the right coverage to ensure your peace of mind. Because protecting what matters most to you is what we’re here for.

Our customers matter to us.

As our customer, you will receive regular contact with our agents, ensuring that everything is going well with your accounts. Additionally, you receive a quarterly newsletter, annual checkups, and notification of any changes to your accounts. All accounts are continually monitored to guarantee that you don’t experience unexpected surprises.

Due to the nature of our agency, we can truly find you the best rates and policies for you or your business. If our agency can’t find what you’re looking for, we will refer you to another agency. We want you to have the best insurance possible.

A look back to where it all began.

Our insurance agency was founded in 1948 in Port Angeles, WA, by Gordon Sandison, a local resident and former Washington State Representative. The first insurance company appointment was in 1949 with the General Insurance Company of America, which is now a member of the Safeco Insurance companies. You can still see the original appointment certificate in our office hallway.

Almost three decades later, Gordon sold the agency to Steve Callis, who was working at the time as a commercial marketing rep with The Hartford and regularly calling on the agency. In 1977, the agency changed its name to Sandison & Callis Insurance. Gordon continued his political career with an appointment by President Jimmy Carter as the Director of the Washington Department of Fisheries.

In 1987, Steve Callis officially incorporated the agency and changed the name to Callis Insurance. That next year the agency moved into our location on the corner of 8th and Vine Street in Port Angeles, WA.

In 2010, the agency was acquired by Andy Callis, the current president of the agency and son of Steve Callis, turning the agency into a second-generation family-owned company. He acquired CJ Insurance Associates of Bremerton in 2014 to expand the current footprint in Kitsap County.
