" I grew up in a poor Italian Family in New York and lived my entire life in Westchester and Connecticut. My parents were members of the greatest generation. They lived their faith, loved their country, and they were totally selfless. Their priorities were their children, their family and their friends. They took little for themselves and gave what they could spare to others. I learned and lived these values my entire life and I incorporate them into our business philosophy. Every customer is a member of our extended family, to the point where many have become close friends. We take the time to know their fears, concerns, passions and dreams. We then align all of our skills and resources with their goals and we never give up until they succeed. It may be old school, but it's a value system that has served us and our customers well. "
