About Cave & Cheney
In 1986, Robert Cave and Denny Cheney left Prudential to form their own insurance brokerage firm, marketing exclusively to attorneys and judges. In the early days, Bob and Denny would travel by car all over Texas, meeting personally with clients in their offices. However, one day due to an illness, Denny decided to hold the appointment over the phone instead. It worked so well, and the attorney appreciated the brevity of the interview, they decided to go forward with that approach. We have been doing business this way ever since.
Since those days, we have expanded to a staff of 50, with six licensed agents in house. Bob Cave has left the firm to pursue other interests, and Douglas Traylor has joined our firm as partner. We now have over 15,000 clients including attorneys, judges, congressmen and former governors.
We believe that the way we interact with our clients makes us unique. At no time do we require our busy clients to sit down for a personal interview. We can take care of everything electronically or over the phone/fax, depending on your preference. After a brief initial interview via fax or email, we will provide you with a quote and a completed application packet requiring only your signature. We will take care of scheduling the mandatory mini-physical, and will send a mobile nurse to your home or office at a time of your choosing. This is all done with the goal of interrupting our clients as little as possible. However, any time you call our firm during business hours, a live receptionist will answer your call (never an automated message service). And if you would like to visit our office in Cedar Park, Texas, we would welcome your visit.
As a broker, we represent over 20 of the top-rated carriers in the country. We will try to choose the best carrier for you, based on your health and family history. However, if that carrier issues a rating that you are unhappy with, we can shop other carriers with no further medical requirements from you.
Once you become our client, we don’t just take the commission and never call again. We will keep you updated on industry changes, and check in with you periodically to see if your needs have changed. We have found that our clients appreciate this – they may have added partners to their business, divorced or remarried, or had children since we last spoke. Once you’re a client of Cave & Cheney, we do our best to show our appreciation!
