About A Better Choice History

It has been an absolutely fantastic whirlwind of activity the last several months and, as a result, A Better Choice Insurance has made some tremendous achievements.  As such, on behalf of everyone at A Better Choice Insurance, we want to welcome the addition of two new agency offices in North Carolina in the cities of Concord and Graham.  These two offices join our two Western North Carolina offices in Asheville and Mars Hill and, as a result, A Better Choice Insurance now has offices across North Carolina to better serve its customers.

A Better Choice Insurance - Concord will still have Lori, Wanda, Destiny and Naomi available and working to fulfill all of your insurance needs.  Tim and Debbie are off to pursue their retirement dreams and we wish them both a safe and happy adventure.

A Better Choice Insurance - Graham was taken over from TowneBank and we have hired Caroline Davis to manage that office.  Caroline will be assisted by Lee Stowe in improving the quality of service offered to insurance customers in Graham and the surrounding towns of Alamance County.

A Better Choice Insurance - Asheville will continue to be managed by veteran insurance expert Karen, while A Better Choice Insurance - Mars Hill is to be skillfully managed by Jessica.  Both Karen and Jessica personify the ethos of A Better Choice Insurance by offering personal service while procuring superior insurance products at the best possible price.

Representing over 20 carriers, A Better Choice Insurance is an independent insurance agency that is able to please any and all customers finding the best insurance available for any situation at the right price.  In addition to the considerable number of carriers that we can approach on behalf of our customers, A Better Choice Insurance utilizes a sophisticated customer management system allowing us to offer extraordinary customer service.

A Better Choice Insurance is the business name of Madison Insurance Group and we have been helping people with their insurance needs since 2004.  Since opening our first office in Western North Carolina, we have developed a reputation for working with people to find the most suitable insurance they need at the best possible price.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our terrific customers at all of our locations and look forward to continuing to work with you.
