Preston Scheffenacker Properties

Preston Scheffenacker Properties has had the pleasure of working closely with Allegiance Surety over the past three years. They have been our sole source of bonds for over 800,000 square feet of commercial and residential development projects in the central Maryland area. Allegiance is a key team member who has successfully helped our company navigate the complicated real estate entitlement process, and complete our buildings on time and on budget.

Each Allegiance employee with whom I work, delivers on every commitment in a timely and professional manner. Throughout all of our projects, they have established and maintained a clear line of communication and mitigated any issues that might delay the project schedule. They have a deep understanding of the real estate business and the nuances of government processes of each county in their territory. In short, they have been honest, forthright, and attentive to every detail.

I highly recommend Allegiance for any of your bonding needs.

AOC Solutions

I started at my current position in 2009, at that time my company was already working with Insurance Associates and I took over as the POC. Since the first time I met them I was impressed. Carolyn showed up for our first meeting, I am sure with coffee, donuts or both, and was very friendly and approachable and I knew right away this was going to be a great working relationship. She was very down to earth and never made me feel like I was asking stupid questions. Now over 5 years and several benefit changes later the people at Insurance Associates and Carolyn continue to provide me with the service I have come to appreciate. They truly know the insurance industry inside and out.
