About The Van Wallace Agency

Welcome to The Van Wallace Agency, a family-owned insurance agency that has been dedicated to providing trusted coverage and exceptional service since 1989. Our agency was founded by Van Wallace, who started his career as a US Special Forces officer before venturing into the insurance industry.

Our Founder – Van Wallace

Van Wallace, a highly experienced and passionate professional, established The Van Wallace Agency with a vision to protect and serve our community through comprehensive insurance solutions. With a background in the military, Van brought his values of integrity, reliability, and trust to the agency.

A Family-Owned Agency

At The Van Wallace Agency, family is at the core of our values. Van Wallace, my father, founded the agency and operated it with a family-oriented approach. We believe in treating our clients as an extension of our family and providing them with personalized care and attention.

Expansion and Acquisitions

During Van’s ownership of the agency, he pursued growth opportunities to better serve our clients. He successfully acquired several reputable insurance agencies, including the Houston Minniece Agency in Okolona, MS, the Lamar Smith Agency in Tupelo, MS, and the Mike Timbes Agency in Corinth, MS. These acquisitions allowed us to broaden our reach and provide even more comprehensive insurance options to individuals and businesses in those areas.

Additionally, Van opened an office in Booneville, MS, which served the community for several years. This expansion brought us closer to our clients in Booneville and surrounding areas, allowing us to better understand their unique insurance needs.

Independent Agency Offering Top Brands

In 2019, I had the privilege of acquiring The Van Wallace Agency from my father, Van Wallace. While maintaining his commitment to exceptional service, we transitioned to become an independent agency. As an independent agency, we have the freedom to partner with a diverse range of top-rated insurance brands, including Farmers, Travelers, Safeco, Progressive, and Nationwide. This independence enables us to offer tailored coverage options and find the best insurance solutions for our clients.

Our Commitment

At The Van Wallace Agency, we put our clients’ needs first. Our experienced team of professionals is dedicated to understanding your unique insurance requirements and providing personalized guidance throughout the process. We strive to deliver the highest level of service, building lasting relationships with our clients based on trust and reliability.

Thank you for considering The Van Wallace Agency for your insurance needs. We look forward to continuing the legacy of excellence established by Van Wallace and serving as your trusted insurance advisors.
