This is an excellent agency. We have been customers for over 25 years. When I first went in to compare prices, I was shocked at how great the savings were, for better insurance. The few claims we have had over the years were all handled quickly and exceptionally professionally. We have recommended the agency to several friends, all of whom switched after consulting with the agency.

After ten years, as a customer with Nationwides, I felt it was time to find a comparable or better insurance coverage that is affordable. I visited lots of websites and had many conversations with sales reps of major insurance companies.

I just happen to come across Joseph Saeger at Yutz-Merkle Insurance Agency, Inc. (YMIA). My auto sales rep recommended I speak with Joe, while my husband and I were in the process of purchasing his pick-up truck. The experience has been a pleasant one from the start. Joe is the epitome of customer service and is very accommodating. It felt as if we were family friends for years. I may have been overbearing with my repetitive queries but he was very patient with me. He spoke to me at a level I can understand. I was able to bundle my home and auto at a cheaper price than all the other insurance companies and similiar to more coverage.

So my takeaway from all this is that YMIA has been all around great experience . I felt assured, never pressured, and the quick turn around service made me a customer with Yutz-Merkle Insurane Agency, Inc.

My agent is Joe and I’m extremely pleased with his customer service, he is truthful, sweet and thorough which is why I send all my friends and family in to see him for their insurance needs. Thanks Joe and the Yutz-Merkle team :)

I’ve known Jim Honochick for 15+ years. We have worked on several projects together. First and foremost, Jim is a man of the highest integrity. He is totally unselfish and will always put his partner/client’s interest above his own. Jim has great intellect. He is not pushy with it, but gently helps lead the way to solve problems. Lastly, he is one heck of a lot of fun to work with. A sense of humor often accompanies high intellect. Jim is no exception to this rule. I wholeheartedly recommend Jim Honochick to you!

Have been with Erie for Home and Auto insurance for over 30 years. Guided four young drivers through the Driving Permit, Junior and Senior License process. Had a few claims for deer collisions, icy road mishaps and towing all taken care of quickly. The Erie insurance agent also guided me through the Classic Car insurance process. Overall it has been a good experience.
