What Our Clients Say

How do we focus? Some direct quotes from our clients.
Woodhaven Lumber & Millwork, Inc. - Lakewood, Pt. Pleasant & Manahawkin, NJ

Our business found itself in dire straights after learning in late 2000 that our insurance company had been declared insolvent and would no longer be offering coverage by year end. As a major supplier of lumber to the New Jersey home building industry, it was critical that operations and product delivery by our fleet of some 85+ trucks be uninterrupted. To our relief, Paul Squassi and his staff did what had to be done and kept us moving. Resource Group has since revised and streamlined our insurance portfolio affording us a more cost effective program with an eye on future cost controls as well. Subsequently, our health and retirement benefits, which serve nearly 200 employees have also been turned over to this agency.

We are pleased to have had the opportunity of meeting and doing business with Paul and his firm and look forward to growing our relationship with Resource Group.

The Bronx Brewery - New York, NY

Resource Group has been instrumental in planning and managing our insurance needs, which as a brewer and distributor are vast and complex. Despite my company's small size, Paul and Eva have always worked tirelessly to ensure we have the right coverage at the lowest prices with the best carriers. As we grew from a startup to a small business, they managed the transition seemlessly and even saved us some money along the way.


This knowledgable team is always available to answer questions and to help plan and strategize future insurance needs. But most importantly, I know I never need to worry about insurance, because I am confident that they are always on top of things.


I would whole-heartedly recommend Resource Group to another brewer - or any business - looking for smart, hard-working, and friendly insurance reps.

Behavior LLC - New York, NY

When we started our business a few years ago, we were lucky enough to do so with the benefit of a Fortune 500 banking institution as one of our lead clients. This client took very seriously the matter of making sure that its vendors were properly insured. They imposed on us a series of complicated and comprehensive requirements for coverage, and we had to meet them in a timely manner in order to be deemed 'vendor qualified.'

We went to see Resource Group with these requirements, not knowing how to make heads or tails of them, and feeling very time-pressured. We had a small window of opportunity in which to obtain coverage, and missing it would mean losing out on a major revenue boost to our fledgling business.

Thankfully, Resource Group received us calmly and professionally, and they helped us get through the entire affair without a hitch. With their patience and experience, we were able to get a grasp of what was being asked of us, understand what is meant for our business, and obtain coverage just in time for our deadline. We remain ever grateful to Paul for being so helpful in that matter and for his continued help to this day; it makes all the difference to us.

I am writing this letter to you to thank you for your consideration and services you have provided to Defran Systems for the past 10 years. We value all assistance and advice you have given us. The professional and prompt manner in which you maintain our account, rare in today's world, makes it a pleasure to do business with you.

You helped us a great deal with implementing the 401k plan and finding a health care coverage provider for our employees that met our needs and our budget (and you helped us change three times). You helped us find the best policies with regard to general insurance liability. The knowledge that you hold has been expressed through your advice and you never let us down. You are very committed to our company. I highly recommend utilizing the creditable and efficient services Resource Group has to offer. I believe any organization would be fortunate to have you on their team.

James D. Miller & Co. LLP - New York, NY

I have known Paul Squassi about 20 years and place a high value on our personal and professional relationship. Resource Group has provided for our firm's insurance needs during this period and has been exceptionally responsive to all the challenges that we have been faced with in this regard. We have recommended Resource Group to a number of our clients, who have been thoroughly satisfied with the service they have received as well. Lastly, I have used the firm for my personal insurance needs and will never forget Paul's efficiency in obtaining insurance on my home when my prior insurer declined coverage less than 24 hours prior to closing for purchase. It is this kind of service that really makes a difference.

I look forward to many more years of pleasant association with Paul and Resource Group.

Robin Roger - Westchester, NY

I have had the pleasure of working with Paul Squassi of Resource Group for over a decade. Paul has always been a pleasure to deal with. He has provided me with practical advice on optimizing my insurance costs with respect to house, auto and employee coverage, calling me without prompting to encourage me to review and assess my needs from time to time. He is practical and realistic. He has willingly tutored me in technical matters at my request over the years, and his intelligence and sense of humor have enlivened many discussions about an otherwise dry topic.

I enjoy working with Paul and his team, and believe that they add value to my basic insurance policies in terms of service, follow-up and focus.
