Client Testimonials

Jim has been my insurance agent for many years. He has provided my family and me with disability, long-term care, life and medical insurance. He does a comprehensive job of explaining all of the available insurance options including coverage differences and costs. He has always assisted me through each step of the application process and has always been very prompt responding to any questions that I had. Once the application process was complete and approved, he provided a hardcopy of all policies including a description of the coverage, term, premiums and deductibles. I would definitely recommend Jim for any insurance needs that you may have.

Dennis Astor

One can imagine that being self-employed, experiencing hearing loss and being a reciprocant of a cochlear implant, would be a challenge to find a health insurance company who would write a policy for myself and two children. I exhausted my efforts and then was fortunate that a client of mine recommended Jim Looft. Within weeks Jim found me an affordable plan. His follow up over the past year has been exceptional. I am grateful for Jim’s persistence to find a plan for my specific needs.

I have been working with Jim Looft for over 10 years. He is very knowledgeable, patient, straightforward and financially savvy. Over the years, I have often referred friends to Jim. I always tell them: Jim is the Clark Howard of insurance and money management! I happily refer him because he is honest, he knows his stuff and he will save you money. Two individuals that I referred to Jim last year each told me that they saved several hundred dollars per month by going with his recommendations...and they increased their benefits at the same time. I feel like financial advice can be very confusing and intimidating, but not when I work with Jim. He will really listen to your needs and help you to achieve your goals in a financially smart way.

Saundra Bagwell

I’ve worked with Jim Looft for a long time.....maybe 15 years? Time has a way of getting away. He’s always been agreeable when I called and wanted to lower costs by raising deductibles, etc. He’s also always been very knowledgeable of other programs, companies, etc. I’d be glad to recommend him to anyone.  

Jim Drew

Jim was highly recommended to me 10 years ago by another professional in the insurance industry to fashion a Disability Insurance Plan tailored to my needs.  It was just what I needed for my business.  I was vulnerable before his help.  I recently asked him to review Long Term Care Insurance for my wife and me.  Although we ultimately made a judgment call that Long Term Care Insurance wasn’t appropriate for our situation (it is the right choice for many others), Jim was informative and patient in his analysis knowing he wasn’t earning a fee for his significant effort.  It is clear he has the best interest of his clients as his primary motivation.  

Lynn Rainey, Attorney

Jim Looft has been attending to our family insurance needs for over 15 years.  Coverage began with individual health insurance policies for both our sons after they reached the age for being removed from our family health insurance.  Subsequently, we continued to purchase a life insurance plan and long-term care plans for ourselves.  Our oldest son purchased life and disability insurance when he started a family of his own. 
Jim’s knowledge and expertise have been invaluable to us.  He never hesitates to answer any questions and thoroughly explain details. 
It has been a pleasure to work with such a professional individual and we highly recommend his services. 

Pam and Jim Johnson 

My husband and I have entrusted with Jim Looft our health insurance needs for over twenty-five years.  He is very professional and friendly. He is easy to reach by phone whenever I need to speak to him. He has also helped my adult children acquire health insurance coverage. All of our experiences have been positive and I would highly recommend Jim Looft to family, friends and anyone!    

Ginger Brown

Jim has not only been my agent but my friend for over 25 years.  He has always taken care of all my insurance needs and makes sure I always have the best policy at the best price. Thanks for all your help.

Scott Roberts

I met Jim Looft by phone about 17 years ago. He has been a big help and a great fellow friend  ever since. His help with the changing health insurance of my husband when he retired was way beyond valuable. Not only did Jim take matters completely into his own hands while discussing matters with our provider. He accomplished results that saved us a very big deal of money while giving us better insurance coverage. We did not have to wait on the phone for hours, we did not have to listen to insurance gibberish - none. Jim did it all and he did it perfectly well. Jim kept us informed in a way that we could understand and add information from our perspective. 

Jim was also instrumental in making us understand and then decide how to secure proper retirement and which ways to choose to best invest for future incomes. Since our situation focused heavily on non-social-security income he made sure we understood the possibilities and possible developments of different investment strategies.

One thing stays the same through the years: when I call Jim, he immediately and always picks up the phone himself and he immediately knows who I am and what our history is with him and his services. Jim makes you feel like family without ever losing his highly professional touch. I just hope we can count on him and his expertise for many, many years to come.   

Karin Hinrichs 

Jim Looft has been servicing the insurance needs of my family for over 20 years. I started working with Jim initially to obtain employee health, dental and disability insurance for our small business.  A few years later, I transferred all of my personal insurance over to Jim’s service.  My experience with Jim has always been positive.  He always brings several options to the table for discussion and provides honest and helpful feedback to help me make the best decisions.  I never feel pressured to choose the policy of a certain company as Jim presents all the facts and figures upfront and there are never any surprises.  Over the years, I have referred friends and coworkers to Jim and can’t imagine hesitating to do so in the future.

Terry Binienda

I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to my life insurance agent, Jim Looft, who has been very helpful and informative in getting me the right coverage and for helping me make the right decisions for me and my family.  This is always done with a great attitude and a smile.   There is no hard sell, he just gives me the information to allow me to make a decision.  I would highly recommend that anyone seeking advice on matters of life insurance get in touch with Jim Looft.   He is knowledgeable, friendly and really cares about his clients.  Thanks, Jim Looft!

Jim Looft set up an HSA insurance plan for me many years ago.  Since then, he has helped me lower the proposed premium increases on several occasions.  Jim has been a great resource for all my insurance questions.  He gives generously of his time and expertise.

Ralph Peeler, M.D.

I have been the managing partner of a law firm for over 15 years.  With as many things as I have to manage, I am very comfortable with the fact that Jim Looft has taken care of my insurance needs for that entire time.  He has been very responsive to all of our insurance needs and has kept us in front of the curve.  I do not hesitate in recommending Jim for any other business owner.

Robert Cohen

I contacted Jim when I first went self-employed four years ago for help in getting health insurance policies for my family.  From our first call, I could tell Jim was the guy I wanted to work with as a health insurance broker. He was friendly and helpful, but not pushy. I could tell he truly wanted to recommend the best solution for us, not the one that would earn him the biggest commission.  I have recommended Jim to others in my situation and would enthusiastically do so again!    

Don Sadler

I have had the privilege of having Jim Looft working on my behalf since he took me under his wing when I was a recent college graduate.  That was in 1988.  Jim had infinite patience in educating me about my insurance needs and continues to provide advice and counsel as my situation in life changes.  Truly one could not have a better agent working on their behalf.    

Charlene Kickbush, D.V.M.

Mr. Jim Looft has been my insurance agent for over 28 years.  He has provided me with life, health, disability, office overhead insurance, and also life insurance for my children.  He is the most knowledgeable agent I have come across, he  is honest, he always wants the best for me and my family.  He is always available and I trust him fully.  I feel so secure knowing that if something happens to me, he will take care of my family.  Not only have we become friends, I think of him as member of my family.    

Dr. M. Niknafs

I am thrilled to have made Jim’s acquaintance some 24+ years ago and to have had the opportunity to work with such a seasoned professional and gentleman.  What’s more, I find it quite worthy of note that I have taken time to write a recommendation.  Jim Looft is the kind of guy who would only recommend a product he would buy for himself and would describe in depth why he would.

In an ever changing world of insurance and estate planning, Jim knows the “taxman consequences” better than most.  He keeps current and is not afraid of changing courses with different products in midstream. Hard to find someone more capable.

Bill Schroth
Marietta, GA     
Small sales agency owner

I’ve been working with Jim Looft since 1991.  He arranged my private pension plan and provided me with health and disability insurance.  He and his programs coordinated well with my estate-planning attorney.  He can shop the market for you to get the best deal on some innovative programs.  Jim follows up and doesn’t let details fall through the cracks.  You want him on your team!        

David P. Spielvogel, MD

I am the Practice Administrator for a large medical practice in Marietta.  I have known Jim for almost ten years.  It has been a pleasure to work with him regarding our office insurance coverage.  His insurance knowledge has always been exceptional.  He is a very ethical broker and I would recommend his services without any reservation.    

Joyce C. Bracy
Marietta Neonatology, P.C.

We have worked with Jim for many years - he has made the confusion of medical insurance for my company, easy to understand.  We can always count on Jim; we consider Jim not only our insurance agent and friend, but expert in many other areas of insurance.  I feel confident and trust Jim Looft's recommendations!      

Paula Hyman, Owner       
Michael & Paula Hyman, Inc. 

Jim solved our health care insurance issue during a time when premiums were escalating even though we were not utilizing any services. As a small business owner, I was paying the premiums for my family and employees. We had a high deductible and premiums continued to rise yearly even though we were fortunate to be healthy and not require care. After my previous insurance provider and agent seemed unable or unwilling to help, I called Jim. He met with us, listened, and provided several alternatives which solved our problem.  Furthermore, he helped with the application process and followed up until the transition was completed.  I would highly recommend Jim Looft for your insurance needs.

Steve Wilson, Owner
Carter’s Pharmacy

I have been a satisfied client of Jim Looft's for many years now. He has my complete trust and confidence and I have entrusted him with several areas of my insurance needs (health, life, etc.). One of the things that first impressed me about Jim and his team is that they really listen to your needs and work to find solutions specific to your situation.  Jim will spend as much time with you as you need, and his knowledge of the industry makes him a valuable asset.  And I love the fact that he is an individual that you can reach on the phone whenever needed, vs. calling into some automated system that only ends in frustration and unanswered questions.  I have referred several friends to Jim Looft through the years, with the utmost confidence that they too would be completely satisfied. And in fact, I wouldn't say I'm simply a satisfied customer--I'm a loyal, raving fan!         

Derek LoVerde

Jim Looft was recommended to us when we became self-employed and felt helpless in the world of health insurance.  We have three children and needed guidance on how we could best be covered.  Jim listened to our needs and matched us up with the best plan for our family.  We continue to call him whenever we need to make a change as our needs change throughout the years.  He is very helpful and responsive and I have recommended him to several friends who are now using him as well.

I have known Jim Looft for over 15 years. He helped me in my Ophthalmology practice as well as with my personal insurance.  He has always been competent, trustworthy, and extremely helpful in dealing with my financial and personal insurance needs.  I would highly recommend him for insurance and financial advice. He has been a true friend through the years.           

John H. Nolen Jr., M.D., FACS

Jim has always impressed me with his work ethic and professionalism.  He makes a sincere effort to understand the needs of his clients and then has the ability to tailor an ideal fit to meet those needs.  I was recently impressed when he personally came to a skilled nursing facility to visit with my law partner who had suffered a massive stroke to make sure the disability claim was handled promptly and properly.  I endorse Jim's ethics and ability without reservation.

Please accept this as a ‘Thank You’ from one friend to another.  I believe strongly in recognizing those who have helped me personally and professionally.  This past week I received a check from Pan American for $21,620.  You have no idea the comfort zone that check puts me in with my ability to provide for my family.  They you so much for your advice 10-years ago that is impactful for me today. 

Warm regards,

Dr. Gary Rothenberg

I don't know how to thank you for getting me my home insurance when most insurance companies wouldn't insure my house in Florida, the Capital of Hurricanes, and at a price that fits our budget.  Now that's what I call ‘Service with a capital S.’ Thanks, also, for the exceptional Long-Term Care policies you helped us with!         

Frank Roberts

I have been privileged to know and work with Jim Looft as our company insurance advisor and representative for many years.  I am also pleased that he is my personal insurance advisor as well as other staff members of our company.  I can attest that he is knowledgeable, honest and always handles the task at hand himself and does not burden the policyholder.  He is always available for advice and you may be assured that it is the correct advice.  Thank you, Jim, for your many years of association with Cobb Eye Center and its staff members who continue to rely on your expertise.

Una M. Feltner – Administrator
Cobb Eye Center, LLP

I first started working with Jim around 1988, shortly after I had started practicing Podiatry in Albany.  I met Jim at a state meeting when he was giving a talk about disability insurance.  At the time, that was the last thing on my mind.  Jim came to Albany a short time later and came up with a disability plan for me.  Fortunately, I’ve never had to use it, but if he had not given me good advice at that time, I would not be able to afford it now.  More recently, Jim has helped me with long-term care insurance.  Jim has always been straight forward and very knowledgeable about the various insurance needs that I have had.  I am very thankful for his guidance in helping me with important insurance decisions.

J. Kenneth Durham, DPM

I have had the pleasure of working with Jim for over 20 years. He has been a great asset in helping me obtain both personal and business insurance. With Jim researching the products, I always know that we are getting a high quality package at a very competitive price.

JM Metcalf, M.D.

I have known Jim Looft for over 3 years.  During that time, he has demonstrated a sincere interest and joy in helping his clients find the best insurance available. His knowledge and understanding of the terms and uses of these policies was essential in helping me purchase a long term care policy that I am very comfortable with.  His low-key manner allowed me to mull over the benefits verse the costs at my own pace.  His integrity is apparent.  I will rely on his help in all matters of insurance in the future.

Debbie Saunders

Jim Looft has helped me with my insurance needs for many years and I can always count on Jim to give me an honest opinion.

Jim is a consummate professional, and l unreservedly recommend him to anyone with insurance needs.
