They’ve said about Theresa’s work
I have been working with Theresa Prios-Jewell for all of my marine insurance needs for over 7 years. Her knowledge in this area is exceptional. She has been an incredible resource with both coverage’s and markets. Most recently she provided us with a quote so competitive it saved our insured over $8,000 in premium and provided our client with increased limits. In turn, our client gave us the opportunity to quote and write their other lines of coverage.
I have worked with Theresa for over 15 years and have always been very satisfied with the service I have received.. Theresa and her staff are very efficient, knowledgeable, and go they extra mile to find a solution
