Our History


Theodore & Associates provides property, casualty, life, employee benefits and health insurance solutions for businesses and individuals. Our Commitment to Excellence has made Theodore & Associates one of the most respected independent insurance intermediaries in the Southeast. Service to our clients is our main focus. Our goal is to be a valuable part of our client’s business by protecting them against unforeseen, unavoidable losses, and doing so with as little effort as possible from our client. What makes us different from our competition is our friendly, informed and professional staff and our ability to respond to our clients needs quickly.

The Goldsmith-Theodore Agency was founded in June 1984. It was initially established as a division of the Wm. Goldsmith Agency, which had been an independent insurance agency in the upstate of South Carolina since 1884. Goldsmith-Theodore was developed to provide insurance services throughout the state of South Carolina and most of the southeast. This partnership allowed us to build a stable of financially sound, competitive, insurance markets unsurpassed by any other insurance agency, large or small. In 2007 we changed our name to Theodore & Associates which better represents our local ownership and pride of association.

While you must consider several factors when selecting an insurance agent, we are still locally owned and it shows in the pride we take in providing superior service. With the unique distinction of our roots going back to 1884 we can offer preferential insurance products with only the most respected insurance companies in the world. Theodore & Associates now has offices across the state of South Carolina and is licensed to do business in all southeastern states.
