Thank you for your interest in The Ballard Agency, Inc.’s website. I am J. David Ballard, the agency’s President and the second generation owner of my family-owned insurance agency. My agency is a successful small town business that prides itself in building strong personal relationships with our clients and has proudly served the Hillsborough, NC area since 1946.
One of the keys to our success is that we are an independent agency which gives us a choice of insurance companies to meet your needs. As your agent, we are your link to the company and their link to you. Success for us is building a relationship of trust and understanding between you and our companies.
Just as important is the quality of the insurance companies we represent. Our largest insurance company is Erie Insurance Group, who is an excellent company, very competitively priced, with an innovative product line, and a philosophy of being above all in service that is engrained in every aspect of its operations. We also share Erie’s philosophy of providing quality service to our customers.
We believe strongly in actively supporting our community that has so graciously supported us. I have been an active volunteer with Hillsborough’s fire department for almost 40 years, which benefits my customers in loss prevention and loss reduction. In many cases the claims process for my insureds starts immediately when the fire department arrives on scene.
My staff and I hope you will consider us to fill your insurance needs and look forward to seeing you soon.
