I found this company because I was having issues with Farmers Insurance. I live in California and Farmers threatened cancellation of my policy. I was in a panic as we had limited time, I was out of state and remote, Farmers was uncooperative and I was getting zero support from my existing insurance agent.
I went on google and found Matthews Insurance purely from a google search , where they had five stars. I was a little concerned when I saw a 1 star rating on Yelp, but anyways, I decided to call as I needed options, and fast.
I spoke with Eric Matthews, who is probably one of the nicest and most patient people on the planet. I was also out of state at that moment when I called, traveling..... and between cancelled flights and airport drama, trying to get my application in with Eric while at the airport terminal. Add the issue of my then-insurance and roof repair issues and claims, I'm sure I was a handful! However, Eric was cool as a cucumber and extremely professional!!
Eric gave me very candid advice, after our convo, that I truly needed to do a full roof replacement to stay insurable. My issue was I needed a reliable roofer (I was out of state!!) and I needed short term financing. Well? Eric not only referred me his own roofer but also the roofer who had done work for his brother!!! He mobilized his own network to get me help. Truly, that was going above and beyond.
I ended having a truly seamless experience with the roofer and subsequently, it was so easy to transition the insurance to Eric Matthews and Safeco. Additionally, Eric was been extremely responsive to all my concerns. I send an email? He replies. I call? He answers and/or returns calls very promptly.
I felt like Eric brings back old school traditional, excellent customer service. Super thrilled to have found him!! I recommend to anyone to do business with him. I'm not an easy person to please as I have high standards, but Eric meets every standard, and more.
And by the way, I believe he told me he was also in the service. ( I interviewed him on his credentials.) Maybe that's the root cause of the disciplined approach and the work ethic.
And sir, thank you for your service!!!!
Five stars for Matthews Insurance Group!!!!!!
