"Deb Bresnahan at Barbara Shelly's State Farm is outstanding. She took time to step me through several related policies, tuning them to give me the best value coverage without overlap. Want an agent you trust--see Deb Bresnahan."

"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"

"I just recently moved to Virginia and needed to switch my State Farm automobile insurance coverage to this state. Robin Lobus, Account Representative, provided kind, courteous and quick service. She answered all of my questions and provided a quote within 1 day. She even provided information on obtaining a Virginia driver license, automobile title and automobile registration. Thanks for your help Robin!"

"Barbara is so thorough when exploring the best insurance plans. My husband I have had our auto and home insurance with her for several years. When I was unable to reach the agent that had set me up with health insurance, Barbara saw me immediately to help me make sure the drug plan I had in place was the best one for 2022. She patiently spent hours with me going over every detail comparing insurance companies and we ended up staying with the insurance I had, thus she received no remuneration. All she cared about was that I would have the best coverage possible. She will always be our agent."

"Everyone from Barbara Shelly to the newest member of staff are all competent knowledgeable people. Robin Lobus often ends up with the short straw when I call but she is always pleasant and helpful. I've been with State Farm all across the country and my experience here in Williamsburg matches or exceeds my highest expectations. Thanks everyone at the Shelly State Farm Insurance Agency"

"Robin is AMAZING. She follows up, answers every question, and is always looking out for her customers. I had planned to move to Williamsburg 2 years ago and finally purchased a home and Robin was a life saver and she had kept in touch with me. That is service you do not get anywhere! I highly recommend this office and Robin."

"Was please to have gotten insurance I can live with after yrs of being cheated by one insurance company. I was not sure at first if I could get a reasonable quote from State Farm, but was surprised I did. My highest regard to Robin Lobus for all she did to get me coverage for my vehicles."

"Barbara & her team have worked to insure two properties; which included one property with a sizable emergency claim. The response was immediate and thorough! They return calls, they reply to information, they get answers from State Farm Central Office when needed, & they ALWAYS respond in a cheerful, informative way. I require an insurance agent whom I respect as well as feel confident with his/her team representing the office. I have found this in Barbara Shelly & her team. Definitely a Five Star!"

"We transitioned from our former home in Williamsburg to our post-retirement home on Gwynn's Island. Barbara Shelly and her team secured better coverage for our home at a better rate than we had had previously on the property. Barbara insures our three cars, personal items, boat, and house. We are very pleased with her attentive service, advice, and follow through."

"I am pleased to post this 5 star approval rating for Barbara Shelly, primary agent of the Williamsburg / Jamestown Rd State Farm office. This rating is based on my 10+ years of experience with her management of my family's insurance needs - home, auto, umbrella. "Barb" is knowledgeable, extremely competent, and provides customer service beyond the norm. Over the years, she has outlined different scenarios to meet my family's needs, and has offered many insurance planning tips that have been enormously helpful during my family's transitioning from New Jersey to Virginia, and in my son's recent move from DC to upstate New York. I really saw her in action up close when she expertly navigated a complex auto insurance claim involving an out-of-country, underinsured driver who totalled my car. She has reached out to me on several occasions to meet in person to review our insurance policies, provide updates as needed, and just "see how we are doing." What insurance agent does that?? Barb comes highly recommended; in choosing her as your insurance agent, you will not be disappointed!"
