Meet Gillian Smith & Louie Del Monico of The Del Monico Agency
The Del Monico Agency
How many years have you been in business?
4 but a little less than a year with Allstate
What product or service do you offer?
Auto, Home, Life and Business insurance for people in the state of AZ.
What makes your business different, competitive, or unique?
While we work for a large nationwide brand, we still have a boutique feel. We are locally based, owned, and community focused. Our kids go to school in this community and we support local businesses in the East Valley.
What is the nicest thing a customer has ever said about your business?
You made a normally uncomfortable process feel very natural and enjoyable. Shopping for insurance is not fun but your company really took the time to set up a policy that suits my family's needs.
How has your business found value in your membership with the Gilbert Chamber?
We have connected with other business owners who have connected us with people in their networks.
What motivates you professionally?
I am motivated to be great at what I do. I didn't get into this business to be mediocre. I would love to provide a service that benefits the people of AZ at a fair price while providing exemplary customer service.
What do you consider to be your greatest success?
My greatest success in my life is bringing my daughter Gianna into this world. She is the most kind and caring kiddo.
Who do you look up to or admire?
I look up to my parents:
My dad is my mentor and one of my closest friends. He is always positive, lighthearted and steadfast at accomplishing his goals. He is an amazing business professional.
My mom had to start her career after they divorced, and while raising 3 kids, working full time, she went back to school, got her bachelor's degree and had a 4.0. She recently retired and is focusing on being the best nana she can be.
When you're not working, where in Gilbert do you spend your time?
Honestly home. We have 3 kids between my partner and I, and they are 9,11,and 12. We are constantly shuttling them all over, so we value our down time. We love to go to Main Event, Top Golf, and other fun places in Gilbert. One of their favorites is Sals Gilbert Pizza! YUM.
