About Us

Courtney PierceCourtney graduated with a Master of Accounting degree with an emphasis on Valuation from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. She completed her undergraduate career at William and Mary, as well, and graduated with a BBA in Accounting with a concentration in Finance. There, she also earned a minor in Hispanic Studies and is fluent in the Spanish language.

One aspect that separates Courtney and the Courtney Pierce Insurance Agency from other agents and agencies is that we have had a lot of experience with different insurance companies, so we bring a very diverse perspective to how the insurance products we offer compare to those currently out in the market. Courtney, herself, was born in an insurance household as her father, Bob Pierce, was in the insurance industry for about 50 years. She has been fortunate enough to have had his mentorship. Growing up under her father’s legacy, she has grown up with an insurance background and has been around the industry her whole life. While this is not only an asset that contributes to her insurance expertise, it also contributes to her unmatched enthusiasm for what she does.

A message from Courtney:

“As an agent, my primary goal is to make sure my clients’ needs are taken care of. I evaluate each client on a case by case basis and refuse to generalize their needs, as everyone’s insurance protection is unique and should be treated as such. Protecting families and ensuring that one bad day won’t spiral into a negative life is my passion and I treat every one of my clients as I would my family.

Our team puts the needs of our clients first and foremost. We take care of your insurance protection and the protection for your family, so you don’t have to. Let us do our job and rest easy knowing someone from the Pierce agency team has reviewed your insurance needs, assessed any vulnerabilities, and has established the proper protection.”

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn't purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn't have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family's financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn't have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
