Pierre and his team have been amazing to deal with. Very open about our insurance, what we require, what we don't. Very easy and straight forward process.

Pierre and the Thrive team are great to work with. I particularly liked how transparent and easy to understand Pierre made everything. The professional approach, excellent communication and ability to listen are among the best I have come across in the industry and backed up with industry leading technology and user interface portal sets Pierre and the Thrive team apart.

Reviewing our insurances with Pierre was a great experience. Pierre has a thorough knowledge of the finer details of insurances, what exactly was covered by which and how to communicate that in layman terms so we could easily understand. Friendly and efficient, Pierre answered all our questions; communicated quickly and specifically; gave us options; made us aware of what was happening in the process and what to expect including timelines; and has done a great job of helping us have peace of mind that what we are insured for is what we want to be insured for. I would thoroughly recommend dealing with him.

Pierreā€™s customer service was outstanding! His service is excellent, he was approachable and knowledgably. He ensured that we fully understood the recommendations and what the implications were if something unforeseen was to happen. As an added benefit they also have a free will service if you take out insurance through Thrive.

I cannot recommend Pierre enough. He laid out the pros and cons for each provider and cover type so we know we are getting the best bang for our bucks. Thanks for making it easy Pierre.

When Pierre first came to my home, it was immediately clear to me that the appointment was purely so that he could introduce himself and his company to me, and to establish what my situation was and understand my risks going forward. Throughout the whole process he made certain I understood that his role was to give me all the advice I needed to make an informed decision in terms of my options and that I understood all of the why's and what for's. All these years, I thought I had it covered but now I know it's not about what deal I can get, but what cover I need.
