    I had been with another company for many years and had begun shopping around. Mr. Bates spent a great deal of time simply explaining and educating me on the current issues and concerns with auto and home owners insurance. He thoroughly reviewed my needs and match a policy to them. I left there with a peace knowing I have coverage to keep me safe and protected.
