Life, Health, Disability & Long Term Insurance
I wanted to take the time to say thank you. Thank you for being more than an insurance agent. Over the past 35 years I have dealt with numerous insurance companies for business and personal needs and the respective agents have basically done what was asked or needed. When problems arose there was some intervention but ultimately it was left to me with the insurance companies to iron out the issues. You are different. A few months ago an incident and a detail with my coverage had painted me into a corner. I cannot think of any other agent I have dealt with in the past that would have stepped up to the situation and worked with me and the insurance company the way you did. Thank you, again. If I can provide a personal referral at any time, please don't hesitate to call. I look forward to many years of informed and professional coverage with you and your company. — John R. Proto
