March 2013 Agency Spotlight – Lowcountry Insurance Services, Beaufort, SC

Lowcountry Insurance Services | Agency Spotlight | Frontline Insurance

While living on the coast gives you opportunities that you would not have otherwise, it also comes with greater risks to your home. That is why it is so important to have an experienced agent working with you to provide you with the best policy for your home. Our March Spotlight Agency, Lowcountry Insurance Services Inc., has just that! In fact, their staff holds 431 combined years of experience.

Frank E. Gibbson, who continues to serve as owner and president, established Lowcountry Insurance Services Inc. in 1977. Then, in 1980, Frank won the Young Agent of the Year award from the South Carolina Independent Agents Association. Over the past 36 years, the agency has grown to employ 20 highly skilled individuals out of two offices. The staff includes two CPCUs, three CICs and four CISRs. They joke about how they may be a bit of an older crew, and how that means they “sure know how the business works”.

The agency has written with Frontline Insurance for five years, and has produced a substantial book of the fine coastal properties in which they specialize – for a free Homeowners Quote, click here and for a free Condominium Owners Quote, click here. In addition to homeowners’ policies, the agency has recently contracted to write flood insurance with Frontline to streamline the process for their clients by writing the Homeowners and Flood coverage together. In their words, “It just makes sense.” When asked about his partnership with Frontline, Frank stated, “As a leading Insurance Agency in the Lowcountry, our customers expect more from us; and they get it. Frontline gives us the opportunity to provide a great value proposition with fine coverage and a good price.”

Lowcountry Insurance Services is proud to be members of the Independent Agents and Brokers of South Carolina, because it allows them to offer a full line of private and commercial products. In addition to the coastal properties, they also specialize in historical homes and beachfront locations. However, you can find experts for every insurance need you have with this agency.

Lowcountry Insurance Services Inc. is more than a business it is a family. Vice President Jeff Althoff encourages this, and frequently is found breaking bread and laughing with the staff in the conference room when not tending to their duties. This mentality spreads to the community as well. Frank has held the position of president in many local organizations, such as the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce, YMCA and Beaufort Rotary Club. He is currently president of the Alumni Association of the Citadel. Furthermore, Mr. Gibson is also a recipient of the Palmetto award. Additionally, many of the staff are active in Rotary and contribute to charity and other local organizations as well. As such, they have made large contributions to Relay for Life and Toys for Tots over the years.
