Tobe has been instrumental to our business as we develop our clients’ financial plans. The cost of healthcare is #1 on many people’s minds as it has been rising at such a rapid rate lately. In particular, we work with many single women who want to plan for their care later in life. Tobe’s consultative nature is so comforting and appealing to everyone we have introduced to her. She is the antithesis of what people expect of an insurance agent. Myself and my team at Twelve Points couldn’t feel more fortunate to have such a consummate professional as a resource for us and our clients.

You have completed your job in helping us with LTC insurance. And so, I want to thank you for your help. You have been just wonderful – very professional, efficient, clear, and with a human touch and a heart. One cannot count on all of that from the professionals we work with. We are thoroughly satisfied with your work on our behalf. We will be happy to recommend you to others.

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 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.
Nine years ago my family and I purchased a long term care policy for my mother from Tobe Gerard. Tobe was wonderful to work with, helping us find a policy that was affordable and that provided a basic safety net for my mother. Now, my mother is 92 years old and needs to draw on her policy benefits. I called Tobe for help in navigating the claims process. She jumped right in, got things moving and my mother is now receiving needed benefits. What impressed me most about Tobe is that she not only works hard to find the best insurance products for her customers, she also cares that the policies she sells deliver on the benefits they promise.

Tobe was an absolute delight to work with. She was a consummate professional who provided me with a comprehensive summary of Long Term Care insurance, including an honest assessment of which company, program and policy features AND benefits might work best for our family. She was a wealth of information, responsive to my many questions, and patient as I researched Long Term Care Insurance and ultimately purchased a policy. I’m glad I did, and am so pleased that I purchased it through Tobe Gerard Insurance, LLC!

Tobe Gerard is nothing short of a miracle worker. After months of struggling to rescue a long-term care application from one provider’s rejection pile, Tobe found me and my wife an alternative, high-quality provider with essentially the same policy and for a substantial discount. What’s more, she’s a super communicator who will walk you through the gobbledygook lingo of the insurance world.

Tobe is an exceptional professional with deep knowledge and commitment to her clients. She is a woman of uncompromising integrity and I recommend her without reservation. I’ve recommended her to my own clients, and the best recommendation I can give her is that she also wrote the LTC policy for my Mom.
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.
I want to thank Tobe Gerard for her devoted patience and guidance throughout our time together in securing a LTCI policy for me. She was extremely knowledgeable about all of the different types of policies that were available in the market today. She was always very responsive to all of the follow-up questions that I might have had. 6 years prior I had been introduced to Tobe through my financial provider. Many of his clients, including himself, were LTCI policy holders through Tobe and her team. At that point in time, life had seemed to have gotten in the way and I didn’t secure a policy, but I had not forgotten her efforts in presenting all of the different options to me back then. Moving forward 6 years, I had a very close family member that was going through a medical situation and there was no LTCI policy. I can tell you through this experience that it wasn’t pleasant finding out that traditional medical insurance does not provide many of the securities that one might need in the future. this experience was the immediate reason that I reached out to Tobe again. From start to finish the process was very easy. We had a few meetings together to start the process. Then there was the research stage where we talked about the various options. I had some questions that came along and Tobe answered them all. With Tobe’s guidance we looked at which policies could fit my situation best and I decided upon one. Once Tobe delivered the policy it produced a feeling of great happiness and security knowing that I was adding this layer of protection for me and my family. I truly recommend Tobe Gerard with all of your long term care needs. Thx Tobe…
