Testimonials

We have had a policy on our home, vehicles and our Recreational vehicles for almost 40 years with Falls Insurance. Our contact there, Christine, goes above and beyond for us. We have so appreciated the service we have been given, so when it was time to get our Medicare insurance, we contacted Falls Insurance. They were great. We met with Josh who explained all of the insurance benefits and even had costs for my meds. When I had a question he would immediately answer me with a phone call or email. I know most of the agents there and their service is excellent.

I first called Josh when I lived out of state and was contemplating moving to the Idaho Falls. He took the time to make us feel we would be welcomed to the area. We did indeed buy a home and he was even kind enough to check on the house while I was still 2500 miles away. He has helped us with all of our insurance needs and helped us navigate the Obamacare maze . He has saved us thousands of dollars per year with his knowledge and expertise of the insurance industry.
