About Us

Large enough to meet your needs…
small enough to care about them

Why you’ll love an Independent Agency

With a captive agency, you have only one option.  If your rates increase, you’ll have to find another insurance agency that represents a different insurance carrier that offers lower premiums on the coverage you need. From the coverage you can obtain to the rates you pay, your options are limited to those offered by ONE company.

Unlike a ‘captive’ agency, Elite Financial Services isn’t limited to offering the insurance products of one company. This limited approach simply doesn’t benefit the customer. We represent over fifty insurance carriers. That means you have more options to ensure you get EXACTLY the coverage you need at competitive prices. If your rates should increase, we go to work for you.  With Elite Financial Services, you have the freedom of choice.

Why you’ll love Elite Financial Services

As a family oriented agency, the buck stops here. That means when you have a question or concern, we’re the people you’ll contact. We won’t refer you to some corporate office across the country. Our family knows what good customer service should look like and we make sure the companies we deal with share our passion for personal service and commitment to excellence. If you’re not satisfied, we’re not doing our job.

A Personal Letter From Our Founder

“From my first day in this industry I’ve never felt like this was just a career and I’m continually thankful for every opportunity to be of service to my clients. It’s always been about building relationships so we could fill a particular need. My passion for family drives the way we do business and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

We spend time listening so we can help you protect the things that matter most. It’s how I treat my family…and it’s how our family treats yours.”
