Farley Insurance Group

At Farley Insurance Group we are not employed by an insurance company. We are offering you your choice of insurance companies. We’ll do the leg work to secure the best coverage and then the best rate we can find for your policies. At Farley Insurance company we represent you, not the insurance carrier.

Brent Farley

Principal Agent

I grew up on my grandfather’s farm in Southwest Virginia and have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Emmanuel College. I have 14 years of experience in the insurance industry with 11 of those years working as an agent. The thing that most excites me about our agency is that we offer security to individuals that wouldn’t be available without the insurance industry.

I really love my wife (Kerah) and kids (Damon (8), Andi (6), Cooper (3)) and when I’m not in the office, you can usually find me watching my kids sports, mountain biking, or spending the night around a firepit with my family!

Ben Beard


I grew up in Huntersville, NC where my family originally settled in the mid-1700s and I attended Pfeiffer University for both undergraduate and graduate school. I have been in the insurance industry for 10 years and I have been at Farley Insurance Group since 2015.

In my time away from work, I enjoy hunting and golfing. Otherwise, most of my free time is spent with my family, which is what I enjoy the most.

Heather Jacobs


I grew up in Burgettstown, PA which is a small town outside of Pittsburgh. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I joined Farley Insurance Group in 2016 and through this position, I enjoy helping people understand insurance and making sure they have a policy that best suits their needs.

I also love spending time with my family, my husband Jon, and my two kids Daphne and Isaac. I really enjoy watching my son play soccer and traveling to the Outer Banks whenever possible. My husband and I love to go to local Charlotte breweries, no matter the season. You can usually find me hanging out with family and friends or at my son’s soccer games.

Matt Lowrance


I was born in Mississippi but raised in the Wesley Chapel/Weddington area just outside Charlotte. I was in the inaugural class of graduates at Weddington High School in 2002.

I started in the insurance industry in 2018 after leaving the retail world for more of a work-life balance. Since then, I’ve worked for a few different insurance companies and didn’t like only having one solution for my clients so being able to provide them with options now is great. I’m excited to bring my retail management experience and relational skills to provide exemplary products and services to my clients.

I am a HUGE music fan, as well as an avid member of the off-road community. I’m also a big fan of astronomy and astrophysics. When not at work, I surround myself with my blended family of 4 children, family, and friends. I’m also very passionate about and a big advocate for Veterans and the Alzheimer’s Association.

Nicole Pastorino

Account Manager

I grew up in New York and have been in the insurance industry for over 7 years. Over that time, I have worked with captive and independent agents. What I like most about this position is working with people and educating our insureds in order to meet their needs and goals. I really enjoy helping others. When I’m not at the office, you can usually find me doing some sort of outdoor activies!

Personal Lines Account Manager

I was born and raised in Boston, MA. I attended college at Suffolk University Sawyer School of Management and I have over 15 years of personal lines insurance experience and 3 years of commercial lines experience.

I enjoy meeting new people through my job and helping them with their insurance needs.

Outside of the office, I enjoy traveling, reading suspense novels, watching movies, and attending plays. I also love spending time on the beach and eating chocolate. Other than that, I love going to movies and spending time with family and friends!

Tyler Windham

Commercial Lines Broker

I grew up in Columbus, GA. I attended Auburn University and then transferred and graduated from Columbus State University. I have been in Insurance my entire professional career – I spent 3 years working for an agency in Georgia and then moved to North Carolina to open my own office where I spent the next two years. I have been with Farley Insurance for just over 2 years now focusing on commercial insurance. My favorite thing about this profession is meeting with clients and getting to know their businesses and their “why’s” for getting into business for themselves.

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy fishing, grilling, golf, and visiting local breweries. You can pretty much always find me on the golf course or spending time with friends at a local establishment. One thing most people don’t know about me is that I am an Eagle Scout!
