The companies we represent are carefully selected to insure they share these values. Let us check your exposures, review your coverages and make recommendations where they’re needed. It’s all about securing your peace of mind and knowing that you are properly insured.

The History of Catalli Insurance Brokers, Inc.

Our founder, Anthony J. Catalli, established Catalli Insurance in 1960, as a service oriented Insurance agency operating out of the home and beginning his sales going door to door.   His roots were of the insurance industry beginning in his 20’s working for Brokerage houses in San Francisco.  He was raised knowing the true meaning of hard work and the agency today is rooted in those principles and values.  In 1974, Anthony’s oldest son Paul Catalli was licensed as an insurance agent and in 1978 another son, Peter Catalli joined the team.  By 2009 the 3rd generation was represented with grandson Tony Catalli joining the business. Although Catalli Insurance was incorporated in 2000, we remain a family owned and operated business. We are all proud to be a part of a legacy of over 50 years and we look forward to serving our customers for a long time to come!

For over 50 years now, Catalli Insurance Brokers has grown to one of the premier family owned insurance agencies in San Mateo. From our modest office in San Mateo, we serve from the San Francisco Bay Area to entire state of California.

Why an Independent Agent?

There is a difference in where you buy your protection. Many people don’t realize there are three sources for insurance:

  1. Captive Agents, who can sell you the insurance of only one company.
  2. Telephone Representatives, who can offer you the insurance of one company, and only on the telephone.
  3. Independent Insurance Agents, who represent a number insurance companies, and research with these firms to find you the best combination of price, coverage and service.

Catalli Insurance, Your Independent Insurance Agent……

  • We’re licensed professionals with strong customer and community ties.
  • We give you excellent service and competitive prices because your agent can access insurance coverage from more than one company and work FOR you!
  • Unlike other agents, we are not beholden to any one company, thus you don’t need to change agencies as your insurance and service needs change.
  • We assist you when you have a claim without call centers, without excessive explanations to multiple people and without wait.
  • We’re your reliable consultant working with you as you determine your needs.
  • We offer you a choice of insurance plans and programs from reliable providers.
  • We work as value seekers who protect your wallet in finding the best combination of price, coverage and service.
  • Catalli Insurance offers one-stop shopping for a full range of products such as home insurance, renters insurance, auto insurance, business insurance and life insurance.
  • We can periodically review your coverage to keep up with your changing insurance needs any time you like.
  • We treat you like a human being not just another number, we see you in the community and have a true investment in your success
