I recently purchased my first car and needed insurance. My friend referred me to The Ostic Group and I am so happy they did. Jessica Dewey was so helpful and went out of her way to get insurance for me, even offering to stay late on a Friday to get the paperwork filled out! Being a first time car owner, I didn't know where to start or what was the best plan for me. Jessica was very informative and made me feel very comfortable throughout the application process. Highly recommend!

I've recently received home & life insurance from The Ostic Group and have been very pleased. I'll be completely open on this review in saying that they are a client of where I work, but this did not sway my decision.Jessica Flanjak and The Ostic Group team were helpful while presenting my options. Jessica made it a simple and delightful process. I feel very good about my decision and will be switching my auto insurance over to The Ostic Group as well.

Our family has been dealing with OSTIC insurance for nearly 35 years. When we had the misfortune of experiencing a car accident a number of years ago, our agent Lisa, was exceptionally courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, and prompt in dealing with our many questions and eventual car replacement. If Lisa doesn’t have a “quick answer” to any of our questions, she is very thorough in her investigation, and usually responds within 24 hours! Hats off to Lisa, and the other wonderful staff, at OSTIC insurance in Guelph.

Been a customer for almost 35 years now (Guess that alone ages me!!)Never a problem with any of the staff really. The odd thing is missed or is incorrect. However, they are quick to fix anything you need.My regular agent went off on maternity if my memory serves me correctly, and lately, I have been working with James. He has gone above and beyond and is relatively quick at resolving inconsistencies.We would and have recommended Ostic to others.Take care everyone at Ostic!R. LOWE
