CIG Redwood Empire Celebrates 30 Years with CIG!

February, 2016

Francesca Smith, Vice President of CIG Redwood Empire Insurance Center LLC announces the agency’s 30 year anniversary serving California property owners as an agent for CIG.

“We are so proud of our long term relationship with CIG,” commented Francesca Smith, Vice President of CIG Redwood Empire Insurance Center LLC on the announcement of the agency’s 30 year association with CIG, a premier regional property and casualty insurance carrier based in Monterey, California.

“When we started our relationship with CIG in 1986, the insurance business and the programs offered were evolving. New value-added features, streamlined underwriting, billing and claims services were beginning to expand to help agents and field staff serve our clients more efficiently and with care. CIG has evolved over the years and so have we, deepening our knowledge and understanding of our clients and their business. CIG has maintained its financial strength and stability with an “A” rating – not just from industry rating services, but also from us!“

McKenzie Smith, President of CIG Redwood Empire Insurance Center LLC added, “When we opened our agency 30 years ago, we knew we wanted to write for CIG. CIG understands property ownership and especially landlord clients with rental income properties. That’s been our ‘sweet spot’ for 30 years and CIG listens to us. We are now helping the next generation of policyholders purchase their first home, first rental property and navigate the insurance process. This longevity is what we’re most proud of and we thank our clients for their trust.“
