Is it important that your auto insurance company has an office in your town?

It is the first time that I am buying auto insurance, and I am not sure which company to choose.I am considering to buy Amica Mutual insurance.

No, strictly speaking it's not important... but it can be helpful, especially if you've never bought a policy before. I found it was much easier to talk to someone in person rather than over the phone when I was trying to decide how much coverage I needed.
