Freedom Insurance – Stephanie Summers and son Waylon cut the ribbon on their new business with the help of Chamber Ambassadors.
New business owner Shannon Summers and her company, Freedom Insurance and Services, were welcomed to the community recently by the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.
Located at 115 S. North Street, Freedom Insurance provides insurance for auto, home, renters, recreational vehicles, specialty and bonds. Summers said her company has connections with different carries, “We have several different carriers we are appointed with. We have top preferred carriers and carriers for those just starting out or up again. This gives Freedom the ability to make sure you are with the right carrier for the customer’s needs.”
The Southern State graduate is relatively new to the insurance industry, but has an extensive customer service background from car dealerships, to retail. She also served in the Army Reserves for 5 years. “I decided to go into business for myself because I do things different, I am very disciplined, hard-working and a problem solver. I wanted to be in control of how I work, how my customers are treated, and still be able to be a good mom for my family,” said Summers. “Obviously, without my customers I wouldn’t be able to continue on being an agency owner, they are the most valuable asset and they should be treated as such.” Office hours are 9am-4pm through the week, but appointments can be make for any time.
