Your full service Nationwide Insurance agency providing Auto, Home, Life, and Business Insurance solutions.

Established in 1973.  Paul N. Tine – Agency Owner.   Licensed in North Carolina and Virginia.

The Midgett Insurance Agency is proud to be part of the Outer Banks Community. The agency was created in 1973 by Elmer R. Midgett, Jr. of Manteo who established a strong tradition of service in the Agency.   Paul Tine bought the agency in 2005 and CDA Insurance was acquired in 2008.   Over time we have grown from one employee in a small shop in downtown Manteo to two locations with 17 employees serving Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina.   Our Agency has earned one or both of Nationwide’s top awards in each of the past 5 years.

Community Involvement:
We are a community based Agency that is committed to protecting the assets and livelihoods of our neighbors.   We encourage our individual associates to volunteer by sponsoring their memberships and arranging for paid time at volunteer events.   Our employees have been involved in the Outer Banks Marathon, Relay for Life, various Rotary events, and several fundraising events. Our Agency gives back too, by being the signature sponsor of the Currituck Foster Program Tournament and providing regular sponsorships for the Kelly’s Family Foundation, the Outer Banks Community Foundation, the Dare Education Foundation, the Outer Banks Hospital, the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce, the Create the Future Initiative, the Interfaith Community Outreach, the North Banks Rotary, the Manteo Rotary, the Hyde County Angel Tree, the Imagination Library, the Dare County Children and Youth Partnership, and The Lost Colony.   All of us at Midgett Insurance understand that the strength of our community is the most important thing to our own success and we are responsible for helping make our region a better place. In this vain, our next project is going green. We are actively going working towards a paperless environment, we are recycling the products we do use and we are implementing energy efficiency measures to help be a more responsible partner.
