“It is my pleasure to highly recommend Lisa Brogan, my favorite Insurance Agent at Glandon Insurance Agency, Inc. I met Lisa six years ago through a client of hers. I was so impressed by her professionalism and personal touch. I became a client of hers for all my personal and business insurance polices. I will continue to have her as my Insurance Agent until she decides to retire (may that day not come for years). I will continue to refer everyone who is looking for any and all types of insurance coverage’s.  And the best part is after they have had the pleasure of meeting and enrolling with her; I always get calls from Lisa and whoever I referred to thanking me for introducing to them. So, I will be the first to say, Lisa Brogan is a fabulous Insurance Agent. She will make sure all your Insurance needs are met by her or by her fellow agents. Lisa Brogan goes above and beyond for her clients, with her professional and personal nature.”

“When you have 60 employees and operate in a thin margin industry you are not big enough to afford a full time HR department or dedicate even a single person. Glandon Insurance helps keep us on track with our Insurance benefits while working as if they are part of the company to answer questions from anyone in the company about those benefits. Without Glandon Insurance we certainly would have a much tougher time in the Health Insurance market managing pricing and all the changes since 2010 as well as taking care of COBRA.”

“Can I just say…the people at Glandon Insurance are by far our favorite people to work with in this ever changing industry. Each and every person you might have the pleasure of working with at Glandon is friendly, courteous, knowledgeable – and helpful, to the nth degree. Over the years, and at this point we’ll reach 13 next month, I’ve become almost dependent on the fact that we can call Glandon, and my buddy Terry will be there to help us. there are very few questions we can ask her that she will not be able to answer immediately, and being the extremely thorough person she is, her answers usually include helpful documentation that we can use in helping our clients – she seems to know what we’ll need WAY before we do. If we do happen to ask an uncommon question, Terry will go above and beyond in her efforts to find the answers we need, and again, there will be information to back up her findings. We know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we can depend on Terry to help us with any problem we might have. As the staff of Glandon Insurance has expanded, and our involvement in the healthcare industry has increased, we can now extend that praise to so many others at Glandon –   Maureen and of course, Mark. Glandon Insurance is definitely Top Shelf, and we’d gladly recommend them for any and all of your Insurance needs!”

“My name is Marianne Kelly and I’m an Independent Life & Health Insurance Broker licensed with over 30 Insurance carriers. Being an Independent Broker with no employees I “need” to depend on other professionals in the business for support. I’m happy to rely on The Glandon Insurance Agency staff for their expertise and continued support.

Mark Glandon and staff are extremely knowledgeable and pleasant at all times. The staff is constantly educated with the latest plan options, improvements or changes which is an invaluable asset. In the rare occasion they don’t know something I’m never left hanging. They will find the information needed. I know they will get back to me with the best answer. Another nice benefit when you call the Glandon Agency, they answer the phone! I’m not listening to almost all top 40 hits or a repetitive recording “someone will be with you shortly.” If you’ve ever been frustrated by calling somewhere for needed information you can appreciate this feature.

In short; they know their jobs and make me feel they truly are about mine. They are selfless and I cannot say enough kind words for this team. I recommend with confidence you put all your eggs in this basket, you will not be disappointed.”

“I enjoy working with Glandon Insurance because of the prompt attention I receive. My latest example is a client who changed his mind 6 times about what coverage he wanted to offer his employees. Each time I presented a plan, he wanted to change either benefits and/or employee eligibility. Glandon Insurance is the most responsive broker with whom I have worked.”

“After 50+ years in the Insurance Business I am virtually retired except for taking care of some long-time clients. Even this would be absolutely impossible without the staff of the Glandon Insurance Agency. I cannon possibly keep up with ever-changing legislation and product offerings, and thanks to the folks at Glandon, I don’t have to. Each and every person is unfailingly pleasant and thorough in providing me with anything and everything I ask for, and they do it at warp speed. It’s like having an executive assistant on-premises.”
