James Core

For a small company, building great benefits is challenging in at least two ways: it’s hard to get access to the best offerings at good prices, and it’s difficult to find the time to put all the programs in place. Sequoia One solves both the problems at once. You can offer market-leading benefits and do it easily, which lets you stay focused on building your business.

Victoria was awesome. Listened to my issue and went above and beyond to make sure my problem was addressed.


The Client Advocate Team is awesome! It is so great to be able to get quick and direct answers to so many questions around health/retirement and other benefits.


Maya was an excellent advocate and helped me figure out how to navigate the insurance claims system. It is so refreshing to be able to get guidance from a real person!


Amber was prompt, professional, friendly, and detailed in her response. I was impressed and relieved with the level of service I received.


The client advocate team was able to help me with an issue I was having with my insurance when customer service was not able to. They were so courteous and made sure to get my issue resolved super fast, even during holiday times.


Grow your team with 20 more Andrews…the most helpful agent I’ve ever worked with. He knows his stuff and could not have possibly made this experience any better for me. 10 out of 5 stars!!! 


When my issue first came up I thought I’d be on the line with insurance a bunch over the next few weeks. Turns out I just had to send one email to Breanne.


Great service. Usually I get nervous to ask for help via email, but Guiselle made the experience delightful! She responded quickly and her directions were clear and concise. She also followed up to make sure I was all set.


My issue, which I’d dealt with on my own for six months, was resolved within a week with the advocate team. I didn’t have to ask twice. Much gratitude! After this experience, I’d gladly send an email blast advocating this service.


Kat is friendly, resourceful, patience and thorough. I truly am so grateful for her assistance and I don’t know how I would have negotiated my most recent billing issues without her. Emailing her/Sequoia actually feels like magic.


Lizzy made sure that I had the health insurance information that I really needed as a new hire. It was a Friday at the end of her work day and she made sure that I had what I needed.


Melissa was so helpful. She was very quick and responsive to my emails, she continued correspondence with me until my concerns were resolved. I also spoke with her on the phone and she was very attentive. A++ service from Sequoia.


Natty was absolutely fantastic. Each time, they made sure all my issues were solved and even went out of their way for me.


Nicole was quick to respond and incredibly helpful and professional. I found an issue on my newborn’s health insurance at 4 PM and it was fixed before his doctor’s appointment the next morning! Thank you for delivering happiness to this new family!


Elizabeth was incredibly informative…an absolute delight! I have no doubt that even if I had more questions or required more clarification, she would have helped me get to the understanding I sought.
