In 1970, Mr. & Mrs. Al Villasana opened the doors to Northwest Insurance Agency and have been providing Texas with quality insurance investment products, & outstanding customer service since 1970.
As one of only a few insurance agencies catering to the Hispanic Community, Al’s services were in dire need as the community around him began to grow.
New members of the community who were unfamiliar with the benefits of insurance coverage needed to be educated by someone they could trust. With his baritone voice and friendly nature, Al made an unforgettable impression on his new clients and their trust was gained almost immediately.
As years passed, Al would continue these relationships not only as “the insurance man,” but also as a soccer coach, fill-in crossing guard, and the community leader.
Al is a firm believer in hard work and has instilled this trait in his two sons, Mark and Eric. After school and on weekends, Mark would go to work for his father at the insurance agency. It was during this time he really learned how to communicate in a business environment. It was also during this time that his father emphasized the power and necessity of education in today’s society.
Mark took his education seriously and graduated with a degree from Southern Methodist University. Now Al has given his son the opportunity and the ability to run his own company. Mark picked up where his father left off giving back to the community what the community has given them – trust and loyalty.
