About Us

Bob Sales Insurance Agency is a company that offers excellent customer service while providing the best insurable protection to our clients.  Founded in 1924 in Brownsville, Texas, this agency began as an independent insurance agency to serve the individual customers of Brownsville. 

The original agency owners continued their proud service to the community through the Great Depression, World War II, and into the 1950's, before changing its original name to the Brown & Roberts Insurance Agency, located in downtown Brownsville in one of the historic bank buildings.  The agency experienced steady growth as the community of Brownsville boomed throughout the 1950's and 1960's.

Upon the untimely passing of the owner, Carl Brown, the Brown family brought in a young partner to run the agency.  Bob Sales began his distinguished work as a business leader in the Brownsville community and the leader of the insurance agency on April 15, 1968, after spending years working for the Texas State Board of Insurance and at Quirk & Company in San Antonio.  A few years later, the agency's name was permanently changed to Bob Sales Insurance Agency, and a new building was built on the northern outskirts of town at 1645 Price Road.  Bob had the foresight to build his new office right in the path of the coming future development of Brownsville as it expanded northward.

History

In 1990, Wade Sales, joined the insurance agency after receiving his degree in Marketing from Texas A&M University,  Blake Sales, joined the agency two years later after receiving his degree in Finance from Stephen F. Ausitn University.   As was done in the early 1970's, the Bob Sales Insurance Agency was prepared to expand to a new location.  A beautiful new office complex was built and completed in September, 2000.  This location on Alton Gloor Blvd. in northern Brownsville became the new and present-day home for the agency.

Upon the turn of the century, things moved quickly.  A second location was opened in August, 2000, on N. 77 Sunshine Strip in Harlingen, Texas, which focused on the continually growing "Winter Texan" marketplace.  In 2006, a third location was opened on South Padre Island, primarily to cater to the under-served local population and the vacation-industry businesses located on this beach paradise.  Bob retired from the day-to-day operations of the business in 2002, but Wade and Blake have continued the tradition of professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy service started by their father years before.

These three locations, along with our professional staff, have allowed the Bob Sales Insurance Agency to continue to grow and provide our insurance expertise to a wide area of the Rio Grande Valley.  Our customers live throughout the four county area known as "The Valley", and we are proud to be able to provide them with the insurance service and expertise that they need and deserve.
