About Us
Over a quarter of a century ago, Vicki Ballard began work as a secretary in a small, local insurance agency answering phones and getting to know customers. As she watched those customers, many of whom had just experienced loss or tragedy, being helped at critical times by insurance, she started to fall in love with her job.
Soon, she and her husband, Ronnie, were dreaming about opening their own agency. In July 1997, the dream was fulfilled – The Ballard Insurance Agency opened for business.

Despite wonderful growth, the Ballard dream remains the same today as it was in the beginning. As Vicki says, “Our goal is to provide the ultimate customer service, for any and everyone who walks through our doors. We want our customers to know that we value their business and care about their lives – their satisfaction is our number one goal.”

Ronnie and Vicki were both raised in Lamar County, Texas and have spent most of their lives right here.
