I have decided to go independent and started a new company called Insurance Professionals of Arizona. I will still provide home / auto / life and other forms of insurance, but I will now have the ability to quote multiple companies and search for the lowest rate for my clients.
Again, thank you to all who have supported me and trusted me as your insurance agent. It has made a big difference.

In the United States, 2 vehicles are stolen every 60 seconds, or 1 every 26 seconds. That is 1.2 million vehicles stolen every year. What is the cost? It cost you $7.6 billion each year just to pay for what theives steal.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, about one-third of a typical comprehensive auto insurance premium goes to pay for auto theft claims. One-third..that is 33%, a staggering number.
Bottom line is that vehicle theft is a big business for criminals, its not just teens looking for a joy ride.
Protect yourself by doing some of the following.
- Lock your doors
- Remove your keys from the ignition
- Close your windows completely
- Park in well-lit areas
- Consider an alarm or steering wheel lock system
And if you drive one of the following vehicles you really need to be aware. These are the top ten most stolen according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The year of the vehicle is in parenthesis.
