Meet the Team

John Young

President/Agent

I grew up in Redford, Michigan, and went to Redford Union High School. I’ve been in the insurance business for ten years. In the beginning, I worked for another agent for a short time, then I decided to open my own independent agency and partnered up with my sister, Christine, and later my old friend, Joe. I really like it when customers can tell that I really do care and that’s when the relationship transforms from client/agent to a partnership in building the right coverage for the client. That to me is gratifying!

I love doing anything outside in the summer, especially on the water! I used to travel a lot and loved it. My goal is to start taking adventure vacations with my wife. In my free time, when I’m not working, I love doing anything with family!

I’m very passionate about the Alzheimer’s Association because we’ve all lost someone we loved to this dreadful disease.

Joe Leduc

Owner/Agent

I grew up in Redford, Michigan. I have twenty years of experience in the insurance industry, which is ever-changing, and my job is to make sure you are covered correctly. It is always satisfying to save a family money on their rates and make sure they know what they are buying and how it benefits them!

I really enjoy spending time with my family and my new grandson. I also enjoy classic cars, golf, and traveling. I thoroughly enjoy detailing cars. In my time away from work, you can usually find me either out of town with my wife, seeing my grandson, or getting together with family and good friends.

Christine Douglas

Owner/CSR

I grew up in Redford, Michigan. I went to Redford Union High School and graduated in 1987. Insurance can be very confusing to many so it’s nice to know that I can help customers understand and feel confident. I have met a lot of good people that have come to trust that we, as an agency, have their best interests in mind. Most people when they come to our agency have no idea what their coverage means. I love that I can explain it to them and they leave feeling better about their insurance coverage and the security it gives.

When I’m not at work, I really enjoy spending time with my three daughters and three granddaughters. My guilty pleasure is shopping!

Larry Spears

Producer/IT

I have been in the insurance industry for about four years and my primary goal is to provide you with the coverage you need at an affordable price!

I was raised in Waterford, Michigan. When I’m not at work, I like to keep myself busy with cooking, outdoors, and trying new whiskeys. Drummond Island, Michigan is my favorite vacation spot.

Shannon Lee Young

Agent

I’ve been in the insurance business for nine years. I have met so many wonderful people who have become not only my customers but my friends too. My customers excite me – I love talking with them and getting to know them! I want to help them save money and I also want to help them understand insurance.
I grew up in Redford Township, Michigan, and went to Redford Union High School.  In my free time, I enjoy doing puzzles – I love a 1000 piece puzzle! My guilty pleasure is drinking wine and my favorite place is home. I enjoy having friends and family over and playing games.

Kelly Glander

Producer/Agent

I grew up in Redford, Michigan, and spent most of my adult life in Oakland County. I have twenty-six years of experience in the exciting world of insurance. I have done everything from being a receptionist to being a personal lines account manager/office manager and finally found myself in commercial lines as an account manager/producer. It really excites me to be able to educate my clients on the proper coverages to protect the things they have worked so hard for and I love the relationships that I have developed over the years with my clients; they often end up becoming my friends.

In my time away from work, I love to sing – I am a singer, and my husband and I have been performing together for many years. Aside from that, I love to spend any extra time with my grandchildren. I am also passionate about Foster Closet of Oakland County and any charity that helps the developmentally disabled.

Charlee

I grew up in Waterford Township, Michigan. I love meeting all the people that come into our office. I think I make everyone feel happy and I get lots of attention. I love going for long walks and playing with my toys. My guilty pleasure is my treats! I love to go for car rides, going on the boat, and seeing all my friends in the neighborhood when going for walks!

Joe took the time to see if he could meet my needs despite my being a low end customer.

Shannon is the Best. Make sure you call "Young Insurance" because she use to work for Look Insurance but after she branched out and away from Look, they took her telephone number away and if you call that number a snotty guy will answer and won't give you any information on how to get in contact with Shannon. He seems that he doesn't like the fact that she is doing very well and offers a better insurance rate. So keep that in mind when looking her up.

Best of the best. Shannon is a gem that has gone above and beyond for my wife Lori West over the years. She just helped me get the best priced policy and is so very pleasant to work with. Larry also spoke with me and helped with our concerns. A. Young is by far the best. Thank you!

The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful and always takes the time to help me with my problem. I highly recommend them.I had occasion to change over my home insurance to A.Young Agency, and once again I was met with exceptional service by Joe LeDuc and Christine the office manager. They make one feel like they are family and go above and beyond to make one’s experience easy and stress-free. I highly recommend them.

I absolutely love this insurance company! They always call when there's a better deal available to save me money! This company keeps in touch and cares about their customers and even remembers my birthday and sends a birthday card! If there's a problem with the account they're quick to investigate. They always have a solution! Thank you A Young I love all of you! Even though the pandemic has been hard on my family you always know how to make me smile! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Everything we buy in life has three parts to it.Service, price and quality. Normally, one can only expect two out of three. Very rarely do you ever get the total package. A Young Insurance is an insurance company~ that has excellent service , excellent quality and excellent prices! 10 🌠
