Clients say...

Excellent staff and they take the time to shop the best rate possible.

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.

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.

Great team to work with. When we changed from a city focused insurer they were helpful in finding the right company for rural needs.

Of all the professionals I lean on in my day-to-day operation, Newman Insurance ranks up there with my attorney, accountant and banker as a key advisor.
