About Our Agency
As an independently owned and operated insurance agency, you can count on Florida Heritage Insurance for personalized insurance plans and support. Since 2009, we have worked with individual and business clients here in Wesley Chapel, FL and across the state to find the solutions they need to keep their family, belongings, and companies protected.
A Heritage of Insurance Excellence
Our owner and founder, Linda Nelson, has spent her career in customer services and is committed to helping people. Some years ago, she was involved in an auto accident and found out she didn’t have the coverage she thought she had or needed. During her recovery, she read everything she could about insurance and became passionate about helping people understand their coverage options.
In 2004, she had the chance to fulfill her dream of becoming a licensed insurance agent and started her career in insurance. Five years later, she became owner and principal agent of Florida Heritage Insurance, a company who from its beginning has provided clients with the help and guidance they need. From offering you with free quotes, claims assistance, and helping you find the right policies, we are here for you.
