Farmers Insurance Agent in Cleveland, TN

James Wallace Bynum
About Me

Rating 4.9

I am proud to serve the Tennessee area as your local Farmers® agent. I feel blessed to be able to call this area my life-long home, and I love connecting with my neighbors to help them make the right insurance and retirement decisions - whether it's retirement planning, auto, home, commercial insurance, or more!

When we sit down with you we take the time to understand your situation, insurance, and retirement needs. Our priority is to make you smarter and more educated about insurance and retirement so that when it comes time for you to make a decision regarding insurance or retirement planning you have all of the information you need.

When I'm not in the office, I love to spend time with my family. I have four children and four grandchildren being raised right here in the Tennessee Valley. You might also catch me spending a weekend afternoon on the golf course. If you ever need to discuss golf cart insurance, we can talk about it on the course!

Come by and see me sometime! I'm located downtown in the Historic District, just one block south of the courthouse on Broad St. I'd love to sit down to discuss insurance and retirement planning with you today.

Give me a call at (423) 790-7757 and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    We were recently in the market for a new homeowner's policy and after receiving quotes from several agents we found that Farmers was the best fit for us. Mr. Bynum's staff has been very helpful and professional. I had several questions, Pam was very patient and understanding in answering them. I cannot say enough good about Mr. Bynum and his staff. Given the opportunity I would recommend Mr. Bynum's office to any of my friends and family.

    James has been so patient and understanding thru my ignorance. He spent so much time working me thru it all. I went with another company and soon found out what a huge mistake that was. James was so very patient when I called him back. He has taken care of my needs and answered every question I had. I am so happy to have found James and this company! Thank you James!
