About Us

Smith-Reiss Agency was founded in 1928 by Kenneth C Smith in Canton near Aultman Hospital. He had previously worked as a jeweler and engraver.


After his son-in-law, Vernon H Reiss, left the military after WWII, he went to work at the agency after several years as a steelworker in Canton.  The agency relocated to the soutwest end of Canton.


In 1980, Vernon's son (and Kenneth's grandson) Eric J Reiss began working at the agency while attending the University of Akron.  The agency added many personal and commercial clients over the next 30 years.  A move to the Belden Village area in the late 1980s fueled further growth.  The agency currently serves around 6,000 personal and commercial clients through several high-quality insurance carriers.  Smith-Reiss Agency is one of the oldest family-owned agencies in Ohio.


The agency is an active member in the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, Jackson-Belden Chamber of Commerce, and the Professional Independent Insurance Agents Association of Ohio.

We are independent insurance agents.  As independent agents, we don't work for any one insurance company; we sell coverage from several different companies. This allows us to focus on providing you with the right amount of insurance and the right type of coverage for your needs.
