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.

Luke has always been willing to go above and beyond to help solve any issues I have had to receive reimbursements from the insurance companies. He has a very positive attitude and is very knowledgeable about the insurance industry. I truly believe I would have made better financial decisions earlier if I had someone like Luke to guide my insurance needs.

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.

As the process began, I had a few questions and called Luke for clarification. Luke is very accessible and if he is not available when I call, he has always returned my calls in a timely manner. I will be happy to recommend Luke Hockaday to anyone who nneds to shop for insurance policy coverage.

C.W., Customer
Very customer focused and easy to talk to.
M.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.
