Testimonials about Michael W. Platts

Boca Raton - Hurricane

"My contacts with Mike were frequent and comprehensive. He not only dealt with my homeowners insurance (Southern Life), but their public adjuster (Totura) and my Condo association (Boca Lakes). I was always consulted as to my wishes and was most appreciative of Mike's wise counsel. He not only was my "adjuster", but also my loss "consultant" and his input was invaluable."
