What People Say

What did you do right? You provided me with forty years of excellent service. Have always felt secure that I have ample coverage at the best market price. Your reviewing of my account over the years has saved me money, but more than money it has brought me peace of mind. Insurance is to complicated to navigate on your own you need to have someone in your corner. That someone is called an agent! Please don’t change a thing.

Anne Foss

We own several older rental properties located on one parcel of land. The properties represent often complex issues in insurance because of zoning, age, type of property and such. We’ve been clients of The Bakker Agency for many, many years. Never has there been an issue around their ability to manage these complex issues well, professionally, efficiently, cost-effectively, and in a timely fashion. We’ve never had a complaint about premium costs, the types of coverage or the way in which claims have been handled. We’re delighted with the service we’ve received, and are happy to unreservedly recommend The Bakker Agency.
