Readers: This page includes a list of recommended insurance agents. I have worked with many of them for years, although some are newer to me. All of the agents listed on this page are paid advertisers on the site but have been vetted by me. Prior to November 2015, this vetting process consisted of a review of their website and primarily emailed conversations/questions. Beginning in November 2015, I began requiring an application (see below) that you can review. I appreciate hearing feedback on these advertisers, both good and bad and will remove a recommendation if I receive repeated complaints of poor service.
