Godwin Insurance: Protecting Guilford County and the surrounding Triad area for more than 70 years

Godwin Insurance Agency is an independent family-operated agency that has been providing North Carolina with affordable insurance solutions since 1953.

Here at Godwin Insurance Agency, you’ll discover friendly service with a smile and a team of licensed professionals who are committed to continuing education and achieving industry related designations. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff, exceptional customer service, and access to a high-quality portfolio of carefully selected insurance companies and products are what set us apart. We take great pride in providing each of our clients with the attention necessary to develop insurance programs that address their insurance coverage requirements at a price that fits their budget. We offer a range of insurance products and services for the families and businesses of Guilford County from home and auto to commercial property, workers’ compensation, and more.


Godwin Insurance Agency was founded in 1953 by brothers Grover Godwin and Louis Godwin in Greensboro, North Carolina. In 1970, the Godwin brothers hired Shirley Ray to be the agency’s policy typist. Little did they know then, she would later become one of the first female agency owners in the Carolinas, purchasing the agency she had worked so hard to grow over the prior 20 years. Together with her daughter Teresa Owens, who joined the agency in 1996, they lead a team of professional insurance agents, well-respected in the industry and the community for their knowledge and integrity.

In October of 2021, Godwin Insurance became part of an even larger team of agents, and now operates as a division of Correll Insurance Group. The name on the door remains Godwin Insurance Agency to honor the hard-earned legacy of trust with which it has long been associated in the Triad area. Together, we focus on providing clients with the appropriate insurance based on their expressed needs and budget.

“Great product, great service, and a great experience.  Godwin Insurance nailed all three for my company.  When I needed business insurance, I could have gone anywhere, but they built the trust I needed to become a loyal customer.”
