A lot has changed since the Ballard Agency was founded in 1963, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to our customers.  Our customers rely on us to help them navigate personal and professional insurance issues, and be their advocates before, during and after their policies are written. While we serve many large clients, our agency is family owned and operated, so we appreciate the challenges closely held businesses face every day.

We work with quality carriers like Chubb, Safeco, CNA, Hartford, Oregon Mutual, Hanover, Travelers and many others so we can tailor coverage to fit your needs.  From insuring personal lines portfolios, small locally owned businesses, venture backed startups to highly acclaimed national accounts, The Ballard Agency can accommodate clients of any size.

Owner Chris Ballard is actively involved in the company. He has been a licensed insurance agent for nearly two decades, and purchased the agency from his father in 2001.  A leader in the industry, he is a well-respected and highly knowledgeable insurance professional.

We look forward to serving you.
