We own a residence in Glen Ellen in Sonoma Wine Country. It suffered a total loss and devastating fire damage. We had numerous insurance issues that surprised us. You dealt with them very well.
Again, thank you again for all of your hard work. We will happily recommend you and your firm anytime. Please feel free to utilize us as a reference for your future clients.

I cannot say enough about you and your exceptional team. Thank you for your efforts and diligence in resolving our fire claims in Malibu. I was very impressed by your team’s in-depth knowledge and expertise in the complicated insurance world. Throughout the process you all kept me informed and were available, prompt, and dependable. You and the Sunpoint team definitely went above and beyond the call of duty guaranteeing a fantastic result and I would highly recommend you to anyone requiring your services.

With your Team's determination, fortitude, meticulous attention to detail, insurance experience, and negotiation skills we overcame all obstacles.
I hired an advocate. I gained true friends who were unwavering in commitment in my time of greatest need. So, do yourself a favor and hire Gary and his company immediately following damages that give rise to submitting an insurance claim.

When our custom-built home was damaged by the Woolsey Firestorm, we didn't know who to turn to help us through the recovery process. As a seasoned businessperson and former endurance athlete, I thought I had this process under control. However, I soon realized that insurance and claims are a complex process where we needed professional expertise. At the beginning of the loss ...We were referred to you by our good friend Chris Cortazzo. As it turned out, you and your team were instrumental in our recovery.
We are very satisfied that you kept the insurance company on its toes and facilitated a favorable resolution of all the coverages and benefits that were available under my policy. Our recovery was ultimately almost 7 times the insurer's original offer.
We are grateful for your efforts to take charge of our insurance recovery and engaging a top-notch team to beat the insurer back….I would not recommend anybody to deal with their insurance company on their own without a tenacious public adjuster like yourself and Sunpoint.

I did not know this industry existed until a friend had a massive fire at his home. When my home flooded, he recommended I call. I’m glad I did. They were able to make the insurance company pay me what they owed – 4 times what they were trying to get me to accept! Since then they have represented us on numerous claims around the country for residential claims as well as large commercial centers we own. When we have a problem, I call them before I call the insurance company.

Our Plastic Company burnt to the ground. I thought I would be treated fairly, but “our” insurance company only wanted to pay half of what we lost. These experts came in and within 60 days made the insurance company pay two times what they said we were owed. Thank you for everything!

Thank you and Sunpoint Public Adjusters, Inc. for the excellent work on our fire insurance claim. As you know our beautiful 7000 square foot custom-built home and winery were destroyed in the Sonoma fires of 2017. I am so glad to have met you, Gregg Clifford and the other members of your team early in the process as it was a huge stress reliever to have an advocate like Sunpoint on our side. We dutifully paid our premiums to our insurers for years and were led to believe that our insurance company would treat us fairly when we suffered a loss. After our first few meetings and discussions with the adjuster, we knew the insurance company was going to play games and take as much time as they could to try to reduce what they owed us. We are very glad to have had you on our side.
With your help and perseverance, we were able to recover much more than what the insurance company initially told us they would pay us for our loss. Your team meticulously negotiated the building, contents and loss of use claim. Our payments to Sunpoint Public Adjusters, Inc. at 7.5% on our loss of over 5 million dollars was reasonable compared to the time and effort it took to get the matter settled to our satisfaction. Your work over doubled our offer by the insurance company. Again, thank you for your hard work. I will happily recommend you and your firm anytime!

Dear Tony and Steve,
Rafael and I want to personally thank you for all your hard work to help us with our insurance claim. Before the fire, we had no idea what a public adjuster was. Now that we know what a public adjuster is, and based on the way you handled our claim, we would highly recommend IPA/Sunpoint Public Adjusters to anyone who has a large property claim like ours ... without your help, we never would have been paid the policy limits on our claim for our business personal property. At the same time, the accountant our insurance company hired wanted to low-ball our business income loss. You worked to prove their accountant wrong resulting in a business income settlement over 30% higher than they wanted to pay ... To anyone reading this letter, who has a large property claim in front of them, I strongly recommend that you hire IPA/Sunpoint Public Adjusters.

Dear Masood and Gregg,
We provide this personal reference with our sincere appreciation for all your individual hard work after our hi-end restaurant suffered a fire. We cannot thank you enough for your diligence and assurance to get us through our nightmare with very deliberate and well thought out claims adjustment and negotiations to a very satisfactory resolution. With your efforts we are a thriving business now with restaurants across the US and internationally ... I intend to introduce you and Sunpoint to anyone that suffers a complicated insurance claim. As always, looking forward to seeing you soon.”
Antonio Castillo – Owner
We cannot thank you and SunPoint Public Adjusters, Inc. enough for the hard work your team did on our huge fire insurance claim. The settlement was beyond our expectations and almost double what we thought it would be. Our prized property in Brentwood, California was devastated by a fire. There was a tremendous amount of structural and interior damage. Your reputation and knowledge are impeccable. We were fortunate to have you quarterback our loss to a successful result ... We are glad we were referred to you and retained your services. You navigated the adjusters and insurance consultants like a true expert and forced my insurance company to step up to the plate - you kept them honest. With your tenacity and perseverance, we were able to recover the highest and best value on the structure loss as well as obtain code upgrade and other additional benefits upfront. The fees we paid were worth every dollar in terms of the services and results received. You saved us tremendous time, headaches, effort, and were by our side every step of the way. There is no way we could have negotiated the fantastic settlement you achieved ... Again, thank you for all your hard work. We will happily recommend you and your firm anytime. Please feel free to utilize us as a reference for future clients.

Through a friend we were referred to you and the SunPoint Public Adjusters team. Since this was our first experience with an insurance claim of this magnitude, we relied on your guidance and expertise throughout the process.
After we were able to survey the damage (most of it smoke), we knew we were out of our element. This would be a timely task that requires a great level of expertise to manage our claim. It was reassuring to know that we had you on our side working to keep our family’s best interests at the forefront of the claim. Returning our home to a healthy and safe property for our family as our number one priority. You championed that to our insurance company, and we could not be more grateful to you.
I would recommend your organization, without qualification, to the most discerning estate owners. Without your team, I would have had no idea how to navigate what we faced. Your impeccable and professional representation put our family in a position to have our home returned to the state it was in before the damage. You assured us that we would not end up with less than we had before the damage and you came through. SunPoint Public Adjusters is truly the best in the business.
Please accept this letter as my sincere, personal thanks. We are happy to serve as a reference to any potential client who faces the daunting task of dealing with an insurance claim.

Hilary and I cannot thank you enough for the unbelievable result that you obtained for us after the Woolsey Firestorm. We are extremely savvy individuals and have been in medicine and business for years. We thought we had the matter under control. When Travelers offered us about $100,000 for our damages, we knew this was beyond our expertise. There were several large firms that approached us. When we met you, we knew with your legal background and decades in insurance you were the perfect fit. We were spot on.
Myo Aung, M.D.
In my years as a top executive in the entertainment industry, I have negotiated countless transactions in the tens of millions of dollars without hesitation.
When our home and property were damaged by the Woolsey Fire, we thought our insurer would be there to help us in our time of need. I was sadly mistaken. Even though we were premier clients in their "VIP group", the moment we filed our claim we found ourselves in a pitched battle to receive the promised coverage for our extensive damages. I learned that insurance policies and claims are an esoteric world of their own, and that we needed professional representation to help us against our own insurance company. I am glad to have had you and SunPoint as sophisticated experts to combat my insurance company and advocate for our rights. We are extremely grateful and satisfied with the ultimate resolution of our claim.
Hutch Parker - President
We thought that our insurance company was taking care of us. It became apparent that after they brought in consultants to measure the loss, their consultants merely touched the surface of the damages sustained. After a little over a year with no additional progress on our claim, we brought you and your team in to advocate on our behalf. Within just weeks, your team inspected every area of the entire property and measured the loss properly. You were meticulous in the inspection and with your knowledge of expertise, you knew exactly what to look for with this type of damage.
We are incredibly grateful to have you as our advocate and friend in need. I would recommend you and your company, without quantification, to the most discerning estate owner. Your experience and insurance industry knowledge surpassed my expectations and our claim was handled beyond our satisfaction. Your expertise in settling our claim with the insurance company resulted in an increase of 392% of our original insurance settlement.
Again, thank you and SunPoint for the outstanding results. I will happily recommend you and SunPoint to anyone who has to go through the torture of dealing with an insurance company. Please feel free to utilize me as a personal, positive reference for your future clients.
Frankie Valli - Santa Monica, CA
With your expertise and insurance industry knowledge, our claim was handled beyond our satisfaction. Your interaction with the adjusters resulted in a very favorable resolution. Your fees were extremely reasonable. We think everyone with an insurance claim must have you and Sunpoint Public Adjusters, Inc. on their side when dealing with an insurance company. Again, thank you for everything. We will happily recommend you and your firm anytime.

We were devastated when San Francisco City Hall Flooded from the 4th floor to the basement during the filming of Bicentennial Man. Luckily I knew Gregg. His team came in and navigated everything from the emergency work, to ultimate repairs, took charge of the Insurance companies for both us and Walt Disney and made sure everyone was made whole. When another building had a fire a year later, we knew who to call. Thank you!
Kerry Painter, Manager – San Francisco City Hall
Thank you and your team of experts for a great job on our insurance claim. We are so glad we to have met with you and other members of your team after our family home was devastated by the Woolsey Firestorm in 2018. Being an attorney, I have dealt with many complex legal and business issues in my career. Relatively quickly in the process, we realized that the insurance company was going to drag their feet and find ways to reduce the amount owed. With your help, we leveled the playing field and fought to obtain our limits of coverage so we could rebuild our property. I am glad we retained your services to advocate on our behalf, as I truly believe we could not have made it through successfully without you ... The insurance company hired an army of consultants including a construction consultant, a hygienist, a testing company, an engineering firm, and a restoration company, all with the goal of minimizing what was owed to us. You were able to go toe-to-toe with all their various consultants and your efforts resulted in an amount more than double of what the insurance company initially offered. The contingency cost of your services was well worth the time, effort, and results you obtained ... Thank you for all your hard work. I will happily recommend you and your firm anytime. Please feel free to utilize me as a reference for future clients.

My family lost our family home in the 2017 October Wine Country Fire, specifically the Tubbs fire which killed 22 people and destroyed approximately 5000 homes in the Santa Rosa area. I was very fortunate to be introduced to Tony and Gregg by a close friend in the weeks after the fire. We were given our absolute maximum payout from the insurance company because of IPA/Sunpoint. There is no doubt in my mind that they are worth many times their fee in terms of what they were able to ensure we received, and just as importantly, in terms of the security and confidence they provided my family during this difficult time. It was a great feeling to know we had an experienced team behind us.

I am happy to serve as a personal reference for the great work and results you got for us when our high-tech machine manufacturing facility burnt to the ground. While we are very proficient in business matters, the insurance arena and claims issues were beyond our expertise. We are happy we had you on our side negotiating with the insurance company for our best interests. We write this letter to you as an expression of our sincere personal thanks for your efforts and the tremendous results ... Please feel free to share my contact information with anybody considering hiring you and Sunpoint.
Herbert Schmidt – CEO, C& H Enterprises
It is with great pleasure that I endorse Gary Johnson and his team at Sunpoint Public Adjusters. At the outset I assumed my insurance carrier was going to protect me, that was not the case. After I met with Gary and the Sunpoint team, I quickly figured out it is not the insurance company’s job to help you make a claim against them, they are working for their own self-interests. As a direct result of Gary’s knowledge, years of experience, and attention to details, we received over 300% more than the amount our insurance company’s independent adjuster informed us we had coverage for. So, do yourself a favor and hire Gary and his company immediately following damages that give rise to submitting an insurance claim.

We write with our most-sincerest thanks to you and Sunpoint Public Adjusters’ team for the dedication and hard work in getting our multiple fire claims at various locations from the Woolsey Fire successfully settled. We had six properties that suffered tremendous damages by the Woolsey Firestorm. They were insured through multiple insurance companies. We knew that we were out of our element and would be taken advantage of by our insurers. We own one of the most successful real estate companies in Malibu, California and our business simply does not allow us to successfully resolve such matters. I have heard horror stories of what insurance companies do to their clients once they have a loss. I learned this to be very true. I thought that having paid my premiums for years they would be by my side, I was wrong! Like so many others, I was referred to and placed our trust in your and Sunpoint’s capable hands.
They brought out many consultants to reduce what was owed. With your determination, fortitude, meticulous attention to detail, and negotiation skills we overcame all obstacles. We could not have done this without you and your team of experts. Your knowledge of construction, careful evaluation of our contents damages, analysis of contractual issues, and accounting acumen helped us recover much more than what was originally offered. You obtained the highest and best result possible. We could not have obtained a higher settlement without your services.
Again, thank you and your team for all your hard work. We will happily recommend you and Sunpoint to anyone who has suffered a residential or commercial loss. Please feel free to utilize us as a great reference for potential clients.

Evelyn Hilton – Palo Alto, CA & The Hamptons, New York
Your team is amazing. The work you did for us when the house flooded was beyond our expectations. The insurance company wanted to simply dry some rooms and turn a blind eye to the damage. You and your team made sure they paid us everything necessary to bring our home and studio back. (Well in excess of seven figures). ... now we have reached out again to help us with insurance issues with the guitar collection. Thank you for everything.
