"This past week, I have sent multiple emails to Maria regarding insurance certificates. Unfortunately, the company requesting them would come up with a new revision that they failed to mention prior. However, Maria has been amazing with completing the edits in a timely manner and with no complaints. My wife and I have been customers for several years and we have zero complaints regarding Al Chen’s office. We just want to say thank you much for all you do."

"No one likes to buy insurance, but since we all have to you might as well use the best agents. There are none better than Al and Diane. They really work for your best interests. They insure you for the things you need and don't sell you insurance for things you don't. They also keep tabs on a regular basis and inform you of any changes that you might consider making to your policies. On annual reviews, they have even made suggestions that lowered my costs. it just doesn't get any better than this if you need insurance"

"ABSOLUTELY HEAVENLY SERVICE!!!!! Through multiple vehicle changes, a renters policy, various claims and life changes this group has walked me through the best way to use and apply the mandatory and necessary coverage to avoid legal complications and financial ruin. I know they have many policyholders to serve and I dont have multimillion dollar policies but with their consistent involvement and guidance they make me feel like i am the only one in their portfolio and that i do have multimillion dollar policies. My insurance office is as much an asset as the policies they assist me with. Always saving me a dollar while improving my coverage they are a mandatory tool in my toolbox of adulthood."

"We started working with Diane, Maria, Deanna, Jen, and Al Chen at State Farm when we moved to California. We've stuck with them through changing insurance needs and two subsequent moves across the state! They remember the name of every new client and always treat you like a family friend. Personal attention from the team is backed up by help from State Farm evenings and weekends, and the rates have always been neck and neck with the carriers that advertise price first and service second. Our ten year "anniversary" as customers is just around the corner, and we couldn't be happier we lucked into landing so close to their office when we first got here."

"Al Chen’s office has taken care of all my coverage needs for many years. The staff is truly like family to me! Al, Diane, Maria & Jenny go above and beyond to make sure I am always getting the best possible rates and ALL the discounts! I have dealt closest with agent Maria Friis, who is hands down the BEST! She's professional and a pleasure to deal with. Always has the answers for me and is quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. This is just one of the many reasons I remain a loyal State Farm customer. Maria, you ROCK!"

"Although out of country, Al handled our account with State Farm. We needed some work done that could only be done through his office. Short handed at the time, Al still made it a priority to see that we were taken care of in a very timely manner. I would vote for him agent of the year."

"Al Chen and his team have taken excellent care of me and my home insurance needs for over 15 years. They are proactive, highly responsive, thoughtful, helpful, kind and truly care about their customer needs. I have had them "go to bat" for me with State Farm headquarters and fairly represent my interests. While you may question some company mottos, in my experience, Al and his team show up when I need them, like a good neighbor or dear friend."

"I would like to say that I was not surprised when I saw the 5.0 rating for this office. My review is over due, every time I have a question I either call or email and they are able to answer my questions and help me with any policy changes that I have. Everyone that works is this office is super friendly, but my go to person is Maria. Thank you Maria for all your hard work and dedication to your customers; your work does not go unnoticed. Thank you! -Veronica and Mario"

"Al Chen's State Farm office has insured our family for many years. We have a solid package for home and family vehicles, and has advised me through inevitable life changes. Al Chen has helped our kids "grow" into responsible, insured adults since they were teens, too. The staff are friendly, competent, and knowledgable. Nice to have a local office who take time to personally invest in knowing each member of our family by name. Highly recommend Al Chen's State Farm office in the Pinole/El Sobrante area."
