Coleman Yates - Personal Insurance Advisor

Coleman Yates.jpg

Coleman is a DFW native and grew up in Plano before attending the University of Texas.

As a student he worked as an equipment manager for the Longhorn football team all four years.  His last game as a member of the staff was the 2010 National Championship against Alabama at the Rose Bowl.  After graduation he began his professional career as a brand ambassador for craft beers, fine wines, and spirits.  So, he can happily point you in the right direction of a good Pinot, Bourbon, or IPA!

Coleman and his wife, Shelley, live in Uptown with their wonderful dog & two crazy cats!  He is a  member of the Dallas Texas Exes, Saint Andrew United Methodist Church, plays indoor soccer, and softball on his church team.  His passion is supporting all five Dallas sports teams (plus his beloved Longhorns). His favorite aspect of his position at Smith Allen is the opportunity to ease others stress in ways within a need that people don’t typically enjoy dealing with. He does his absolute best to stick to the phrase “God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason. Listen more than you speak.”
