We currently insure over 1,400 locations in the Metro NY-NJ area. Our specialization gives us a unique knowledge of the markets and we will shop to find you the best coverage with the best rates available. We are also an independent broker and that means we are committed to service of the highest caliber and unparalleled advocacy on your behalf.
