"Marsden's office is swell! Been a State Farm customer for forever, and have no reason to shop for insurance elsewhere. Melissa got me set up with auto & renters when I first moved to Madison and she made it stupid easy. And they are always friendly, prompt, and easy to work with when I have any questions or need to change details of my policy."

"The Patrick Marsden State Farm team are absolutely awesome!! Melissa is always so great walking me through the details of a policy so that I understand it in full to make the best informed decisions for myself, and Reilly is so friendly whenever I call the office about anything. They make insurance so pleasant :)"

"Patrick and his State Farm office is not a good neighbor and spoiler alert, they weren’t there. Their idea of customer service is not just disappointing but left me facing a rather large bill covering the cost of an accident. I was told by multiple State Farm reps that Patrick and his team didn’t provide good service. Patrick and his team even admitted as much to me. Yet, when it came time for Patrick and State Farm to truly own their poor communication and service, they decided they’d rather just stick the customer with the bill. It’s shameful. It’s dishonorable. It’s just plain wrong. Quick edit since these folks decided to respond: I called in and did what I was supposed to do. Jennifer didn’t do her job as I instructed her to update my address. Patrick didn’t do his job. Patrick wasn’t a good neighbor. He wasn’t there. Plenty of other agents out there, would suggest not going to this one! Really shameful to not own up to it when multiple people from corporate told me my agent didn’t do a good job! Patrick and Melissa both told me they didn’t do a good job. Sadly, I’m the one stuck with the bill."

"Got car insurance from Patrick, then later got renters insurance. Years later I got homeowners insurance. Every time I shopped for insurance, over two decades, Patrick has been there, been great, and had some of the best coverage at the best rates."

"I've been with Marsden State Farm for about 8 years now. What started as needing to have life insurance for a loan for my business has become having State Farm cover all of my other insurance needs for both personal and business. Patrick and Melissa are both very knowledgeable and experienced (and with Patrick at the helm I wouldn't doubt that all of their other staff are excellent as well). Patrick and Meslissa are easy to talk to and great at communicating policies in a way that makes them easy to understand. I've referred a few people to them and those people have expressed being really happy that they made the switch. It might sound odd one of my favorite businesses in the Madison area is an insurance agent, but for State Farm being a big company with a long history, Marsden State Farm truly feels like a local staple at this point, and I highly recommend them for any insurance needs!"

"As customer for over 12 years now, I continue to be amazed at the lengths Patrick and his staff will go to in order to serve and educate clients. Patrick wants clients to understand options and has great patience in explaining concepts that are foreign to most of us. I always feel like he is a rare businessman who is invariably on the side of the consumer and is proud to work with one of the few "mutual" insurance companies left that are not just profit driven. Many years ago a neighbor and now dear friend said that the words that came to mind to describe Patrick, which whom she had done business for some time, were first integrity and then the trust that such integrity brings. I am so glad I headed that neighbor's advice. Patrick has never pushed products and always given me options--some I would not have been aware of and that have worked greatly to my benefit. He sees a big picture of insurance, financial services, and retirement planning and can help people avoid pitfalls they might not otherwise see. When I needed insurance in another state and State Farm couldn't write the policy, Patrick gave me tools to be an educated consumer--just because he wanted me to be taken care of, even if he got no business from it. Even for simple matters or one policy (how I started doing business with them), they treat their clients with respect, professionalism, and genuine neighborliness. I have many neighbors in downtown Madison who have similar stories about Patrick and his team. I am generally averse to most cliché slogans sung in commercials, but this is an exception: State Farm has truly been there for me--like the very best of neighbors. I simply cannot imagine better and do not have words to express my gratitude or say how highly I recommend Marsden State Farm."

"These are among the most helpful professionals, insurance or otherwise, I've ever had the pleasure of working with. They helped reduce my rates, talk me through life changes and corresponding policy needs, and I cannot recommend them enough."

"Patrick is thorough, consistent, attentive and compassionate. As a customer for 15 years, I was never disappointed or caught off-guard. His team has a handle on the details and always explains things to make sure I understand. Outstanding agent & office!"

"Patrick and Melissa could not have been more helpful! They took a difficult situation and made it easy for us! I've been a long-time customer and after processing my first large claim, I'll never go anywhere else! Thank you!!"

"Patrick, Melissa, and the rest of the team at Patrick Marsden State Farm are absolutely fantastic! They truly care about the services they provide, and more importantly, they care about you. They have consistently gone above and beyond to help me and my family over the years, and are always happy to answer any questions or concerns I may have. If you're stuck with the stereotypical insurance company, or looking for your first insurance agent and team, look no further!"

"I've been a State Farm customer for over 20 years, but never have I been so pleased with an insurance company as I have been with Patrick Marsden's group over the last three of those. Talk about above and beyond! Not only are they professional and customer-oriented, they have felt less like an organization and more like a family during times that have been difficult for everyone. A special callout is owed to Melissa McDermott, who has operated not only as an excellent State Farm representative but who has on more than once generously acted as counselor and confidant. Truly an exceptional person--and outstanding State Farm office. Highly recommend!"

"Great quality work going on here. I was helped by Melissa M. She was most kind and quick to respond. Did all the legwork for me and offered great advice. She is definitely working for the client and does not cut corners. Please ask for Melissa if you want the project accomplished correctly. Thanks again Melissa !"

"This business will always have my endorsement. They were recommended to me by a close friend and I continue to recommend them to others. The staff are always helpful, polite, and knowledgeable. I had heard that Patrick himself was a really helpful/sincere person and, recently, I was able to confirm this. I had called with some concerns about my account and Patrick, who answered the phone call, re-assured me about my concerns and answered my questions. When the call was over, I felt like the weight had lifted from my shoulders. Great big thanks to everyone who works here. Keep up the great work."

"I can't say enough good things about the Patrick Marsden State Farm Agency. Patrick and his whole team are true professionals, and are nice people as well. Because of Covid, all my contact has been over the phone; any time I've called with a question or issue they were easy to contact and responsive to my needs. When I had an auto accident earlier this year (not my fault, thankfully) they made the process of getting the repairs done quick and effortless. Insurance is one of those things you just have to deal with .. Patrick and his team make it much less of a hassle."

"The Marsden State Farm team is incredibly helpful, responsive, and easy to work with. We can tell they have our best interests in mind and don't try to oversell us on unnecessary coverages. Overall a great experience working with this office!"

"I think that unless you have an insurance agent who has their phone contact in your phone, you do not have a relationship with that individual or company. Not only do I have Patrick and his team's number in my phone, but have willingly given it to folks who are looking for a better agent. For home, life, auto there is no better group. They initiate great conversation and always annually follow-up and follow-through to make sure you are getting the very best policy based on your needs. I highly recommend Patrick Marsden State Farm for all of your insurance needs."

"Melissa has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She is able to explain things thoroughly and always answers my questions completely and rapidly. I have used her and Patrick for auto, home and life insurance. They were even able to assist me when it came time to insure my new business. I deal with many insurance agents and company in my profession and no one has been easier and more affordable. I look forward to referring them to all of my clients!"

"The team at this office is wonderful! I’ve had nothing but friendly, professional, and positive interactions in the three years I’ve been insured through them. I appreciate the emphasis placed not only on customer service, but also on education. They have a knack for explaining things in an easy-to-understand way, and I never feel rushed when I call to ask questions. Highly recommend!"
