D.P., Customer
Our forms were ready, they were expecting us and when we gave our name they seemed as if they had known us for a very long time. The transaction was quick and well explained. The staff was very professional yet very friendly. Thank you so much!
J. M., Customer
You made it easy by coming to my home to discuss options for a Medicare Supplement, explained the choices and providers clearly so I could make the best choice for my needs, went above and beyond to help me select the best drug plan for my needs, provided phone numbers and web sites so I could finalize my choices, and followed up afterwards to make sure there were no problems. And when I thanked Laura Pecina for her efforts, she said she was just doing her job. I greatly appreciate both Laura Pecina and Sams/Hockaday, and will be proud to recommend them to others.
