“CCS has partnered with Rancho Mesa and Sam Brown since 2011.  Sam has been an incredible support to CCS, as we navigate the complexities of risk management and the insurance world.  He ensures we have the most up-to-date information to make informed decisions concerning insurance coverage, while also taking the time to understand the needs and compliance requirements related to our nonprofit organization. 

He and the entire team are patient and professional with the numerous questions and requests we regularly have for them.  We are extremely grateful to have such an amazing team ensuring we have the best possible coverage. Thank you Sam Brown, Claudia Garczewski, and the entire Rancho Mesa team for your outstanding service!”

"What I loved about my experience is Jim didn’t just tell me what needed to be done and then hang up, he instead stayed on the phone with me while we found a medical center for the employee. He let me know what forms I needed to fill out, helped me find them and instructed me on who they would need to go to. He took me through the process step by step, even instructed me on the importance of the employers interview, telling me what questions to ask and how detailed they needed to be. I truly felt like I had a partner! He also took the time to tell me what will need to be done in the next few steps and assured me that if I had any questions, he was there for me.  I loved the customer service."

“We work in an industry where insurance procurement can be a challenge and having a partnership like Rancho Mesa and Kevin Howard really helps. We have seen our experience mod rate drop on a very rapid decline. With our type of work if your XMOD gets over 1.00 you can lose a job so it’s important. We lean on Rancho Mesa quite a bit. Risk management is not what we do. We build things so we love leaning on their expertise."

"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.”

"I would like to give a big thank you for all Vicki Painter does for us every day. There are some days she has gotten 6 or more requests for certificates of insurance for new projects in rapid order, all of which were “rush”. She always completes each COI in a timely manner and even uploads and forwards the rush certificates directly to the General Contractor’s, so we start without delay."

"Friendship Shelter is fortunate in the worker safety arena - we don’t get injured very often. When something does happen, though, it’s a little bit of a scramble. In mid-2017 our maintenance manager was cut on the job operating a circular saw. I got the call and the question – where do I go? “Circular saw”creates a serious mental picture. I called Sam Brown at Rancho Mesa who responded in moments with the Kaiser On-the-Job location nearest  our employee and treatment was rendered soon thereafter. In the end, there was no loss of limb or even lost time, but Rancho Mesa treated it like it was a major incident. That’s the kind of treatment we get no matter what the issue and why we love Rancho Mesa."
