Who we are.

Since our start in 1963, the Flatlands Jessup Insurance Group has been focused on helping families, farmers, and businesses find insurance solutions across North Carolina and beyond. As a family-owned and locally-operated business, we have expanded over the years—now with six office locations and an experienced team who’s ready to help you.

How it all began.

In 1963, R.H. Allen Jr. (Paige and Read’s father) sold life insurance with his cousin, Clarence Carowan, as the Carowan Allen Insurance Agency. Fast forward to 1994, and Clarence retired while Read joined the agency after graduating from UNC-W. In 2005, Paige joined the agency. Paige and Read grew the agency offerings to health, small group, Medicare, property and casualty, and crop insurance. In 2015, Flatlands Insurance Group was formed with Michael Lee. In 2017, a merger with Marc Jessup Insurance created the Flatlands Jessup Insurance Group that we all know today. We invest heavily in the foundation of the company, our employees, and are dedicated to continuous growth.

Why choose us?

Sure, there are many options out there to choose from for your insurance. But do those companies provide value or just the bare minimum? Do they do what’s right for you or for the insurance companies? Does the coverage they offer actually protect what you care the most about? We don’t just go above and beyond in service, we go the extra mile to bring you value in your insurance policy, we are dedicated to doing what’s right, and we help you find insurance for what matters most.

We’re independent for a reason.

Because we’re an independent insurance agency, we have access to multiple insurance companies and organizations—which means you have a say in the insurance solutions that you choose. We’re here to help you in making an informed decision, but you have the autonomy to choose the coverage that will offer you protection. And most importantly, our team is here to defend your honor, provide value, and help you find protection—because that’s the right thing to do.
