Earl Carney Insurance founder
Earl Carney, Sr.

“Howdy, neighbor. Come on in!”

The Carney family has been serving the insurance needs of this area since 1980 when Earl Carney opened his Nationwide Insurance office on Davie Avenue in Statesville. Earl’s daughters, Sissy Carney Groce and Saundra Carney, joined the agency in the 90’s and took the reins when Earl retired in 2002. Today, Earl Carney Insurance has offices in Statesville, Troutman, Marshall, and Yadkinville, and our team includes Earl’s grandsons, Nick and Jay Martin. We are dedicated to Earl’s vision of excellent service and his custom of treating everyone that walked through the door like a member of the family.

Statesville, NC

I have placed my insurance with the Earl Carney Insurance Agency for as long as I can remember. They insure my auto, home, boat, and life insurance… basically everything! Needless to say, I place a lot of trust in this agency. They have always been there to assist and advise me on whatever insurance needs I have.

Troutman, NC

I own and manage several multi-family apartment complexes. Nick has been my insurance agent for all of these communities for the past eight years. Nick is always quick to respond and I appreciate the fact that his guidance and expertise is genuine, and he is not just out to sell an insurance policy. I have had a few claims over the years, all of which have gone smoothly. Nick is a top notch insurance agent and is truly is on your side.

Barry was able to breakdown the coverage on our home owners policy and explain how it really covered my family in case of a major catastrophe. He also made sure that we were receiving all discounts available.

Jack W.

Marshall, NC

Earl Carney Insurance of Marshall saved me money on my business insurance.  They also increased my coverage and pointed out where I was leaving my business exposed in case of a claim with my old policy.


Welton Construction, LLC - Asheville, NC

On November 15th my wife and I woke up to our kitchen, bathroom and laundry room flooded. We were in a panic and didn’t know what to do. We immediately called Nick for help. He answered the phone and, in a calming voice, told us everything would be ok. He walked us through the whole claims process and was there every step of the way.  This made everything so easy from start to finish. We would highly recommend Nick Martin and the Earl Carney Insurance Agency for all your insurance needs.
