"I have been a State Farm policy holder my entire adult life (several decades). I currently work with the Barbara Shelly agency in Williamsburg, VA. I have been absolutely and completely satisfied to have Barbara as my insurance agent for my residence, for my automobiles and for my umbrella liability policies. I find Barbara and each of her staff to be highly competent and to make me feel as welcome as family. If you have any manner of insurance needs, I unhesitatingly recommend going to Barbara Shelly Agency. They have my complete confidence. You will not be disappointed."

"Deb Bresnahan with Barb Shelley agency and Barb herself have been such great mama bears to work with I just can't express. In dealing with my aunt's estate, the underwriter was going to cancel my policy without allowing me the notice to make some repairs which I had unbeknownst to them, I had already started. The Shelley crew made success possible with this issue. Thank you so much. John S."

"Forget Jake from State Farm because I have Deb from State Farm! I called Barbara Shelly’s agency yesterday to get some last minute business policies and Deb Bresnahan went over and beyond to help. Not only did she get all of the policies I needed, she helped me with last minute changes and explained things in a manner that I was able to understand all while being professional and kind! She is truly a God-send. Thanks again Deb and State Farm"
