"1. Car rates went up. No tickets, no accidents, but premiums still went up! 2. Went in last Thursday to pay the car insurance, no one was at the front desk. I put the check with the envelope that was sent with the invoice in their long red box that says payments here. Guess what? No sign of the payment. They think the mail carrier picked it up by mistake. There was NO stamp or return address on the envelope. Because I have done this for many years. Had to write a new check for insurance. I received a call from Mark, he said he will change the way payments are deposited up front. (Good idea). Like everything else, prices are going up. Glad he called trying to make it right. THANKS!"

"Worst experience with an insurance agency I’ve ever had. Mark did not properly insure our property. When we filed a claim it was denied because we were not issued a separate policy for a building on our property. After a heated conversation with Mark, he admitted that if the policy was properly written when he came to our house it would’ve been covered. When given the chance to remedy the situation he did nothing. He replied “I’m sorry” and I’m out $50,000 for a building that should have been covered by the insurance agent I hired to insure my home and property. I spoke with a FEMA agent at length, I was informed by FEMA that the State Farm agent that I hired was responsible for setting up the policy. I don't know what there is to discuss? You have all my contact info, you won't reach out to me, I have to contact "your office"???? (which I did several times but Mark was never available) Who am I supposed to contact at your office, you didn't leave a name or contact info. This is the customer service I've come to expect from State Farm, especially this office. State Farm is sued by its own clients more than any other insurance agency out there. Not a good neighbor!"

"When we needed insurance for the houses/duplexes we were purchasing & rehabbing to rent I found Mark’s information and gave him a call. I’d been in Genoa to adopt a dog and picked up his card at the shelter. That was in May of 2017 and we’re still doing business together 5 yrs later. Mark is very professional, provides me with answers quickly and explains insurance so I can understand and not feel like I’m out in left field. His team is beyond knowledgeable and helpful. No matter who answers the phone, Shelby, Maria or Gabriela, I know I’m going to get my needs taken care of quickly. Gabriela stays on top of our houses/auto accounts and reminds me when I need to re-access or make changes. When she calls, it’s not just business, it’s hearing from a friend! Thank You All So Much…You Are Appreciated!"
