Meet Our Team

Kyle Houston
Agency Owner

I began working in the insurance industry in 2014.  In 2016, I left State Farm and began working with Allstate. I became an Allstate Agency Owner in January of 2017.

I was born in Statesville, NC and have lived here most of my life. I went to UNC Charlotte where I studied Political Science, Economics, and Computer Science.

I am a techie and I enjoy exploring and talking about the new technologies that are changing the way people live their lives and the way companies do business.  I am always testing out the next best thing! When it comes to guilty pleasures, I love going out for Karaoke multiple times per week.

After work, you can usually find me out at one of the local businesses or restaurants in the historic downtown Statesville.

I love spending time out in the community working on volunteer projects with the Greater Statesville Rotary Club and the Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce. I also volunteer time at Fifth Street Ministries in Statesville and, additionally, am a corporate sponsor of the Iredell Performing Arts Live.

I have worked in the insurance industry for over 6 years. I strive to make my customers a priority and am always accessible and understand their needs.

Originally born in North Carolina I have lived in many counties throughout the state while raising my two children. I truly enjoy working with my family every day!

In my free time, I enjoy taking weekend trips to Asheville, Blowing Rock and the beach. I also love golf and any outdoor activity! I enjoy working on crafts with my family and especially love doing calligraphy and painting.

When it comes to volunteering, I am passionate about Hospice of Iredell county.

Lisa Fox
Associate Agent

My experience in the insurance industry has been very rewarding.  I, personally, love the opportunity to meet different people everyday.

I grew up in Statesville, North Carolina.  I am now raising my family here and have homeschooled my children until high school.

I love being able to help people when they need it most! I enjoy being able to help someone when they’ve had a tough time.

When I’m not working, I’m at the soccer field with my kids!

Kortney Houston
Associate Agent

I have been in the insurance industry for a little over a year.

I grew up in North Carolina and am licensed in cosmetology, but made my way to the insurance industry when my family opened their own agency.

Overall, I enjoy being a trusted advisor and I love being an integral part of my community!

When I’m not working, I like to take trips to the mountains and hike. I also love to sing and play the guitar!

Charlene Beeson

I began my insurance career as a Licensed Sales Professional and Office Manager with Beeson Insurance Group. Now I’m very excited to join the Houston Insurance Agency as an Associate Agent! I have helped hundreds of wonderful families get the coverage they need and am here to support. I look forward to using my experience to advise my clients anytime they need me. Knowing that my community is properly protected when the unexpected happens gives me peace of mind. When you join our agency, you are joining a family and I’ll do everything in my power to do what’s best for you!

 

I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and moved to Statesville in 2004. When I’m not in the office, I really love time with my family, long walks, waterfalls, and playing games with the kids.  They grow up too fast and I want to take advantage of all the time I have with them. I’ve come to realize the older I get the younger my parents are! My parents have been an excellent role models and I can only hope I set the same that same example for my family. We love going to the beach, a little sand and sunshine never hurt anybody! I grew up in the mountains and can relax and rejuvenate when we go home to enjoy time with my parents.

 

Believe it or not, I enjoy sports, despite not being a very good aim!  I’m on a bowling team now, and I think they just love me for my handicap LOL.  I like a challenge so I’ve done the jump from the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, jumped off a 20′ cliff in Jamaica, and of course, love the rides at Carowinds.

 

I am able to give back to my community by organizing a Walk Through the Bible in Wilkesboro, creating Christmas Floats, and coaching TYAA Cheerleading, Basketball, and Volleyball.   My passion is working with kids and most say it’s because I’m a big kid myself!

 

Richard Beeson
Office Manager for Taylorville Highway Location

Before starting at the Houston Insurance Agency, I actually opened my own agency in December of 2017. I’m excited to bring my experience and passion to this team! Educating my family, friends and neighbors on what on what kind of coverage they have and what it means is my top priority. If I’ve made my customer understand their financial exposure if they are not properly covered I feel like I’ve done my job!

 

I was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In 2016, I made the move to Statesville from the Piedmont Triad area. If I’m in town, check the local bowling centers! I enjoy all sports, but I am an avid bowler. Many of my customers don’t know that I was a professional bowler, who even toured the South Region! I have been fortunate to have bowled 8 Perfect (300)Games and 3 800 series during competition. I competed against the best: Norm Duke, Pete Weber, Jason Belmonte, Tom Baker, George Pappas, Guppy Troup, & Kyle Troup just to name a few. I hope to return to Pro status in the near future. If I’m not bowling, I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends.

 

Being an active member of the community is something I take very seriously. I am a member of the Statesville Chamber of Commerce. I currently serve on the Statesville USBC Board of Directors, The Southeast Bowling Association Board of Directors and the past Vice President for the NC State Bowling Association. And of course, I am also a youth bowling coach!

I began in the insurance industry a year ago with State Farm. A year later, I am excited to be starting my journey here at Houston Insurance Agency! I really enjoy being a trusted advisor for our community. Ensuring that my customers are properly protected is my top priority.

I grew up on Union Grove, North Carolina. Iredell county is home and I’m proud to be living in and working for this community. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Elementary Education. When I’m not looking out for my customers’ best interests, I enjoy spending time with my sister. You can usually catch me and my friends out eating and having the best time. I’d say that the beach is like my second home. Nothing beats relaxing on the beach by the ocean. I collect lighthouses and I have a lot of nautical shirts!
My community is important to me and I proud to be I am actively involved with my church, Smith Chapel Church in Union Grove NC. and I love my church family
