“Marg was always a long time respectful friend with whom I did not have business dealings with. All of my insurance requirements were already committed to others who were serving our interests very well. The opportunity came for one of my businesses to seek a new broker. Without hesitation I approached Marg and have never deviated. From day one she genuinely made me comfortable, saved me money and many years later continues to have my best interests at heart both from a business perspective and as a friend! Highly recommend Marg!”
