Consumer Reports rates AutoOwners high for svc and prices, State Farm very low.  No I don't sell insurance and don't have either co.

USAA if you served in the military.

A little off-topic but be mindful that a Lake Martin property is different than average. The land is worth more than the improvements in many cases so consider this when purchasing insurance.

I highly recommend Bobby Ryals St Farm, Dadeville; most insurers now wont write homeowners unless you also do cars with them; avoid ALFA at the lake ( I own a mortgage company so i have some insight); Ive also been with St farm since 1966

Allstate has such awesome home owner rates. Love the company in Alexander City.

After you go the State Farm route, contact an independent rep that can shop all the other companies like Cincinnati, Met Life, Progressive, etc.  This will give you a good comparison.

I use Greenhalgh in Bham.  Doesn’t matter where they are located.  They will shop multiple companies and find the best deal.  Karen is my contact and has served me well for many 10+ years. 205-967-8800

Have any of the folks that have commented ever had cliams and how were they handled?

Thank you all for the input.

I've had a couple of small claims that were handled quickly and to satisfaction by USAA.  Since your alias is LSU, I suggest you contact some of you classmates that have gone thru hurricanes like Katrina.  You learn the real quality of your insurance company under tough circumstances.  Key info.....your sales agent may be the greatest guy in the world, but the company and adjustor rule your life in bad times, not the agent.

Along with USAA, four other home insurers—Amica, Erie, MetLife, and Auto-Owners—were among the most highly rated in Consumer Reports’ most recent survey of more than 85,000 subscribers. About 7,400 of them, or 8 percent, reported filing claims from 2013 to 2016 with a company on our ratings chart.
