I started bidding projects in 2012. Shawn was my agent from the beginning. Within 3 years I was bidding projects in excess of $10,000,000. Shawn set me on the right path, has kept me there, and I have never been let down by his advice. He has my whole-hearted endorsement.
Surety bonding was a frustrating process until we met Shawn. Shawn immediately made changes on how we reported items to the surety, which had a direct impact. In due course we changed CPA’s. Now obtaining bonds is as easy as requesting insurance certs.
We needed a performance and payment bond for $2.3M. We called Shawn Friday morning. Shawn came to our office that afternoon for a meeting, where we provided him with the bulk of the items he had requested. He worked over the weekend, along with our office manger, to complete the file. By late Tuesday afternoon he had approved the bond. The process went just as he told us it would. Our whole office was very impressed.
I’ve known Shawn for more than 12 years now, and through Shawn I was able to get my first bond. Since then, my company has grown significantly, and I believe he has played a major role in my company’s growth. We are continually growing, and I consider Shawn to be a very important part of my team. Shawn is very knowledgeable, sincere and honest, and I recommend him highly for anyone who has bond needs.
I was introduced to Shawn Blume 4 years ago. My relationship with Shawn has turned out to be one of my most valued business relationships. Before meeting Shawn, bonding was a confusing and frustrating process. I was never able to count on what I had been told by previous surety providers. Shawn has not only provided me with a reliable and consistent source of surety bonds, but he has also increased my single limit bonding capacity by a multiple of 5, while decreasing my reporting requirements. My only regret is that I had not met Shawn much earlier.
Shawn has been our bond agent for 6 years. During this time he has proven to be one of our most trusted business advisors. We can always count on Shawn for meaningful and constructive advice. He has shown a great deal of concern for our business, and for that we are very thankful. Because of his valuable and sincere contributions to our business he has become a good friend as well.
Shawn has been my bond agent since 1994. He has always exceeded my expectations. He is knowledgeable about the construction and surety industry, pleasant, and always available for me and my staff. I am very pleased that he has been one of our team members for so long. He comes with my highest recommendations.
I’m grateful for the exceptional and knowledgeable service Shawn has provided for our company. His expertise in the construction industry enables him to provide excellent support in all aspects of bonding. His fortitude and diligence enables him to resolve issues and provide prompt solutions, which has been a major factor in our company’s success. I know him and I are on a mission together to continue the success of our company.
I sincerely appreciate the exceptional bonding services you provided for us over the last 10 years.

Your ability to problem solve is a great part of our success and it enabled us to grow our business. Thank you for being part of our team.
Shawn has been our bonding agent for 8 years. He has been a true professional from day one. We can count on him daily to offer guidance and advice. His knowledge of both the construction and surety industries is far beyond what we had previously experienced from other agents. Because of this he has become one of our most trusted business advisors and a good friend.
