“There is no better compliment than having a customer recommend my agency to a friend or member of their extended family,” says Peter. “Many of our clients have been with us since we opened our doors. I try to help folks get the right products for what they need and I’ve got a great staff to help provide good customer service.”

You need to be properly insured with the correct coverage. If your agent is not taking the time to sit down and talk with you,” says Peter, “and in the case of a homeowner’s policy, properly measuring your home and calculating the accurate replacement value, come see me. You deserve service. You deserve a good agent.”
