GEICO opens local office to serve North Dallas residents

THE COLONY, Texas, March 22, 2017 – GEICO has opened a new local office in The Colony area of North Dallas at 5733 State Highway 121, across from the Nebraska Furniture Mart. Seasoned GEICO agent Matt Bischof will lead a team of five licensed agents at the new location.

"North Dallas has seen unprecedented growth with many major corporations opening offices in the area," Bischof said. "We look forward to bringing Denton and Collin County customers great rates along with a personal touch for all their insurance needs."

Bischof comes to North Dallas after leading a GEICO local office in Charleston, West Virginia for the past seven years. He and his team of agents—Samantha Gwynn, Makayla Hartness, Travis Garrett, Jordan Boss and David Sexton—can help customers with auto policies, as well as boat coverage for those who like to spend time on Lewisville Lake, and can also handle homeowners, renters, umbrella, motorcycle and more lines of insurance. To better meet the needs of the vibrant North Dallas multicultural population, several staff members are bilingual and can also speak Spanish.

GEICO agents in the North Dallas local office look to bring savings to policyholders through multi-line and special association discounts, and to those who take an approved defensive driving course in the state of Texas. Additionally, members of certain alumni associations such as Texas A&M, TCU, Texas State, Texas Tech and University of North Texas could qualify for an alumni discount.
