J.A. Sunderland Agency is a family owned business that believes in a professional and family friendly work environment. Based in Albuquerque, N.M. We have been providing insurance to New Mexico Families since 1949.
The Sunderland Family
George started cleaning the office at 11 years old and never left. When his parents passed away in 1998 he took over the family business and has been a pillar in the industry since. In his free time, George enjoys traveling with his wife, Loretta, and spending time with his grandchildren in the mountains. He also adores animals, especially his two dogs Quincy and Bella.
Like his father George, Phillip started cleaning the office at an early age. While he had other jobs in the meantime, Phillip came to work full time at the agency in 2006. As a seasoned insurance professional, he is a leader when it comes to industry knowledge. Phillip enjoys practicing Jiu Jitsu and camping with his family when he has free time and can often be found working out in his yard.
Natalie has also been working for the family agency for many years. She too started off cleaning the office, along with her brother, Phillip. When her grandmother passed away, she quickly assumed the accounting responsibilities and hasn’t looked back since. In her free time Natalie loves playing with her two sons and hanging out with her family at the lake or hiking in the mountains. She is known for her love of others, especially animals.

Working alongside her husband, Phillip, Ivy has gone through the ranks to become a staple for the business. In her free time Ivy enjoys riding horses, running, and planning trips with her family.
