• “I have worked with Patty Garcia from Wood side Insurance for the past two years.  She was instrumental in finding me Professional Liability Insurance for my small business at a lower price than I had previously paid.  So important for a small business owner!  Patty has always been thorough, detailed, efficient, professional and great to work with.  I was so impressed with her services and attention to detail that we are now working on Health Insurance for my company.  I highly recommend Patty Garcia for all your insurance needs  and hope you enjoy working with her as much as I have.”

  • “I’ve know Patty over 5 years and consider her fair and always ethical in her business dealings. She is well informed, especially about automotive insurance and the challenges of having teen aged drivers. She is very value conscience and will provide a complete picture, including the pros and cons of making a decision. She will give an honest appraisal – I highly recommend her!”

  • “Patty Garcia is all the following - she has the ability to shop the product(insurance) to find the best coverage at the best price, she is extremely professional and also takes the time to explain and educate on the intricacies of one’s policy or policies – what to do and not to do. When I got into a jam with my policy, Patty was there everyday at 7am working to resolve the issue, with updates to keep me in the loop and she had everything under control in 3 days as opposed to nothing resolved in 6 weeks with the previous broker.”
    Go Patty!!!

About Me

My insurance career began in 1992, while located in the Metro Boston area. I established an independent insurance agency, with a specialized focus on auto, home and commercial products. After my relocation to the San Francisco Bay Area, I obtained my California Property & Casualty Broker and Life, Accident & Health Agent licenses.

As a broker at Woodside Insurance Services, I specialize in Property and Casualty insurance. I have access to a wide variety of companies to meet both the personal and commercial needs of my clients. In addition, I have appointment contracts with life and health insurance companies admitted in California. I believe in taking the time to educate my clients, addressing their concerns and needs. My goal is to help them find the product that will provide the best fit at the most competitive rate. By building a relationship with my clients, I can meet their changing insurance needs through the many stages of life.
