About Us

Experience You Can Count On

Brevard Coastal Insurance is an independent insurance agency offering all lines of personal and commercial insurance. We represent many major insurance companies who offer a wide variety of insurance products. 

We specialize in a comprehensive evaluation of our clients insurance requirements and place them with insurance policies that suit them not only for their present circumstances but for their long term needs. We build life time relationships and have the flexibility to move clients among our vast array of products as their lives and businesses grow and change.

We will always place our clients interests first.

Brevard Coastal Insurance will never direct a client into a product because of any sales goals, quotas or other financial incentives.  We are independent and serve no allegiance to any one insurance company.  We are partnered with many of the best national and local  insurance companies who appreciate the value of an independent insurance agent. We offer fast, friendly, courteous, professional service to our clients 24/7

Why choose an independent agency?

  • Your agent knows the “ins and outs” of insurance. They help you get the coverage you need and make sure you’re not paying for things you don’t.
  • One phone call gets you quotes from multiple insurance companies. Independent agencies represent many insurance companies. They help you to find the one that is the best fit and price for you. Why spend hours comparing companies on the internet when you can make one phone call and get quotes from multiple companies?
  • Keep your business local. Get friendly, professional service from someone who lives in your very own community. Someone you know and trust.
  • If you have a claim, your local agent is there to help. When an accident happens no one wants to call into an 800 number and talk to a complete stranger?
  • You can handle all of your insurance needs in one place. Auto, Home and Business.  Life and Health.
  • You receive all of these extra advantages at no extra expense.
