Brian's customer service goes above and beyond in all aspects. He researched and delivered an excellent quote, providing me with better coverage than my previous insurance provider, and at lower cost. The icing on the cake is his obvious passion about the insurance industry, generously sharing his knowledge and looking after my best interests. Thank you Brian and Team.

I am pleased to say that I have had Brian as my insurance agent for over 20 years. I can't even begin to imagine how many times his service has benefited us. He has saved us a small fortune over the years. Excited that his new office will be closer to us! Thanks for the excellent service buddy!!

I have known Brian for several years and he insures my vehicles and property. His expertise in personal insurance is beyond compare and I am very comfortable knowing shall I have a claim, he and his staff will diligently provide a complete adjudication which gives me peace of mind.

I am thinking of new insurance for my two boats. I asked Brian Ruiz what he could get us but I explained that this was an exploratory question and I was not ready to do this immediately. Brian researched my request and got back to me in 24 hours with two very good quotes despite being busy with storm damage claims. I was impressed with the prompt service, friendly response to my questions and better quotes than I was expecting. I will definitely be doing more business with Brian Ruiz.
