“Aaron Geisler is the best agent. Goes way out of his way to serve. Came out to see me personally many times at my convenience. If they took movers again into their policy I’d join.”

“Rebecca Wooden at ALMEA Insurance went beyond to help me and give me solid information about health care insurance at a time when she was incredibly busy and likely would not stand to earn much, if any, financial gain from our discussion. In my interaction with her, she was positive, understanding, patient, encouraging and very pleasant to talk with.
I needed to find a health insurance plan through The Marketplace; a friend in New Orleans connected me with his insurance agent there who sent me a list of Portland area insurance agents from which I chose ALMEA and Rebecca. I liked it that they are a BBB Accredited business. Their website is easy to follow and has links to good articles and information about the ACA.
It was nearing the end of the day on Jan. 30, an incredibly busy time for health insurance agents as the deadline for enrollment in the ACA was Jan. 31. I didn’t really know how Rebecca might help me but it was very much worth the call. She understood right away that I cannot afford a stand-alone insurance policy and that I needed the tax subsidy I’d get through the ACA. Rebecca took time to explain the important differences between policies, such as how to compare co-pays/co-insurance, deductibles and premiums and gave me good insight about insurance providers in Oregon. Even while she didn’t stand to gain much financially, if at all, Rebecca was generous with her time and expertise. While we were on the phone, she needed to take a call from a client who was in distress. I could tell that she cared about that client. We got off the phone and she took the call. And Rebecca called me right back to continue our conversation until she felt that I had the information I needed to make a smart choice for health insurance. She asked that I let her know that I made it through the plan selection process without difficulty. Later in the evening, I emailed Rebecca with the good news that I felt secure in my plan choice based on our discussion that afternoon. She wrote back quickly, was glad to hear from me and once again, positive, and supportive.
I would call on Rebecca again if/when my health insurance needs change.”

Thanks!”

“Working with Jessica is a pleasure. Her expertise speaks volume to the end result when it comes to helping her clients. Through her dedication, integrity, and persistence she helped me find the right commercial insurance coverage for my business.

“I have been going on 20 years a very satisfied customer of ALMEA Insurance, Inc. Insurance Agency. Approximately 3 years ago I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. I called my personal representative at ALMEA Insurance, Inc.; Carol Von Ahn. She was extremely helpful helping me walk thru the steps filling the claim, meeting with the claims adjuster, having the claims adjuster meeting with the body shop. Carol also gave us updates on the progress of our claim in a timely manner. Another thing about ALMEA Insurance, Inc. my wife and I appreciate is Carol will take time to make your policy more cost effect and get you the coverage you need.”

“I’ve been a customer of ALMEA Insurance, Inc. since 1999 when I opened my first retail location here in Portland. I now have 14 locations and ALMEA Insurance, Inc. has provided excellent service and advice every year. I consider myself a fairly discerning and shrewd businessperson and I can honestly say they have given me no reason to look elsewhere for insurance related services. They are knowledgeable and quick to respond to questions.If they don’t have an answer, they will know where to find that answer. I have recommended them to several other business friends without hesitation.”
John C. President, Vancouver, Washington
“Having worked with ALMEA Insurance, Inc. for many years, I know we couldn’t find a better broker. Their representative have fought for un in several circumstances and have handled a multitude of benefit and commercial insurance issues for our business, including leading our benefit committee through reviews of annual rate changes and coverage decisions. They are always available to answer our many questions, help us with billing, enrollment issues, and negotiation of best coverage and premiums. They assist with our open enrollment meetings, benefit fairs, property valuations and driver management.
They’re a wealth of knowledge regarding much more than medical, dental, and commercial insurance; their experience extends to life insurance, disability, retirement, COBRA, and anything else insurance related. Their professionalism, assistance and genuine concerns for our financial security makes my job much easier. I would hate to direct this area without the benefit of ALMEA Insurance, Inc. as our broker. I would highly recommend their services to any organization.”
Wendy S. MA, SPHR, Director of Human Resources, Portland, Oregon

She responds quickly to my questions and goes above and beyond to offer assistance where ever I need it. She takes time with me to ensure I understand things correctly and I never feel rushed when speaking with her over the phone. Assisting employees with their health benefits is fairly new to me and I am extremely appreciative of Keely bringing me up to speed in all areas concerning benefits. Her warm and friendly nature is valued and appreciated and I would recommend Keely with ALMEA Insurance, Inc. to anyone that is seeking an Account Manager with an Insurance Agency.”

“I have known the ALMEA Insurance, Inc. for close to 20 years. As a very professional organization, they have been able to handle the changing needs of a diverse customer base for three companies I have worked with. While I have primarily dealt with them for health and business insurance needs, their depth of staff and integrity of service provided me the opportunity to recently switch my personal insurance to them as well. It is with confidence I recommend them to you.”
Rod W., General Manager, Portland, Oregon

We appreciate the individual attention ALMEA Insurance, Inc. gives our company. An agent is always readily available, and any questions or concerns are promptly addressed. The company is always looking for better ways to assist their customers. Recently the agency has added on the option of BizAssure, which we have found to be a money saving, valuable resource.

“I just want to thank you for the service that Barbara has provided me through the years. She has tackled all the questions and concerns I have had with information I’ve needed and when necessary has done research to find the answer in a timely manner. She always calls me back promptly. She is consistently knowledgeable, enthusiastic and one of the most gracious people I have ever worked with. I admire and appreciate her and all the effort she has put out on my behalf.
I have found that there are places where I can go to save a few bucks on my home and car insurance, but it wouldn’t be worth it to lose my working relationship with Barbara. She is a valuable resource to both me and ALMEA Insurance, Inc. and she is the absolute reason that I continued to do business with ALMEA Insurance, Inc.. Thank you for her!”
Leslie S., Portland, Oregon
After several attempts over five months to get my insurance company to reissue a check to me, I finally requested the help of my agent, Barbara Achziger, who has always been most helpful. I should have done that months ago. Someone from my insurance company called me yesterday to let me know that, at last, my check was on its way.
Paula Y., Beaverton, Oregon
This is the first time we have had damage to our home and an insurance claim. I was apprehensive but our Kemper claim person, Gary took care of everything and made the process remarkable easy. He is helpful, quick, responsive and calming… Everything you need after a claim.
Darlene D., Hood River, Oregon
By the way, Barb Achziger is a GEM! She spent over an hour on the phone with me today on my homeowner’s policy. Don’t EVER lose her! Thanks for all you do for our family Bill, we appreciate your whole team SO much.
