Vision Stairways and Millwork has been working with The Southern Agency for the last three years. They have done a great job and I really appreciate how they watch out for my business success and bottom line. They are the experts with all of your insurance needs!

When Derek gave us a quote he thoroughly went over our coverage that we had for the past several years. He was able to show us how we were over insured on some things and under insured on others. We had been with the previous insurance company and agency for 15 years and they had never updated our policies. With the kind of personal service that Derek gives us, the money that he saved us is secondary to the service. I have recommended The Southern Agency to many companies that we do business with.

We switched to The Southern Agency having met Derek and his team at the Stair Builders & Manufacturers Association Conventions. We were 30 years with the other agent which did not provide the level of service and enthusiasm that Derek brings to his clients. He helped immensely to make the transition go smoothly. Thank You Derek!

These folks are value added agents that consistently have the clients best interest at heart. I would highly recommend this hardworking team!

Derek spent a lot of time with my business partner and I discussing our insurance needs in great detail. He stayed late to make sure we understood exactly what we were getting and what to expect. We highly recommend Derek and the Southern Agency. Justin Wolfe Nooga Strong Construction, LLC
