Insurance is more than just a commodity. Life happens and your insurance coverage needs to keep up with these changing needs. In today’s world of restrictive underwriting guidelines and mounting pressures from insurance carriers to write new business, the service of existing customers often takes a back seat to the acquisition of new customers. You need an agency whose mission begins after the sale has closed.
Business owners and high net worth individuals often have complex needs, and therefore need an agency that will look at things from a global perspective, help them identify personal and business risks, and structure comprehensive, customized solutions to meet these needs. Mission Santa Barbara Insurance Services is that agency. Our business model was established with these customers in mind, and we strive to provide highest quality insurance advisory services and customer service, employing insurance solutions from the best carriers on the market.
Over the past decade, there has been a great deal of consolidation within the independent insurance market, with national firms continually acquiring local independent agencies at a rapid pace in order to create greater economies of scale, cut costs and increase profits. The downside is that service becomes centralized, local representation is replaced with toll free numbers, and often you no longer have a local agent to advise and advocate on your behalf.
Mission Santa Barbara Insurance Services was established to fill the local void left by this consolidation. We are locally owned, operated, and staffed, and we know the community and the market. We can confidently advise you on what is working for other customers in your area or line of business. We are always available to meet face to face, and not only want to know about you, but also about your family and your business.
We understand the value of open communication and good service. We will regularly review your policies and coverages, and regularly shop to find the best and most economical carrier to suit your needs. We also understand the power of word of mouth and good referrals, and pledge to go above and beyond to exceed your expectations so that you can feel confident referring us to family, friends, and business associates.
