why choose us
You have the choice of numerous professional, knowledgeable, and competent insurance agencies committed to serving their clients. We feel we’re one of them.
In lieu of listing all the reasons we think you should choose us, we thought it would be a better idea to ask our existing clients why they chose and decided to stay with our agency. Below is a sampling of our clients’ answers:
The following unsolicited letter from the owner of Apple Pie Daycares summarized for us why we believe most of our clients choose The Blake Agency, Inc.
This week I was reviewing the 2009 financials for my 6 companies; 4 child care centers and 2 commercial real estate properties. As you know, last year was a challenging year for the business community. In every major expense category I had increased expenses except for my insurance. Across the board in all 6 companies you reduced or maintained my insurance expenses compared to the 2008 level. This includes liability, workers compensation, fire and auto. I know that meant work for you because we switched a few insurance companies at renewal because you found the same coverage at a less expensive rate. By the way, there were no decreases in expenses in any other category of my expenses.
Khaj, when I started working with you 7 years ago you sold me on the format of relationship and service. In the back of my mind I was thinking cost. My financial review this week proves I got all three. Your service has been excellent! When I call your office someone is always willing to help or handle the situation even if you are unavailable. Rose is a real gem! And I certainly enjoy the working relationship you and I have. It reminds me of years past when an agent really cared about his or her customers.
I felt compelled to write this letter after my financial review this week. I appreciate all you do for me and my businesses. You’re more like a friend than a vendor. Thank you.

“I can’t begin to thank you for all that you’ve done for us over the years. I think of the day in the Miami airport when I called you to ask if we needed to take insurance on our rental car. At that time I didn’t even have my personal insurance with you. But you not only answered my call but gave me what I needed. Your service has been excellent, returning calls, explaining complicated insurance terms in layman’s terms, your willingness to research answers and comparing various insurance policies for the best pricing and recommending things (coverage’s) we needed and of course for being a Penn Stater.”

The most personal 'testimonial' we have received was a few years ago from the owner of a wholesale/retail furniture store who was a client since 2005 and was terminally ill who called a few days prior to his passing to ask if he owed our agency any money. ...we’re still absolutely speechless.
