Nationwide Insurance in Wilmington NC

About Us

Owens Insurance Agency & Financial Services, Inc. was founded in Wilmington, North Carolina in September 2000 by Edward Stephen Owens, III. Stephen began his career in insurance in 1992 as an Associate Agent for a Nationwide insurance agent in Wallace, NC.  Stephen grew up in Burgaw, North Carolina where he worked in a family-owned business after graduation from college.  He used the valuable experiences he gained from his family business to establish and build his own business. 

With hard work and subsequent success in the industry came the opportunity to open a second office location in Burgaw, NC in 2004. With two locations, the agency serves southeastern North Carolina by providing competitive products for personal lines, commercial lines, life insurance and the industry’s best financial services.  

Under Stephen’s leadership, the staff of Owens Insurance Agency keeps its promise to deliver excellent customer service. The staff is aware that insurance is difficult to understand and we are always ready to explain policy details. All customer service representatives are licensed insurance agents that stand ready to serve as advocates for our policyholders. Our customers know that we are on their side. 

Because of our close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and tidal waters, we have become experts in the coastal insurance marketplace. We know how to manage the risks associated with hurricane and flood prone areas by providing just the right coverage for your most valuable asset, your home or your business. We take the worry out of properly insuring your home, vacation home or rental property, autos, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles to name a few.   

Stephen and his staff believe strongly that our customers are important, and we strive to develop relationships with our policyholders. This, along with exceptional customer service that comes from many years of experience, sets the Owens Insurance Agency apart from other agencies. We are committed to providing excellent products and the attitude that you are important to us. We want to be everywhere you are.
