I transitioned to insurance and Allstate after my engineering career so I could work more with the community. I often thought of owning my own business, but I wasn’t sure of what my life calling was, the best place to put myself to make a difference, or even how to start. When I decided to become an Allstate agency owner, this dream was realized for me. I get to talk with people in Georgia and South Carolina about not only their insurance needs, but things going on in their life. I look for opportunities to help and relationships that I can build on.
I am just a normal guy who wants to make a difference in this world. I grew up in Elberton, GA and moved to South Carolina when I was 17 years old. I graduated from Seneca High School in 1991 and then attended Clemson University. I have been married since 1995 to Christy Peters–a wonderful wife, mother, and piano teacher. I have 2 great kids, Brady and Jenna. Family and faith are important to me and has given me the heart to care for people.
I would rather see my agency prosper as a ministry than a business. I am more of the type to help people silently than be flamboyant and publish it on Facebook or Twitter; although there are times that we need to celebrate on social media as well. I would want everyone to know that doing business with The Mike Peters Agency is doing more than just providing insurance, but also giving myself and my staff a chance to help our community. The more policies we write, the more lives we can affect positively. Our mission is Community, Coverage, and Communication. My staff and I will find the answers to your insurance needs and find ways to protect the things you love.
