Cathy Barnes was absolutely wonderful. We thought we had a good deal on our auto insurance with another company. Cathy was able to get us an even better deal. She was amazing! Thank you!!

I have dealt with Sausman Insurance for about 50 years and this time was no different. When you call to set up an appointment, you are greeted in a warm, friendly manner. When you arrive for your appointment, you are made to feel like you are a valued person to Sausman’s, not just a customer. When you meet with an agent, they work to find you the right policy to cover your needs. The policy is explained in full and all your questions are answered. If there is a follow up needed, it is done
