Mark S. said, "Angie Borberg presented a great 10 minute presentation to our group.  We learned some great things about Gap Insurance and also homes that might not be occupied, and their special insurance needs.  I just happened to have a client in need of special insurance such as this after the passing of his father and being responsible for the home.  Her presentation was very timely and I felt very confident my client would be in good hands giving out the referral to her and her office."
