Q: You always mention your team concept when talking with your clients what is this concept and how does it work?

A: I have been in the insurance business since 1982, I know what our firm does well for our clients and I know the areas that we don’t get involved in. In today’s world you can’t be an expert in everything, so I have surrounded myself with some of the best professionals in the financial industry to refer our clients to. If you need a business liability policy, I don’t sell them, but I do have an associate that will give you the best price and service in the business. Need someone to review your 401 K plan, we have a relationship with one of the best financial planning firms in the country. Need a second opinion on a tax matter, here again we have a relationship with one of the top CPA firms in the area. So we have become an added value service to our clients who trust our recommendations and referrals.
