The Sanford Group

Independent Insurance Agent in Ball Ground, GA

About us

Auto - Home - Business - Life

Thank you for the opportunity to earn your business! We're a Marine veteran owned business with four agents who have a combined 100+ years experience.

If you're tired of renewal rate hikes and being told by your agent that there's nothing that can be done because all companies are increasing rates, we'd love to talk with you. Maybe the problem is that your agent only represents one insurance company - or doesn't represent enough top rated companies.

We'll review your policies and then shop your coverage with at least a dozen highly rated companies to find your most cost effective solution. Then we'll review and re-quote your business at renewal every year, suggest changes to improve your coverage and/or rates, and handle the switch process to one of our other carriers if you decide a change makes sense for you.

Always quick in responding and always looking for great companies with best rates.

I appreciate you taking the time to explain to me items I do not understand in order for me to make decisions for my best interest. You and your staff are reliable, and it is a blessing to know I can depend on you for the help I need, since I am a widow, and my husband always took care of our insurance needed. Thank you, Myra Garner

Quick response to requests for information. I am also pleased that from time to time you compare my current coverage and rates with other available plans to insure that I get the coverage I need at the best available rates..

Wonderful customer service. Anticipated our apprehension as annual rates were rising, and did rate comparisons with 10 different companies without our even requesting this. Very personal and quick to respond- highly recommend Sanford Group.

Very helpful finding me a policy for my home and auto. The Sanford Group (Louise Mashburn) worked hard to keep me informed and was patient to explain the detail of options. I was able to save money as a result of the process.
