"My husband has had State Farm for over 25 years, I have had them for several years and we both agree we never want to look elsewhere. The group at Chili is amazing and has always been so professional but also warming/caring like family. If I have a question about car insurance, house insurance, or even insurance for my valuables- I get quick responses to emails and/or phone calls. They are just absolutely amazing! Tara is on top of everything. She noticed a discount that wasn't added and made sure we got it. She and the rest of the team is truly AMAZING! We love them!"

"I met my State Farm agent, Tom Kernan, as the coach of the 'other' hockey team that oftentimes shared the ice with my son's same-age team. After watching his exceedingly more well-planned practices and the contagious laughter emanating from his part of the ice, I found myself wanting to watch the magic he brewed with his players and coaches that made theirs a sought-after experience. It came down to the precise mix of knowledge, the right perspective and a good dose of wholesome humor. I found myself fortunate when the two teams merged with Tom earning the headcoach of the newly formed superteam. Soon after, I learned of his involvement in the insurance industry and he graciously answered my questions without ever selling me on the merits of State Farm. His industry and practical knowledge drawn from years of experience was palpable. His demeanor beyond reproach. In time, I asked for a quote and found my current provider was a bit more competitively priced. That didn't stop his thoughtful answers to my questions whenever a need arose. After some time, I started to think why I kept going to Tom for my questions, what did he provide that my own agent didn't? The answer came in looking back at the person who coached my son's hockey team those years back. Tom's knowledge was formidable, but if he wasn't quite certain of a topic he quickly got back to me with rock solid info. He was accountable. He had the right perspective. His entrepreneurial spirit grounded his approach that his customers are the life blood of his business and he knew it was a privilege to serve them. And finally, his demeanor is always welcoming with a solid dose of good natured humor thrown in, no charge. His should be a patent-able customer service artform. So, when my insurance needs peaked around a year ago, I asked for another State Farm quote. It was competitive. I realized that the agent you choose is an important component of the overall deal, and that put Tom's quote well ahead. I haven't looked back and am quite pleased with State Farm and Tom Kernan. I know that they're 'on my side.'"

"The State Farm Kernan Agency has been my insurance company for over 20 years! It was always a very simple process whenever we added a new car at various times throughout these years for one of our 5 driving household members. And, the occasional accidents were always handled very smoothly and professionally. I've been very pleased with the prices and services at the Kernan Agency!"

"5 stars is an understatement when it comes to this agency! This is an excellent, family oriented agency with excellent support for all customers. I am so relieved and excited to be apart of this branch. The support system they have in place for any and all questions you can have is second to no one and that is an extremely refreshing fact when it comes to an insurance company. Tom, Theresa and the rest of the family that picks up the phone/answers an email at the agency deserve all the credit in the world for being a reachable and understand group in a business where trust is worth so much. I am beyond refreshed to have switched to this company. Thank you from my family to yours!"

"Tom and his staff are incredibly helpful, professional and caring. They instantly put me at ease when I have any questions or issues. State Farm's rates are the best. They never push me to purchase more than I need to cover my vehicles and my home. I have been with them for over 40 years and I recommended them often to friends and family."

"We have been clients of Tom and his great State Farm staff for years. They are very attentive and knowledgeable regarding the home and auto insurance needs for my family. I don't even have to call them, they call me to discuss any changes or clarifications regarding our policies. It doesn't matter who I speak with, Tom, Diana, Dawn or Tara. Tom even provided his cell number if I ever need to contact him outside business hours."

"I was reached out to by Diane Fiorito about a request I made for a quote online. From the second I started talking to her on the phone she was beyond helpful. She brought an experience to the table that you cannot put a value on. Diane found out that there were some false accident records on the driving record of my fiancé and that was what was causing our insurance rates to go up. Diane helped point us to who we needed to talk to to get those sorted out and because we were on a sort time frame to not have a lapse in insurance, Diane was able to get the false accidents to not be a part of our quoted price. There was also another hiccup due to how I signed one of the forms and Diane was very responsive and proactive to getting it fixed. Diane gave us several options on how to fix it. Long story short, if you need insurance and want someone to actually care about getting you a good deal, reach out to this branch of State Farm and ask for Diane Fiorito. Also, if Diane's supervisor is reading this, she deserves a raise!"

"We've been with Tom and the Kernan Agency for over 8 years now. Tom and his team are honest, professional and extremely responsive. Tom currently handle our fleet of 10 delivery trucks as well as all of my personal insurances. Having been in the service industry for over 20 years now I don't give referrals to family & friends for just any vendor. I have recommended the Kernan Agency to many of my family as well as many friends. I have 100% confidence that Tom and his team will treat them as they've treated me and my company for all these years...with nothing less than 100% focus on customer satisfaction! Tom, Theresa and the entire staff at the Kernan Agency, thank you for all the years of dedicated customer service with a personal touch! You guys are truly a valued partner. Thank you"
