What our customers are saying

Fairway Farms Condominium Association

It is my pleasure to recommend to your attention Ryan Osborn. Eight years ago, our Condominium Association embarked on selecting a new insurance agent that most appropriately matched our needs and would provide our Association with a comprehensive selection of insurance products and services. As one can undoubtedly imagine, we had the opportunity to deal with numerous insurance companies. After much review and critical examination, we selected the top four insurance companies to present their product.

In the end, we selected Ryan’s company as our choice for providing insurance coverage for our Condominium community. This selection however, was not made easily and without much serious consideration for one other company. So why did our Board of Directors ultimately prefer Coldbrook Insurance Group over the other insurance companies? The deciding factor was the agent, Ryan Osborn.

From the very first contact with Mr. Osborn, it was apparent he had exceptional ability to relate with the people he would be working with. All of the Board members were impressed with Ryan’s attitude of putting the needs of the client first. Over the past years, Ryan has exhibited a professionalism and dedication in answering questions, providing services, and accommodating any need or concern our Association might have. His extraordinary vitality, conscientiousness, and sincerity has impressed us most.

Throughout our relationship with Mr. Osborn, we have always been provided with great customer service. We are able to get a hold of him when we need him He has always provided a timely response to inquiries and is always available to answer our questions regarding our purchased policy.

In closing, we are most pleased in announcing that Mr. Ryan Osborn is a very fine representative and a tribute to his organization. We have procured the services of a true professional, dedicated to the full commitment of his energies and capabilities.

Experienced, trustworthy, loyal, friendly are just some of the words I would use to describe Pam Osborn and her team.  I have been in business since 1996 and have been using the Coldbrook Insurance Team since the beginning.  We are so blessed to work with her company and we do not consider her team as a contractor but as a partner in our business.  They always make themselves available to answer all of our questions and if the need arises for them to attend ameeting they do it at the customers schedule, whether is late at night or even a holiday weekend.  When you need insurance you want to feel secure the company you are using has the experience to make sure you have the proper coverage but will also be there at the time of lose, you have that with the Coldbrook Insurance Team.
