Testimonials

While there are many insurance brokers, there are select few brokers that specialize in surety. Because of its dedicated staff that is focused in this specialized area, Elm is best able to deliver to its contractor clients. Elm is one of Intact's preferred brokers because of its quality of business and its effectiveness in articulating its client’s risks and needs.

Working alongside Elm Insurance during the process of attaining insurance has been such a pleasant experience. Elm insurance worked diligently towards finding out which policy best suited our business’s needs. After an initial consultation the efficient team at ELM Insurance truly had an understanding of our business and quickly provided us with a few options to review. Between their kind customer service, knowledgeable staff and quick response times Elm Insurance is an easy choice for all your insurance needs.

It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with ELM insurance brokers! They always respond to our inquiries in a timely matter, they are always looking out for our best interests, and for the right product to match our needs. We have recently set up our Life Insurance through ELM as well and Matthew was very thorough and took his time to explain all the policy options. Also his recommendations based on experience were very knowledgeable. We totally appreciate the honesty, friendliness and patience the company has shown us. Also the willingness to accommodate to OUR schedule with appointments is very appreciated considering the busy lives we all lead. It is also amazing to see a family business thriving in this world of large corporations. With ELM insurance you aren’t just another policy to them, you are treated importantly and personally!

We currently have multiple insurance policies with ELM, and plan to be customers for life!

We have had the pleasure of working closely with ELM Insurance Brokers since the inception of Trisura in 2006. On a personal level however, I have been doing business with Lou Civichino and his family for over 25 years.

Elm’s hands on approach, dedicated team of experienced and knowledgeable experts and their high ethical and business standards have made them an exceptional partner for both insureds and insurers alike.

Elm is always focused on delivering on their clients’ needs and work tirelessly to facilitate insurance solutions to meet those needs. I strongly endorse and recommend the services of ELM Insurance.

Working with ELM insurance was a great pleasure! My husband and I were looking into insurance for our first home and knew very little about insurance and what was needed. Our broker, Matthew Civichino was very knowledgeable and able to help guide us in choosing the right insurance package to best fit our needs. His explanations and house visits were over and above what I thought buying insurance would be. He truly cared about meeting our needs as well as our budget without compromising on our insurance. Now, my husband and I are living in our new home and feel 100% comfortable and secure, which is the best feeling of all.

Thank you Matthew and the whole team at ELM Insurance!
