  • Thank you for the excellent job you do for my business, my employees, and my family.

    “"I want to thank you for the excellent job you and your team did on my recent fire claim. As you know, the fire we experienced at our property was devastating and the loss much larger than first anticipated. The LBW team stayed on top of the carrier and really pushed to get our claim handled as quickly and effectively as possible. As always, you and your team treated me like a VIP. This is just one more instance that confirms my decision to put both my business and personal insurance with you. More important than the follow-through provided when we experienced our loss, is your team’s continual review of our policies. It was those reviews that made sure we were adequately covered. Thank you also for making me look good in the eyes of the many folks I have referred to you. I know you will always take good care of those I send your way.”
