Lisa Newman - Inszone Insurance Senior Personal Insurance Specialist

Lisa Newman is a Senior Personal Insurance Specialist at Inszone Insurance Services, joining Inszone in July 2021 after the merger with Interstate Benefits & Casualty Insurance Services. Lisa began her career in 2006 when she was hired as the agency’s bookkeeper and in 2009, she became a licensed agent specializing in home and auto.

Lisa’s bookkeeping skills naturally transferred her into the policy service part of being an agent. Communication, listening, and attention to detail are her keys to success, and the experience she received has made all the difference to her as she continues to serve her customers as well as her community at large.

Lisa has been a resident of Nevada County since 1989 and has been involved in many community groups. Currently she is the co-founder of the Newman Memorial Foundation which was founded after the loss of her two sons, Ryan and Brett. The Newman Foundation provides scholarships to assist young adults in her community to defray the costs of their first year in college.

On her off time, she enjoys spending time with her grandson, Finn, being a homemaker, serving at her church, making Sunday dinner, crafting, and reading.

I’d like to recognize Lisa Newman for her recent exceptional service.

I was reading my insurance policies and noticed some unusual wording dealing with exclusions, as Steve Keeney had changed our insurance policies from Kemper into Mercury. I reached out to Lisa for clarification and she promptly contacted the Mercury underwriters for for information. Although unusual, the reasoning kinda makes some sense. I truly appreciate her assistance, research and prompt replies. She deserves recognition..

Lisa at at Inszone Insurance Services has been nothing but fantastic. She was an invaluable help with a major claim from storm damage, and has recently helped us get coverage after we had our original policy “non renewed” after the company decided not to cover our area. She has gone above and beyond, even went out of her way to take the required photos of our home when we were out of town. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We have a vacation home in a high fire area which was insured with State Fund with a renewal that was exorbitant. We were concerned about finding new coverage. I randomly called Inszone office, spoke with Lisa. She understood our needs and concerns. She went above and beyond to find new coverage for us. Handled all the details seamlessly and professionally. She was definitely answered prayer for us !

Lisa has provided me with exceptional service from day 1. Even a year later, Lisa has proactively reached out to me about my renewal. She made sure the renewal was sent to my mortgagee and paid on time. I didn’t have to do anything accept communicate what mail I had received. I feel well taken care of. Lisa is my go to person. Highly recommended!

Lisa was so helpful in resolving an issue with a prior insurance co that we’d cancelled but hadn’t received a refund from. It took a almost a year to complete the research. But the refund came and she kept us up to date with progress until it finally resolved.

She also unraveled the mystery of why we had two identical PUP policies and which one was the right one to keep.

Lisa was awesome! I called about getting homeowners insurance and after chatting with Lisa, she said she would get back to me later in the day with options. Not 5 minutes later did I receive an email with the perfect policy for us. Lisa was very professional, yet personable and easy to talk to. She was extremely informative and answered all my questions. Lisa is now my insurance person!

Lisa is without a doubt the most knowledgeable, professional, honest insurance agent I have ever worked with. When we were hit with an enormous increase in our Cal Fire Plan insurance, she helped us navigate through our policy and we were able to reduce our premium by almost 25%. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an approachable, professional person to deal with the insurance world today.

Lisa took me as a client after the death of Steve Keeney, who had been my agent for 30 years and died in 2023, much too soon.

She has given me excellent service, including last week with arranging for my auto insurance for a car I purchased. She got me the insurance on the very first day of ownership! Thank you, Lisa!

Lisa is The Best! I have been working with her for our homeowners insurance for over 5 yrs. now & she is always right on top of things & is amazing at communicating/follow up/resolving when necessary. When our policy was cancelled a few yrs back she found us another co. right away & the premium was even less than what we had been paying! Then a few months ago Lisa called me to let me know I may be getting another cancellation notice & after a few f/u calls during the week, she walked me through what to do so our policy would not be cancelled. I was SO appreciative for the heads up b/c I would’ve panicked if I received that notice in the mail, she saved me a lot of undue stress, Thank You Lisa! 🙂

I recommend her to everyone!
