Brava to Mariah Montez for exceptional service! Mariah has always been readily available for all my needs. She is easy to reach (very rare these days), thorough, conscientious and exceptionally attentive. Her warmth and positive attitude makes working with her a pleasure. She follows up with a detailed letter itemizing our exchange. She is a gem!


Jeff is a professional who wants the best for his customers. He is always available to answer questions and works to solve problems promptly. He is a forward thinker who looks out for possible obstacles for his client and provides alternatives to reach the desired goal. He has provided me with more resources to operate a limo business, better communication with his in house staff, as well as his workers comp partner. Jeff and his team at RPP are extremely customer service oriented and provide service beyond expectations.  Jeff is always looking out for the good of his client!

It is easy for me to recommend Carol Daum because of the values she role-modeled. Since 2012, Carol has always always treated me as if I am her “only” customer. When I ask a question, she gives me a timely and accurate answer, thus helping me make quicker decisions. Carol seems easy-going but she is very focused. Whether it is replacing a car, simulating the lowest-cost scenario, or estimating the cost to insure a second home, Carol calmly stepped in and walked me through the most complicated part of the process. Sensing I was in a hurry, Carol quickly rallied the resources of others to help me make a decision, on time. Who wouldn’t want to work with an advisor like that? Make Carol the cornerstone of your next insurance solution. I always recommend Carol to all my families and friends, whenever the opportunity arises.
