Years of commitment to our clients
Convenient Virginia location
Focused on providing excellent service

At Danaher Skewes & Associates, we are proud of our long engagement with the communities we serve. Our story began in 1963 when Thomas P. Danaher, Sr. established his own independent agency on Pollard Street in Arlington, offering multiple lines of coverage to the growing DC metropolitan area. Danaher Insurance relocated to Annandale in 1989. In 2006,  Ozzie Skewes and the Battlefield Insurance team joined our operation, followed by Randy Thomas and the Fredericksburg Insurance Group in 2007. Today, we are staffed by insurance professionals who live in the communities they serve.
