What Our Clients Say...

"Thank you for all of the assistance that you have provided over the years. You are a trusted and reliable resource and I have come to rely upon you for both my personal and professional insurance requirements." ~ R. Forman

"Most people dread the idea of having to deal with any sort of insurance problem. With Howard as my agent, this is not the case. Every problem I have come across, whether car or home, has been taken care of by Howard and his staff quickly and diligently. And without haggling. When you need him most, he is there. Aside from being a trustworthy agent, I also consider Howard a good person and friend." ~ Matt

“Erich Courant is the best insurance brokerage firm I have worked with over the past 35 years. They provide insurance coverage for our real estate and medical consulting company. They also provide coverage for our family. We get regular guidance to protect our business and owner’s interests. And, when we have had claim, they have exceeded our expectations in putting the pieces back together. We have had 2 catastrophic events that they managed with perfection. Getting full coverage to quickly replace a computer server room containing 8 mission critical servers. And, guiding and orchestrating the claim and reconstruction financing of a 2nd home that involved a several hundred thousand dollar claim”. ~ S. Tabor

"I have known Howard Bergstein for over 25 years...The way he and his firm handle their clients is amazing. The personal touch that they offer is very rare this day in age...I would recommend Erich Courant & Co., Inc. and Howard Bergstein and his staff." ~ L. Micchelli

"I have been a personal and business client of Erich Courant & Company for the past 15 years. Their exceptional service, response time, professionalism and attention is unmatched. They have helped me navigate the claims process for both personal and business claims with positive outcomes. I have referred family, friends and business associates over the years all of which thank me and commend the staff for their attention to detail, timeliness and personal service." ~ D. Kushner

"Howard came to my office a couple of years ago and took the time to assess what my family's insurance coverage needs were. While I appreciated his efforts, I was most concerned at the time with consolidating all my policies under one "roof" and saving money on premium payments. It turned out that Howard was able to get me more coverage with a better carrier (Chubb) than I had before, and managed to save me money on the annual premiums that I had been paying. As fate would have it, my apartment was flooded the next winter as the result of a frozen pipe to extent that my home was uninhabitable for about 7 months. My flood was at 7:00AM on a weekday, I called Howard at 7:15AM, and he had a flood remediation team at my place by 9:30AM. He had a name and a number for every service that I needed from movers to contractors, etc. and made himself available constantly to help me and my family get our home back to order. He also made sure that our homeowners insurance paid our claims fairly and in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend Howard and his team and Chubb to anyone requiring quality insurance coverage and first-rate service." ~ J. Krantz

"As an Insurance professional myself for 30 years, I know the value of a broker is truly tested at the time of a serious claim. Hurricane Sandy presented my family with a very significant watercraft claim. Howard Bergstein and his staff at Erich Courant not only recommended the right coverage for me prior to the loss, their response time and claim service was second to none. Erich Courant orchestrated all the resources necessary to see my claim to completion and in doing so, by far exceeded my expectations." ~ R. Crocitto

"Our family would like to thank your company for the amazing support you provided during the water damage claim which had us out of our apartment for an entire year. Howard Bergstein provided us with the best coverage from the best carrier, Chubb, which handled everything professionally and importantly in a timely fashion. If you have never had a claim like us, you want a team that can walk you thru all of the issues from start to finish and give you peace of mind during a turbulent period. Howard and his team are great advocates for their clients, of which we will be one for the long term. Thanks again." ~ The Feinblatts, Rob and Amy
