It was the first time I worked with Gilbert Insurance. I was running against the clock to have a Homeowner insurance for the condo I was purchasing and needed the documentation ASAP to me my lender's approval process deadline. Carmelina Bernazani was very helpful, interacted directly with the lender so that all the bank requirements regarding the insurance coverage could be fulfilled and she met all deadlines. She left no open door in the process and in the end I got all that I needed and for an affordable price.

Unlike most insurance agencies Gilbert Insurance actually tries to meet your needs while saving you money. They are quick to respond and very pleasant to work with. They are willing to give you multiple options that allow you to make the final decision.

Working with David was a pleasure. He explained in details what insurance covers and the options available to us. He assisted me in filling out all the paperwork that was very extensive. In the business things get out of hand and you forget things, David made sure to follow up with me and delivered by specified date. The whole process was a breeze!

I highly recommend Gilbert Insurance Agency. We are a small business. When I have a question about my insurance, I don't want to go through a maze of options on the phone, when you call Gilbert Insurance your call will be answered by a person who will direct your call to a person who is knowable about your question. My company appreciates the prompt response from each and every Gilbert employee. "We are very happy customer of Gilbert Insurance Agency!!

Initial experience has been very positive. David Gilbert found me a great price (33% under what I’d been paying for the same coverage) and arranged for policy to take effect quickly and efficiently.
