"I feel very fortunate to have contacted Kevin Kolbe when I was first traveling to Grinnell to find a rental home for a friend who was moving from the West Coast.  I was immediately struck with how professional and responsive Kevin was—and how knowledgeable about “all things Grinnell.”   It was a very busy time of year for him, but he found time to help me, and he continued to be helpful throughout the process of my friend’s move.  Months later, when my friend, Donna, decided to start looking for a home to buy in Grinnell, Kevin was equally responsive; showing homes, giving honest opinions, and providing valuable advice about the Grinnell market.  Donna’s search ended happily with her recent purchase of a Mayflower patio home.  Donna and I highly recommend Kevin Kolbe to anyone needing help with Grinnell area real estate." - Maxine S

"I've been working with Ramsey Weeks for over 15 years.  In that time, they have never failed to provide my family world class service at a tremendous value.  They take proactive steps to make sure the coverage and policies we have fit both our needs and our budget.  When I have questions they respond back with fast, accurate information.  I don't waste my time looking for coverage anywhere else." -Curtis C

"Thank you Kevin, for all that you did to make this process so amazingly smooth for us! I was just so completely thankful that we didn't have to deal at all with the transition of renters, arranging repairs, etc. when selling our home...that was juts so, so valuable to us, especially living out of town. You were so prompt with correspondence as well! If I have an opportunity to reccomend you as a realtor, I will, highly!!" - Melanie B

"We are so pleased with our partnership with Kevin throughout this process. As first time home-buyers, we had a lot of questions that Kevin of course answered for us, but he also offered us some perspective on the parts of the process that were blind spots for us. Kevin was extremely responsive over both email and text message; that kind of communication was very important to us and helped us feel confident about the whole process, from start to finish." -Tim & Sarah B

“A big thank you to Collin Swick at Ramsey Weeks for your help with our insurance needs!  The individualized coverage tailored to our precise needs not only helped us assure our coverage was exactly what we needed, but it also helped us save money on coverages that really didn’t apply.  Taking the time to meet with us multiple times, and yet never making us feel rushed or pressured was so refreshing. Doing business with you was our pleasure!”  -Pam M - Owner, Ballyhoo In Ink

“Ramsey-Weeks has always taken care of the Brandt family from any insurance need to real estate! I cannot say enough good things about the staff, especially Darcy Swick & Alex Plate. Darcy is so knowledgeable about everything insurance, she is prompt with her customer service & a true joy to be around. Alex helped us with the purchase of both our homes, she is so smart & sweet, goes above and beyond during & after the sale, & got the job done for us on a home that required some work. Thanks to all at Ramsey weeks for taking such good care of us, always!"  -Taylor B

"You always hear commercials about buy local. I can't even imagine going through what I did without Ramsey-Weeks. Darcy Swick and Cindy Pollock were there the majority of the day. It's really hard to even dwell on that day, but what would I have done? How would I have dealt with all this? I am forever grateful for everything they have done for me. You cannot ask for better service than with Ramsey-Weeks."  - Sherry B

"Thank you Kevin for everything you did through the home buying process. You met every challenge and really helped put both our minds at ease. I couldn't be happier with our experience, nor do I have enough words to express my gratitude!" -Ken

"I’ve been really pleased to have the Ramsey Weeks team as part of our business.  The insurance world for business owners can be confusing on one hand and at the same time hard to differentiate between one provider or another.  The Ramsey Weeks team and especially Collin have really gone out of their way to provide solid explanations of options in coverages and have left us feeling really settled with our decisions.  As a business owner, some many other matters take priority over thinking about insurance until you need it.  With this team making sre that I have the coverages I need and access to talk with them at anytime, it provides a peace of mind to focus on the pressing matters of a successful business - we’re really happy with both the service and the options we get with Ramsey-Weeks!" -Doug & Marilyn S

"Alex is awesome! Went above and beyond what we expected. She worked very hard to help us find the perfect home. She was amazing to work with and made the house buying process less stressful. Anyone who needs a realtor in the area needs to give her a call!" - Kameron & Keeley

He patiently answered all our questions about the selling process and made our experience as worry free as possible. We recommend Kevin whole-heatedly as the person you can work with in complete confidence."  - Ira and Susan Strauber

“When looking for an agent, I always want to know they care about my family and me. I also want to know that I have someone I can count on that has my best interest in mind. Colin has been a wonderful example of that to my family. He has gone above and beyond to make sure we are getting the right insurance we need for the right price. He has also been someone who has been interested in my family and not just for business. This is what makes Ramsey-Weeks insurance special. They don’t just care about your business, they care about you.” -Phil C

"My expectation is to have an agent that cares about me and my family and wants to be sure I have the right insurance, at the right time, for the right reasons and at the right cost. Darcy has exceeded these expectations time and time again!" - Former President and CEO of the Grinnell Regional Medical Center - Todd L

"Not too long ago I switched agencies after a number of unpleasant experiences with another agent. The other agent disappeared whenever I needed to ask questions about a possible claim. Paul Pohlson was busy with a number of claims during the backup of sewer in Grinnell. He made time for me to talk to me and go through the process." - Tom S

"Collin provided us great service while also getting us a lower rate on our our home and car insurance. I really appreciate how he explained our coverage and made sure we had the right amount of coverage not just the cheapest rate. I would recommend Collin and Ramsey-Weeks if you are looking for a great insurance company!" -Thomas F

"Claim service you can count on... When we looked at the storm damage, one thing that never crossed our minds was to worry about insurance. We knew that our friends at Ramsey-Weeks had set us up with appropriate coverage and that they would go to bat for us personally if things got rough. We can truly say we have had a very positive experience with Ramsey-Weeks and Allied Insurance." - Neal And Barb Van E

“I would like to take a moment to recognize Collin Swick for assisting me with switching my auto insurance over from State Farm. Collin took the time to explain all of the plans that were available to me and did it in a timely manner that I was able to review the policies further so that I made the right decision. He didn’t rush me and answered multiple questions that I had. Once I started the new auto policy, I received a letter in mail stating that there was an issue with my automatic payments and that the payment wasn’t coming out of my account like it was supposed to. I received this notice on a Saturday and called Collin right away. It didn’t matter that it was on a weekend, he answered the phone and reassured me that he would look into the issue right away. By the time Monday rolled around Collin had taken care of it the issue was fixed! Collin is always very friendly and has wonderful customer service. He is a great asset to the Ramsey Weeks team!”  -Catelyn G

“I transferred my personal lines over to Nationwide from State Farm earlier this year. Not only did Paul Pohlson and Collin Swick save me over $300 a year, but provide me with GREAT services. As an agent myself, I combed thru the policy and they helped me add on additional coverages that was not provided in my previous policy. Since we have taken out the home & auto policies, Collin has checked up on us at least once every three weeks, where my previous agent's staff would only reach out to me at renewal. Last week I was in an accident, I texted Collin about 7:30 in the morning stating that I was in an accident and to give me a call when he had a chance. He called within minutes to check on my daughter and myself. He walked me through the claims process and made it easy. The claim adjustor called me within a few hours. Collin went out of his way to call/text me at least 6 times last week to just check in and see how the claim was going. I am very impressed with him and his outstanding customer services. He is a great asset to your company.”  - Gabby F, CLCS

“The world of insurance can be overwhelming, confusing and frustrating. We all know we need insurance but it can seem impossible to decide on which policies are truly the best. That’s why you want an insurance agent that you can trust to have your interest at heart and that will strive to get the best policy for you and your family. Collin and the Ramsey Weeks team have consistently provided my parents and I quick and informed responses to all of our questions throughout the years. They have more than earned our trust and we look forward to working with them long into the future.” - Nate A

"The day that the hail storm hit Grinnell in early April 2010 was the day that we brought our infant daughter Reese home from the hospital. We spent her first night at home, along with her 2-year-old and 4-year-old brothers, with no power. The next day Paul Pohlsen called my husband, JT, and said that he had alerted West Bend that we would have a claim, and that we should be hearing from an agent soon. We had phone calls within 24 hours regarding the damage to our home and vehicles, and we had an adjuster here within days. Paul Pohlson, Darcy Swick, and the employees at Ramsey Weeks were incredibly helpful. As young homeowners - we had never experienced the claim process before. Ramsey Weeks and West Bend worked collaboratively to meet our needs - and we came out of the situation with our home completely restored. Thank you to all who worked so hard to serve this community during that time. " - JT and Tara A

"We have been very pleased with the service we've received since we started working with Ramsey-Weeks for our home and auto insurance. It has been extremely helpful to have someone right here in Grinnell readily available to answer questions and assure us things are being handled correctly. We know Darcy cares about us as a family and will do all she can to watch out for our best interests." - Levi and Julie D
