"Darryl Bandy and his team are top notch. Professional, caring and most of all makes us feel like family. It is refreshing to be affiliated with such great customer service. Beverly and Stacey are super knowledgeable and are willing to go above and beyond to ensure we have what we need. The best part of this team is they are not pushy or intrusive. They make sure we are aware of new offerings by State Farm and that we have everything adequately covered. We unequivocally recommend their services and we will be doing business with them for a long time to come!! Kudos to a great team!!!"

"I walked into State Farm Insurance office in Advance, NC (Bandy Insurance agency ) about 6 months ago. I was looking for new insurance company, because the one I had was doing me wrong. By my wife and I and thinking it was no big deal. After talking to Beverly at State Farm, I was very pleased and felt comfortable. That's important to me. To be able to talk with a person and not feel pressured into anything. She was able to not only help me, but give me more insurance for a lower price for home and auto, I liked that. Later on I met with Darryl and he too was just as comfortable to talk to. For 15 years in NC I was paying other insurance company and never felt as welcome as I did at State Farm in Advance, NC. I know this is a long review, but when you work with professionals that handle all the fine print, I want to know things are right and when I ask questions it's not taking up somebodies time that you are paying to work and help you. Thank you State Farm of Advance, NC"

"We were customers when we lived in Advance, then we moved to Ohio, but our daughter stayed in North Carolina. The Bandy team was always super helpful as we navigated the ins and outs of the different insurance requirements for the each state until our daughter bought her own policy. Always very helpful and very thorough."

"Darryl and his team SET the standard by which all other competitive activity is judged. The professionalism that he and his team demonstrate is outstanding. Their attention to detail and follow-up set them apart from my previous insurance providers. You can have confidence that they will work to understand your needs and present you with insurance solutions tailored to those needs. I can recommend the Bandy Agency without reservation."

"We have had Darryl Bandy agency for our time here in North Carolina, about 6 years total. We find them totally available, responsive in a positive way, Willing to review policies to better suit our needs and save money, as an advocate during claims processes, willing to come to the house and evaluate how to insure additional building projects, pleasant on the phone and in person, knowledgable and helpful staff and a joy to be with."

"*SCAM ALERT* I was a new State Farm customer. I was quoted a reasonable premium after suppling them with my driving history. About 1 1/2 months later after signing my contract I was given notice that my premium had tripled although my driving history remained the same. Now in order to find honest and trustworthy insurers I have to break contract which requires paying 10% of the ridiculous monthly premiums over the length of the remaining contract. I spoke to Mr. Bandy personally and he agreed that this is the current situation but he will be unable to make it right. At best I would say that this State Farm Branch is highly incompetent. At worst they are running a scam and trying to rob you of your hard earned money. Worst service and experience I’ve received in my entire life, insurance or otherwise. Save yourself the money and headache."

"I have been dealing with Kati for almost a year now and have had nothing but 100% positive experiences! She is always willing to help and answer questions, and she does it quickly. I only dealt with Darryl once and that too was 100%. Great company with great people!"

"I just completed my policy review for my home and auto policy. I have been with Darryl and State Farm for a year now. Darryl invited me to conduct the review via mail. I replied via email to accept the invite. All communications were timely and friendly. I met Darryl at his office. He was well prepared. We discussed my concerns with no pressure alternatives to better my coverage. The process was very easy, he and his staff (especially Stacey) were polite, professional and responsive. I would recommend Darryl Bandy State Farm Insurance to anyone that wants a responsive customer service oriented relationship."

"**4/22/22 Review update** I have now been with Bandy Agency a year. In addition to Auto & Renter's policies, I have since obtained Life Policies as well. I could not be happier with my insurance, in general. Every representative I have worked with has been courteous and extremely helpful, always willing to answer questions and give guidance. Current kudos goes out to Kati Shoaf for helping us get our Homeowners & Umbrella policies ready to go for settlement!!! Still looking forward to many years with this wonderful agency! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have been with State Farm, in general for years, as I like the company and have had great experiences with their agents. In my move to North Carolina, I hastily obtained a different insurance company and regretted it pretty quickly, I could not get in touch with my agent. I was referred to Bandy Agency and received prompt help from Reagan and it has been a wonderful experience. Very personable and knowledgeable and I received responses to my email contact and phone calls. I saved money and got an agent with whom I look forward to having a long working relationship!"

"I just recently started a insurance policy with the Darryl Brandy State Farm agency and have Evan as my agent & he is great! If there are any issues he is very prompt at looking into them and getting back w/ you. I recently was able to physically go in the office and Evan explained my policy to me in depth and everything that I appreciated that customer service. Highly recommend Evan for all your car insurance needs."
