Our Partners



I work for a contractor and deal with many of the brokers at Smith Petrie Carr & Scott. They are always conscientious about their clients and are very knowledgeable with any questions I may have. I highly recommend them to anyone.


Total professionals through and through. As someone who has previously worked in insurance I can instantly recognize someone who is competent from quote to claim. The value of a good broker is not just their ability to quote from multiple insurers but to take the confusion out of the whole insurance experience.


Thank you again for your amazing and thoughtful assistance. You have made the loss of this family heirloom much less painful.


Wendy, Wendy, Wendy!!! WOW amazing, there is a good reason to use an insurance broker instead of going through the insurance companies directly and Wendy is a perfect example of why! I’ve always been placed first and foremost as a client at SPCS and Wendy has really shown that!

Fantastic work!!! What great customer service A+


I have recently renewed my term life insurance and purchased travel insurance through them and I am so impressed with the exceptional service and the policies they were able to find for me. The premium for the travel insurance is literally at least half as much as the other quotes I got for nearly identical coverage. Marjorie is very attentive, courteous and professional, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. Thank you!!!


They have been taken care of my business from day 1 Liz is to a great deal with if u need something for your business! They get it done!
