A Little Bit About Our History
As a successful, dynamic, and well-respected company, Troy Insurance Group is a privately-owned independent agency specializing in high-value personal property, commercial and business insurance, and unique insurance exposures and risks. We provide our services to clients all across Texas in addition to California, Georgia, Florida, North carolina, South Carolina, and New York.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Troy Insurance Group was founded by Kelly Troy after many years as an entrepreneur and real estate investor due to the lack of professional knowledge that he had experienced regarding his own insurance needs.
With an accomplished background and first-hand experience in manufacturing, entrepreneurship, business management, real estate investing, and many other areas of expertise, Kelly founded the company determined to distinguish it from other ’one size fits all’ insurance brokerages and impersonal internet-based providers by focusing on the specific needs and interests of customers. The company’s mission was, and still is, to serve as a professional advocate for our customers and to provide value by offering risk management services for our commercial clients. Kelly was recognized as one of the top 25 commercial agents in Texas (from 5,000 other candidates) while previously under contract with Farmers Insurance Group and his agency was highlighted as a ‘model agency’ within the state of Texas.
BECOMING AN INDEPENDENT BROKERAGE
In January 2008, Troy Insurance Group chose to terminate its captive contract and become a fully independent brokerage, developing strong relationships with a variety of insurance markets and providing clients with a better selection of insurance products and services. The company has been continually growing and improving ever since.
As part of this growth, it was recognized that there was a tremendous lack of insurance-related resources for real estate investors and related entrepreneurs. Because of Kelly’s background and investing experience, Troy Insurance Group developed and established its own brand and brokerage designed specifically for real estate investors and related professionals such as loan servicers, property managers, commercial property owners, and similar. This brand, InsuranceForInvestors.com, provides custom insurance solutions for all manner of investing-related risks, from seller-financed ‘wraparound’ mortgages to bonds, comprehensive liability, scheduled-property policies, vacant homes, short-term rentals, and much much more.
Currently, both companies are licensed and doing business in Texas, California, Georgia, Florida, New York, North Carolina, and South Carolina with the other states being added to our available markets.
A PARTNERSHIP WITH CAPITAL BENEFITS GROUP
Due to our reputation and expertise in the area of property and casualty insurance, Troy Insurance Group formed a strategic alliance with Capital Benefits Group in order to create a true ‘one call solution’ for all insurance related needs. Capital Benefits Group, also located in Austin, is a leader in Employer Benefits and Group Life and Health insurance products. With that partnership, the companies provide complete, well-implemented, and cost-effective solutions to virtually all insurance situations, regardless of how large, small, simple, or complicated it may be. From individual homes to employer benefits for 5,000-person groups, our current staff of professionals are some of the most experienced and respected insurance professionals in the industry and they all share a single common goal: To provide the best customer service, pricing, and experience available for our clientele.
While many brokerages simply provide basic quotes for home, auto, and some businesses or are too large and ‘corporate’ to give their clients the individual attention they deserve, we strive to change the way our customers view insurance by actually understanding their individual personal and business needs, explaining the best and most cost-effective options available, and not providing generic ‘vanilla’ solutions. Our broad range of insurance-related products and services includes all forms and types of personal insurance, life and health, commercial and surplus lines, and employee benefits. In addition, we represent only the best, most well-respected and most financially-secure insurance carriers in the industry.
Because of this, our future is very bright.
We are expanding into several other states and our staff are some of the most knowledgeable and experienced available. Our commitment is to provide exceptional customer service is reflected in the range of solutions that we offer as well as in our belief in educating our customer’s in their insurance options, thereby enabling them to make informed and intelligent choices appropriate for their own unique needs.

Insurance is only as good and the agent and the company standing behind the promise and you can rest assured that we are going to be here when we are needed the most.
