Laura Ferring never imagined getting into the insurance world. Now she can’t imagine doing anything different. Ferring, a Lantana resident and your friendly do-it-all-insurance agent and owner of GEICO in Flower Mound, started her career on a whim 21 years ago. As the story goes, she was looking for a job when she stumbled upon a GEICO kiosk. A single mother at the time with zero insurance background, she figured it’d be a temporary job until she got settled.
“I went in and interviewed, fell in love with the company, and here I am 21 years later,” Laura said. “I absolutely love this company and what we do for our customers. I don’t necessarily need to be here all the time, but I want to be.”
Ferring and her team are exactly who you want and need when it comes to your insurance needs — especially since she’s right around the corner by the new River Walk in Flower Mound. She’s done just about everything during her time at GEICO, from being an agent and supervisor to a zone manager and top producer who has traveled all over the country to help grow different markets. She permanently moved to Denton County in 2007 and jumped at the chance to run her own branch in Flower Mound last year.
On top of all that, her branch is a one-stop shop for everything from auto, home, and boat insurance to can’t-be-beaten policies for RVs, personal watercraft, rental property, and more. Overall, GEICO has over 17 million policyholders, a 97% customer satisfaction rate, and prides itself on having local offices all over the country for its customers to turn to.
Laura’s staff is unique in that it is truly a family in every sense of the word. Not only does her son-in-law, Eric, work for her, but her husband, David, is also onsite and an integral part of their success. David has over 20 years of experience with GEICO and met Laura shortly after she joined the company. They’ve been married since 2006 and have three children.
For Laura, that means her customers can be confident that their needs will always be taken care of.
“We take a personal approach to every customer, and we make sure they are always taken care of,” Laura said. “We’re also in the perfect spot in Flower Mound. Just the other day, we had a pilot who got off work on a Saturday, saw our sign, and stopped in to get everything switched over. He kept saying, ‘I love that you’re right here. It’s so easy and convenient.’ I wouldn’t have invested everything into this if I didn’t truly believe that I would be here for a very long time.”
