Our Team

Meet your local insurance experts.

The Harborside Insurance team cares about you like you’re family. As the owner of the hometown agency, I couldn’t have it any other way. We love what we do, but we understand that insurance may be something many people would rather not have to buy. That’s why we have a goal to provide a great and enjoyable insurance experience. While insurance may not top your list of favorite purchases, we believe you can still enjoy the people you’re buying it from! Our business is built on the promises-a commitment we make to all of our customers and prospects. As a local business owner and life-long resident, I stand behind this promise. When you see my team live out this promise, or if we happen to miss the mark, I want to know. Email me at rich@harborside-financial.com.

  • Treat you like a member of our family. With that in mind, we will always try to find the right coverage at the right price (and we won’t fight at the holidays LOL).
  • We make sure that your coverage suits your individual needs.
  • We DO NOT right state minimum liability coverages! If you speak with our team they will educate you on coverage’s and why state minimums are a joke, you don’t want them you just don’t know it yet. If we can’t enlighten you and you still insist on state minimums you have the wrong agency.
  • What’s right is right, and that’s that!. We will battle adjusters, insurance companies, body shops whatever it takes to assure our insurance family members are treated right I have brought insurance companies to small claims for my client’s, and never lost a case (crazy right).
  • Here is the flip side of that coin. If I believe that our clients are trying to defraud the insurance company I will go above and beyond to help the insurance company deny the claim. I am a pit bull for my client when they are wronged, I use the same tenacity when I think there is fraud.
  • I promise we are not perfect and will miss the mark. Mistakes happen it’s how you respond to them that makes the difference.

When we have made an error we will take responsibility for it (we never play the blame game) and correct it. · If we do not meet or exceed your service expectations we will apologize, then do everything we can to correct your issue. In addition, we will make the appropriate adjustment to limit future errors so that we exceed your expectations. I have owned and operated my own insurance agency since August of 1985.
