Sharon B., customer since 2014
Janet, your service and you are both personal and personable! Thank you for taking time to meet with us at our house.
M.J., Customer
We kept communicating on an awkward agreement with Caterpillar and Oneexchange group. It was uncharted territory that required customers and agents to fight bureaucracy and federal restrictions for release of information. The System is definitely broken but my agent stayed with it until we achieved our goal
A.D., Customer
Made it very easy to understand and select the appropriate plan
D.E., Customer
Janet is a caring agent, and understands what I need. I have recommended Sams Hockaday to members of a Seniors Group at First Christian Church.
C.C., Customer
You have the ability to compare rates, etc. with a number of companies. It would take us days to do similar comparisons.
R.C., Customer

M.B., Customer
Good customer service. Friendly and knowledgeable.
E.R., Customer
I always felt the agent was trying very hard to be aware of what worked best for me. never felt I was just a generic customer.
P.J., Customer
Janet is great. She helped us get a great deal on medical insurance for my husband. She has gotten back with me to see if I needed to change my policy and see if we were still happy with our policies.
Lolita C., customer since 2014

M.L., Customer
My appointments with Janet Johnson were very affective for my health insurance and for my husband's too. I appreciate her good familiarity with us and improving our coverage.
D.H., Customer
when I have question it always answered in a way I can understand and if there are any problems you all go the extra mile and make the call for me and get back with me instead of me trying to answer the questions I don't have answers for so thanks a lot
A. M., Customer
I felt that your representatives were well informed and would be willing to go to bat for me if I ever had an issue with the insurance agency in the future. Both representatives I spoke with were personable and seemed eager to help me find what options were right for me. Janet has many years of experience in this field and has been a teacher in the past as I have been. Both representatives were willing to come to my home to do business. I hope that will continue as I get older since mobility has become a major issue with my elderly mother and I can see how difficult that makes it for her to do business she needs to conduct.
Customer since 2015
I have always been greeted at the front desk with a smile, and It is the personal touch that Janet offers to her clients. It's like coming to visit a friend... and oh, also, discussing my insurance needs. Janet is so friendly, I never feel rushed out, how could anyone go anywhere else? My insurance needs are well handled. I never have to worry about my rates, coverage or claim forms. When I have concerns I can call Janet and she will fix it. It's great peace of mind. I have recommended Sams/Hockaday many times and will continue to do so. Thank you for a great service.
Cora C., customer since 2013
You found the best deals. You answered questions even when it required a great deal of research,
A.D., Customer
You are always very helpful when we need you
Harrell E., customer since 2013
Friendly fast service. Answered questions open aboyt pros and cons of various services
R.E., Customer
Janet Johnson seems to me to be very service oriented. If my call goes to voice mail, she is prompt about calling back. She seems to be genuinely interested in getting the best deal for me and has repeatedly assured me that if I have issues with billing from the insurance company she will make sure the situation is set right. That is important service to me. She comes to my home to talk to me about my options and to get me signed up for the best option for me. That will become more important to me should I develop mobility/transportation restrictions as I age. She is prompt in coming when she says she will be here. She seems to me to be knowledgeable about Medicare and how it works/what is and is not covered and how I can be sure I don't fall into pitfalls. That, too, is really important
B.M., Customer
Service was excellent, precise and to the point.
Diane H., customer since 2015
It was nice to be able to find that someone, we actually know and trust, could be of help to us when we found ourselves in a position of needing to find health insurance.
