“I began dealing with one of the predecessor companies to Stanhope Simpson, then Simpson-Hurst, in the late 1960s. Since that time, Stanhope Simpson has looked after all of the RCR Group of Companies’ insurance needs in all of our varied markets.  I have always found their team to be very service-oriented, conscientious, honest, and always available to answer questions, explain coverage options and give timely advice.  And of course, they have consistently been extremely competitive in every market.  For these reasons, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the commercial team at Stanhope Simpson.”
