    John & Trish take the time to understand our business which gives us confidence we are spending our insurance dollars wisely. In a difficult to insure industry we feel that they present our case fairly to ensure the best outcome for our business. John & Trish have given us many years of canny advice and exceptional service and I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
    David Johnson

    I have worked with John and many of his clients and found him to be a very dedicated insurance broker who is focused on the needs of his clients. I can without hesitation recommend John to anyone who is looking for an insurance broker that has your interests at heart.
    Professor Allan Manning
    Managing Director, LMI Group - https://www.lmigroup.io/services/claims/our-experts/
    Insurance is a significant expense to my business, and I need expert advice to get the cover required to protect my properties.  I hate spending money on insurance because you cannot see where it went.  A little while ago my wife crashed into my car causing a lot of damage to both vehicles.  That is the time when even a scrooge like me must thank Trish and John for their professionalism.  One call to Trish and the claims went like clockwork.
    Jim Lamb
    Managing Director, PPH Developments Pty Ltd
    Having worked directly with John for the last 4 years I cannot recommend him more highly, his insurance knowledge, ability to communicate and manage relationships is second to none.
