"Kris Yocum has been my State Farm ins agent for many years. So many, in fact, that I don't recall. I have auto and renter's insurance thru her. Staff there are always courteous and answer my questions in a timely manner."

"I have had Kris Yocum as my State Farm agent for many years. Kris and her team are great to work with for all insurance needs -auto, home, and life. Was very helpful adding teenagers to our policy to helping them as they were going out on their own for renters insurance and jewelry insurance. Kris and Shaye always go above and beyond to make sure we are treated like family and have peace of mind with our insurance. I could not ask for a better agent and team!"

"Someone is always there to pick up the phone when you need them. We no longer live near Republic, but have not switched because they still get everything sent up to us fast."

"We were transferred to Kris when our agent passed away. In the 15 years we were with Burlin, we never received policy increases. Since being switched over to Kris, our policy has gone up over $1200 in a year. With no notifications. I've asked twice now to be switched back to my original agency, and it hasn't happened yet. All I can say is we are very unhappy with there service, and am looking for someone else"

"My wife and I married and moved to Republic in 1988. We shopped around and chose the local State Farm agency for our insurance needs. Our family grew and State Farm was always there for us in good times and bad. We moved away in 1995 but kept the State Farm agency in Republic for our insurance needs. Kris Yocum and her team of professionals are top notch and have continued to exceed our expectations. When bad things happen, it's nice knowing Kris and her team is a simple phone call away. Recently, our car broke down on the Interstate coming home from a long trip to Baltimore. I called Kris and within 30 minutes we were towed to a service facility and safety. Shay, a wonderful member of her staff, followed up and checked on us for the next couple of days to make sure we were taken care of. Over the years, that is how it's always been .... Auto, Home, Life .... as it should be. Right? Many thanks to State Farm, Kris Yocum and her team!"

"My wife and I were closing on a house the next day, and my current Insurance agency was unable to get the required paperwork to the title company in time to close on our house on time. Shay with State Farm procurred me a policy within 20 minutes with all required paperwork need to close on time. I also ended up saving around $350 annually making the switch. Thank you."

"We are a 12 year client with this firm. We have lived a blessed life protected by our friends at State Farm. House, acreage, barn, sheds, teenage drivers, rental property…Shaye has been “my go-to girl” and is extremely responsive and on top of all that life has challenged us with. We are grateful for their service this last decade as they have truly brought us much confidence, protection and mostly, peace of mind."
