Customer Testimonials


Erin Sirianni
If you are looking to improve your insurance policies, I’d like to recommend MIPA member Julie King Hately, an independent insurance agent and broker for King Insurance, located on Mercer Island.

We had an excellent experience with Julie. After gathering quotes from different insurance companies, she helped us choose and transition to a new carrier. We now have better coverage and are saving money compared to what we were previously spending. I highly recommend working with Julie:

Allison Durazzi
Writer, Connector, Problem-Solver.
Julie is a fantastic insurance agent! I switched to her after a referral from a mutual friend. She is responsive and thorough. She offers all the options along with considerations, but is happy to provide guidance when asked. She makes herself available to her clients: I was traveling overseas and didn’t have access to my policy. I emailed Julie my question, and she responded almost immediately, despite the time difference. I highly recommend Julie as an insurance agent!

Sandy Turner
Front End Web Developer
During my years as a referral-based loan originator, I was fortunate enough to be referred to her as well. Time and again, Julie found my clients lower premiums. I cannot convey more sincerely the peace of mind I had in sending them her way. She’s a mindful, detailed and overall wonderful agent!

Julie makes the process clear, seamless and will:
– do thorough research
– EXPLAIN coverage policy terms
– show the value in reducing, maintaining or lowering your policy and shop for the lowest rate based on that info
– think short/long term for all scenarios of home, auto and life etc. on a case-by-case basis.
– be HONEST with you about costs/premiums.

In this automated age, Julie’s customer care speaks volumes and I genuinely believe she is a rare gem in an industry that can be overwhelming for consumers. You would be very lucky to call Julie your agent
