"James has been a valuable business reference for about fifteen years.  Whenever one of my clients or business associates had a question related to insurance, Jim was the first option for advice.   I guess that I have recommended him once each month in that time span. He is knowledgeable and thorough."
~ Mark Rosman CPA, Partner, Rosman and Company - Lynbrook, NY

"I have been doing business related health insurance policies with Jim Eckardt for almost 10 years. His experience, insights and customer service mindset have been invaluable to me and my company. He recently helped me with a personal life insurance matter that was not able to be resolved by a number of agents and companies I had worked with previously. Jim's persistence and commitment to addressing my needs was outstanding and the financial savings were the icing on the cake. He is a true professional in every sense of the word."

"I can't say enough about this company!  When we got thrown into the rough waters of healthcare insurance changes, Jim helped us navigate it like a true professional! Knows his stuff and is VERY responsive!"
~ Rob Springer, President, Computer Logic Group - Ronkonkoma, NY


"I have been working with Jim for over 20 years. As an accountant working with many small businesses, I get a lot of questions regarding medical insurance. Jim knows all the angles and has on every referral been able to guide my clients in the best direction. In addition, Jim and his staff,  helped me with residential building insurance on an apartment complex that we manage. This insurance is very difficult to obtain from other carriers due to a few claims on record, but Jim’s staff informed me that they were able to renew with another very reputable company saving a few thousand dollars. I highly recommend Jim and his staff for any insurance needs."
~ Joe DeFino CPA,  DeFino & D’Elia – Bellmore, NY


"I have used Jim’s services for over 15 years through the recommendation of my accountant.  It is a pleasure to deal with a person who is a true professional. His knowledge and understanding of the complexity of the Health Insurance industry has been a huge help for me. He not only gives you complete information and guidance but is there for you afterwards to help with any problems that may accrue. It is a pleasure to deal with an individual that not only helps you through the sale of insurance but continues to help and check-in with you well after the sale. Jim is an asset to any individual or company looking to navigate the complex world of Health Insurance."
~ Andrew Braun, President, BRAN-ART, Inc.


"I have used Jim Eckardt / Peak Advisors for my health insurance since 1997, and switched my car and home insurance to him about 2 years ago. I have been completely satisfied with Jim, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for health, car, and homeowners insurance."
~ Frank Sciulla, President, F&M Abstract - Riverhead, NY


"We have been in business for 28 years.  For 8 years we were using an insurance agent that starting out strong, and then was not of the quality we were looking for.  My accountant, whose judgement I totally trust, referred us to Jim Eckardt.  Jim was exactly the type of agent we were looking for.  Where the other agent made several mistakes, Jim and his staff were impeccable.  They researched the best companies for us, and made recommendations.   We were never told by our prior agent that we could make four payments, with no interest, just a $10 partial payment fee each time.  This took such a burden off of us.  Our other agent never mentioned it, and instead offered us a high interest loan!  We have been through several company changes, and Jim's office has been great about researching all of our options.  Everything was done in a timely manner as well.  We are now in the process of comparing our personal coverage to see if Jim could help us with that. We highly recommend Jim and Peak Advisors for any business looking for a professional agent with a personal touch."
~ Terry Siegel, Kiddie Junction Pre-School & Camp - Levittown, NY

I highly recommend Jim and his team as the "Go to Team" for any of your insurance needs as they offer a personal touch and take the searching strain out of the work place, finding the best costs available."
~ Ken Hughes, G&F Systems - Roosevelt, NY


"As the owner of a small business it is important to deal with someone who understands the problems that small businesses face every day.  Jim has always been someone who not only understands but goes out of his way to help me.  He has always been available and patient with questions that might come up.  We have been doing business for the last 20 years. My in-laws owned a restaurant and I was introduced to Jim through them. They highly recommended him and I am glad they did. I would definitely recommend Jim Eckardt."
~ Guy Floresta, East Coast Auto Crafting, Lindenhurst, NY

"I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the professional service we received from James.  Specifically, he always called back or made himself available on a timely fashion whenever I had a question to this most complicated important issue of finding quality, affordable health insurance.


James took his time explaining and comparing every package available to me and quite often re-explained it. After making our choice James was right on it forwarding the application and filing it for us.  After the approval, he made sure I called in my premium with the information needed to be sure I would kick in at January 1 with no mistake."
