    Brett is GREAT... always looks out for my best interests.
  • Rating 5.0
    Rich and his office group worked with us to manage the transition to the CA Fair Plan and a DIC policy. Not terribly financially attractive, but Brett was creative and offered options that helped make it more acceptable. While disappointed with Farmers’ decision to non-renew, we felt comfortable supporting local business people, even under these circumstances.

    I didn't have any interaction with Richard Votaw. Since my property insurance was cancelled, agent Brett Binneweg has been very helpful and attentive to my situation and infused his personal knowledge and experience to customize the new coverage package. I commend him for his hard work during these difficult times. The office assistant also was very polite and responsive to me. I was considering switching to another carrier, but chose to stay with this office because to this experience.

    Efficient and accurate the first time. Able to bring me onboard as a new customer, switch me out of another Agent and policy in one day. Great attention to details. Pricing was at the low end of the market today.

  • Rating 5.0
    Our experience with Rich was very positive. He was a real advocate in our pursuit of homeowner's insurance when several of the insurance agencies in the area put us on the back burner. He made us feel we were important clients and an intregal part of the community. He never failed to answer the questions and pursue the details that enabled us to put together an insurance package that was more than satisfactory.
