Our Team is led by Steven B. Sobel, a 50-year veteran of the insurance industry who understands insurance on a level that few insurance professionals do. Our team has over 130 years combined experience working in urban and rural areas of Canada. First and foremost we are licensed Public Adjusters devoted to advocating for the Public. Having adjusted billions of dollars of claims over the years, you won’t find a team as well-respected and trusted in our industry as Sobel Adjusting.
In 1965 Steve began his insurance career and is the only local Insurance Adjuster to hold a Staff, Independent, and Public Adjuster position in Canada. In addition to holding Chairman, President, and CEO roles at adjusting firms in the community, Steve was also elected President of the Ontario Insurance Adjusters Association. His undisputed reputation for excellence led to training insurance professionals through local colleges and Sobel Samson Insurance Management Corporation. By 2005, he had already owned and operated five successful businesses in the insurance industry employing as many as 50 people at a time. But Steve noticed an increasing number of Canadians unhappy with their claims experience. He listened to their complaints of unfair settlements and took a bold, unprecedented step; He “switched sides”. Steve began Sobel Adjusting Solutions Inc. and has only advocated for the Insured ever since.
After graduating from The University of Western Ontario and fascinated by his father’s career, Brandon began working directly under Steve at Sobel Adamsons Clements Insurance Adjusters Limited in 1997. He quickly learned how to manage and control claims investigations and eventually streamlined the company’s claims documentation and submission processes. Brandon eventually was drawn back to claims adjusting and is the first person to ever complete CIP certificiation as a Public Adjuster through the Insurance Institute of Canada. He is also the first person to be fully licensed by FSCO as a Public Adjuster without holding a previous license.
Brandon’s undying devotion and passion is to provide a voice for the policyholder and ensure the Public is fairly represented during a property loss claim.
