About us

Who are these guys anyway? Scroll down to find out!

AC Forrest is a family-owned insurance agency with one goal in everything we do: We want to make insurance as simple as we can for our clients. We know it can be a hassle, so we’re here to help.

We specialize in health insurance, dental insurance, term life insurance, and other related lines of protection for families and small employers in Georgia, South Carolina, and neighboring states.

Here are 5 other things you might like to know about us:

  • We don’t like dealing with pushy salesmen, so we assume you don’t either. Our job is to help you understand your options, not push a product down your throat. We hope you’ll think of us as consultants and not sales guys!
  • We like technology. We are more than happy to talk to you via email or Skype, and find screen-sharing to be a very useful tool to hold online meetings. When we can avoid it, we steer clear of paper! Insurance is an old-school industry, but we believe the web simplifies things for our clients, and makes everything much more efficient.
  • We believe there are a lot of insurance policies out there that are rubbish. You don’t need every insurance policy ever invented, but there are probably a couple you do need. We want to help you figure out the difference.
  • We believe insurance is personal. We’re talking about your life and your money here, so we want to help you customize the right plan to protect it. The goal is to help keep your life as normal as possible and not have to spend a ton of money when unexpected (bad) stuff happens. (And we all know it will.)
  • We have more than 30 years of experience. We’ve helped countless individuals and small employers with health insurance and related lines of protection. This industry is changing fast, but we’ve been around the block. Because we are a small business, we understand the unique needs and pressures our clients face and have the experience and tools to serve you effectively.
