Waley Insurance Agency opened its doors for business by a mother of three young boys in September 1980. Working by herself for the most part, Jeannie Waley, a lifetime resident of Leander, had a few employees on and off through the years. Then in November 2020, she brought her son, Josh into the office to teach him the ropes of the small family owned agency. They worked hand in hand together until her early death in November of 2007.
She taught Josh how to not only work the insurance business but also taught him how to listen to the needs of the clients as they came for help with their insurance concerns. Josh has been working the business, as his mother did in the early years, by himself. He looks forward to what the future brings for the business as the insurance industry evolves.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn't purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn't have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family's financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn't have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it's up to you to make the final choice.
