Manuel started in the insurance industry as a”gopher” for an independent agency located in Chino CA in 1998 and was with that same agency until it sold in 2008. He quickly realized what the insurance industry can offer a young go-getter and believed he had the right attitude and skills the industry was looking for. It was during that time he learned the business of insurance, underwriting and the importance of carrier relationships. In his early days of being an independent agent/broker, Manuel sold personal lines Auto & Home policies. He understood that being independent meant he worked on behalf of the client’s who trusted him to place the best available coverage at the best price.
As his career grew, so did his knowledge of insurance products, coverage, exclusions, and terms. He began to sell Commercial Line’s policies including Workers Compensation, General Liability, and Property Insurance. His clients include Trucking Companies, Bail Bond Companies, Staffing Companies, and Contractors just to name a few industries.
When the agency he worked for sold, he started his own agency, So. Cal’s Best Insurance in 2008. Manuel has been married since 2008 and has 2 boys who keep him busy at home. He is an avid sports fan who loves boxing, the Dodgers, and Lakers.
