About Us

It was 1931 when Myron Briggs planted the roots of the agency at 15 East Locust St in Canton. In 1942, Cecile Weaver began employment as a secretary for Myron Briggs and in 1953, she and her husband Carl Watson bought into the agency and formed Briggs and Watson Insurance. Mr. Briggs retired in 1964 and Watson moved to its current location at 50 West Pine St. In 1969 Milton E. “Mike” Hasty purchased the agency and it became Watson-Hasty Agency. In 1978 Mike Incorporated and called it Hasty Associates Insurance Agency, Inc. Two years later, Mike and Gene Sanders created a partnership of their two agencies with the name Sanders-Hasty Insurance Agency.

Upon Gene Sanders retirement in 1995 Craig Zilly joined the agency as Mike’s partner and Carolyn Jacobus partnered with Craig a year later. In Jan of 2008 Carolyn retired and Craig formed Sanders-Hasty Insurance Agency, Inc.

In the summer of 2015, the Sanders-Hasty Insurance Agency merged with the Bartonville Insurance Agency. This merger allowed both agencies access to additional companies and introduced Mike Vollmer and Sharon Phelps to our staff. Together, Mike and Sharon brought over 75 years of professional insurance experience into our office.

Since our inception, we have represented many companies, but Pekin Insurance has the longest tenure with over 90 years with our agency. Auto-Owners has been represented for over 25 years, as well as maintaining a longstanding relationship with Progressive Insurance. Sanders-Hasty is proud of their association with these fine companies, as they are all quartered in the Midwest and understand the needs of their insureds. 

We want to remind you that we write more than just Property and Casualty Insurance. Life insurance is also an important part of our business. As an Independent agency, Sanders-Hasty represents several companies offering life, annuities, Medicare Supplements, Aflac and various strategies to provide for retirement.
