 As a commercial realtor I spend 90% of my time on the road and do not find myself at a desk very often. Having Total Benefit Solutions, Inc. as my broker makes the task simple, fast and to the point. And I never waste time on hold with the insurance company any longer. Thanks again Ed and Total Benefit Solutions Inc!
