December 3, 2019

Ive always preferred an agency for my insurance needs in the event I would want to speak with someone in person. Byrnes has been accommodating with everything Ive brought to the table. I highly recommend them.

October 4, 2019

Byrnes helped me through insuring my first home purchase and patiently worked with me to establish combined home and auto, saving me a ton of money on auto insurance in the process. Alexcia was fast to respond and very polite in fielding my many questions! I absolutely recommend them.

Used them for years, great service and I like to have numerous underwriters to pick from. I much prefer an independent agent.

I am with Byrnes Agency since 1999. They are nice people, especially my agent Mark. He always listens to me and found a good rate for my 4 cars, 2 houses and 1 motorcycle.

June 23, 2019

Recently had a home fire. Already a stressful situation, they reassured me that everything would be ok. They spent a lot of time answering my questions and there were plenty. We are not finished with the repairs yet but I am quite sure they will be satisfactory. Thank you at Byrnes Agency. They are polite, friendly & helpful.
