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.
