Robert Stastny is Owner and Principal Agent of Stastny Insurance Agency. The agency is a multi-generational agency that prides itself on offering nothing less than exceptional service, hard work and diligence on behalf of its clients.
The agency began with Charles B. Stastny (1919-2002) in 1950. Charles had emigrated from Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, as a young man of only 19 years old. He enlisted in the US Army and served during World War II. After returning from the war, he met his future wife Mildred Picek and they were married in 1946. Together, they started an agency in their Highlandtown home on Clinton Street.
It was from those modest beginnings that the Charles B. Stastny Agency was born. Through Charles’ hard work and compassion for his clients, he grew his agency and set an example for his two sons, Robert and Richard. In 1975 Robert F. Stastny, having a true passion for the insurance business, started down the path to building his own agency. Robert, believing in the same ideas as his father — hard work, trust and honesty — was also successful in building an agency. In 1990, after 40 years in the business, Charles retired and Robert purchased his agency to form what is now The Stastny Insurance Agency.
