"We were looking to switch Insurance Companies due to lack of communication from prior agent. We had spoken to Kellie Wright earlier in the year, and when our current policies with another company had not gotten the changes we required, we decided the time was right to jump ship with that company. Kellie has been in touch with us during the whole process, and has gotten back to us without delay. If we had questions, she was quick to respond and on the difficult items, she did the legwork and got us accurate information. Kellie has developed our Personal Insurance Plan, setting us up with better coverage than we had at a price that is overall less than what we were paying. The communication is key to us, and with this new relationship, it is stellar!! Thank You Kellie Wright!!"

"I am a new customer to State Farm and we bundled our home and auto insurance with them. Our agent representative was Jacob, and he was spectacular. He answered all questions and did things in a timely fashion. Our mortgage company was being difficult and slow in their part of the process, but Jacob was able to make it work. I highly recommend this group."

"I have a real time Jake from State Farm and he’s the best most informative helpful and friendly. Most defiantly recommend to you and your family for fast friendly and caring associate. I was able to bundle a variety of services and he explained everything he offered from life insurance whether grouping together or seperate, auto insurance & homeowners insurance, boat insurance. Even an option i wish would been told to do for kids since birth, something all parents/grandparents should be aware of to help make great financial options available for their loved ones."
