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.

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 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 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.

What a stroke of luck and providence that my financial advisor suggested I talk to you about my mother’s Long Term Care Insurance. As an attorney, I have been dealing with insurance for thirty years. However, I never had experience with Long Term Care Insurance. I have come to appreciate your advice and expertise over these last several months.

Tobe Gerard is a true professional in the sense of striving to understand the client’s concerns and placing the client’s best interests first, and in her continual professional interest in the Long Term Care insurance industry. I have worked with Tobe for the past 4 years on LTC cases for my insureds and am always impressed with not only her knowledge but also her ability to listen and relate to people.

Long term care insurance was the furthest thing from my mind before an estate planner recommended that my husband and I consider it in order to protect our assets if we ever needed long term care. I wasn’t keen on imagining myself in a situation that would require long term care, but just to cover all bases, we met with Tobe — and then put off thinking about it for another year. At that time, Tobe made me aware of changes in various company policies that impacted women and the type of coverage I might want. I decided to apply and she guided me through myriad questions in a clear, timely, and thorough way, never being directive about particular companies, always focused on listening to what was most important to me. The application process can be difficult at various points – it can seem as if your health is called into question as you make your way through endless checklists of symptoms – but Tobe kept it upbeat, gave good guidance, and actually made it pleasant. When the process was complete and I had my policy in hand, I was sorry we had to part ways. In short, Tobe is terrific and great to work with – I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a policy or even to someone simply wanting to explore why LTCI might be a good idea.
