Understanding What Matters

Understanding What Matters
Before becoming the Farmers agent local to Edison and Metuchen, I was tasked to accomplish a rigorous training program at the University of Farmers to ensure that I am qualified to provide you information on our insurance products. I put my decades of professional experience to work for my customers, helping you make sure the coverage is suited to your needs. You get the advantages of one-on-one insight from an agent who grew up in this community. I'm here to give you my time, so as to match you with the tailored level of protection with competitive pricing.

Farmers Friendly Review Service

Farmers® agents provide this service in person or online to help you review your existing coverage, so you can decide how to keep up with your changing insurance needs. 

As your life changes, maybe your policy should too 

Changes in your life can add up to changes in insurance needs. A change in marital status, the birth of a child or the purchase of a new home are just a few examples of life events that may create overlaps or gaps in your coverage. 

Review your coverage and possibly save money 

Just as you continue to change and grow,  Farmers® has been growing for over 85 years. A Farmers® customer can be the first to enjoy access to new benefits (like when we became the first insurance group to offer a discount for alternative-fuel vehicles).  Talk to us about a Farmers Friendly Review® - we can provide you with insurance options and discuss any available discounts for which you may qualify so you can select the coverage that best fits your needs.   

How often should you have a Farmers Friendly Review® session?

We recommend a Farmers Friendly Review® at least once a year or whenever you have a qualifying life event change. If you like, I can even set a reminder for us to keep an annual appointment to discuss your changing coverage needs. 

Give us a call to set up your Farmers Friendly Review®. 

The Future of Your Small Business
As a small business owner myself, I know it’s not easy to plan for the future when you factor in the unexpected. A Buy-Sell Agreement funded by a life insurance policy can help reduce the “what ifs” in your mind. Let’s work together on a plan sooner rather than later.
