Parkwood Insurance

Parkwood Insurance is a full-service independent insurance agency. We provide auto, home, life and business insurance through a broad range of highly reputable national insurance companies for our clients in Frisco, Collin County, and the entire state of Texas.

Unlike a “captive” or direct insurance company, which only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.

When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.

At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients. We have decades of industry experience and the expertise to get you the best insurance coverage for you and your family!

Chris Wycoff, Owner

Chris Wycoff founded Parkwood Insurance in 1998.  As CEO, his number one goal is to be your trusted insurance advisor in order to protect your financial future with the insurance products we provide.  

Before starting his agency, Chris moved to Frisco in 1997 while he and his wife, Amy, were finishing their degrees at the University of North Texas. This was long before Frisco started growing rapidly. Chris, his family, and his agency have all enjoyed being a part of Frisco’s unbelievable growth in the past few decades.

Chris has been married to his wife Amy since 1995 and they have 2 children, Austin and Allie, who both attend the University of Arkansas. In his spare time, Chris enjoys the outdoors, biking, hiking, travel, the beach, visiting his children in Fayetteville where they go to college, music and concerts, practicing the harmonica, and racing dirtbikes.
