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, Travlers 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 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!
