About Our Agency

 

Founded in 1968 by Bill Russell, BRIA (Bill Russell Insurance Agency) initially represented a direct writer. In 1980, in response to the changing needs of his clients, Bill changed the direction of the agency by representing multiple carriers. In 1983, with the addition of Bob Russell as CFO and John Buchanan as Vice President, BRIA continued to steadily grow and adapt in the Texas business environment. In 1997, Bill, along with six other agency owners, had the foresight and ingenuity to form Combined Agents of America, LLC (CAA). By doing so, BRIA was able to provide its clients a broader range of insurance products and services while retaining the personal touch of a locally owned agency. In 2004, BRIA added a risk management division as a service to its clients. Today, BRIA remains locally owned and operated as a full-service, independent insurance agency committed to providing the highest levels of customer service coupled with the best coverage tailored to each customers needs.

Our Providers

We have been using BRIA as our insurance provider for over twenty years and have been very pleased with their service and expertise in handling all of our claims. We have been approached by other companies and BRIA has continued to deliver better service and more.
Ralph E. Wilson - Wilson Roofing
Many thanks again for the turkey and the wine for me. So often, I get forgotten in the shuffle. You are the best insurance agent I have ever seen. Bill and Dee Dee and Dawn are so prompt.
Pat Turner - Ideal National Mechanical
Since the inception of SunTerra Landscape Services in 2005, we've partnered with John Buchanan and BRIA. Over that time, they have come to be trusted advisors and, probably more importantly, advocates on our behalf. BRIA helps me understand the strengths and weaknesses of each carrier.
Chris Carmouche - SunTerra Landscape Systems
We've worked with BRIA Insurance and Risk Consultants for several years and have been very pleased with their professionalism, service and thorough approach to assessing areas of potential risk in our operations.
Kevin Kelleher San Luis Spirits
We have used BRIA for our overall insurance needs for almost 20 years and really appreciate all of the comparisons they give us. Our professional liability has always been somewhat of a problem because of the area of our practice and they have worked very hard.
Jean Nelle Ray, Wood & Bonilla
I have enjoyed doing business with BRIA since the late 60s. I consider Bill a man of high integrity and have enjoyed seeing his business grow to serve more clients with new services. BRIA has worked to create a good value and excellent service.
Michael N. Hart, P.E. Energy Engineering Associates
The level of service our company receives from BRIA is consistently fast, friendly, efficient, and reliable. I never hesitate to call for advice because talking to my agent at BRIA is more like talking to a friend.
Linda - RZ Communications
BRIA has been our insurance broker for over 15 years. They are not only the best brokers, but have become our best friends. The staff is professional, responsive and extremely knowledgeable of the insurance market. BRIA does a fantastic job of assessing our needs, going above and beyond.
