Meet Dwight Lankford

As the president of Mid-America Estate & Insurance Services, Dwight Lankford is focused on helping clients work toward their retirement dreams through a well-thought-out strategy for retirement income.

Before becoming an insurance professional, Dwight worked in international banking doing loan workouts from 1976 to 1993. Through his travels, he gained experiences in the field, which he could not get anywhere else, by working with people of all backgrounds. As his family grew, however, he knew it was time to stop traveling as much and settle down.

Dwight started Mid-America Estate & Insurance Services in 1995. He focuses on using insurance products to assist with estate, charitable planning and income strategies, working with the business philosophy to always do more than what is expected of him for his clients. His goal is to provide clients with the trusted service they deserve and help them gain the confidence that their money will last as long as they do.

Dwight holds his life and health insurance licenses in a number of states, including Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, where he primarily serves his clients. He has earned the Master Certified Estate Planner (MCEP) designation.

In 2007, Dwight was honored to be named Financial Planner of the Year by Senior Market Advisor magazine.

Dwight also previously hosted a TV show called “Lessons in Prosperity,” where he shared his wealth of financial services knowledge with viewers.

Residing in Spring, Texas, Dwight is the proud father of seven children and the grandfather to 15 grandchildren.  Dwight spends most of his downtime enjoying quality time with his family, riding his Harley, and playing golf.

Meet Brent Lankford

Brent Lankford is executive vice president of Mid-America Estate & Insurance Services, which was founded by his father, Dwight Lankford, in 1995. Brent focuses on using insurance products to assist clients with creating retirement strategies that they can feel confident about.

Brent’s business philosophy is to do everything with honesty, integrity and passion. He started in the insurance and annuity industry following a successful 20-year career owning and running a company he started just out of high school. He wanted to do something more meaningful that brought him closer to his clients. In 2013, the financial services industry drew him in for its promise of helping others improve their lives and financial futures.

Although Brent’s client base stretches across Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, his core area of service is in the northern areas of Greater Houston. He holds his life and health (LAH) licenses in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma.

Brent considers it an honor to share life with his beautiful wife of more than 17 years, Tanya, as well as their three children, Ramsie, Tierney and Burke. The family lives in The Woodlands, Texas. When Brent is away from the office, he can be found spending time with his family, riding his Harley or improving his fitness.
