I am a former commercial casualty-property insurance broker, now retired from a national brokerage firm. I first met Tobe when she was a Long Term Care instructor at a Certified Insurance Counselor seminar I attended about eight years ago. I was impressed with her knowledge of LTC Insurance, as well as her ability to convey information in a clear and concise manner to the class, and keep it interesting. So, when I was finally ready to purchase LTC Insurance, Tobe was foremost in my mind, even though I know good local agents I could have also consulted about this product. Once I started working with Tobe, I realized that, not only was she exceptionally knowledgeable about LTC Insurance, and could explain it very clearly, but she was also very thorough, extremely responsive to my questions, and had very quick turn around on items she needed to check into. And, I discovered that she really cared about me and the protection she felt I needed. And, a plus, she is truly a very, very nice person.
Tobe Gerard is THE expert regarding LTC insurance! In the nature of my job, I work with several dozens financial advisors/wealth advisors; all top notch. I wholeheartedly recommend Tobe for LTC advice, contract review, and group policies. Based on my observations, most of the aforesaid advisers also call on Tobe for similar help…despite the fact that many of their firms can offer LTC products! Tobe is simply that reputable in her niche area. Tobe is also a wonderful person who deeply cares about her clients, referral sources, and those around her. I cannot recommend Tobe highly enough.
I have had the good fortune of knowing and working with Tobe Gerard for over 15 years. It is rare to find someone who possesses a solid level of technical proficiency with a passion to do what is right for her customers. She truly does care about her customers. Recently I bought an LTC policy from Tobe even though I live 250 miles away! I am proud to call her my agent!

Tobe Gerard is a true professional! We found her easy to work with and remarkably patient in explaining the sometimes complex information regarding Long Term Care Insurance. Tobe explained things well, respected our decision-making process and timetable, and was always approachable whenever we had questions. Tobe has a complete understanding of a range of insurance products. We found that we appreciated reviewing what several companies offered rather than looking at only one product. Now that we have selected the insurance that is right for us, Tobe continues to be a friendly, valued resource.

Tobe Gerard of Tobe Gerard Insurance worked with my wife and me in developing a plan for our insurance needs. She made us understand the nuances and intricacies of the terminologies, and various services vis-à-vis the premiums. Tobe readily and patiently answered our questions in detail, and walked us through the application process. Her initial interview with us was phenomenal in sifting through our needs and wants, and to finally design an appropriately tailored policy that met our requirements. We would enthusiastically recommend this agency to our friends.

Tobe was a pleasure to work with right from the beginning. She quickly responded to our initial outreach by visiting us to understand our needs and to provide us with educational material so that we could begin the process of learning about long-term care insurance. She demonstrated boundless patience (!) and maintained her sense of humor with our endless myriad questions and concerns, always making time to talk until we felt we had come to the best decision. She was very accommodating and her willingness to chat by phone or via email as many times as we needed was above and beyond, often responding off-hours. Tobe was invested in making sure we were well informed and did her best to research any questions she could not answer right away. Tobe is a wonderful educator. Her clarity and thoroughness enables her to explain concepts in a very clear and concise manner; she made what could be a daunting menu of benefits and combinations easily discernible. She was honest and forthright when she felt we were going astray or looking at aspects of policies that may not be in our best interest. At the same time, she was always respectful of our particular concerns, needs, preferences and hesitations. Understanding the nuances of the products and benefits and helping us to foresee the future while making us comfortable with our decisions (so that we could finally make a decision!) is what we appreciated most. She shared her history with the long term care insurance industry in such a way that we felt comfortable navigating the news stories, others’ skepticism, and our own fears about making such a long term financial commitment. Ultimately, with Tobe’s professional and skilled guidance, we were able to confidently choose a policy that seems like the right fit for us.

Tobe is one of the top experts in Long Term Care Insurance in the US. She is the person other insurance people turn to for answers. Her depth and breadth of knowledge is amazing. But even more impressive is the way she works with people. She listens to their concerns and develops a plan tailored to their individual needs. I know this because a number of my clients work with Tobe. I have known her since 2003 and she has always been the professional’s professional.

In the past 45 years, we have dealt with dozens of agents and representatives for my legal, economic and other needs. As we reflect on the quality of service that we have received, we can say, without reservation, that Tobe Gerard was the best of them all. When we needed advice concerning Long Term Health Care, we were fortunate to find Tobe Gerard. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, focused on the needs of the client above all other considerations, and a very nice person to work with. Thank you Tobe!
