    We are very happy with Ben's help. We signed up for homeowners and auto policies on the spot, and after the meeting we cancelled a scheduled appointment with an agent for another company. Overall, everything went smoothly. And we now have a local agent we can talk to if a problem ever comes up.

    Ben was very proactive in helping me review and analyze my insurance needs. We decide to move both auto and home insurance and add umbrella too for less than our current instance plans. Logan made it all happen in the end. Thank you.

    I wish Ben could also take care of my California insurance needs, it would really be nice to have one agent (like Ben) to cover all Farmer's insurance products regardless of location.

    Ben & Logan handled my initial inquiry and subsequent policy issuance professionally, were responsive to my questions and moved me through completion of the policy documentation and payment expeditiously.
    Response from Ben

    My insurance does not begin for 3 weeks however my anxiety for changing insurers for both my home and vehicles was based on cost, coverage and the communication in changing the home coverage with my mortgage company while finding a insurer with a local contact and knowledge of the community that I live in. Logan did a very professional job in presenting all options and Ben seems to care very much in his company and customers. Thanks and I look forward to having you as my insurer. JB

    Nora was able to write us a policy even tho I called after 4 PM on a Friday. She was a great help, & as I told her, neither of the other 2 Farmers agents in Durango answered their phones!
