Outstanding Customer Service
"I use the Slocum Lauder Agency for my two restaurants and a variety of different, required insurances. It can be complicated and sometimes confusing, but the service I get from my agents, David Eaton and Darcy Dewar Lynch, is outstanding and it takes all the stress out of the process. They’re always available to answer questions and help me with anything I need. It’s personal service, and I never have to worry about running into something I don’t understand or I’m surprised by. They’re a phone call away and they always ready to jump in and take care of whatever I need. I couldn’t be more satisfied."

DAVE EATON has been my agent...
"Dave Eaton has been my agent for insurance for about the last 30 years. He has been an asset to me in several ways, first as an advisor. I can call him any time of the day with questions and if he doesn't know the answer he gets it, no bull, no putting off, and no passing the buck, he gets it done. Second, Dave treats me as family, and that goes a long way with me, I don't care for big corporate phony friendships. I have recommended Dave to my friends, family, and associates with out fear of them being taken advantage of."
