Theresa Brennan, Urban Habitat
"Switching insurance companies can seem daunting – after all, in the end it’s always a numbers game. But switching to Rancho Mesa was by far the best and easiest decision I have ever made. There is not one question or concern that Rancho Mesa can’t answer or solve. Insurance is one of those things you don’t need until you do; and Yvonne and Drew have been there every step of the way, to ensure that my employees, assets, clients and company stay protected and covered. Thanks Yvonne and Drew for being more than just my insurance company, but for being part of the Urban Habitat family.”

"We are excited to be a new client of Rancho Mesa! They have hit the ground running with excellence. I have been very impressed with how on top of it they are. They do everything with the utmost professionalism. I am even more thrilled that they were able to close 6 of our claims within the first 3 months."
Natali Navarro, Office Manager, Schnetz Landscape Inc.
“After years of open claims not being resolved and the frustration that I had to personally do all the calling and fighting for results, we decided to switch brokers to Rancho Mesa and see if they were worth it. In the first six months of being with Rancho Mesa 80% of our claims were closed or close to being closed and the remaining ones were finally being worked on and coming to resolution. I’ve since switched landscape companies and when I was told that I was going to be in charge of the insurance policies, I knew that I wanted to bring Rancho Mesa on board with me here, as well, and again they did not disappoint.”
Mark Girard, CEO, Habitat Restoration Sciences, Inc.

In addition, he develops new and relevant safety training/workshops for our industry and he brings competitive pricing to the table each year for our renewal.”
