About Vista Insurance

Vista Insurance Group is a full-service insurance agency working with clients throughout the southeast and Eastern seaboard. We’re experts in a range of products, including commercial, personal, health, and life.

As an independent insurance agency, we work for our clients and not a particular insurance company. There are hundreds of companies providing insurance, and we only work with the best. All of our carriers are financially A-rated and have reputations for being dependable and fair with claims and premiums.


Behind every recommendation from Vista Insurance Group, you’ll find hours of research and preparation by our dedicated team. We use the newest technology, like a paperless agency management system, to protect your information and keep you updated on changes that might affect you. It’s part of our unparalleled customer service that’s made us a member of Trusted Choice and a partner for more than 2,000 clients.

In the heart of South Carolina’s capital city, Vista Insurance Group has the local expertise to help you where you are. We’re entrepreneurs and we love what we do, and we know the importance and complexity of protecting your business and family.
