Our Approach

Our goal is to create a seamless experience for you, a process that is painless, one that does not create more work for you or your team.

Step 1

Get to Know You & Your Needs

We start by gathering the big picture surrounding your business goals, must-haves, and culture of your company. This is how we understand what’s really important for your business long-term.

Step 2

Learn About Your Employees

We develop a custom benefits strategy that factors in your employee’s specific wants and requirements. This approach directly impacts job satisfaction and reduces turnover rates.

Step 3

Create the Perfect Quote

We conduct an in-depth analysis of all available insurance carriers to find the perfect match. Our goal is to design a cost-effective package that supports your long term business goals while adding value to your employees.

Step 4

Discuss Many Possibilities—Together

The next step is to discuss our findings with you in detail and tailor each coverage to deliver the maximum possible amount of benefits for your staff. We make every penny count!

Step 5

Set Your Coverages in Place

We communicate with your employees to explain all of the new benefits and the investments you’ve made. If needed, we can also serve in an administrator role for some or all of your essentials.

Step 6

Continually Seek Better Options

We stay current with the Insurance industry and many times we can find better plans or better pricing on certain plans for our clients. We bring analysis and recommendations to the table so that we can discuss their options. Our clients rely on us for this.

Deer Hollow helps small businesses

We partner with small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area to provide the same full suite of services, HR support, and outstanding client experience that large corporations receive, but tailor to their unique needs. Our principal, Christine Lacy is the only Small Business Attorney and Health Insurance Broker in Danville, CA. Clients from various industries benefit from our sound advice and years of experience in healthcare compliance and other labor/employee issues. We represent all carriers for medical, dental, vision, group life, FSA, HSA, HRA, short-term disability, and long-term disability insurance.

You’re not on your own

We understand you are in business for yourself, but not by yourself. Our team handles all aspects of plan administration from enrollments, terminations, interaction with carriers, bill reconciliation, claims assistance and yearly Open Enrollment. We’re not your typical “all things, to all clients” employee benefits broker. Deer Hollow Benefits isf an extension of your team, and as a partner we strive to understand and support your unique business, your people, and your mission.

Deer Hollow works for you

At Deer Hollow we understand that unless our clients are satisfied, we are not doing our job. We listen to them to discover their business needs and we create solutions that fit those needs. Deer Hollow Benefits is more than the once-a-year renewal broker. We work with our clients to find more economical plans, and different approaches. We help with other areas outside of our expertise, by referring colleagues that we know and trust. We help our clients stay compliant and out of legal jeopardy, we respond to their questions so they can get back to their business and we embrace technology with online enrollment saving them time.

Chris and her team are great to work with.  Our law firm hired them to provide us with benefits for our employees.  Not only did she save the firm money but she suggested different plans that no other company has ever offered us before.
