About the Firm

Shelton BuilidingWhy is Shelton Insurance different? We sincerely care about you, the policy holder, and do whatever it takes to make sure you’re happy with your insurance. Yes, we know it’s cliché to say, “We’re unique because we’re so nice,” but hey! When it’s true, it’s true! Come talk with us and you’ll see for yourself.

We specialize in benefits for Individuals, Families, and Employers. We also work with individuals, whether self-employed, working only part time, unemployed, or working for employers who do not offer benefits.

With more than fifty years of business-to-consumer insurance expertise between our agents, Shelton Insurance has seen it all. Describe your needs to us and we’ll know right away which insurance options will ease your mind and make your life better. That’s what it’s all about, after all; helping you gain confidence by getting you covered.

We’re not all talk. Shelton Insurance has become one of the Top 5 agencies in California and has excelled nationally as one of the Top 28 agencies in the United States in the employee benefits business. We were voted one of the 2015 Businesses of the Year by the San Benito County Chamber of Commerce. And when you consider that Anthem Blue Cross, one of our many featured insurance providers, has ranked Shelton Insurance in the top one hundred of over 32,000 insurance brokers for more than twenty-five consecutive years, it becomes clear that we are no ordinary insurance agency.

Even though we have received high acclaim by our peers, your needs are always the ultimate consideration. No award or recognition will ever make us feel as good as a positive story from our valued customers. That includes our neighbors as well. We hold our community as a high priority and support many local non-profits as a gesture to say, “You know what, this is bigger than Shelton Insurance. It’s about family and bringing integrity to a place where little exists – the business world.”

So, come talk with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members. We’re always ready to assist and guide you with your insurance needs. Shelton Insurance is not owned by any insurance company; therefore, we provide objective information to consumers and small business owners. YOU and your family’s security matter to us, not a paycheck or pat on the back.
