We have been working with Derek and his team at The Southern Agency for over two years now and are very pleased with the service and the coverage they have provided. The personal attention and their concern is much appreciated. I truly believe they have our companys best interest in mind when he reviews our needs and makes suggestions. We have had a small claim and it was handled quickly and efficiently! Doug Adams Florida Stairworks

My mom family and I had a very complex insurance problem and our new agent, Brandon, helped us get a positive solution. He went above and beyond to take care of us and to answer my questions. Best of all, he saved us a lot of money too!
