The experienced team of Sawyer Phillips & Associates includes (L to R): Callie Burlin, Wes Phillips, Karen Davis, Teresa Potter, John Sawyer and Laura Carter.

John C. Sawyer and Wes Phillips merged and founded Sawyer Phillips & Associates in January of 2010. Seasoned veterans of the insurance industry, John, Wes and their experienced support team at Sawyer Phillips & Associates have evolved the company into a trusted coverage resource for individuals, ­families and businesses, with the highest priority to provide unmatched service and ­commitment to their clients. As John is fond of saying, “Business goes where it wants, but it stays where it is appreciated.” Sawyer Phillips is a long-standing, client-focused Oklahoma insurance agency.

    As an independent agent, Sawyer Phillips & Associates provides home, auto, boat, motorcycle, workers ­compensation and business insurance. It is one of the few certified ­agencies with The Hartford qualified to offer AARP Insurance. Some of the other insurance ­companies the ­company ­represents in ­addition to The Hartford are Travelers, Safeco, Progressive, Hanover, MetLife, CNA, Columbia Insurance, EMC Insurance, and State Auto Insurance. Sawyer Phillips represents a total of 30+ companies.   

    Some of the personal insurance policies Sawyer Phillips provides include auto, home, condo, renters, flood, motorcycle, off-road vehicles, watercraft, life, health, windstorm, wedding, earthquake and more. Sawyer Phillips insures all types of business, offering general and excess liability, commercial property, commercial auto, workers compensation, bonds, and business owners policies. See ­ for more information.

    The support staff at Sawyer Phillips consists of Callie Burlin, receptionist and assistant commercial ­customer service ­representative; Karen Davis, senior ­commercial customer service representative; Laura Carter, personal insurance customer service ­representative; and Teresa Potter, personal ­insurance customer service ­representative. “We sifted through a lot of sand to find our diamonds,” said Wes, “and each of these young ladies contributes to making our company the success it is today.” Wes and John have clients that have been with them 20 years and more. “We’re in a very competitive business,” said John, “and each Sawyer Phillips ­employee understands the importance of providing ­outstanding customer service to each of our valued clients.”  

    “Customer retention and word-of-mouth referrals are two key elements in our ­success,” stated Wes. Many insurance companies are ­leaving Oklahoma or offering restricted policy coverage because of our state’s ­reputation for frequent hail storms and tornados. John added that most insurance companies cannot make a profit in Oklahoma because of the number of storms and the extent of the damages left in their wake.

    If you’re not sure what loss exposures you may face or what you might hope to gain from your insurance, give Wes or John a call. They will take the time to fully ­evaluate all your coverage needs so that your biggest assets will be protected at the most competitive rates ­available in our area. Sawyer Phillips also pledges that their inclusive solutions are capable of giving you increased peace of mind resulting from ­knowing that what matters most to you will be protected.

    Sawyer Phillips & Associates proudly provides insurance coverage to ­residents across the state including Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Glenpool, Sapulpa, Skiatook, Coweta, Mounds and beyond. Their extensive network of local and national coverage providers – and the entire staff’s detailed ­insurance knowledge – will ensure that the perfect ­insurance plan will be tailored to match your specific ­individual or business needs.
