Brightway Insurance will open in Elgin, S.C. on Monday, May 21. Brightway Insurance opened its first agency in the Palmetto State last year. With Monday’s opening, there will be five Brightway Insurance agencies in South Carolina.  

“As the first Brightway Agency in Elgin and near Columbia, we’re able to offer consumers more choice than they’ll find anywhere else,” said Kim Shumaker, principal agent at Brightway. “I look forward to having access to many different companies to ensure we match the best products with our customers to protect their property.”

Shumaker comes to Brightway with 10 years of insurance and sales experience. She most recently worked at State Farm. She helps people find financial fitness not only through proper insurance coverage, but also through physical fitness as a certified personal trainer.

“We’re thrilled to introduce Brightway Insurance to this new market in South Carolina,” said Brightway President Talman Howard. “Consumers who haven’t had the opportunity to work with a Brightway agent will be delighted to find an agent focused on their needs who can offer the most choice of insurance brands.”

Brightway agency owners offer comprehensive business support, including customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting, and technology.

The new Brightway agency is located at 1712 Woodcreek Farms Road in Elgin. The agency offers customized Home, Condo, Renters, Auto, Flood, RV, Motorcycle, Boat, ATV, Life, and Umbrella Insurance policies from numerous insurance brands.
