In 2009, Larry Akin began his journey in the world of insurance. After spending 18 years in the pest control service industry, most of that time as the Regional Sales Manager for Cook’s Pest Control. Larry was recruited to join the agency force at Nationwide Insurance at the beginning of 2009, by the end of that year Akin & Associates, Inc. was established.
After completing a challenging New Agent Training program, Larry took over the Priceville agency, formally known as the Gil Terry Agency located on Deere Road.
A few months later, we relocated the agency to the Priceville Foodland Shopping Center to better serve the community. Not long after we settled in at the Priceville office, we decided to open a new office in the Decatur Community. That office is located on Bradley St., on the corner of the La Hacienda Shopping Center. This moved proved to really help the Hispanic community, we have two bi-lingual associate agents at this location.
Our latest move has been the purchase of our Cullman location. In December of 2018, we purchased the agency formally known as the Burchell Insurance Agency.
We have been extremely blessed that the original staff aggreged to stay on with us. This allowed a very smooth transition and helped insure no drop-in customer service.
We currently have ten employees, three are bi-lingual.
We offer a wide variety of options in Insurance and with many carriers.
Along with home, auto & life, we also specialize in Commercial and Farm insurance coverage.
To provide peace of mind in everyday life.
