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.

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.

Customer service--trust and making us feel so comfortable which is why we have invested our money with Sams/Hockaday.
M.A., 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 follow-up and above and beyond service!
K.W., Customer
Thanks for all your help with my accounts!
S.F., Customer

I would highly recommend Sam/Hockaday ass.
