About Us

Mother, father, son and daughter stand outside with a dogWe are a family living in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. I own a couple of businesses, and my wife is a full-time mom, business partner and my best friend. We are so thankful to be blessed with a son named Paul and a daughter named Victoria.
I started in the insurance business in 1996, and most of our 4,500-plus members come to us by WORD OF MOUTH.  
It has always been my practice to treat my clients as I would hope an insurance agent would treat my family if I were not in the business and dependent on someone else's knowledge.  This has proven to work extremely well based on the number of referrals that come to us every week!!
We would love the opportunity to EARN your TRUST and your business. Why not simply email or give us a call (828.648.9984 or 866.695.2486) so we can set up a time to meet individually at your convenience. 
REFERRALS are our bread and butter, so if we have ever been of assistance to you, then please PASS A GOOD WORD ON TO OTHERS ABOUT US. Also, please like us on Facebook.
We would love to hear from you!!













“When you first came to my door, I thought I was not interested in anything you had to offer. But I’m glad I was willing to at least listen because now I have much better insurance coverage for far less money thanks to your insights. It sure pays to be open minded.” --Mary M.
