"The Thomson-Gordon Group has partnered with Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers since 2010 and has been dealing with Beth Pace to manage our account during this time.

I met Beth about 4 years ago when I joined the Thompson-Gordon Group team and was immediately impressed with both her understanding of our business and knowledge of the possible insurance solutions that would meet our growing needs. I was pleased to learn that a full risk assessment was done during the switch from our previous broker and additional coverages were put in place to fill gaps in our existing coverage. Recently, Beth has been working with underwriters to tighten our coverage even further to accommodate our expanding range of customer solutions.

With each renewal, Beth is extremely diligent in ensuring that we receive maximum value for our money and I trust that she works in the best interest of the company. I would not hesitate to recommmend Beth as she is a skilled insurance professional."

"I first met Beth Pace when she came to our office to solicit our Product liability Insurance business. At that time I was impressed with her professionalism and her broad knowledge of the insurance industry. She made no promises, but I was pleasantly surprised that she was able to save us a considerable amount of money on our Product Liability Insurance policy. She is a very conscientious individual and is a great asset to her company, Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers. She communicates well and understands many of your insurance needs even the ones that you had never thought of. I was so impressed with her that I have passed along quite a bit of our insurance business. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like an honest, matter of fact insurance agent."

"We came on board with Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers in 2008

Katherine & Don have been very efficient and they complete all tasks in a very timely and professional manner.

As well they have remained very competitive, where our premiums and coverage's are concerned, and although we have put our Insurance needs out to market, no-one to date has given us a good reason to leave.

We have enjoyed our relationship with Katherine & Don and the company they represent.

We are also very pleased, with the personalized service given to us, considering all the technology in the work place, they are always there to answer our calls."

"My name is Andrew Nicholas and I am the operating partner of Nimble Transportation & Warehousing Services Inc.

In August of 2008 we changed our insurance carrier to Dan Lawrie Insurance Broker Ltd.

Katherine and Don took over our Fleet and Property Insurance policies and we have not looked back since.

Not only did they save us, but have provided us with more comprehensive coverage and protection.

If I have questions - They answer them.

If I need immediate service - They are there.

When we have had claims, Katherine and Don have professionally looked after us to our satisfaction.

In this day and age it is refreshing to find suppliers that offer sage advice and prompt service with a personal touch.

I genuinely recommend this Dynamic Duo."

"We are reviewing our present life insurance policies. Compliments were in abundance regarding the two Ldn Whole life policies you structured for me in the mid 1980s. In addition you recommended the best investment I ever made in my life. In 1985 when Kristin was born, you suggested a 25K Whole life policy in her name. Premium was (still is) $20.00 monthly. You sold me on it stating the gov't would pay the premium (the baby bonus cheque we got back when). This policy's death benefit has increased to 91K (after 27 yrs) through dividends purchasing additional coverage. It is and will continue to be a great legacy for Kristin moving forward. I know I thanked you back then but some 27 years later, I want to say THANK YOU again."

"Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers and their agents made the process of buying my first Errors and Omissions policy easy. Angela was and still is my trusted knowledgeable insurance advisor. She has shepherded me through a number of years and renewals. Questions are answered immediately and assistance is quickly given. My practice has gone through a period of strong growth that has been made much more relaxing by Angela and the knowledge that we are fully and properly covered in this more and more litigious Canada."

"As a company we have dealt with Dan Lawrie for over 20 years and personally I have worked with Debbie Gowsell for a couple of years now. In all my meetings with Dan Lawrie's staff and principals I have always felt the importance they gave, the high level of services they delivered and personal attention that was given to our business.

I have especially found Debbie Gowsell to be very efficient in her work. She understands our business and its requirements. The way she takes care of our insurance requirements and fights for lower premiums while not compromising with the level of coverage, I always feel as if Debbie actually works for Branthaven Homes. If we had any suggestions to improve service or enhance coverage Debbie makes sure they were either implemented or an alternative was suggested which would be acceptable to both parties.

We look forward to working many more years with Dan Lawrie Insurance and with Debbie."

We feel secure knowing that Debbie and Dan Lawrie Insurance is watching out for our business risks and look forward to continuing to build our relationship with her."

"We were contacted by Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers in November, 2010 to introduce themselves and inform us of their involvement with the Master Insulators Association. We were invited by them to review our current insurance policies and see if any improvement could be implemented.

Both my business partner and myself were impressed with Margaret Lavallee and the presentation she gave us. She was well prepared and had done her homework pertaining to our specific industry.

Margaret was able to thoroughly review our policy and her recommendations enable us to improve our coverage to where we feel it will row with us and our ever-changing needs. We now have comprehensive coverage and saved money in the process.

Margaret and the Dan Lawrie team have continued their level of excellence and we are looking forward to a continued relationship with them."

"I was with another Financial Advisor for over 15 years and it wasn't until the last few years that I noticed my advisor did not call me to review my portfolio with me. I found that very disturbing and when I called them for an update - they told me everything was fine with my finances. With the economy the way it was - I found that a little bit hard to believe. So I decided to get a second opinion and that is when I went to Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers Ltd. Rene Papin reviewed my financial situation and needless to say it was a good thing that he did. If things were to continue with my previous advisor, all of my savings would have been depeleted within the next 4 to 5 years. I was very happy with Rene's expertise and he took care of my financial situation very professionally. I now have a strategy in place that will help my financial situation maintain growth for many more years to come. Thank you Rene and thank you Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers Ltd."

"Bob, I just want to formally say thank you again for the extraordinary service you provided us last Saturday in facilitating the insurance so my daughter and her husband could pick up their car. Since they were here from Barrie, having to wait till Monday would have been a real problem. The extra effort that you took was very much appreciated and they were thrilled to be able to return home with their new car. I always knew that your philosophy of business was to provide good customer service, but this was certainly an instance where you went far beyond that. Thanks again."

"This letter confirm that Tim Wade of Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers and Mark McCormick of AGS have managed our Employee Benefit Program, Pension Plan and US Employee Program for several years. We could not be happier with our arrangement. We are fully confident that we are receiving the best possible service at the best possible price. All parties are constantly seeking ways to reduce our costs and cover our liability exposures. Their services are quick and professional and they are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of insurance and pension. I would highly recommend these insurance providers for your Benefit Pension and US coverage needs."

"I wanted to take a moment to recognize and thank your associate Lee Vardy, for the work he does on our behalf concerning our group benefit plan. Our association with Lee began in 1999. Since that time he has made many recommendations to meet our changing needs. Our workforce has grown substantially to 100 employees. His ideas have helped us design a benefit plan that meets our needs and those of our employees. The ASO plan design he implemented has saved us money and limited our risk. I was also very impressed with his creative approach to a “Defined Contribution” health and dental policy. Once again, it is a pleasure to work with Lee. We look forward to continuing our relationship with him and your office."

"I just wanted to pass on a very grateful thank you to Ann Marie Coombe for all her help with our insurance needs of the past. Our business is one of many changes and we have the need for a one on one contact. Ann Marie has proven to be always on top of our ever changing vehicle needs. Our company delivery vehicles can change every few months and the insurance can be overwhelming and get quite out of control in no time. We are constantly calling to make amendments to our policies and needs. She always responds right away with a clear understanding of our concerns. Ann Marie has always given us the personal attention we require, with the care to look out for our needs and at the same time stay very professional and approachable."

"Last February, I called Dan Lawrie Insurance for the first time. Although my home and auto insurance would not be due until June, Cathy Phimister had nothing but time for me. She took the time to run several scenarios with various insurance companies to ensure that my family's insurance needs would not only be met but would be as cost effective as possible. When I called again in April, all of my information was right there waiting and she remembered me like an old friend.
After years of less than desirable customer service, it has been a real pleasure dealing with the staff of Dan Lawrie Insurance."
