About Our Agency


Lesemann Insurance Agency, LLC has been family owned and operated since 1936. Originally founded by Arvid R. Lesemann, Sr, as Arvid R. Lesemann Real Estate and Insurance, the agency began primarily focused on the sales of real estate with insurance as an accommodation. Mr. Lesemann had previously worked for Metropolitan Life Insurance Company as a debit salesman during the Great Depression. In 1964 Bessie S Lesemann, Mr. Lesemann’s wife, joined the agency as a partner, and she concentrated on the sales of automobile and homeowners insurance, while Mr. Lesemann continued to concentrate on the sales of real state. In 1976 William F. Lesemann joined the agency after extensive training with Aetna Life & Casualty. Bill then began concentrating on the sales of commercial property & liability insurance and life and health insurance. Into the 1980’s the agency began concentrating more on insurance sales, and the need for a brand resulted in the name of Lesemann Insurance Agency and later Lesemann Insurance Agency, LLC. Lesemann Insurance Agency, LLC has been proudly serving the insurance needs of Greater Charleston residents and businesses for the past 76 years with office locations in Charleston and Summerville, South Carolina.
