Preferred Insurance Center understands that our community is vital, not only to our business, but our children, our homes, our schools and our lives.  We are blessed to be where we are and we truly desire to make a difference in our neighborhood and world.


First, we decided to make 2012 the year of giving back.

It was our way of saying “thank you” for the 100 years the community had given us.

We started Quotes4Causes. It’s simple.  Every time we quote a policy for someone, we give $10 to a local charity.

We also started Flamingo Flocking, which is a whole story to itself and getting involved in a lot more charitable activities.

The most amazing thing about all this is the effect it has had on Preferred Insurance Center.  We started to have a new spirit and enthusiasm.  We are working with a greater purpose.  It has made us all better people and a better agency.

Going Forth With a New Purpose!

With our new purpose and enthusiasm, we suddenly started growing faster and hiring people. We changed our marketing focus to social media like Facebook and Twitter. We wanted work to be fun and fun for you to work with, so we started having contest and prizes. It seems to be working!

We’ve grown from five employees to eleven and raised over $50,000 for local charities. God has been very good to Preferred Insurance Center.

Striving to be better!

We have changed our renewal process drastically. Every year, around the time of your homeowner renewal, someone from our staff will give you a call. We are going to offer you a chance to completely review of your coverages.

The awards are numbered plaques which are passed from one person to another as a way of saying thank-you to someone who has made a difference.  Each time the award is passed on the giver explains why they have chosen to give the award to the person they are passing it on to.

We try very hard to keep a calendar of upcoming events and fundraisers.  Some of these we will be at, some we won’t.  If we show up, we usually aren’t too hard to find.  Regardless, this is a great place to discover how you can be more involved in this great community.
