About Godwin Insurance

Godwin Insurance Agency is a family-owned and operated independent agency, and has been since 1953, when brothers Grover Godwin and Louis Godwin originally established the agency. Shirley Ray, who the brothers had hired in 1970 to be a policy typist, became part-owner upon Grover’s retirement in 1986, and then sole owner when Louis retired just four years later. Even though ownership changed, the name on the door remains Godwin Insurance Agency to honor the hard-earned legacy of trust and integrity that we have become known for in the Triad area.

Pictured above are Shirley, her husband Reggie and their daughter Teresa Owens, who work together alongside a team of the nicest insurance professionals you’ll ever want to meet. Each of our licensed agents is provided ongoing education to keep them current with changes in the insurance industry. Most have achieved professional designations and others are in the process of attaining them.

Godwin is dedicated to delivering the best insurance solutions at the most reasonable price. We take great pride in providing each of our clients the attention necessary to develop insurance programs to meet their specific needs.


“Godwin Insurance Agency has looked after our Home and Auto Insurance for 18 years. We have had nothing but excellent service. They are in my opinion by far the best insurance agency. Five star quality and service.”

“Godwin’s staff was absolutely delightful to work with. We were purchasing life insurance and had a lot of questions. Their patience and thoughtful assistance were a huge help in navigating the experience. We’d absolutely use Godwin again, and would recommend you do as well.”

“The representatives at Godwin Insurance are the most organized, prompt and courteous staff at an insurance company I have ever had a relationship with. This is a local insurance agency representing companies that compete and beat national companies with their prices while providing unprecedented customer service. Any time I have a question about my plan, they are always quick to respond. If you want an insurance company that competes nationally, but also knows your name when you walk in the door, choose Godwin Insurance.”

“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.”
