Insurance began in 1991, when Jack and Ellen Hays (both retired
teachers, Jack Sr. the Hall of Honor football coach and athletic
director, and Ellen the equally legendary first grade teacher) ventured
into business for themselves. The Agency was built on this trust
and knowledge of the founding individuals, both of whom are still
directly associated with the Agency.
Hays' son Jack bought the Agency in 2001, his main goal has
been to continue the tradition of care, fairness, and
personal attention that the Agency was founded upon.
As our motto says, we are "small-town, not small-time." We
like the feel of a small town, the visual contact with customers, and
being part of a community, but we are equally certain that in employing
us, you will get no less than the top tier of insurance companies
available. For example, we represent 6 of the top 10 auto
insurance companies in Texas!
