My husband and I recently moved to Florida from out of state. We'd both been with the same insurance company since before marriage, over 25 years each to date. Unfortunately, all aspects of the move (homeowners, auto, property, and a new construction) proved beyond difficult for our company, to the point we started looking for a new provider. Shapiro came highly recommended by a neighbor and we were not disappointed. Unlike other companies we investigated, Jessica Coop with Shapiro responded immediately. Without the promise of future business, she provided a quote for our new home that the bank required. We decided to take it a step further and met with her to discuss transferring our business. She was on a mission, searching for the best packages for all our individual needs, while ensuring she was keeping us at the protection and service level to which we'd become accustomed with the other company. She was very frank about each cost vs. benefit decision. She has continued to help us navigate our coverage throughout the construction process. We have never felt so secure with our insurance portfolio and are grateful for her expertise and professionalism!
