    Agent not listed - I believe it was John Ross-Hill but the survey would not let me advance unless I chose a name.

    Agent was Alanna Beal, not listed in the drop down menu. It would not let me submit the form unless I picked a name so I picked another at random. She was quick to answer my emails and questions. I would contact her in the future should I require any further assistance. Thx

    It would be more efficient if the limitations of the rate offerings were posted on your website so that I could determine my eligibility. The advice the agent I spoke with was excellent and very helpful!
