Meet The Team

MissionSelect aspires to be the very best at underwriting residential property insurance for Texans. We are committed to making a difference to our customers through well-designed products that are delivered with unparalleled speed, service and support.

MissionSelect insurance is designed to make it easier for independent agents to help homeowners get the coverage they need. While many agencies still use legacy systems, MissionSelect utilizes best-in-class software and products to save our clients and agents time and money.

Quotation Marks

At MissionSelect, we believe there is a community of concerned, professional agents out there — a community looking for positive connections with, and for, their customers. By listening to those agents and to those customers, MissionSelect is developing a level of perception that is highly resonant with that culture.

That type of connectedness is not the output of a scoring model. It is an intensely felt sense of contributing to the well-being of the family. We want to know what you need, what will help you be successful, what will be welcomed by your valued customers. We will be flexible and responsive to the needs of our partners.
