NOTE: If Luke is your agent and you can't find a time on Luke's calendar, please do NOT choose a different agent to meet with, as this will complicate and slow down your enrollment.

Please call our office if you run into scheduling issues.

Here's what Luke's clients say!

To begin with you had a seminar explaining my options for healthcare. Then after I enrolled in one of your options you have continued to follow up with what you can do to make it better.
Customer since 2014
Have always provided any answers or help that I needed.

Luke is always concerned about you and your well being, not just about selling you a product but helping to meet your needs.
D.O., Customer
You made me feel like an important person, and took your time when explaining the options I have in picking my secondary insurance. I felt like I wasn't being rushed either. Thank you for helping me find the right insurance company.

M.P., Customer
you always called me back. You looked for ways to save us money on my insurance.
G.B., Customer
I found Luke to be very personable and always more than willing to find the information that I requested of him. If he didn't know the answer at the time he would either find it himself or ask someone in the know. From our first meeting with Luke my wife and I felt extremely comfortable with him and the way he conducted himself. We feel like they offered a great product and we couldn't be more pleased at this time.

You come to a place in life that you need professional help with such things as life and health insurance. We have had Luke Hockaday as our Agent since he first started with Sams/Hockaday, and we really like the way he can call these many Insurance Companies and get quick results. He is very professional, yet he has a neat sense of humor that goes a long way. If you need the same help that we depend on, just call Luke @ 217-433-9214 and tell him Janet Jackson sent you!

Mona A., customer since 2014
Sams/Hockaday and staff are always very informative , friendly and professional.
L.G., Customer
I retired June 30, 2016 and Jim and I each needed a supplemental medical policy and a prescription plan. Luke walked us through this process. His recommendations were "perfect" for us....he set the supplemental policy and gave us step by step instructions on getting set up with the prescription plan. We ran into some "glitches" with the prescription plan and he returned our calls immediately. He never made us feel he was "too busy." We could not have been more pleased with the ease of this transition and Luke's professionalism.
S.W., Customer
Great service and attention. Very knowledgeable and had our best interest and future in mind.
M.P., Customer
You were very helpful and very nice. Explained everything well.
S. F., Customer
Luke made sure that we understood all of our options. He kept us informed throughout the process. Luke was very friendly and professional. A pleasure to work with.

I appreciate the fact that you are willing to come to my home and talk business, so I do not have to drive to an office.

C.W., Customer
I was just glad to hear about the John Hancock long term care/life Insurance policy they offer. My husband had complained for years trying to get me to invest in stocks, but I refused. Boy was he shocked when I immediately decided to sock some away in this policy. Now he has nothing more to complain about!
Customer since 2011
You always answer all my questions.

When I call my agent, Luke Hockaday, I always get a prompt response. There is no waiting a day or two to hear back. The office is always very helpful and courteous. In this day of poor customer service it is refreshing to have an agent and staff that care about my concerns.
D.C., Customer
Luke I very much appreciate your hands on approach in dealing with clients. It makes me feel that you have a real concern for those you serve. I look forward to the yearly visits for my medicare updates and renewals. I also feel confident that should some unforseen issue arise where I needed assistance I feel you would have a genuine concern in helping me getting it resolved. Also when my wife reaches 65 you will have another added customer.
L. P., Customer
We have been exceptionally pleased to work with Sams/Hockaday and with Luke Hockaday. Luke has always been professional but also very personable and you feel like he really cares! We've only had one little issue with a bill (which was not their fault) but we took it to the office and it was taken care of for us and they happily agreed to do so. We always recommend Luke and Hockaday Insurance to everyone we know.
Patricia B., customer since 2013
Luke always keeps my needs first and foremost, and I never feel like he's rushed. He takes as much time as needed. He's also friendly and fun.
