I would highly recommend Pat for your insurance needs. He is methodical, and has a well structured approach to search for the most appropriate option that works best for your needs. I was impressed with his professionalism and fund of knowledge relating to his field. I especially respect his honesty, when he was not able to help me in some of my unusual questions. In addition, his assistant, Veronica, makes the overall process easier and more efficient. Her professionalism and kindness was evident since our first phone encounter. I would strongly recommend this company for all of your insurance needs.
