  • Long time customer.

    I have been with Bob Smith's agency for almost 20 years now, have had several claims, some of which were substantial, and the customer service and ease of which the claims were handled have always been truly superior. If you are checking out this site to determine whether you should switch or not, I would recommend it. His partners and associates are always of a high caliber and actually care about what they do.
