Robert Lee, owner of Robert Lee Insurance Agency
How long have you been in business?
I started in January of 2000 so about 16 years. After 26 years of owning Lee’s muffler shop I was ready for something different.
Why did you choose Anadarko for your business?
It was my hometown and I’ve had opportunities to go other places but I wanted to stay here where I grew up. I was born here and wanted to keep my agency here.
In your words describe your business:
We are an independent agency, which means we write for a number of companies and the advantage to that is we can find a good fit for everybody’s needs because everyone’s needs are different.
What is your biggest challenge as a business owner?
I enjoy helping people with their needs and I don’t see it as a big challenge.
What is the most rewarding part about your job?
Somebody that comes into our business and we are able to help them with their needs or problems through insurance–that is rewarding.

If you had a magic wand to fix anything in your business or the city what would you do?
I would just like to figure out a way to bring more jobs for the people who live in this community.
Why is it important to join the Anadarko Chamber?
Because they are a good steward to the city of anadarko, and they put a positive light on the community. not just for the people who are here but for the visitors as well.
