American Family Insurance - Jared Walthard Agency
Jared has been a tremendous asset to my Real Estate business. From day one, Jared has been my go to for all things insurance, he had written my first policy for my first rental property, and I now have somewhere around 15-20 policies with him covering my properties as well as my Property Management company. He is always ready to go the extra mile, and explained in great detail the ins and outs of the insurance world to keep me fully informed to make the best decisions. When a claim arose, Jared helped me through it and I was very satisfied with the outcome. He is professional and a true expert in his feild.

Farmers Insurance - Nick Antonov
I have been with Antonov Insurance Agency since 2007 for my business needs, and I have nothing but good things to say. I am a general contractor and requests for certificates and other documents are always taken care of within 1-2 days. Their insurance coverage and pricing is very competitive . I can always contact my agent via phone or email and get a reply within the hour or that same day. Over the past five years I have built a good relationship with this company and would recommend their service.

We have been insured with Jared for over 3 years now, home insurance, auto, and business. He is easily available to answer all my questions and has always provided me with the most competitive comprehensive coverage i have found. I shop him every year and keep coming back for the best deal and excellent service!

Sandra Campbell - State Farm Insurance Agent
The State Farm staff is great, but I didn't like how dismissive Sandra was when I had questions about an auto quote. I felt judged about the car that I drove and she tried to sell me other things without knowing my complete situation. Very disappointing.

Tips & Advices
Insurance agents will often try to "upsell" on various extra products that may be useful for certain people, but are generally excessive for the average consumer. Stick with basic plans that cover as much as you need without any additional costs. For example, if the annual cost of your auto insurance is 10 percent or more of the total value of your car, drop all but the most essential coverage. This is especially applicable if the car you drive is older and could be replaced with savings. Otherwise, you are paying for insurance that will never actually benefit you in the event of a serious crash.
Yes. Even after you've chosen a plan and started paying into it, consider looking around again when it comes time to renew the policy. Consider using an independent agent when searching for a new insurance policy. While traditional agents can still find a good deal, independent agents can choose from a variety of providers and tailor your coverage to your specific needs. The Internet has also made comparison shopping easy. Potential customers can often get free quotes online very quickly.
Send your insurer a claim form for each beneficiary in the plan, as well as a certified copy of the policyholder's death certificate. With the proper information, life insurance claims are generally straightforward. Problems may arise if the policyholder has died within two years of opening the policy. In this case, an attorney may be needed to settle the claim.
In the case of damage, take pictures of the affected area as soon as any safety or health emergencies are resolved. Take note of what happened and all the relevant circumstances and report to your insurer as soon as possible. If any of your possessions were damaged, use an inventory of your important assets and make note of this in the claim. Once an adjuster has made their own report, review it for accuracy.
If you're involved in an accident, you need to call the police right away and have them document the situation. You can file a claim upon obtaining the police report. It's also a good idea, if possible, to take your own notes to record: what happened before the accident, the date and time, traffic signs in the area and road conditions. Also get the other driver's name, address, license plate number, and insurance information. Even photos taken with a cell phone camera can help the claims process. Once you have this documentation, call your insurance company right away.
