Stephanie Beninati


Stephanie Beninati is the Broker/Owner of Strategic Insurance Services and has been assisting the Construction and Real Estate Community with their insurance and warranty needs since the late 90's.

Stephanie lives in Denver with her husband, Michael Beninati. They also have a home at Lake of the Ozarks, MO where she also has a license to sell insurance. In fact, SIS is licensed in 26 states and writes all types of hard to place risk.
