Pat Bowar

As the owner of Maxwell & Bowar Agency, I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to all of our customers who have entrusted their insurance responsibilities to us. Since 1982, we have tried to carefully place your business with sound and reputable companies. We have surrounded ourselves with an extremely reputable staff of professional agents and customer service representatives who dedicate their profession to the insurance industry and this community.

In rural business, service is the engine of success. The agency prides itself on individual service, but as equally important-community service. We are so pleased that our employees are in leadership roles within their churches, schools, and organizations. Without this form of dedication, we would have no communities.

Over the past twenty years or so, the insurance industry has drastically changed. Companies have come and gone, insurance products have been revised and enhanced, and insurance rates have obviously kept pace with inflation. What has not changed, is our dedication to you, and our valued staff. We look foward to handling your insurance responsibilities at the Maxwell & Bowar Agency.

We also have 5 realtors in our office to serve your real estate needs. We have been in the real estate business since 1982 as well and are capable of handling all types of real estate sales. Our agency has sold hundreds of homes in the Parkston area over the years as well as many farms and farmground, so we look foward to working with you on all of your real estate needs.
