History of the Agency
Raymond Nelson Insurance, Inc. began in 1981 when our founder, Raymond Nelson, was looking for a better way to help people than selling life insurance door-to-door, which he had been doing for the previous 10 years. He founded our agency on the principle of going above and beyond to always be there when our clients need us, even if that means traveling 300 miles or helping a client through a crisis when the office would normally be closed.
Throughout our history we have specialized in serving the trucking and transportation industry, but over the years we continued to branch out both in the regions we serve and the types of insurance we sell, and now we are a full-service agency. We began in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, but are currently licensed in over 18 states, and our clients are protected wherever they happen to be in the United States and Canada. Whatever your personal insurance or commercial insurance needs, we will go the extra mile to find you the coverage that best protects what matters most, the business you’ve built and the people you love.
Our agents have over 100 years of combined experience helping people protect their businesses, homes and families. We provide all lines of coverage and pledge to use our expertise to find you insurance that is both affordable and gives you the complete coverage you need. Compassionate, personalized service is our top priority. Always keeping in mind that we work for our clients and not the insurance carriers, we always take the time to get to know each client and serve their best interests.
