Brent Feller

License # 2n10893

The Clear Choice is thrilled to bring a consummate Claims Professional to our team. A home-grown product of Southern California, and the middle child of seven siblings, he has called the Montclair area his home since birth. Instilled with his parents Mid-western values Brent understands the value of fomenting relationships and building trust on a personal level with his clients. Having a tight knit family unit who relied heavily on ingenuity, resourcefulness and most of all, love, prepared Brent to make his mark on the world and helping others. His love of cycling and the natural surroundings of California spurred him to create a junior cycling team helping youths overcome obstacles and teaching life lessons he’ll never forget and was honored to be a part of.

He comes to The Clear Choice after accruing 30 plus years of high-profile insurance industry experience; insurance claims, claims management, property appraisals and proven claims negotiator. The secret to his success is his ability to take a seemingly complicated process and break it down into manageable parts, allowing his clients to feel confident in their trust of his word. He knows firsthand insurance carriers take advantage of their upper hand in claims situations and he wants to level the playing field. The Clear Choice is looking forward into tapping into Brent’s good-natured personality and bringing his confident and empathetic brand of claims management to our firm.

Brent believes helping families is a calling and one he doesn’t take lightly. He is a genuine family man who loves spending time with his parents tinkering in the garage or at the house and breathing in the fresh air of nature around the country with his wife on a bicycle trail. We’re looking to change the way public adjusters interact with unfortunate families who have suffered a fire and Brent Feller is the man. In his own words, “I am not a salesperson, I am a Claims professional. I wouldn’t be able to present a service that I did not wholeheartedly believe in.” And we at The Clear Choice, would not want it any other way.
