Customer Reviews

April 27, 2023

Great customer service from the whole team! I ended up switching my car insurance over with them and have better coverage than before plus my premium was less than my other agent who kept me with the same carrier for seven years. Lastly, the process was so easy and they were able to explain my policy in a way that I feel I actually understand what my coverage is and why they recommended the enhanced coverage.

September 28, 2020

Knowledgeable staff who has provided excellent customer service any time I have needed it. I highly recommend them.

September 28, 2020

I have Dowd for both my homeowners and auto insurance and they have exceeded my expectations each time I was in need of a policy review or change in my vehicle. Very helpful and prompt!

September 28, 2020

New customer here but I couldn't be happier! Nick was super friendly, accessible, and knowledgeable. He saved me a bunch of money and had everything ready for me each time I visited the office. Such an easy process! I am going to encourage my friends and family to make the switch too. It's a shame to think so many people aren't getting this type of service!

A customer has no better worker than a Dowd Employee!
