A friend recommended BGS Insurance Agency to me several years ago, and my experience with them has been a very positive one. My agent, Todd Seymour, responds to my inquiries quickly and in a very comprehensive manner. With Todd's assistance, I feel empowered to make informed choices.

Todd is super easy to work with, and this makes the whole 'uh oh we need insurance' conversation so much better. Thanks Todd.
