About Me

Our agency, The Ted Wilder State Farm Insurance office, is proud to assist Wake Forest, NC with Insurance and Financial Services. We focus on resident relocations to Wake County as well as Franklin and Granville County.

I opened this agency in April, 1994 after working as a Senior Claims Adjuster with State Farm since 1987. I am a lifetime resident of Wake County and a graduate of Campbell University with a B.A in Business Administration. I am married to my wife, Betty, and we have 7 children and 10 grandchildren.

I love being a part of our local community and helping with local events such as our annual Wake Forest Car Show. I am a “Car Guy” so my hobbies involve car activities as well as hunting. I am a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity as well as a Samaritans Purse volunteer through Bay Leaf Church. My agency has earned many awards over the years including The Million Dollar Round Table, State Farm Presidents Club as well as the State Farm Chairman’s Circle.

My team of licensed insurance professionals and I are here to help you with all of your insurance needs. We offer Auto Insurance, Homeowners Insurance, Life Insurance and Financial Services to Wake Forest and the surrounding communities. We are also able to assist small business owners with their Commercial lines of insurance.

The Ted Wilder State Farm Insurance team is looking forward to working with you and helping you create an insurance and financial plan that meets your needs and goals. Email or call us today!
