    Chris was great to work with, gave a fast quote emailed with details and didn't hound us to switch over. Super flexible in communication times and explained the details of coverage to a tee. Highly recommend!

    My concerns were all met. I am very happy how quickly my old policy was reviewed and then rewritten to safe me money. I am retired and was shocked of how my policy jumped in price in one year. Thanks again.

    My contact with the Confer Farmers insurance agency was a professional and rewarding experience. The agent was very helpful in explaining any questions that I had. He also helped me customize my policies to get the lowest rates. I would highly recommend Confer Farmers Insurance Agency.

    I first was looking for business insurance. Out of all the companies I contacted, This agency did the best job of listening to me and following up. They provided me what I wanted at the best price. Then I wanted a quote on home and auto, They again delivered exceptionally well. I got the same coverage on my auto for much less a year and I got better home insurance for less. WOW.. what a great agency. I am very pleased with their great service!!

    I had Jim Confer as my agent before, left for 3 years because I felt I couldn't afford the rising premiums, but I am back. Why? Because the service I got elsewhere was inferior compared to Jim and Farmers, especially Jim. He is a fine man and a fine agent, completely dedicated to serving the best interests of his client, It is good to be back in his hands.
