I would like to first mention the impressive quality of knowledge and relationships with the clients that Jordan Shields and his team provide. We count on that source of notable partnership when we deal with any health benefit questions/issues. Since we’ve been working with the company for the past nine plus years, we have seen a steady increase in the employees benefit enrollment. During that time we felt professionally held and supported by our benefit broker agency personnel. We really appreciate their help in making a really positive experience for us.
