"I would recommend Brian Sullivan, (avail insurance brokerage) to handle homeowner's(and other) insurance. Rather than strictly phone service, Brian is local, will come to your home, will look you in the eye, and will give you straightforward answers - to as many questions as you have. He'll also come back and review your coverage needs every year. Avail Insurance is a good choice."
"We chose Brian Sullivan as our insurance agent because he is reliable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Brian was patient with us and took the time to understand our insurance needs. We are very fortunate to be working with Brian."
"I've always bought insurance from a company agent, rather than an independent broker, but I met the principle broker at Avail through my daughter's school. Just out of curiosity I asked him to see what options I might have for my home/auto/ubrella policies. He came back with strong options from 2 companies for me to compare with my current coverage. Both were cheaper and offered better coverage than I had, and he walked me through all the considerations.
He handled all of the transition issues and made the whole process quite smooth. He's been quite available to answer my questions and not at all pushing anything. He says he'll recheck my policies for better options each year, which is something you definitely don't get with an agent tied to one company. I would definitely recommend Avail."
