Providing peace of mind and financial guarantee

A picture of Yates employees featuring 5 men and 1 woman.

It all started with two brothers.

What started as a goal to help Georgia contractors with insurance and bonding in 1949 has continued to grow due to two things: integrity and strong relationships.

We exist to protect what you’ve built.

As our agency continues to grow and mature, we remain committed to the same principles shared by Dan & Alan Yates over 50 years ago: “We are going to look after our clients and prospects needs like they are our own, and our goal each day is to do our best.”

What makes us different.
