“As an association professional, I am very confident in the things I need to do to run a successful organization. However, when it comes to insurance, I too must turn to a professional. That’s why for over 13 years I have turned to Dare Insurance Agency for all of our insurance needs. Anytime I have a question or concern about anything related to insurance for my associations, they are the first place I go and they are always willing to go above and beyond.”

““I just wanted to say Thank you so much for all the help I have received from your company with my car insurance. Not only did you save me money, but you also worked with me to get the best coverage for my mom. You took the time to explain the coverage to me so that I understood what I was receiving. Your staff is very friendly and just as helpful. I look forward to doing business with you for many years to come.””

““I have known the Dares, Steve and Steph, for over 20 years – meeting Steve at an early industry Insurance Seminar for Non-Profits. Steve was immediately impressive, informative, and forthright. I quickly engaged their firm for total insurance support and have not looked back since. Steve, Steph, and Team never fail to go the limit with consultation and research to help my National Association in our risk awareness and protection. We could not ask for better partners.””

““Dare Insurance has been BFA's insurance provider for many years. Over the years, Steve and Stephanie Dare Torrez (and their team) have always been easily accessible and very dependable. Anytime we have a policy question or need to file a claim, they are right there, ready and willing to give their time and expertise. Everyone knows that insurance coverage can be complicated and hard to understand. The team at Dare Insurance explains our coverage in a way that is simple and easy to understand, while also giving their advice on any gaps in coverage that they may see for our organization. We truly value and appreciate the level of service, expertise and friendship that we have gotten from the Dare Insurance Company for many, many years!””

They will go above and beyond anytime of the day, night or weekend. I couldn't ask for a better group of people, always eager to go the extra mile and get the lowest possible price for insurance.
