Hello, my name is James Long and I have been a licensed Health and Life insurance broker 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 25 years now. My wife, Teri, and I reside in Royersford, PA and have two daughters. Gabrielle is 12 and Juliana is 9. The girls are so young, fun, sweet, and growing up too fast. We feel very blessed.
My business career started in retail operations and multi-unit management. About 15 years ago I found my new calling, helping people with a very important, yet misunderstood necessity. Medicare happens to be an especially complicated topic, which make this experience even more rewarding. I am very proud that our business has grown over the years from one agent to four expert licensed brokers and two support staff. My goal is to be the best resource possible for the population we serve, and not just for Medicare. In 2019 I earned the Certified Senior Advisor certification. As a CSA, we are trained and tested on a variety of senior-related issues. I've worked hard to carry out one of our primary objectives, to establish partnerships with other professionals in the community so they can be called upon to assist when needed.
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 and developing long-standing relationships. while keeping in mind that my business is a very important and personal issue to those I’m helping.
