"The study that Conner Strong & Buckelew performed for Community Realty Management was unbelievable. I have been handling the insurance at CRM for many years and have never seen an insurance agent put forth as much effort to write our business as Conner Strong did. Their technical analysis uncovered serious exposures and deficiencies in the other broker's work that we never knew existed."
"They also studied our contracts and made helpful suggestions on how we might strengthen them to better protect CRM's interests. What surprised me the most was how much they learned about our business in a relatively short period of time. That commitment made all the difference to me as an insurance buyer. When I speak with people at Conner Strong & Buckelew, I know they understand both our business and our insurance coverages."
