The Murphy Insurance Agency is pleased to announce they have joined Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors, a Leavitt Group affiliate. This new partnership allows the agency to remain local with the enhanced resources and insurance carrier relationships of a national brokerage.

“I’ve had a great relationship with Mike Griffin at Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors for many years,” said The Murphy Insurance Agency owner Mike Murphy. “They have always run a quality agency and teaming up with them only makes us stronger. With this affiliation, we will continue to grow and serve our community for many years to come.”

The Murphy Insurance Agency will continue to be owned and operated by Murphy, offering auto, home, and commercial insurance. He and his team will remain at their location in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

“There are many things that are out of our control, but providing excellent customer service is not one of them,” said Murphy. “By joining Leavitt Group, we can take even better care of our customers with more insurance companies to quote on and the additional services we now have access to.”

Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors is an independent agency with 15 locations and over 70 employees. They have served North Carolinians and beyond with their personal and commercial insurance needs since 1973. For more information about Leavitt Elite Insurance Advisors visit
