  • A very satisfied customer! After my former insurance company again raised my premium on my Homeowners policy, I contacted Donna at Brightway who quickly found several insurance companies to choose from. I now enjoy savings in the neighborhood of over $1,000/year. Thank you! 

    Bruce S, Ponte Vedra 

  • Prompt response, competitive pricing, and ease of applications. Appreciative of both personal and respectful work attitude and obvious experience.

    Sharon B

  • Not only did Jaime identify several coverage inadequacies in my last policy, she was able to correct those while also saving me close to 30%! It is obvious that Brightway prides themselves on their insurance expertise and customer service – I have now referred them to almost all of my friends!
