Here's what Luke's clients say!

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.

J.U., 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!
