I found once you get started researching insurance companies in Auckland, then wonder what you need, like life insurance, trauma insurance, business insurance and it all becomes a blur. With Sarah, I was able to share my concerns and get the best deal and care for my family I could ever ask for. Sarah truly has your back.

Thanks so much Sarah for all your help! You made the whole insurance process so easy and I’m much more comfortable  with the cover I have now.

Every time I submit an insurance claim, I honestly thank God for Sarah. In 2016 it was a uneventful box ticking exercise to get insurance required for our mortgage approval and Sarah was highly recommended by some friends. Sarah did not pressure us at all and took us through getting value for our policies if we had to make a claim. I had no idea that there was so much discrepancy between the companies and who would pay for what at claim time, I wrongly assumed all were the same.

Fast forward to 2020 when all the fun went down. When we were still in hospital with Bella she heard what had happened and despite being on maternity leave, she reached out and told me all our entitlements- there was so much I had no idea that we could claim on.

Then we found my brain tumour, and the insurance company was not playing ball with helping me or Bella to get the tests and actions we needed fast enough. Again Sarah helped us get this sorted, despite her not working at that company anymore.

In a world where there are so many people that sell insurance it’s hard to know how to pick someone and whether the policy you are being sold is the best value for money.

I can 100% vouch for Sarah. How she helps her clients when it matters – at claim time – sets her a cut above the rest. Honestly I don’t know how on earth we would have got through the last 3 years without her foresight with setting us up properly in 2016.

If you are wondering if you are getting the best deal, want your policy reviewed or need insurance, I highly recommend booking a consultation with her.
