Joseph Giardina: Taking the Stress and Confusion out of Insurance

Most people see the world of insurance as a sea of numbers, paperwork, and industry jargon. What they often don’t see is the work agents do to help people be prepared for a disaster and to recover when one inevitably strikes. The president of North Castle Insurance Agency in Armonk-North Castle, New York, Joseph Giardina is one such agent who knows that insurance and the service he provides can mean the difference between a recovery that is relatively easy and one that is difficult.

Joseph Giardina explains that he saw what life insurance in particular can do for a family when the unexpected happens. “My brother and I shared a building in which I occupied the storefront while he operated his construction company in the back. One day, I talked with one of his employees, who had four children. He was a family man and lived a modest life. I had a tough conversation with him about what would become of his family if something ever happened to him. He listened and agreed that a life insurance policy was the smart thing to have. I sold him a 20-year, $500,000 term policy.”

Sadly, only two years later, the man had a tragic accident and died instantly. “When I attended his wake, I gave his widow a check for $500,000. Although the money would never bring her husband back, she did have financial security, which was badly needed in such a time of sorrow. I have always believed that he decided to put his family first the day he purchased that life insurance policy from me,” Joseph Giardina says.

For twenty years, Joseph Giardina has been advising clients on how – and why – to choose the best insurance policies for their needs. “I like to think I help people make decisions that will benefit themselves and their families,” Joseph Giardina says. “I meet people at pivotal times of their lives. Some are excited about buying their first home but unsure how to protect their investment. Some are teens who just got a car and are learning the responsibilities that come with it. Others are buying life insurance for their families. No matter the situation, my team and I sit down with each client and help them be sure they know exactly what they are purchasing.”

Life insurance is one of the top three policies that Joe’s clients buy. “It’s a very wise decision,” he says, “because while we would all like to live forever, none of us will. What will happen to your loved ones if the worst happens? This is especially important if you are the primary breadwinner or have children, as that story proves.”

If the key to a new home brings the purchaser excitement, then homeowners insurance brings peace of mind. “A home – be it a condo, a house, an RV, or a trailer – is such an enormous investment and responsibility that no one should be without homeowners insurance,” says Joe. “The policies do, unfortunately, contain a lot of complex terms that can make anyone’s eyes cross. Never be afraid to ask us questions at North Castle Insurance Agency. We will do everything we can to help you have a thorough understanding of what you’re purchasing.”

Additionally, North Castle Insurance Agency offers expertly managed insurance policies for car, umbrella liability, boats/yachts, commercial property, workers’ compensation, and business automobile. “We are a full-service insurance agency for individuals, businesses, and families,” states Joseph Giardina. “We can help you purchase a reliable, reasonably priced policy that fits your situation.”
