A message from Forester Adams:

With the start of a new year come exciting changes! I am thrilled to announce that as of December 29, 2023, MAI has joined Main Street Insurance Group. I will continue as a Partner of Main Street, and your service team remains available to assist with any questions.

This partnership enables us to perpetuate our long ties and investment in the community while creating broader capabilities and service offerings for you, our most loyal clients and neighbors. Our combined experience demonstrates more than three centuries of collective expertise. Our expanded partnership also positions Main Street Insurance Group for steady growth and the opportunity to serve customers and communities from Western North Carolina to Georgia and many points in between.

There will be no changes in your current policies or coverage during this transition. In addition, Main Street will remain an independent agency, aligned with the strength and resources of the Keystone Insurance Group network. We welcome every MAI client to the Main Street community!
If you have any questions about the recent changes, please contact me at [email protected] or 706-722-8338. The Augusta office will remain open to continue serving our clients and community. We look forward to an exciting 2024, and, as always, we value the opportunity to serve you.
