The Craven Agency Mission


Russ Craven



Russ has over 20 years experience in the Manufactured Housing Industry. He has a passion for sharing his insurance expertise to educate and protect both personal assets and businesses. Russ has a caring heart, and is always willing to lend a helping hand. In his spare time, he enjoys running, fishing, and caring for his Aunt June.


With a desire to help people achieve their goals and add value to their lives, Russ Craven was inspired to start a new journey in 2019. He sold his housing dealership to search for a fresh challenge.

He initially considered venturing into financial products and retirement planning. However, during his research phase, a friend suggested he explore the insurance industry since he already had an insurance license. This friend also pointed out the added advantage of financial products that come with this industry.

This was the eureka moment, and it led to the creation of The Craven Agency. Although having faced some obstacles, such as the COVID pandemic, The Craven Agency managed to grow steadily over time while remaining committed to their mission of helping as many people as possible in the Louisiana and Ark-La-Tex region.


At The Craven Agency, our values are more than just words. They are the principles that guide us in everything we do, and we are committed to upholding them in all our interactions with our clients and the community at large.

    • Honesty and Integrity.  We believe in transparency and open communication with our clients, ensuring they understand every aspect of their insurance policies. Insurance policies can be complex, and we make every effort to explain them in a clear and concise manner. We believe that our clients have the right to know exactly what they are paying for and what their policy covers. Our business is conducted with the highest ethical standards, and we strive to build trust with our clients through our actions.

    • Protection. We understand that life is unpredictable, and we strive to provide our clients with comprehensive protection against risks that can have a significant impact on their lives. We believe in taking a proactive approach to risk management, and we work with our clients to identify potential risks and develop solutions to mitigate them.
    • Innovation. We understand the importance of staying ahead of the curve in a rapidly changing world. We continuously explore new ideas and technologies to improve our services.
