Terri Rogers, owner of Rogers Insurance Agency
How long have you been in business?
Since 2012, so about four years now. The insurance business has been in the family going back to the 1950s. I bought the business in 2012 and previously it was Pruitt Insurance.
Why did you choose Anadarko?
In 1999 I became a full agent and I do love this work. We were married in 1979 and we have raised our family here so this is home.
In your words describe your business:
I sell property and casualty insurance and commercial insurance. I also sell bonds. I do a lot of farm and grazing bonds.
What is your biggest challenge as a business owner?
Just trying to get awareness out about our business. There are a lot of insurance companies out there which means a lot of competition for customers.
What is the most rewarding part about your job?
The number one thing is making customers happy. When I have customers that come in and visit and let us know that they are satisfied with how we have been able to help them.
If you had a magic wand to fix anything in your business or the city what would you do?
I would just like to see our town grow. If our town grows and the money stays local our people do better.
Why is it important to join the Anadarko Chamber?
It helps to promote our businesses around town. If our businesses aren’t connected then it is tough to get the word out. We have to work together to build up our community.
