    Oldsam remember there are always two side to every story. I have had Bob for and agent for over twenty years. He has taken care of me and my family for those twenty years. I think that say's alot about someone and their ability to provide excellent service when needed. Current clients know wonderful the service has been. I am only concerned about my insurance needs not a family issue with his mother. And my needs have been met for over twenty years very nicely. Thank you Bob.

    Outstanding customer service, extremely knowledgeable, and a genuine concern for my welfare is what makes Bob Herring the number one State Farm agent in my book. I can count on his expert opinions, along with his ability to direct me with my investments. Five stars all the way!!!

    If you are looking for an Insurance Agent that is attentive, caring, and willing to make sure your family is covered in any situation, Phil Drick and his team are awesome. We have been with Phil and his team for more than 15 years. We trust Phil and his team with our home, auto and lives! He has always gone out of his way to help us understand our policies and works with us on everything.

    Phil has been my agent for years. He helped my family when we had a major water catastrophe to my home. (I was out of town at the time, which made things very difficult). Phil took care of everything! I don't know what I would have done without his help and the help of his office staff.
