  • We’re focused on the long term, and our interests are always aligned with those of our policy owners.
  • Our financial strength provides peace of mind now and in the future.
  • Since 1854, we’ve paid dividends every year.
  • We’ve been meeting our obligations for over 175 years, in good times and bad.

Whitt Insurance Agency has always gone above and beyond for my family. Anytime I have questions, it’s just a simple text or email and l always have an answer in no time. When our son was involved in a car accident they helped me every step of the way. Excellent customer service to say the least. I have recommended them in the past and will continue to do so!

I feel very fortunate to have Whitt Insurance Agency providing insurance for two businesses that I’m involved in. Multiple policies are required and the options can be confusing. Pruette has helped us find the appropriate coverage at the right price and continues to be proactive in seeking the best fit for us. I would highly recommend giving them a call for your insurance needs.

Whitt Insurance Agency truly is exceptional! They always go above and beyond! Anytime I’ve had questions, concerns/issues (like a crack in my windshield), or new needs they quickly respond and take time to ensure every question and need is met. They even set me up with an appointment to replace my cracked windshield. I can contact them anytime and know they will quickly respond. They are competent, friendly, knowledgeable, and experts. I fully trust them with any insurance need!

My partner and I have been working with Pruette from Whitt Insurance Agency for our small business liability insurance needs for going on 2 years now. I can’t say enough good things. Pruette makes the process easy, straightforward, and as if we’re family. Always quick to answer questions and available at the drop of a hat; I wouldn’t take my insurance needs anywhere else.

I love these folks. Pruette Whitt has been with me through thick and thin with car and homeowners insurance claims and he’s always been available day or night when things happened. I consider him a friend and a great insurance agent.

You just won’t find more dedicated Insurance Agents than the ones at Whitt Insurance. The service they provide is top notch and I always know they always find the best possible option for me. What impresses me most is that Pruette always shops for me prior to my renewal and has a better deal- without sacrificing coverage- ready for me before my policies lapse and without me ever asking. 10/10 recommendation!

I have used Whitt Insurance agency in my role as a board member / leader for our school’s parent / teacher organization. Pruette Whitt saved us so much money and was extremely responsive. He impressed me so much that I asked him to give us a quote on our personal insurance needs. Once again, he was quick to respond and saved us a significant amount on our premiums without sacrificing coverage. What really stood out is that he proactively compares rates for me ongoing. When it was time to renew my already great new rate, he researched options and again found us a better option – leaving me to make the choice between three great options. What a time and money saver! Highly, highly recommend! :)
