“Once you’re involved insurance, you’re in it for life.”
In 1974, Herman Murray opened an independent insurance agency in Palm City. He became the first person in Florida to sign as an independent agent with Allstate, an alliance that has endured for 43 years. By 1975, he had expanded to Okeechobee and then to Indiantown. He then later decided to focus solely on Okeechobee and Palm City.
Herman's son, Shannon, decided to follow in his father's footsteps by joining Murray Insurance Services in 1989. Shannon bought the company from his father in 2001. Herman and Shannon still worked together however, the 2004 hurricanes damaged their Okeechobee office. Thankfully, that didn't slow us down. Murray Insurance Services needed an office to serve hurricane victims quickly, so Shannon rented an available site next to radio station WOKC on Park Street and opened up to provide help.
Fast forward to 2017, 10 years after Herman's passing, Shannon decided to go back to his roots and build a new office where the old Okeechobee office stood.
In 2022 Murray Insurance Services partnered with Darr Schackow Insurance Agency to provide more options to our clients.
