“I have been a customer of Jules Gaudreau and his fabulous team for well over 20 years. Not only do they handle my personal items; home, autos, health and umbrella, but a myriad of businesses over the years from The InfoCenter Inc to Games2U to my charity Kane’s Krusade. Without a shadow of a doubt, they have the most talented people in the business. Jules and Maureen are always available to consult on my many ideas, offer advice including the ‘what are you thinking?’ and willing to design plans to protect the ideas that survive the vetting process.
The homeowners and auto have gotten a workout in the last years due to acts of nature, and whether a business or personal policy, Sandy, Michelle, Kathy and Patti take care of what’s broken and remind me of things that are due or well, overdue, to be done. Andy handles referrals I send over for commercial properties, and they handle all the referrals I send over for renters insurance for the so-called dangerous dogs that my charity serves.
Daryl took care of my health insurance needs when I needed a change immediately, and Danny and Mark are as talented financial wizards that exist anywhere.
In short, they are amazing, they make sure my needs are taken care of, and they are as much family and friends as they are my trusted source for all things insurance.” -Paul from Feeding Hills
