About Us

Matthew Cooper Insurance Agency, founded in 1954, is one of the oldest family owned independent insurance agencies on the north shore of Massachusetts. This second-generation family business is owned and operated by Barry Cooper, who joined the agency in 1986, and has continued on with the family tradition by providing quality affordable insurance products and superior personal service to local families, businesses and individuals.

Located in Revere, home of the nation’s oldest public beach, Matthew Cooper built the agency with the two basic principals of honesty and integrity and believed that “reputation was everything.”

He required his staff to always treat each and every customer with courtesy and respect while providing the highest quality service possible. His dedication to the customer’s specific insurance needs and his personal service has contributed to the long-lasting client relationships that we have today.


The agency was originally operated by Matthew Cooper from his home in the seaside town of Winthrop, Massachusetts before moving it to the neighboring city of Revere. The agency has experienced significant growth since its humble beginnings but has maintained the same level of service that was expected back in 1954 and is appreciated today.

In 2009, our agency was selected to become a member of the Satellite Agency Network, the leading alliance of independent insurance agencies in the Northeast with over 395 members writing more than $1.16 billion in combined written premium.

With access to over 45 top rated insurance companies, including 13 Massachusetts Auto Companies and 22 Homeowner Companies, we have more choices of insurance plans and programs than most agents in Massachusetts. Our agency has the unique ability to provide insurance quotes from multiple carriers so we can compare coverages and price to get you the best possible value.

Our dedicated staff has more than 55 years of combined industry experience to service your specific insurance needs. We are proud to be able to offer our customers the choice of companies of a large agency but also the personal service that only a small agency can provide.


As your local insurance agent, we are here for YOU:

  • NO 1-800 numbers that connect you to a different person every time.
  • NO insurance or Registry applications, forms or other paperwork mailed to you to complete on your own with no assistance.
  • NO pressure to choose your own coverage on-line without the assistance of an insurance professional to explain those coverages, available discounts and other options for protecting your valuable property.
  • NO fancy slogans or small, 4-legged creatures that promise you cheaper rates within minutes but never mention proper coverage.


We know that price is always a consideration when purchasing insurance, but making sure that you have the proper coverage is just as important. Some people think it doesn’t matter where they buy their insurance but this misconception could be costing them money, service and most importantly protection. Our goal is to get you the right coverage at the most competitive price while providing you with the individual personal service that you deserve.

What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn't have a choice! The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family's financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn't have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company. With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision. An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible. When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
