  Cathedral of Faith

The greatest compliment I can pay Marc is to say that he’s always available.   Even though he has a qualified staff, he makes time to speak with me personally if I ask for him.   He’s quite knowledgeable, anticipates problems (the Lifeguard bankruptcy), and has alternatives or solutions lined up.  He’s never overbearing, but at the same time doesn’t act like he doesn’t need our business.   I believe he gives us his best quote right from the beginning and doesn’t play the “What’s he quoting you?  I can beat that” game.   I know he has some large municipal and county accounts, but he still makes me feel as though Cathedral of Faith is important to him.   I have and will continue to recommend his services to anyone looking for employee benefit coverage.
