ABOUT

SOUTHERN TIER AGENCIES

"Operating an agency such as this, is becoming rare these days. It used to be common, particularly in this area."

- Thomas Butler, Real Estate Broker

Southern Tier Agencies - Olean, NY

Our History

In 1932 Samuel Ostrander was the founder and first president of the firm. He managed to get through the Great Depression and countless other troubles with a careful eye on clients' needs. His other eye was fixed squarely on the bottom line.

Family Owned Since 1949

Since then the realty/insurance firm moved a few times and eventually came under the ownership of Ed Butler, who joined the firm in 1949. His sons, Joseph, Dan and Tom now serve as key officers of the downtown business.

Still Family Operated

Now President Dan Butler credits his father as being the steadying force during the family's ownership. "Our biggest reason for surviving was our father's 48 years of service, especially in the 1970s recession. By then, the agency was in good financial condition."

Southern Tier Agencies has been serving the needs of consumers, organizations and businesses in Western New York since 1922. Our certified professionals provide the most effective services and products available.
