About Us

We are an independent insurance agency who opened our doors in 2004. We started with the idea that we would be a local, independent, multiple-lines insurance broker. Cordell Insurance Agency is located locally in Old Hickory. We offer personalized service to Nashville and the greater Middle Tennessee area. We have also added service to the state of Kentucky.

Our goals are to get to know our families by name and to give them the best insurance products. At Cordell Insurance Agency, we work with top-notch insurance companies like Safeco, Travelers, and Progressive to provide you with the best insurance options. Because we are a local, independent insurance agency, we are here for you when you have a claim.

In 2010, the partnership between Bobby and Kay Cordell, the original owners, unfortunately ended. Kay Cordell transformed into the “Insurance Ninja” and kept at it. Cordell Insurance Agency has been a huge blessing that has allowed her to support her two school-aged children while she was a single mom.

The agency has blossomed since then and has has grown to include a few more Insurance Ninjas. In addition to providing superior insurance products and services, we enjoy the relationships we have with our clients – laughing and crying with them. At Cordell Insurance Agency, we view our clients as family. And we are proud to be your Insurance Ninjas!

          Short-Term & Long-Term Rentals

          Short Term VS Long-Term Rentals
          We have many clients investing in short-term and long-term rentals right now. This doesn't surprise us. Middle Tennessee is booming and that includes the rental market. But many of our insureds don't know the difference between these two types of rentals. Short-Term Versus Long-Term Rentals To keep it simple, short-term rentals typically have a lease of 6 months or less. This includes VERBO, AirBnB, and seasonal leases.Long-term rentals have a lease of 6 months or longer. How To Insure Your Rental How you insure your rental property depends on a couple factors. Is this your primary home? Are you renting part or all of your home? Based on the answers to these questions, and knowing how long you are renting the property, will help your agent determine the best landlord policy to protect you. Check with the local government in your area to see if a permit is needed. We also make...

          What is telematics? And how I learned that I am a better driver than my husband!

          What is telematics? Well, if we have quoted your auto insurance recently, we probably mentioned telematics. Most car insurance companies have their own spin on it, but at the end of the day, they are mostly similar. Telematics is a program that car insurance companies are using more and more to offer a discount of up to 30% (and sometimes a surcharge) based on your driving habits. The programs typically offer an initial discount for trying the program. Then, after 90 days of monitoring your driving, they offer a larger or smaller discount. Keep in mind that some companies may increase your rate, but that is a very small percentage of drivers. How does it work? You register for the program and download an app on your phone. There is usually an email sent to you with a code to connect your phone to your telematics account. Then, you drive...
