"Derek and his team have done a great job covering our home, autos, and more for over seven years. They are always available via phone, email, or in person. They were there when we needed them during a bad storm a few years ago and they still check in on us. Great coverage and great support!"

"Vanessa Christiansen has been so helpful in updating my State Farm car insurance for a new vehicle. She was quick to respond, reviewed the coverage details completely to be certain all details were as I desired, and this was over the phone with verifications by email. So Quick and So Easy! Thank you, Vanessa!"

"I've always received great service from the Derek Spears agency whether it was dealing with Derek himself or one of his office staff. When my apt mgrs told me out of the blue that I needed a new endorsement added to my rental ins policy that wasn't required previously, I emailed Derek's office that same day and Vanessa promptly handled the request by calling my apt mgr's office directly letting them know the endorsement was being added to my policy that day and she would be sending them a copy just as soon as her system processed it onto my policy. She also emailed me a copy of it for more own records. This is just on example of the great service I've always received from them and definitely recommend them for your insurance needs. They've had both my car and renters ins for over 10yrs now with no complaints!"

"I recently moved and needed to find renter’s insurance (apt requirement). I stopped in Derek Spear’s agency and he sat down explained what coverages I should have. I found out I needed a Personal Articles Policy for my engagement ring! He was so helpful! Thanks Derek for being patient and explaining insurance to me who isn’t too savvy on this subject! Check out this agency they will take care of you!"

"After having derek spears for insurance for over a year i could say im better off. After calling several times in the span of 2 weeks to get my address changed and add a roomate and rental property to my policy they messed it up several time after which mind you (derek himself sent me a proof of insurance, but called a week later my address wasnt even changed). I never had any claims or anything the only help i ever needed was this and caused so much lost time and sometimes they couldnt even awnser about my new rate ect. Whats the point in having a agent if they can't even help you. They failed miserably at the one thing i ever needed them for. So sorry but screw you guys, you literally had one job."
