Hodges Insurance Agency is a local, family owned company that has been serving North Carolina for over 60 years. Founded in 1951 by Louisburg native and prominent community member, John Hicks Hodges, our agency has continued to support the community through quality insurance service, customer care, and community involvement.
Mr. John Hodges promoted the well-being of the community in business and through service to local interests. As a board member at Louisburg College and a local Lions Club member, service to others is a value he both possessed and instilled in the agency culture.
Ray Hodges joined his father in business in 1979, and after his father’s passing in 1991, continued his service to both the clients of Hodges Insurance and to the community as a board member of Louisburg College, Chairman of the Board of Adjustments for the Town of Louisburg, and local Lions Club Member. After his passing in April of 2012, his daughters Emily Hodges and Allison Westmoreland have continued the tradition. Both sisters currently live in Raleigh.
Emily Hodges graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has assumed her father’s unexpired term on the Board of Trustees at Louisburg College. Allison Westmoreland graduated from East Carolina University as a member of both the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi and the Golden Key International Honour Society.
Both Emily and Allison have been working in the family business for over 4 years and are the third generation of Hodges to offer services to the clients of Hodges Insurance Agency.
During the 60 plus years in business, our agency has strived to operate as both a good community and corporate citizen in North Carolina. Throughout our many years in business, our agency has developed quality relationships with numerous insurance carriers, which we put to good use for your family and business.
We put our years of experience to work protecting your future and the future of our local communities.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or businessowner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.
