    I own an agency in California and write mostly commercial insurance. I wanted to bring on personal lines insurance to accommodate my existing clients so I went with Networked and Superior Access. I'm finding it difficult to do business with either of them when it comes to service and competitive quoting. How do I get in touch with Pacific Insurance Alliance and do they write in CA? I would also like other avenues of getting to the personal lines markets without having direct appointments. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I would go to PIB it is another cluster, however it is cheaper than NIA and you get on line access to all the carriers. Contact Kirby Wells at 916/ 635-6760 Tell him Debbie A had you call. Kirby is on the board of PIB.

    Try Partners Specialty Group...they have offices in CA, and can handle personal and commercial lines countrywide, as well as internationally, so might be worth a call...

    You may also wish to call them just to use them as a resource...I've found they are very helpful and not afraid to point you in the right direction and offer advice...
