“Call Kim or Kat. I was on the phone for 8 minutes and got a great deal. I was good to go when I was off the phone. Great service and fast.”

“I was a little skeptical at first given the low rates however, I did a lot of research on the company and it all checked out, at least from my perspective. I then got back to Kristene, who originally sent me a prompt quote in response to me request, and she was exceptional at getting our coverage set up. Very professional and courteous. I hope i never have to find out how their claims process works but if it's anything like the service i have received so far, I will be very happy.”
