    I am from a small ND farm town where we all trusted each other. I was looking online for someone to give me a quote for home-owner's insurance for my very first home purchase. To be honest, I called Rob becuase I thought he looked like a good and honest guy in his picture. He made me feel very comfortable on the phone, and when I went to meet him in person, it was like talking with an old friend. I am glad that if I need to make a claim, he will be availalble to me.

Rob got in touch with me so quickly and even came to my location to pick up the necessary info and paperwork. He was back in touch the same afternoon with numbers and was able to save me a lot of money!! He was very thorough and professional and really looked at my current coverage to ensure that he was comparing apples to apples. I felt like he really cared about me and my needs!!
