Aliyah Martinez


Aliyah is no stranger to insurance, as she finished up her teenage years working as a customer service representative in her father's insurance agency. She took on the ropes of something she did not know, nor understand, and learned at a running pace. Fast forward 4-years (2023), Aliyah joined the SIG team and continues to give impeccable customer service in a very demanding and fast-paced atmosphere. Aliyah's willingness to go above and beyond, along with her knowledge of the complicated subject matter of insurance, makes her an absolute asset to this team.

Jonathan Martinez


Born and raised in the small Northern NM town of Las Vegas, Jonathan learned the value of small town friendships. This was indeed useful in building long lasting relationships with clients and referral partners. Having owned a captive insurance agency and discovering the huge limitations within, Jonathan chose to venture out to the much larger and limitless independent insurance world. This has allowed much more opportunities for success in helping his customers with their unique personal and business insurance needs. His years of experience with customer service, insurance industry experience, ability to think creatively and critically, and relationship building make Jonathan an exceptional asset to the team!
