About Hedges Insurance

Are you looking for a good insurance company and getting fed up with comparing insurance rates? Choosing the right insurance agencye can make a big difference in price, service, and value. That’s why we’re here to cut through the clutter and to support you!

About Hedges Insurance Agency, LLC

Hedges Insurance Agency was founded by Trish Hedges at the insistence of her father.

Back then, she simply wanted a career that would let her stay near her young family. Her father, JC Dew, insisted she had the stuff to be a better agent than the “norm”.

He had been an insurance claims adjuster for most of her life and certainly dealt with his share of insurance agents.

As she took most of 1999 to research the field, develop a business plan, study and acquire the necessary licensure, she officially opened for business in May 2000, two weeks before her father passed away.

Using the diligent work ethic she’d been raised with, she started this business from scratch … something she didn’t know was unusual in this day and age.

She didn’t inherit it or buy it; she earned it and worked for it! Worked for the trust of each and every customer by promising something different, something better than what they were being given.

Our Focus

Be there for each customer in ways other agents thought unnecessary.
Support our community by volunteering where ever we see a need.
Treat each person with respect as a valuable and potential relationship.

Hedges Insurance

Sounds simple, but with the way the world has changed, we don’t do business with every client face to face the way we used to. So, we do some things differently now, like communicate through newsletters and Facebook instead of seeing everyone in town at the tee ball field or local restaurant. We also set up events where we see many of you, such as our Customer Appreciation Day, Kid’s Safety Day, and Mama Crockett’s Donut Day.

Our office always has been set up to feel like home. The reason for that is simple, we want you to feel at home with us … like part of our family. Hold us to the higher standard of service we strive for – we hope you’ll provide your comments on how we’re doing anytime on our website or during our annual client survey every May. We know that you rely on us to protect your most valuable treasures, your family, home, vehicles, and businesses. We are here for you!



We have a team of licensed, experienced and knowledgeable insurance professionals who are always ready to become your partner and help you find the insurance plan that really works for you.

She enjoys spending time with her family, drinking whatever Heather mixes up, watching baseball, reading, playing craps, poker and working.

Trish was beyond kind, helpful and informative. I had never bought a car before nor had I ever had my own insurance plan. It took one phone call, half an hour, and everything had been perfectly set up for me. She asked multiple questions to ensure I got the best possible rate. I 100% recommend!

I don't have enough space to say all the great things about Hedges Insurance that I would like. I was in need of auto insurance for our family last year and upon reading the good reviews of Hedges, I took a chance and sent in a request for a call back. I was called back by Trish Hedges immediately! Not only was Trish prompt, but she was also kind, helpful and professional. Some people are just born to work in a business like insurance, and Trish is THE best that I have ever worked with. To say that we are happy that we chose Hedges would be a gross understatement! I only wish that I had found her sooner!
