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.
Great team to work with. When we changed from a city focused insurer they were helpful in finding the right company for rural needs.
I would like to thank you for sponsoring our hockey team...Your support will open many new opportunities for these young women. Without the support of people like you, we will not be able to reach our goals.
100% satisfied with the brokers here, they were able to give me a better package for a cheaper premium.
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.
