This week The Tribune-Review announced the winners of their annual TRIBLive Best of the Best Awards.

We are thrilled to share that our principal agent, Kate Dawson, was a finalist – ranking in the Top 3 Best Insurance Agents in Westmoreland and Allegheny County East.  This is an incredible achievement, as the contest counted 207,707 votes for this year’s Community Choice Awards.  The Best of the Best Awards celebrate and recognize the best the community has to offer. 

This year marks the third consecutive year that Kate won recognition in the Best of the Best Awards.  Last year she won Best Insurance Agent in Westmoreland County and in 2020 she placed in the Top 3

This year Kate expanded her reach in the contest as she ranked in the Top 3 Best Insurance Agents in Allegheny County East in addition to Westmoreland County.
