Been with them many years and every one a 5 star; this year was a 6 star.

Expect only great service, great people and great advice! Newman is like no other brokerage I have seen. They mean to fill your needs. Not their pockets.

Over the years we have needed to file a couple of claims or just needed questions answered and I never have to talk to the insurance company. Rose does that for us. I would advise against insurance you can purchase online. You are on your own that way.
