Ernie Williams began his insurance career working with one of the world’s top insurance companies. After years of winning several awards from Allstate, he decided to open his own independent agency, which allowed him to broaden and diversify the scope of insurance options available.
The Ernie Williams Insurance Agency is the result of more than 30 years of business management and ownership experience. More importantly, it is the fulfillment of a personal goal—to help others know the importance of how insurance can protect them, their families, and their assets.
Early on in life, Ernie developed a passion for caring for others and learning how to serve his neighbors. He loves to talk to everyone he meets and believes that it is important to leave those he meets feeling better about themselves.
At Ernie Williams Insurance Agency, the focus is on taking the time to educate customers about the importance of having insurance for every facet of their lives as well as obtaining life insurance for the future. We used to say, “You’re in good hands.” Now, however, we say that we are “protecting your world.”

More than just a hobby Lisamarie loves “The State Fair of Texas and Big TEX!
