McAfee Insurance Agency, Inc. has served the insurance needs of East Texas for are over 30 years. From its humble beginning in 1981 this local, family owned and operated company has grown to include more than 4000 clients. By maintaining the honest, customer centered approach instilled by its founder Cozell McAfee, McAfee Insurance Agency, Inc. has become a leader in the Mabank/Cedar Creek Lake community and a trusted name across East Texas.
Born and raised in the Mabank area, Cozell McAfee obtained a small Germania Insurance Chapter from Bobby Pleasant in 1981, and he and his wife, Stella, opened McAfee Insurance Agency out of their home at 108 E. Kaufman St. in Mabank.
Joined by their son, Don McAfee in 1988 the Agency grew and in 1994 incorporated to become McAfee Insurance Agency, Inc. The next year, daughter Diane (McAfee) Mixon joined and after outgrowing the small in-home office on Kaufman Street, the Agency moved to 111 E. Market Street in Mabank. In 1998 Don and Diane purchased the company from their father, Cozell, and moved forward as equal partners.
Additional expansion in 2004 brought Michael “Hutch” Hutchison to the company. Born and raised in Mabank, Hutch brought with him familiarity with the Mabank/Cedar Creek Lake community and the honest, personal approach McAfee Insurance was founded on.
In 2006 a devastating fire destroyed four buildings in downtown Mabank including McAfee Insurance. After temporarily relocating across the street the family refused to abandon the historic downtown area and vowed to rebuild their office in the same location. Exactly one year after the fire, the McAfee Insurance building reopened in its present location, this time encompassing 111 and 113 E. Market Street.
Deedra (McAfee) Williams joined her brother Don and sister Diane at the Agency in 2010. With all three children now aboard, Cozell and Stella have seen McAfee Insurance Agency grow from a fledgling business in 1981 to what it is today. Although the location and size of the company has changed over the years, the honest and personal attention given to each customer has never waivered. Under the direction of Don and Diane, this customer-centered approach is something on which clients can always depend.
