Joseph Giardina: Not Your Average Insurance Agent

I will be the first to admit that I find the world of insurance a bit hard to understand and have wondered about the people who enjoy it. How can anyone like all of the paper and endless details? That makes Joseph Giardina, the president of North Castle Insurance Agency in Armonk-North Castle, New York, laugh. “It’s not that bad,” he insists, smiling. “So much of it is online now, so the paper side of insurance is decreasing. As for the details, my mind works that way. I actually have a good time as I sort through all the fine print, and when I explain it to my clients and see that they understand it, too, that’s very satisfying for me.”

Joseph Giardina has been guiding his clients to reliable, affordable insurance for the past twenty years. “One of the benefits of the job is how many people I get to meet,” he reflects. “I also get to sit alongside people at key times of their lives: first car, first home, first business – the list goes on. Being able to help them choose a policy that will protect their dream house, for example, is a great feeling.”

North Castle Insurance Agency’s extensive life insurance policies

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. This was true for one of my clients, who died suddenly when he was only 30 years old or so. His wife suddenly had no means to support herself, and she had young children to care for. Because he had purchased a life insurance policy with us, I was able to give her a $500,000 check at his funeral. That brought her peace of mind for their financial future even though the money could never bring her husband back.”

North Castle Insurance Agency’s homeowners insurance

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.”

North Castle Insurance Agency’s additional insurance policies 

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.”
