Southwest Bond Services, Inc is a locally owned and operated surety bond agency. President Jenna Sparks worked in her father’s surety company for a number of years, gaining knowledge of the bonding business and benefiting from her dad’s 40+ years of experience in surety bonds. Soon after his retirement in 2012, Southwest Bond Services, Inc was born, with Jenna and staff committed to continuing the tradition of a responsive, service-oriented business, just as her father had.
