History of our Charleston Insurance Agency

Taylor Agency was established in 1979, and initially was half of an insurance agency cluster that traded as Mayfield & Taylor. By 1983, the cluster had offices in Charleston, Columbia, and Greenville. Mayfield & Taylor later disbanded in 1987, and W. Lee Taylor, Jr. Agency, Inc. relocated its office to Wappoo Centre in Charleston where it began trading as Taylor Agency. In 1998, our Summerville branch office was opened in Town Square. A couple years later, in 2000, Taylor Agency acquired a health & life agency called Palmer & Associates, and the same employees work with the agency today. In 2004, Taylor Agency opened its branch office on Johns Island which is now located in Freshfields Village near the entrance to Kiawah and Seabrook Islands. 2008 brought the beginning of Taylor Agency’s branch office on Daniel Island which we moved to Mount Pleasant in 2016. We currently have 45 employees handling all types of insurance for businesses and residents in much of South Carolina and across the United States.
