Our agents possess extensive experience creating and managing customized solutions for individuals, couples, and Texas businesses with significant wealth. The most effective asset protection blends several products and policies. To help you create the optimal protection solution for your unique situation, we offer advice on a number of options, including: business succession/transition strategies, estate planning and estate tax payment strategies, wealth protection strategies, long-term care insurance, life insurance, and home and auto insurance.

    We are long time Watkins customers and have loved their service over the years. These folks have the experience to handle small and large policies and we've used them for both. Call them with confidence.

    Review from Tracy below is spot on with my experience as well. Assigned a new representative each time. Hard to get them to contact you and address your problems. Often there are a lot of delays. I had to contact DShanya (see below) for follow up many times to get traction on issues. This person is excellent and gets it done, but it's not a good sign to have to go through their communications/public image person each time for follow up on simple insurance matters. I wish Watkins Insurance the best in the future, and hope other clients have a better experience.

    I have used Watkins Insurance Group for years with no claims and no fuss. I was easy money to them. Rarely had to call but when I did, I was always assigned a new representative and it was like pulling teeth to get them to call me back. My last representative was Amy, who provided very poor customer service. That was the last straw so I cancelled them and will never use them again. Extreme lack of communication and promptness!

    We recently bought our first home and got in touch with Justin Nelson at Watkins for homeowners insurance. He is very pleasant, responsive, and knowledgeable. We decided to switch to Watkins for our auto insurance as well, and they got us a great price. My partner and I pay less for both our cars together than my partner paid for his alone previously! Great experience!

    I am a small business owner in Austin and Watkins handles all of our insurance needs. I recently filed a claim for the first time and was very happy with the process. The communication was prompt, courteous and the claim was settled quickly. Thank you Erin H. and Clint B.
