Nancy & Bobby Leonard
From day one, Shepherd Insurance has made my brother and me feel like lifelong customers. They’ve helped us manage our insurance needs and costs at both of our restaurants from start to finish. We quickly developed a mutually beneficial relationship, and we look forward to working with Shepherd for years to come.
