    Jim was very cordial and pleasant to work with as an agent. He was very attentive to our needs and made sure we understood everything on our policies. Always asked if we had any questions or concerns. Jim is by far a terrific person to have representing us with our insurance needs. Heidi his secretary is super also and very helpful and polite. They noticed an overpayment on my part immediately and addressed it without wasting any time. Thank you Jim and Heidi and Farmers Insurance. Thank
