About Carolina Insurance Group

Your Local Independent Agent, Working for You.

As a part of the local community, Carolina Insurance Group is dedicated to helping our neighbors thrive. We do this by providing the personal insurance and business policies that will best protect you. Because we are independent agents, we work for you. This means we are able to provide more choices from more insurance companies – between 30 and 40 reputable companies – and give you the best options to consider.

Our staff excels in tailoring insurance to meet individual needs and provides friendly, personal service that makes our customers’ lives easier. We build lifelong relationships as our customers rely on our expertise and trust us to provide advice that keeps them covered as their lives – and their needs ­– change.


We pride ourselves on two things: connecting with our clients in a personal way and providing excellent insurance products that result from our in-depth industry experience. Our agents have a combined 300 years of experience so for any problem you may have, we know how to help. It’s important to us when our clients call, they talk to an experienced owner or manager. Plus, we interact with our clients daily. We eat in their restaurants, purchase supplies from their stores, and hire them when we have a building project.

Our executives are a vital part of the local community. Owner Joel Sauls has worked in insurance for more than three decades. He has a wife and family to protect and understands your need for quality coverage. He has lived in Lexington, SC, for more than 20 years.

Our team members serve South Carolinians statewide, each based from the towns shown.
