As a lifelong resident of Michigan, I am proud to represent the fine people of Holland and West Michigan as your local Farmers Insurance® agent. At the Benjamin Smith Agency, you can expect face-to-face service and review of all your options for auto, home, life, business insurance, and more.

With nearly a decade of experience in education, I am well versed in simply and clearly laying out what you need to know about your insurance.

We provide one-on-one reviews of your current coverage every 6-12 months to keep you fully informed of all of your options for today as well as the future.

Whether you're looking to sign up for a new policy or simply evaluate what you have already, we're here for all of your needs. Stop in today for a cup of coffee and a conversation about your insurance coverage!

We were honored today to receive a visit from Michigan gubernatorial candidate Jim Hines! Jim and I had a great discussion about the future of our state. We also talked about PIP and No-Fault auto insurance reform. Thank you to Jim for taking the time to listen to the issues important to us, and share your experiences. Best of luck in the primaries, Jim!

    I reached out to Farmers Insurance for homeowners insurance. I spoke with Mark and Kara in the process. Both were very professional and very helpful. I'm new to Farmers Insurance and this agency. Thus far, I'm impressed. Thanks for all of your help, Mark and Kara.

    Ben was great. We wanted to make sure we were getting the same coverage as we had before, not a cheaper price because of less coverage. He answered all our questions and he got back to us right away to answer other questions that came up. Ben sent us all his quotes and followed up with us but there was never a hard pressure sell which we appreciated. We switched our condo, cars and trailer in October. So far so good.

    We looked online for local insurance providers, as we were displease with our existing insurance company, and Ben Smith Farmers Insurance had excellent reviews so we decided to stop in and discuss our needs with Ben. We met with Britt at first and then Ben, both of them took time to talk with us as well as discuss options, costs, etc. We were very happy with both Britt and Ben and decided after close to 30 years with our old providers to change to Ben Smith Farmers Insurance.
