    Ann was very nice and helpful. I think she was guiding us right but I thought that John Altenbern was our agent. I thought he could have at least come out and said Hi. I like Farmers Insurance and wanted an agent close so if I have a problem I can talk to him. Guess I talk to Ann and she is my agent.not John. He sat in the other room and I never did get to meet John. I am 88 years old and like to know who I am dealing with.
    Response from John
    Hi Ann, I apologize for not walking out of my office and saying hello while you were here. I was on back to back long phone calls and was unaware that you wanted to meet me. Ann is fully licensed an has many years of experience as is the rest of my staff and therefore fully capable to take care of my clientele. Having said that, please let me know of a time you can meet as I would like to welcome you to our agency.
    Again, I am sorry I wasn't able to greet you last week..
    Thanks, John

    I really appreciated the time spent with me to explore options of my multi auto and home policies. Yana worked with me to ensure the polices covered my needs and were realistic with my annual mileage. Yana researched my specific questions, quickly provided quotes, and was professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to communicate with. Thank you John and Yana for your help!

    From the moment I walked in the door, I felt welcomed into the “family”! I am so glad I chose them...professional, efficient, AND warm...a wonderful combination. I will be coming back soon with more of my insurance needs.
