“Shane is an absolute gift (although I'm sure you're already aware of that!) I genuinely appreciate the attentiveness, responsiveness, and knowledge he brings to our cause! Shane has been nothing but positive and willing to move forward. He's kept my heart from overworking itself a number of times over the last month! Pure gold, that guy. I can tell I'll be learning so much from him."

“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!”

"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."

"We have worked with Chase Hixson at Rancho Mesa Insurance since 2015 and I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Chase. He has proved himself to be very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. He works hard at securing competitive rates and once the policy is in place the work doesn’t stop there. Throughout the year Chase makes sure that the policies in effect continue to meet the needs of the company. It has been a great pleasure to partner with Chase for our insurance needs."

“Sam Brown elevated the appeal to the highest level when the state workers’ comp board wanted to change our workers’ comp class codes. He researched similar organizations, class definitions, and job duties to make the best possible argument in our favor. I’m certain he will never back down when advocating for Providence. Sam Brown’s careful attention to detail saves us money. The most recent example is an $18,000 error on our Workers’ Compensation audit. Thank you, Sam!”

We greatly value this partnership with Rancho Mesa and their efforts to better our organization.”

"Placing all of Avenue Home Care’s insurance needs with Rancho Mesa has been one of the best decisions for our company! I was completely lost when it came to our insurance needs and response from our previous broker to questions or needs seemed to take days. Chase has educated me regarding our various insurance needs and the Rancho Mesa office is always prompt with replies to an queries or needs. Thank you Chase and Rancho Mesa!"
