Durant Insurance agent is member of local Chamber – Published in the July 4-10 edition of the JC Sentinel

This week’s Member Spotlight is on Greg Phillips State Farm Insurance. Greg Phillips Insurance Agency, Inc. is committed to its clients. The agency provides State Farm’s great insurance products and financial services partnered with the highest level of customer service in southeastern Oklahoma – in doing so, they create customers for life. The agency provides both protection and value to its customers, partnering with their clients to discover and create a plan to meet their financial needs, interests and goals.

Greg has been the agent and owner of his State Farm agency since 2006.  Since 1995, Greg has worked with State Farm Insurance Companies and its customers both regionally and nationally.  Greg’s agency practices the Team approach and has much depth and experience.  Ange Bivings is the agency’s office manager with over 28 years of State Farm experience in Oklahoma and Texas.  Ashton Peters and Cindy Allen complete the team bringing sales experience and passion for taking care of their customers.

While the agency helps many Oklahoma families with their home and auto insurance, they offer many more State Farm insurance products in both personal and business lines.  The agency offers business insurance for both auto and property.  Boat insurance is also popular given the closeness to Lake Texoma. The agency provides many rural customers with insurance for their farms and ranches.  With the popularity of ATVs, utility vehicles and personal watercraft having exploded in recent years, they can provide policies for all of these.  They also provide health insurance through many products from Blue Cross & Blue Shield and State Farm. Finally, they are passionate about life insurance and helping to protect families from the unexpected and often financially devastating result of losing a family member.

Greg and his wife of twenty-one years, Marti Phillips, live in Durant and have a son, Mason who is a senior at Durant High School.  Greg is a second-generation agent having learned many of the customer service skills from his mother, Sandra Phillips, who has been a State Farm agent in Denison, Texas for 28 years.  Greg’s family and his Team are very active supporters of the local community as well and believe that an important part of being a Good Neighbor is giving back to their community.

Greg and his family are members of First United Methodist Church in Durant and Greg is involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Durant (board of directors and original founding board member), Oklahoma Small Business Development Center (advisory board member), Durant Chamber of Commerce (member), Durant Main Street (member), Johnston County Chamber of Commerce (member). Leadership Durant (2009) Leadership Oklahoma (Class XXIII), and the Three Valley Museum (board member).
