I just wanted to say Thank You! again for the advice you gave me. It was a very stressful time for me, and you definitely helped reduce that stress. I hope all of your customers find you as valuable a resource as I have!

It is nice to work with someone who is looking out for our best interest in the long-term. We will never use anybody else.

Andrew & Olivia Powell
As a claims adjuster in the insurance industry, I work with many agents on a daily basis. Out of all the agents I work with, I chose Travis Gensler to handle my protection because of his honesty and helpfulness. He always goes above and way beyond what a normal agent does.

Christopher Loving
Travis was thorough and exceeded my expectations. He did an excellent job.

Corey & Josh Brown
Being a new business owner, and not knowing what to do, I greatly appreciate the time and energy Travis put into helping me understand how the coverages worked for me and my business.

Brenton Brown
Travis helped us with our insurance needs from across the country while we were setting up our company and relocating long distance. His assistance was invaluable in answering all of our questions and meeting our needs.

Lauren Wendlandt
Travis was very helpful in explaining Medicare Supplemental Insurance to me. He was extremely expeditious in getting my policy in place. AND, he saved me a considerable amount of money over the premium I was being charged by my former insurer.

Sandra Harper
Travis was great to work with. He answered all of our questions and didn’t pressure us to sign up with him. He gave us time to look over the materials and check with other companies to compare. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Thank you so much for helping us pick out our health insurance and prescription coverage after we retired. I will get in touch with you if we need anything else. By the way, I have told several of my friends about you. Thanks!

Gerald & Garnett Rinehart
What a great experience! I am a single older woman, old enough to be on Medicare but still working and HAD insurance at work. I was getting ready to lose my insurance at work, so being insurance ignorant, I needed to find someone who would be patient enough to help me find what I needed and could afford. I found him by looking in the phone book for an agent with my car insurance company with Medicare Insurance knowledge. He spent three hours with me that day, patiently going over every option in the country and matching it to my needs and financial ability. He answered all of my uneducated questions and finally helped me to choose the best plan for me and one that would take me through for the rest of my life. That wasn't the end either. As I started through the government red tape of switching all the cards, paperwork and payment schedules I had more questions and, once again, he patiently walked me through all of that. I will hit January 1st on my feet and running smoothly.

Pat Townsend
We started working with Travis Gensler in the spring of 2007. He helped us update our home policy to include full replacement value – which ended up being just what we needed and with good, though unfortunate, timing. Our home was burglarized in June 2007. It was a horrible experience. Like in the movies when a house is just ransacked…that was our home. The emotion involved in the experience ranged from anger and violation to some relief. Relief because Travis helped us through the entire ordeal, and we had the coverage we needed for the damage and items stolen. Without the review and update of our policy, we would not have been covered well. So, with thanks and appreciation, I highly recommend working with Travis Gensler.

Amber & Mark Dickensheets
Beacon Point Insurance has been amazing through all of our claims. Travis was very fast on his response time when we were in need.
