Since 1996, Jeff Thompson and his local team have been serving the residents of the Surfside Beach, SC area. With over 155 years’ combined experience, The Jeff Thompson Agency team have made it their mission to provide comprehensive evaluation and educational consultation for each individual client and provide appropriate recommendations regarding risk and the valuable protection that proper insurance provides. The JTI Team has built off of years of local experience in the South Carolina area to provide outstanding insurance coverages and service tailored especially for coastal markets. Focusing on home, condo, new construction, business, flood, wind coverages, auto and financial products, The Jeff Thompson Agency has established itself in the Surfside Beach area as local experts for a vast array of insurance needs.

As of September 2018, after 22 years of notable service in the insurance field, Jeff Thompson is retiring and chose to partner with Richard Braun of The Braun Agency, Nationwide to carry on his legacy of outstanding service and superior insurance coverage options for his clients in South Carolina. In partnering with The Braun Agency, Jeff knew that his clients would have access to a broader range of coastal insurance options while maintaining the same, local service in Surfside Beach, SC from the same local, personal agents his clients have worked with for years.

Testimonials
I signed up the family vehicles on the Nationwide SMART RIDE program. Just for signing up I saved 5% per vehicle which = savings ever month. The program was only 6 months and now I have additional savings ranging from 17% – 20% per vehicle. This is a fantastic way to save money. Thanks Braun Agency.

The Braun Agency Team ROCKS!! Amazing service, competitive rates and solid claims backing. They offer the personalized touch of having an office you can walk into and an experienced agent to talk to, combined with the convenience of an easy-to-use website and 24/7 access to claims through Nationwide. Wouldn’t trust my home to anyone else!

My wife and I are leaving our current insurance company after 25 years to join the Nationwide team and specifically, The Braun Agency. They define the difference between good and great and represent what customer service should be.

Several years back I had to switch from The Braun Agency when I purchased my home because Nationwide was not writing policies in my area at the time. Fast forward today…I have not found an agency that offered the customer service like the Braun Agency. I was so happy to be able to switch our auto, home and boat policies back. As expected with their staff,
Kim Harris was super helpful and attentive.
