Brown, Seligman & Thomas Insurance (known to our friends, and customers alike, as “BS&T”) traces its roots back to the 1920's, beginning first in Santa Rosa, a small rural town in eastern New Mexico. The IIANM recognizes us as the oldest home owned independent insurance agency in the state of NM. Sam Brown purchased the insurance agency in 1964 and later sold it to Chuck Brown, who moved its headquarters to Albuquerque, NM. Following the acquisition of another local firm in 1995, the company's name was changed to Brown, Seligman & Thomas. Matt Chavez and Chuck Lujan acquired the agency in 2012 from Chuck Brown. Soon thereafter they acquired a small agency in Peralta, NM. The home owned independence continues today in two locations.
We've never forgotten the importance of personal relationships and trust, when it comes to handling the insurance needs of our clients. That's why your insurance advisor is a licensed insurance agent, and why each of our valued clients has not only an assigned agent, but a full time in-office service agent as well. Our small town roots continue to guide our basic customer relationship philosophies as we move aggressively into the future.
