Agent Testimonials

Lillian Trevino

Lillian Trevino, Principal of
Tremar Insurance Agency

"Having experienced a captive agency, Pacific Crest provides much more support, expertise, and mentorship than a captive agent gets while providing appointments to write business for dozens of different carriers which means I am able to write 95% + of the risks that I quote.  If you are looking to start an independent insurance agency, start here."

Arredondo Risk Advisors

"Making a profit is the reason I became a business owner. Pacific Crest Services helped me realize all the opportunities I was losing out on as a captive agent. It never seemed to matter how large I grew that agency, I always struggled to turn a profit. Now that I'm partnered with Pacific Crest Services as an independent insurance agent I can capitalize on way more than just personal lines sales and some small commercial."

Celia Richard

Celia Richard, Principal of
Celia Richard Insurance Agency

"Prior to joining the Pacific Crest Services insurance alliance I had always worked for other agents as a Producer or CSR. Taking the leap on my own presented many challenges that I knew I would face. I'm grateful that Pacific Crest Services caters their training and development to each agents needs. This made the transition go much smoother and expedited the learning process so I could start making money right away."

Chunky Nelms

Chunky Nelms, Principal of
Chunky Nelms Insurance Agency

"As a captive State Farm agent I was only able to offer my clients one option. I seldom felt comfortable knowing my clients would be better off with another agent who could offer choice. Pacific Crest Services has solved this issue for me. Their strategic approach has allowed me to become an insurance broker where I can now offer my clients better coverages at better rates with carriers that make my business very profitable".
