The Pitts Insurance Team was founded in 1980 by F. Lee Pitts. It began as a scratch agency with just a desk and a phone in the Columbia district office. Thanks to Lee's hard-work, dedicated staff and loyal customer base the Pitts Insurance Team is now one of the largest Nationwide Agencies in the Columbia area. In 2008 Lee's son, James Pitts, left his career as a top performing Sales Manager for Nationwide to return home and take over the day-to-day operations of the Pitts Insurance Team. Our founder, Lee Pitts, remains highly involved as an associate agent and consultant. We are a family owned and operated business. Each and everyday our team strives to offer only the best in insurance and risk management solutions to our customers. We have subject matter experts in auto, home, commercial and life insurance on staff and ready to help in anyway possible. We return our customer calls, we apologize for and correct our mistakes.

Our slogan is More Than Just Insurance serves as a reminder to both our team and our clients that we are protecting our customer's assets, quality of life and dreams. Failing to do so properly would be devastating and this is unacceptable to us! We are not the cheapest and we are not the most expensive. WE offer something you need and we want to be the one to help you with it. WE are the team who will always be there and the team you are going to tell your friends about.
Yes, we sell insurance - Auto, Life, Home, & Business - just like the other agents in our community. However, we differ greatly in the manner in which we do it. Our motto is "more than just insurance" -- we take pride in being more than just an agency. We build custom insurance programs to protect your assets, your lifestyle and your dreams. We slow down to listen & learn about your unique concerns. We want our customers to become clients & our clients to become friends. All while leaving you protected
