Our History

Thank you for choosing the Vernon Pate Agency. I truly appreciate the opportunity to help you find the insurance coverage that is right for you. I am grateful for the trust my current customers have placed in me as their agent and in Nationwide. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with so many great customers to help them achieve their insurance goals. I have represented Nationwide Insurance in the Sumter area community since 1980. I am proud that my first customer is still with me and I have a large number of customers that have been with me for 32 years. I believe everyone can have the insurance they need at an affordable price. Just as no two people are alike, not two people's insurance needs and objectives are alike either. I enjoy working with individuals to create a coverage portfolio that best fits their specific objectives. I have been active in the Sumter area by serving on several advisory boards including the American Red Cross and Lighthouse Homeless Shelter. I attend Salt and Light Church and live my life based on Christian principles. I enjoy olf, tennis, hunting and fishing. I have been married for 42 years and love spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren. Family is very important to me, that is why each customer becomes a part of my family.
