Jim Echard began insuring valley residents in 1970. His son, Mark, joined the agency in 1983 while attending Bridgewater College. In 1996, Mark and his wife, Becky, assumed ownership of the agency. Mark is very familiar with the Shenandoah Valley having lived here all his life. Mark and Becky’s son, Andrew, started helping out in 2014 while attending Bridgewater College and niece, Kayla, joined the team in 2015. Andrew and Kayla obtained their property and casualty insurance licenses in December 2016.
Carey Hicks, also a licensed agent, has been with the agency since 2010 and lends a much appreciated outside perspective to the group. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service to our clients by identifying their specific insurance needs and finding the best products to satisfy those needs. Most insurance coverage is placed through Rockingham Insurance, a local mutual insurance company in operation for the benefit of policyholders and based in Harrisonburg.
