• Ragland Strother and Lafitte’s business was built on relationships and will continue its growth based on the principle that people do business with an agency they trust, feel comfortable with and have confidence in. Customizing an insurance program to meet the business and personal needs of our clients is what we do. The relationship that develops is who we are.
  • Whether it’s with a business owner, an individual or an underwriter, we make it a priority to cultivate relationships with the people we do business with.


  • Despite an increasingly more competitive business environment, Ragland Strother & Lafitte has been able to retain a uniquely high number of our clients from year to year.
  • Many agencies are full of sales people who only worry about the next prospect. However, our team has a 1 to 4 ratio of salespeople to account executives, who help service our accounts on a day to day basis. This service is performed at a high level both during the sales process and long afterwards.

Experience and Reputation

  • Throughout it’s history, Ragland Strother & Lafitte’s principals have held several positions of leadership in the insurance community, including:
    • 3 former Independent Insurance Agents of Dallas (IIAD) and Independent Insurance Agents of Texas (IIAT) Presidents
    • An IIAT Drex Foreman Award recipient
    • An IIAT Young Agent of the Year

Accuracy and Results

  • From the initial meeting with prospective clients to the inception of a policy, our goal is simple: To make sure our clients are insured properly, accurately, and strategically at the most competitive rate available, while building trust and a professional rapport throughout the process.
  • We achieve our lofty goal through our experienced and qualified staff, the relationships we cultivate and retain with our clients and carriers we work with, and our commitment to doing business honestly and responsibly.
  • Ragland, Strother and Lafitte has a Risk Exposure Analysis that helps to define and classify the risks of each individual or company we work with. This enables us to customize an insurance program that does not over-insure, but rather properly insure each account’s specific risk exposure.
