What Our Clients Are Saying About Cathy

“Cathy Gibson was the BEST!  Extremely helpful and very nice.  You should be proud of employees like Cathy; it speaks well for your company.”

“Cathy Gibson and Justin Kraus of Mackoul Risk Solutions were remarkably responsive in arranging for insurance coverage for a home near the water on the East End of Long Island, which other carriers would not insure. Very pleasurable experience.”
“Our broker, Cathy Gibson, was amazing and there for us when we needed her. After a theft, we encountered issues with the carrier and she advocated for us every step of the way until resolved. Her background in the industry allowed her to represent us and advise us. She was kind and stepped up beyond expectations. I highly recommend having Cathy Gibson on your team!!”

“Great experience working with Cathy Gibson at Mackoul for my co-op policy. When my large national carrier’s rates spiked, Cathy quickly found a specialist underwriter who priced the same coverage at half the rate and signed me up very efficiently. Thank you, Cathy!”
