We really appreciated when you went to bat for us after my blunder with a telemarketer. The insurance broker was pretty underhanded in the way they got us to unwittingly sign up for a policy with them. We thought the quote they sent us was just our new policy from you guys because of the way they worded things. Come to find out it wouldn't have been a huge loss for you guys to lose our contract but as a matter of principal you took the time to fight it out with those guys and we think that is outstanding.
John, We received your thank your card the other day and being the old school guy that I am, I was impressed. Our experience with First Mark and John Applegate was and continues to be fantastic. I just reached out because I listen to Dori Monson and I thought, "how good can these guys be?" Well, you guys are that good and I am pleased as punch. I continue to tell everyone I know about John and FirstMark, we are very happy with our new coverage.
We are pleased to save money, but John's willingness to answer questions about our other policies and recommendation to keep our house with our current company impressed us. He was truly an expert and not just a salesman trying to earn a commission. I have already recommended him to several of my friends.

This sounds like a commercial, but Rob at First Mark saved us over $3k on our home, auto, and RV policies. And, I came from a previous insurance broker that supposedly 'shopped around' to find us the best deal. He also got earthquake coverage for our house for the same rate we were previously paying! Which is unheard of! Thanks, Rob!
Matt Smith helped my family and I with our home insurance. He found us great rates. Was extremely knowledgeable, answered all of my questions without skipping a beat. Matt treated me with the upmost respect. Phenomenal customer service!!
The way Dan Fortune communicates with specificity and clarity works for us. We know what he can do, what he will do, and when he'll get it done. In our first meeting, his people skills (introducing himself, learning about and engaging with us) came through effectively--something we look for that is missing with so many other service-oriented professionals. Dan took time, kept us informed, and ultimately presented beneficial options we didn't know about. All told, we like he does things! Thanks.

Gail did a fantastic job. She matched our coverage and still saved us just over 2000.00 per year. No hard selling, no hassle just honest straight forward advice. Dori Monson is the reason I called in the first place. Glad I listened to him. Thank you firstmark.
Your ability to find the best price for us is a major factor. Also understanding our needs as far as having a new driver on our policy. We absolutely love it. Thank you so much
John Applegate is an outstanding Property & Casualty agent. His service was prompt and professional. He didn't just 'provide a quote'. He worked with me to put together an insurance package including Homeowners, Auto, and Personal Liability that improved our coverages while saving a bunch of money. More importantly, John and FirstMark are trustworthy... and that's invaluable.

I worked with Ken Meyer and was very pleased. He was very responsive and knowledgeable about all our needs. We ended up with bundled coverage for our home, car, truck, trailer, boat and second property. This is better coverage then we previously had and saves us $900+ a year over our existing policy, which we had been covered by for over 30 years. We couldn't be happier and will defiantly be mentioning them to friends and family. Thanks again
After 47 years with another carrier, we finally heeded the advice from KIRO radio ads and had FirstMark go over our insurance needs. The same exact coverage saved us $2,000 (yes, $2,000) per year! The time, care and thoroughness Gail afforded us was outstanding. We highly recommend FirstMark - just don't wait as long as we did! Kim & Mary
