    John did an outstanding job guiding me through switching my home, auto and umbrella insurance to Farmers. It was quite a process as I am coming off a corporate policy and John put extra effort to get me through underwriting. Excellent service.
    I am a happy Farmers customer

    John Marino was great. Lets start with the fact that he answered the phone! When I called other agencies to get a policy quote for my home & autos, all I ever got was answering machines & no call backs. John answered the phone, answered all of my questions, & answered them within a reasonable time span if the answer wasn't immediately available to him. We discussed coverages and cost and we found products that we were extremely happy and comfortable with. Awesome! Thanks John!

    I recently requested a quote for renters insurance and worked with agent John Marino. I received prompt attention, answers to all of my questions and excellent customer service. I was happy with the price quoted and have gotten the policy. Paperwork was able to be completed online which made the process that much easier. I will be using this company for future insurance needs. Thank you! Diane
