Unlike any other independent agency in town our agency was completely started from scratch in 1999. The owners, Darrell Elium and Angela Pipes, have a very unique insurance company background that has served to elevate our agency rapidly in the Rowan County marketplace. We are not a typical independent insurance agency. Our combined insurance company and agency background include over seventy seven years of experience. On our staff we have two CPCU’s (Charter Property and Casualty Underwriters) and two CIC’s (Certified Insurance Counselors).
We take our unique insurance company background experience, blend it with diverse and multiple insurance company representation and use that to develop personal and business insurance programs to meet our customer’s coverage needs and budgets. We have an annual Customer Appreciation Day event that really sets us apart and allows us to build long term relationships with our clients.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
