J.J., 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.

F.K., 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.

T.P., 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.
