What Our Customers Say!
Several months ago we had a flood in our home due to a defective valve in our guest bathroom. Needless to say we came home to a disaster. We immediately contacted our agent, Linda Welborn. Right on the spot she gave us the name and phone number of a company to call (Disaster One). They came out that evening (around 11:30pm) and worked through the following morning around 6:30am. They did an outstanding job! We were so impressed with their "sense of urgency" and "expertise" we assigned all of our repairs to their company. The insurance adjuster(Erie Insurance) cut no corners when it came to replacing damaged items. They issued repair orders on things we weren't even aware we needed to look for. They too did a great job in getting everything processed quickly. It's great to have such a Professional agent who treats us like we are her only customer. I have been so impressed with her outstanding customer service that I refer many people to your agency because of the great care and attention she gives to her customers. Thank you Linda for your outstanding service! We look forward to working with you in the years to come.
