Reviews From Happy Insurance Customers

Here is what our customers are saying:


I have been a 20+ year client of Dave Martin. Dave has helped our family with our auto, homeowners, flood, and recreational vehicle policies. We trust Dave to always give us great advice. He goes above and beyond whether we are purchasing new policies or when the unexpected happens and claims are filed. I highly recommend Dave for ALL of your insurance needs!

Wow! Dave Martin just emailed me and asked to come over and show me a few things on my homeowners/flood/hazard policies from another company that were concerning him. He educated me on what I was being charged for and showed me how to lower my costs with another insurance company! Needless to say, with this type of outstanding customer service and attention to detail, I am planning to switch all of our policies, home and auto, to this dedicated [insurance] agent. I am confident with Dave Martin to watch over my policies, I truly am in good hands as the slogan goes.
