Hi, I’m Margaret and I’m the owner of Galezano Insurance. We serve Southwest Florida in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota Counties as well as the Tampa Bay Area. I’ve worked in the insurance industry for over 20 years and I love what I do. It’s an honor to know I’m helping people stay protected in their homes and businesses, while also helping them save money.
Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I’ve been in Southwest Florida since 2001. Florida is known as one of the more challenging states to write insurance, but I enjoy the challenge. I’ve helped people through hurricanes and natural disasters, and it’s the best feeling to know I made sure they had the right coverage. Each client I work with is unique, and that’s what makes it fun and interesting.
Galezano is not a cookie cutter insurance agency. We customize according to what your needs are. While many insurance agents will just get a license and offer coverage, I believe in going above and beyond. I continually stay up-to-date in my field through ongoing education. By doing this, I am able to offer my clients the highest quality coverage at the most competitive price.
In this day and age, it’s too easy to get low-cost DIY insurance. Many people go online and a faceless website spits out a number. This is a big risk that often ends up hurting the customer.
That’s what I’m here for. A lot of what I do is looking over policies. I provide second opinions at no charge. More often than not, people choose to go with me as their agent because I find holes in the policy quotes they were given. I show them what I can do to make sure they have the most comprehensive coverage, at a competitive price.
In both my work and my personal life, I follow these values:
Integrity: Doing the right thing is important to me, even if no one is looking. When a disaster strikes, my clients don’t care about what we talked about when I helped them get coverage, they just care about what they have right now. It’s such a good feeling when I know my clients took my advice and are taken care of.
Honesty: If it doesn’t look like it’s the best idea for someone to make a change to their policy, I will always do what’s best for the client. Also, I often help my clients understand different terms that can be confusing.
Reliability: I am someone people can count on. That’s a big deal to me. I always put myself in the place of the client and it’s never 9-5, it’s start to finish. Whatever they need, I am going to service my clients.
When you come to me, I am always looking out for your best interests. I understand that people need an advocate to help them through the process, and that’s what I do. Whether you’re renting, in a new home, or in a home that’s 30 years or older, I use my many years of experience to get you the right coverage and the best policy. I also provide many other types of insurance.
These are the coverage areas I focus on:
Home and renters insurance
Probate and performance bonds for companies
Commercial business insurance
Galezano Insurance sponsors the military museum hometown hero project.
I am also a Member of BNI (Business Network International), and a member of The Florida Association of Insurance Agents.
I love the diversity of Florida and that I have clients that are local born and raised as well as international. It’s so much fun getting to know different types of people from all over the world.
When not working, my favorite hobbies are boating with my husband and two daughters or spending time with our 3 dogs, 2 of whom are rescued.
