Meet Your Agent: Blaire and Lori Benzing
You might notice a slight resemblance between our last agent and our current one; that’s because this is the identical twin and his wife, Lori! These two, however, live on the other side of the state lines from Blaine, and represent Goldberg Bail Bonds across the state of Iowa. When they aren’t driving to get someone out, they are working on their farm or with their young ones, who love picking up the phone with headquarter’s calls (future Goldberg Agents for sure!).
Question and Answer with our Iowa Agents
Q: Where is the best place to eat before court?
A: We live in Waseca County, so we’ll focus on the courts there. The best place to eat in town is either Mulligans or Gus + Tony’s. Either place you go, order the special. It’s always amazing.
Q: Hidden Gem near to the courthouse?
A: Fishing or boating on the Mississippi. People think of Iowa as just corn fields, but we have corn fields and a little bit of water… just to keep thinks interesting ; )
Q: How close do you live to the jail?
A: In Waseca, next door. In Iowa, it depends on where we have to go, but we go anywhere and everywhere in Iowa.
Q: What’s the average release time for defendants?
A: In most of Iowa, the defendant is usually released instantly. It’s only in bigger cities we’ve ever had to wait.
Q: Do you have any tips for clients in court in Waseca County?
A: There is no specific start or end time. Show up early, bring a cell phone charger, and plan on staying a while.
Q: What is your favorite part of bail bonds?
A: We get to meet so many different people. In itself, that’s cool. But hearing someone’s voice and then meeting them in person— the difference is crazy! No one is ever exactly what I expected.
