    review rating 5  I posted this on yelp as well, because I am feeling pretty grateful for all the help I get from Mike and Chamberlain Insurance. Mike has been available whenever I call, and a huge help with some of the complications involved in a business that has expanded its services over the past couple of years. I started a business from the ground up, and have been fumbling my way through it, and it has been great to have a resource like Chamberlain to help me stay legal, and on top of things, while answering all of my questions.

    review rating 5  I have been with Chamberlain Insurance for over 20 years. Always with both home and auto insurance and yes even Earthquake Insurance. When my husband died, the policy needed changing. There were no problems, only a smooth transaction. Through the year's others have tried to persuade me to change to a cheaper rate with several different company's. Some rates were cheaper, but it isn't always what's cheaper that counts. It is what you will be getting for your money. Comparable Rates, Honest Service, Professional Counsel and help to get your policy to fit you, not any Insurance Co. We now have 3 generations with Chamberlain. My Motto is: Try them, If it doesn't work out, you have only met wonderful people who are making it an easier way to shop for insurance.
