Auto, Home, Business Insurance for Alvin, Pearland Texas


Independent Insurance Counselors (IIC) was established in 1964 by James A. Lansford. Since 1964, IIC has been located in three downtown Alvin locations. In April 2004, we purchased and renovated our current location, 302 S. Gordon. We completed the move in January 2005. Even though we have moved three times in the past 50+ years, there are certain things that have never changed:


  • Lansford family ownership
  • Quality insurance company representations
  • IIC is a service-oriented insurance company
  • We’re still having fun in a challenging business
