Best Insurance Agent: Bruce Woods
Whether it's an after-hours fender bender, a deer hit out of town or any other inconvenience, if a customer is in trouble, Bruce E. Woods tries to be there.
"I make it a point, if at all physically possible, to go to the scene of every accident," he said. "I've driven as far as San Antonio to pick up clients."
It's that philosophy, he said, that helps him stand apart from the rest.
Woods was voted the Crossroads' best insurance agent in the Advocate's 2013 Best of the Best contest.
The insurance agent has been in the business 12 years, he said, and called his profession a passion. Every client has his personal cell number and can reach him anytime, anywhere.
"I'm just trying to give good service," he said. "Whatever it takes."
