We were very impressed wtih John.  He was informative, efficient, obliging and professional.  We felt comfortable discussing our insurance with him and appreciated his friendly and approachable manner.  He tailored our individual insurance needs with ease and we would definitely recommend John and Paragon to others.

John and Steve have provided insurance products for both our business and personal portfolios. They’re up-front, honest and what I especially like, they don’t sell us what we don’t need.

My brother and I have a business in the scaffold industry and therefore we are in a high risk industry. It was important for us to find an insurance solution to best manage such risks.

John sat down with Blair and myself and listened and to us so he could gain an understanding of the extent of the risks etc that we face in our business.

John was brilliant in the way that he understood our needs and came up with a solution that best manages our risks. He was also able to come up with a solution that best met my personal insurance needs. So my family and I can get on with life, knowing that we are well covered.

I would highly recommend the services of Paragon to anyone looking to better their insurance needs.

Within 24 hours, my 43 year old husband had died suddenly and the main bridge on our farm was washed away with severe flooding. During this traumatic time, my main focus was for my young children and how I was going to get through the hard times ahead.  It was a huge relief to have John come to my home and handle the claims process from start to finish.  Without this help and the financial assistance the insurance provided, this time would have been significantly harder.

I continue to trust and rely on John to review my personal and farm insurance policies and any claims I have in either of these area’s.  I value John’s warm, friendly and professional manner and the fact that he keeps in regular contact to ensure my insurance programme stays up to date.  John’s experience in the farming industry means I know I can trust him to ensure my business and family are well protected.  I have no hesitation in recommending John and Paragon to others.

My wife Anna and I would like to let you know we have been most impressed with your company during a recent overhaul of both our personal and business insurances.

We found that all aspects of cover were explained fully to us in a friendly and straight forward manner. There was never any pressure on us to act, other than how we personally felt our insurances should reflect our own personal requirements and budget.

We felt relaxed and assured of the best possible service whenever we contacted your staff.
Again, thank you for providing top professional service and advice.
