About Us

Greensboro insurance agent Teresa Owens with owners Shirley Ray and Reggie Ray

Godwin Insurance Agency is a family-owned and operated independent agency, and has been since 1953, when brothers Grover Godwin and Louis Godwin originally established the agency. Shirley Ray, who the brothers had hired in 1970 to be a policy typist, became part-owner upon Grover’s retirement in 1986, and then sole owner when Louis retired just four years later.  Even though ownership changed, the name on the door remains Godwin Insurance Agency to honor the hard-earned legacy of trust and integrity that we have become known for in the Triad area.  We offer personalized service, and attention to every detail in the areas of personal, health and business insurance.
Pictured above are Shirley, her husband Reggie and their daughter Teresa Owens, who work together alongside a team of the nicest insurance professionals you’ll ever want to meet.  Each of our licensed agents is provided ongoing education to keep them current with changes in the insurance industry.  Most have achieved professional designations and others are in the process of attaining them.  
Godwin is dedicated to delivering the best insurance solutions at the most reasonable price. We take great pride in providing each of our clients the attention necessary to develop insurance programs to meet their specific needs.
