“I want everyone to walk away feeling inspired, and empowered, to make a difference for our clients.

When it comes to interacting with others, my favourite quote is my mantra:

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou

My goal is to nurture the continuous development of a positive atmosphere, with an emphasis on teamwork. This ultimately creates an exceptional experience for our clientele, which fosters trust, and confidence in the fact that we have given them the right advice that is tailored to their needs.”

My goal is to ensure that clients are empowered with education about their coverages, and that we are always presenting the finest options and service. As a Broker and Underwriter, it’s important to me to put our clients’ interests first, so that they walk away with full confidence in the fact that the coverage we recommend is right for their particular set of needs.” 

Lia Burgess

It’s important to me that they’re happy with the outcome of any situation, and that they feel like I’ve given them personalized care by finding them the right coverages at the best possible rates. Our clients are important to us; and I want them to know that we will do what it takes to make them feel comfortable with their purchase of insurance through our brokerage.” 

Nadine Yassen

Being detail-oriented, empathetic, and an active listener are just some of the attributes that make Nadine a dedicated personal lines executive broker. 

 “I always keep the clients’ best interests in mind, by putting myself directly in their shoes. It’s essential to understand where clients are coming from, and to hear them out. Clients may call me when they are upset or nervous – and my goal is to ensure that they feel better at the end of our conversation, knowing that their needs will be met. While the problems clients encounter day to day may be similar, everyone is different – and their perspectives are unique. Listening and understanding is very important to me, because this allows me to give them the best personalized service possible.” 

Domenic Lacquaniti

After 15 years in sales and customer service, Domenic takes a proactive, detail-oriented approach to staying up to speed with the latest products that become available for clientele.

With so many options in an ever-changing industry, it’s important to have a robust selection of insurance companies to choose from, in order to find the most competitive premiums. 

 I want everyone to walk away knowing that they have the best rates, plus the right coverages in place; and I want to develop on ongoing relationship with clients, in order to earn their trust as an advisor who is continuously looking out for their best interests.”

I want to establish relationships with them that are so comfortable, they feel encouraged to get in touch with me any time, with any questions they may have. I have an extremely high standard for service, which I apply to everything I do for each client. My intention is to pluck out the seemingly overwhelming, boring, or intimidating parts of insurance by empowering clients with knowledge about their policies that can make them feel confident in their coverage.”
