Meet Our Team

Matt Pruitt
Agency Owner

I have been in the insurance industry for almost 30 years.  During that span, twenty of those years I was a consultant to all of the top insurance carriers providing advice on how to quote as well as what type of business to have on the books.  By having this experience, I am able to help anyone and everyone on how to minimize costs and in addition upgrade your coverages.  I am fortunate to have a team that has the same goals as I do in making sure that all of your prize possessions are covered.

I grew up in a small town called Talmo GA.  I have degrees from Gainesville State College and Lanier Tech and Brenau University.  My degrees were all in IT.  Life throws us curveballs and now I am 100% devoted to the insurance industry. As an agent in Gainesville, I’ve gotten to know a lot of local families. I enjoy being a part of the community, and building relationships is one of the best parts of my job. I know what life is like in Gainesville — that we choose cars, homes, boats and more to fit our lifestyle and budget. I also know how important it is to do the same when it comes to protecting them. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the solutions that meet your needs.

When I’m not in the office I love playing keys in my band as well as playing with my kids. I love hanging out with my family. I also love to play golf.  I have a love for music, am also the worship minister at Westminster Presbyterian.  I have been doing this for over 10 years. I feel it’s a vital part of growing our community by giving back, I help out with the Thumbs Up Ministry as well as I actively support Eagle Ranch.

I grew up in Lawrenceville GA and played college level tennis. I love helping people understand their coverages and guide them in making the right decisions for their family. I get excited seeing the affect we have on families and the community. I love to spend time with my family and playing golf. As I stated, I am a mean tennis player, well I was back in the day. I still enjoy it. Along with Matt Pruitt, I support the Thumbs Up ministry in addition to the Eagle Ranch ministry.

Jeffrey Lewis
Sales Leader

I have worked with many carriers over the span of my career and my specialty is home, auto and life insurance. I grew up in Ocala Florida and now reside in North Georgia. The aspect that I enjoy most about my line of work is, I love seeing people’s reaction when we help them through a claim and/or explain coverages. Today, people do not understand where the holes are in coverage. I love riding motorcycles which also allows me to be the local expert in insuring motorcycles. In my free time I love to play golf and hanging out with my girl. I Love watching the professional golfers and riding motorcycles. A fun fact about myself is, I have raced motorcycles professionally. I have deeply enjoyed partnering with Matt Pruitt in the community helping charities such as the Thumbs Up Ministry and Eagle Ranch.

Marisa Luque
Office Manager

I have worked with many banks in the past in addition to working with the Matt Pruitt Agency. I am a great fit for this office to assist with organization and helping customers. I grew up in Hall County graduating from Gainesville High School. I went on to study finance at Tulane University where I graduated with honors. I love working with customers and helping people understand what they are purchasing. After a bad experience with my personal insurance, I decided I wanted to give people a ‘better option’ and I received my insurance license. Now I am in control of the experience making sure no one goes through what I did. Definitely spending time with my family. I am a certified Zumba instructor and can be found subbing at gyms and dance studios throughout Northeast Georgia. I love hiking, biking and being outside at her children’s many activities. Along with Matt Pruitt, I love the Thumbs Up ministry in addition to Eagle Ranch.
