Thanks to a vision and taste for adventure, Roger Chaix, Jr. ventured out in 1987 as a one-man operation specializing in unique and unusual risks for agents and brokers in California. In just a few years with his wife Linda by his side, he was adding staff and underwriters with over $7 million in premium volume, earning an exceptional reputation for providing superior service, and contracting with quality admitted & non-admitted markets for independent agents.

R.E. Chaix & Associates continued to grow and more than doubled in size and volume by 2000. Retiring came with a lot of emotions for Roger, but the pride of knowing his son Timothy and two daughters Stephanie and Heather were taking over the family business, made the transition easier.

The company added an office in Napa, CA in 2003, another in Rancho Cucamonga in 2005, and San Diego in 2009. Today, R. E. Chaix & Associates is surplus licensed in 49 states and D.C. growing premium beyond 50 million all while maintaining their “Family owned, client focused, and service driven” philosophy. Whether you are looking to insure a Main Street America business or a multi-national operation, R.E. Chaix is the one to call for all your wholesale and excess & surplus needs.

Clients can be secure in the knowledge that the company is in good hands and is continuing to add new markets while providing the same level of top quality service they’ve been known for since 1987.
