About Our Company

The year was 1887. . .

Atlanta was the bustling hub of the new South. It was a busy, optimistic time, and Manry & Heston had just opened with a focus on servicing the expanding insurance needs of a burgeoning Atlanta economy.

Now in our third century. . .

We are Atlanta’s oldest full-line insurance agency, and rank in the top one percent of all insurance agencies in the U.S. Our remarkable record of stability and success is due to our philosophy of commitment to service.

Today. . .

Manry & Heston is committed to the perpetuation of the ideals that have set us apart for these many years — Service, Experience and Integrity.
