Tim is outstanding! He has the answer to any and all questions. He knows things about insurance that you couldn't possibly find out on your own. There are so many loopholes and details that we were not aware of that had a big impact on our decision. Tim made everything make sense. He spent a very long time on the phone with me, tirelessly answering my questions without any hesitation or shortness. Then he proceeded to call covered california on our behalf... If you have ever called there, you know the wait time is HOURS. It was a pleasure working with Tim and I would highly recommend him for ANY of your insurance needs. I would give him ten stars if it were an option and I am a picky customer.
