6Hello, my name is James Long and I have been a licensed Health and Life insurance agent since 2007.
I am originally from western New York and spent some of my childhood in Southern California, but I've lived in the Philadelphia region for over 20 years now. My wife, Teri, and I reside in Royersford, PA and have two daughters. Gabrielle is 6 and Juliana is 4. The girls are so young, fun, and sweet. We feel very blessed.
After a long career of managing multi-unit businesses I made a change that would allow me to focus on what I enjoyed most about my work - helping customers with a service they need and developing long standing relationships.
For years I experienced first-hand my employees’ confusion about their health insurance benefits and I would help them the best I could to understand it all. It was then that I realized how much all people needed independent assistance and consultation in regards to such an important, yet misunderstood necessity. My experiences in this field have been so rewarding that I believe I have found the last job I will ever have.
When I am not working, I often travel to see family and friends all over the country. In the summer, I spend most weekends “down the shore” and try to fit in a round of golf when possible. When there’s snow, I attempt to relive my youth on the ski slopes once or twice a season.
I truly feel that I’ve found a “home” at Young's Insurance Services because they have the same values I do: always look out for your customer, be available when they need help, and stay true to your word. I enjoy sharing stories about family and life experiences with my clients, keeping in mind that my business is a very important and personal issue to those I’m helping.
