Best Customer Service

“I've been paying auto-insurance for 12 years and this is the first year I used a broker. Wow! What a difference, I saved on both home and auto. The entire Phil Leon staff is wonderful. There was a lot I didn't know about commercial insurance policies. As a contractor you have enough to worry about, so when someone sincerely wants to help you it's very refreshing. During my initial appointment I made a joke that nobody really loves their insurance company. The reply I got was 'perhaps, but you can be in love with your insurance broker'. Best customer service, I think I'm in love!”
