Buzz Advertiser, Chicoine Insurance Agency continues to build a name for itself by serving the community, both inside and outside the office. Jeff and Shannon Chicoine take pride in building a business that works in the best interest of the client.
“We want to make sure people understand that when they come to us, they’re not a number on a board, they’re a customer,” Jeff said.
After becoming an independent agency in 2021, Chicoine Insurance Agency now offers additional services to help more people with different budgets and obligations.
“We can say yes! When you come in the door, we can actually try to find the best price while trying to get you the best coverage and value,” Jeff said.
Since their grand opening on November 19, 2021, Chicoine Insurance Agency has grown and expanded their business to provide a greater variety of services.
“We now have over 50 operators, so the options are endless,” Shannon said.
Chicoine Insurance Agency was also excited to bring on longtime colleague and friend, Terrell Benton, as a licensed representative.
Chicoine Insurance Agency offers a variety of insurance services including auto, home, farm, business and life insurance to meet the different, unique needs of each of their clients.
“Life insurance is our passion because of the people and the whole emotional aspect of it,” Shannon said.
Shannon explained that in addition to life insurance, which is one of their many services, Chicoine Insurance Agency is also very passionate about educating the public about the importance of life insurance.
“We want to educate people about life insurance. We find out what their budget is, we find out what their obligations are, and we see where we can meet in the middle to give them the best possible protection,” Jeff said.
Chicoine Insurance Agency has established a strong social media presence to help advertise and inform the community about their services. Shannon explained how she took charge of their social media presence to make sure it reached as many people as possible.
“If we can put a smile on their face and sometimes educate a little bit about insurance at the same time, that’s what’s important to us,” Shannon said.
Chicoine Insurance Agency has already made great strides since their grand opening and Jeff explained how their goal is to only go up from here.
“As for the office, we hope as we grow we can hire more people while still keeping it local,” Jeff said.
In addition to growing their business, Chicoine Insurance Agency demonstrates how they value our community through various events that welcome other local businesses.
Jeff is the current president of the Pleasanton Lions Club and has been a member for over 25 years. His other community club involvement includes: as director of the Jourdanton Chamber of Commerce, Atascosa County Crime Stoppers, president of the Jourdanton 1909 Association and serving on the City of Jourdanton Planning and Zoning Committee.
Jeff and Shannon Chicoine took the lead in bringing back the Jourdanton 1909 Founders Day community celebration.
“Everyone has great ideas, but no one just knows where to start. So we basically formed this group and said, you know, let’s just make this happen,” Jeff said.
The Jourdanton 1909 Founders Day event was held on May 21st and the turnout exceeded what Jeff and Shannon expected.
“It couldn’t have gone any better. For our first round, I’m just so proud of it. I am so proud. I’m proud of all the community support that came out and was a part of it,” Shannon said.
For Chicoine Insurance Agency, their community involvement doesn’t stop there. Shannon is excited to announce their next big local event.
“We went to the city council meeting in June and were approved for Small Business Saturday in November,” Shannon said.
Like last November’s Small Business Saturday, this event will invite local merchants, food and entertainment to come together to celebrate small businesses and sell their products.
“We want to see our city grow and so does the entire Atascosa community,” Jeff said.
Chicoine Insurance Agency is here for the entire community, including animals. Shannon explained that they are proud sponsors of Animal Allies.
“We accept monetary donations, dog beds, cat crates, cat toys, dog toys and leashes,” Shannon said.
Chicoine Insurance Agency continues to serve as active members of the community and they are excited to grow and expand their business to meet the unique needs of each client.
