"I recently decided to change my auto and home insurance to a local insurance firm. State farm agent Nicole Demma was recommended to me. She was both pleasant and delightful . She offered me an insurance plan better than the one that I had. She has saved me money and giving me the option of having a local insurance company with an agent at hand able and willing to assist me. I couldn't be happier."

"I was in search of flood insurance for a new home purchase and when I called Scott Grates State Farm I spoke with Nicole. She was very eager to help me in this matter. She gave me quotes very quickly and was very pleasant to work with. After speaking with her in regards to what I called for I had her give me quotes for all my other insurance needs and after receiving those quotes, I was happy with the pricing. I ended up switching all my insurance to State Farm. The professionalism from Nicole was my deciding factor not to search elsewhere for quotes. Anyone in need of insurance needs, I strongly suggest you give Scott Grates State Farm office in Ilion, NY a try. You won’t be disappointed. LM"

"It took me too long to switch from USAA to State Farm because I thought that I was getting the best rates already. I decided to get quotes just to see, figuring I was right. Well I wasn’t. The rates and coverage I’m getting are hands down better, through State Farm. Nicole Demma is my agent in the Scotts Grates Agency. She took the time to explain my options, my coverages and what everything meant. She’s extremely responsive, as is the whole team in that office. I’m glad I got proved wrong. I switched all of my policies over and even opened several life insurance policies for myself and family members. I highly recommend Nicole as an insurance agent, goes above and beyond for her policy holders."
