I’ve known and worked with Chuck for many years and greatly appreciate his knowledge and dedication to the firearms/shooting sports industry.  Service and communication are key in the insurance industry and I can count on Chuck to get back to our team regardless of issue.  His dedication to the industry with innovative programs has been key in allowing me to better serve my clients.

“Went from not knowing who SAGE Program Underwriters was, to binding my first account inside a month. That’s faster than some of my in-house markets. Quoting was easy, and underwriting questions were actually relevant. Firearms is an obviously tough class of business, but Chuck knows the industry well, and was able to provide reasonable terms, and do it efficiently.”

~ Tim B., Insurance Broker
