Why Cornerstone?

The market for Florida homeowners insurance, auto insurance, watercraft, rv etc has extreme rate and coverage option challenges unique to Florida. Many of the common brand carriers have left the state, raised premiums to an unaffordable level or reduced coverage to a point that too many exposures are not properly covered.

Cornerstone does not do business with every carrier looking to swoop in and make a quick buck. “I look for carriers with the proven ability to pay claims, do what is right by policy holders and be there should the big one hit,” says Josh Butts, owner.

“We partner with companies having years of experience in Florida specifically or with highly experienced management teams and ideally both,” Butts said. We specialize in building a package of coverage and protection around the active and sometimes complex scenarios lived out everyday by our clients.

Cornerstone Insurance is a proud member of the Florida Association of Insurance Agents, the Trusted Choice Insurance Network and an Accredited Member of the Better Business Bureau. The agency focuses exclusively on personal lines of insurance and takes pride in custom fitting a policy for the needs and desires of each client.

Cornerstone Insurance Inc. was recommended to me by a family who retired after owning multiple successful insurance agencies throughout Florida. Cornerstone lived up to their recommendation and exceeded my expectations. As a layperson when it comes to matters like homeowner's insurance, Licensed Agent 2-20, Ileana Zumbado, was nothing short of... exceptional. She was professional in all senses of the word. She was incredibly knowledgable, patient and thorough in answering my rather rudimentary questions, and displayed exceptional follow-up and follow through. Our current policy was set to expire shortly and with a hectic work week I lost track of the fast approaching, looming expiration date. Ileana contacted me just to remind me of the deadline - not just to promote purchasing a policy through Cornerstone. That kind of customer service is something I seldom experience - especially in a field as complicated and competitive as insurance. I did seek other quotes from other companies, just for comparison, and no other company was able to offer me anything comparable to Cornerstone.Their detailed, personal attentiveness is unrivaled. Cornerstone Insurance, furthered by agents like Ileana Zumbado, has earned my highest esteem. I will never search for another insurance company again. Ileana's commitment and competence demonstrated that they are an extremely reliable and reputable company, deserving of my utmost trust and continued business. Thank you to all of Cornerstone, and especially Ileana, for your tremendous assistance and undeniable expertise.read more

As I was shopping around for a better rate on homeowners insurance I contacted Cornerstone Insurance. Kelly began searching for policies that were similar to my current one, but at a better rate. Within a day she presented me with several options. I now have a better policy with a lower premium. The staff was most helpful and professional. I would... certainly use them again.read more

Kelley is an extremely good agent. A real pleasure to talk to as good customer service seems to be a thing of the past lately. She was very patient and knowledgeable when explaining the policy I was interested in. She had answers to most of my questions right away and got back to me very quickly with any other concerns I might have had. She was a... pleasure to talk to and I felt like I knew her for years. An excellent agent.read more
