I dealt with Suzy at Porter-Hay Insurance and she just knocked it out of the park! I have somewhat of a difficult situation with my insurance and was in a time crunch to find a new policy. She took all of my information and found another policy for me and I even saved a little per month. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and responded quickly. She is absolutely wonderful to work with! Thumbs way up!
I have had the most pleasant experience having Porter-Hay as my insurance agents. They are very helpful and have helped with everything I have needed. They were the most cost effective I could find in my research! Keep up the good work!!
Thank you so much for all of your help. You made the dread of getting my own insurance go away and also made the process such a breeze!
Changing insurance companies can be a big deal in life, but with the caring and compassion Jackie brings to the table, the process was quick and easy. She took the time to explain everything to us, letting us know she is just one call away to take care of our problems. Porter- Hay is a great place to always lend a helping hand.
Amy was very helpful and knowledgeable with all of our insurance needs. She’s very professional but very personable and caring.
Jackie is always fun to deal with. She gets things done and does it right. I know I can trust her to get me a good company and decent rates.
Amy is extremely knowledgable about insurance. She works hard to keep our premium low while making sure we have the coverage that we need. She always takes the time to explain things and gives us all of our options. She routinely reviews our insurance and notifies me if she thinks we need to make a change. She makes insurance easy!
I want to send a very sincere thank you to Susan at the Andalusia branch. You rock Susan. Thanks for all your help today.
Amy is amazing. I was with my other insurance company since i was 20. Amy made it so simple and pain free to switch and get a better insurance. She explained everything and showed me the difference that she could provide with my home and auto insurance. I will recommend her to anyone looking or not looking for insurance. She just has this AWWWW about her!
