Habitat Insurance Reviews
I want to take this opportunity to recognize Grace Catao’s professionalism. I was very impressed with her hard work in getting us a $1,000,000 bond. Thoroughly pleased with the excellent job she did for us. It was a very pleasant experience dealing with her all the way through. It is my immense pleasure to recommend Grace Catao from Habitat Insurance.
I highly recommend Grace Catao and Habitat Insurance. For all the years that I’ve been buying and selling real estate, Grace has been the most efficient broker that I’ve ever dealt with. Aside from just dealing with house insurance, Grace has assisted me in other situations, special including event insurance. Whatever I need for my family and my house. Grace is my go to broker.
It’s been great dealing with Habitat Insurance. Both Grace and Richard have gone far above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we got the coverage we needed for a variety of things. They’ve spent tons of extra hours helping us and are great to deal with. I’d recommend that everyone use them!
I strongly recommend Habitat to both individuals and businesses. They have successfully established themselves in the market in a very professional and efficient way. I must add that the services they provide are not only absolutely reliable but also very organized. I have the highest confidence in the Habitat team.
I live in Victoria, but Grace provides the best basic coverage for my little 3 unit residential strata. She is always on top of things, efficient, patient, and professional, and I have absolute confidence in her.
Grace and the team at Habitat Insurance have looked after my personal insurance, my business insurance needs and my clients’ insurance needs for nearly five years. They have provided exceptional service at very reasonable rates. Three key points about the service and product quality have stood out for me: comprehensive advice about the products, same day coverage in emergency cases when required by my clients, and extreme flexibility in terms of product delivery.
As a Financial Planner, I know how important it is to have the “right insurance coverage”, which is why I recommend Grace at Habitat Insurance to all my clients for their home, business and car insurance needs. She provides thoughtful, intelligent, efficient and personal service and usually finds my clients better coverage at a lesser rate then they are currently paying. She loves to help, give her a call.
Grace at Habitat Insurance Agencies helped me when I was looking for tenant’s insurance policy that could do multiple things for me — In addition to contents and liability insurance, I wanted to insure both my violin and my leased business computer. I also had never had property insurance before so didn’t know what was important and what wasn’t. Not only did Grace go to bat for me with the underwriters to get my policy placed but she was also super helpful whenever I called with questions! I have referred her to friends and clients who appreciate her approach as well!
I honestly can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t do better by having Grace at Habitat Insurance on their team. I met Grace about 4 years ago while looking for business insurance (P/L, E&O), and she now handles this, and my personal property and vehicular insurance as well. As someone with a very “particular” and ever-changing business (which could roughly be described as in IT), I was blown away by the dedication and the sheer amount of time that Grace spent on my file. She honestly does treat your business as her own. Grace asks all the right questions in areas I would never have thought of, and as the business continues to grow and change she keeps at it — saving me money here, covering a new risk there… and she does all this with such charm and a super friendly attitude! Value for money you couldn’t possibly do better. Thanks, Grace!
I would like the world to know about a great insurance broker who offers great service, good prices and a keen eye to avoiding problems. As the owner of a home, a car and a business it is my pleasure to tell everyone how effective Grace Catao is as well as her company Habitat Insurance. I first met Grace 4 years ago and asked her to help me with ICBC car insurance. To my delight, Grace got my info quickly and was able to deliver a license plate, stickers and she was kind enough to do it within a few hours. A short time later I bought a home and again, Grace was able to guide me and to explain what was insured and in what circumstances. This was very useful as I live in a strata unit which has different insurance rules then apartment insurance. Two years ago I did not receive the renewal notice from the insurer and Grace contacted me by phone to let me know my insurance was going to expire…thankfully we were able to correct the situation that day thanks to her phone call. I own an IT company (that is responsible for the marketing of this website). Three years ago I asked Grace to help me get business insurance because the two people I had previously asked came back with quotes over $10,000 which was too much for my small company. Grace was able to get me comprehensive business insurance for less then half what I was previously quoted despite that 50% of my clients are US based and Americans tend to be very litigious. Thank you Habitat…Grace, you rock! How do I nominate your company to be named as the best insurance company in Vancouver
I run a 20-person IT consulting company, and one of the things we spend a lot of time doing is reaching out to our clients to insist they have the right systems and backup in place to protect their business, even if they may not feel that is necessary. It can be a tough gig sometimes, convincing people to protect their information when they may not know why. Sort of like your dentist calling to make sure you’re flossing daily. One of the things I love the most about working with Grace at Habitat Insurance is it seems she cares more about protecting my business than I do. Her recommendations are always exactly what we need without fluff, and she is always staying on top of making sure we are protected accurately as we grow the business. And she and her team respond to our requests FAST. I tend to avoid finance/admin type tasks, so it’s great to have someone else call me to check where we’re at and patiently remind me to “send that form I sent you two weeks ago.” Most importantly, she is attentive and helpful in every single interaction, demonstrating a level of caring for our well-being that I think rivals my mother’s. I would not hesitate to recommend her enthusiastically to anyone who needs insurance. We wouldn’t work with anyone else!
Working with Grace at Habitat Insurance has been such a great experience. My business is continually growing and developing which means my insurance needs are always changing. Grace and her team have literally worked around the clock to not only ensure that I am covered but that I am appropriately covered at the lowest possible rate. You will never find another insurance broker as personable and hardworking as Grace.
My house insurance premiums were being increased by previous insurers, and yet I did not have any claims against my insurance, nor are we a high risk factor. I then decided to give Grace at Habitat Insurance a call. From there on, she took control and came up with a plan that would best suit our needs. She advised and helped in every possible way and she was always just a phone call away when I had a question. If she wasn’t available at that minute I called, she would return the call very soon thereafter. She never gave up and found a very suitable insurer for us.
