WHAT WE VALUE AT BM&A

TRUST
Honesty, integrity, reliability: these principles make up the very essence of our work. Trust is paramount to every relationship we develop, from our internal working relationships to the connections we build with you and with all of our clients.

COMMITMENT
Our commitment to each client goes beyond the initial sale. In an ever-changing professional environment, we aim to provide ongoing guidance and comprehensive, affordable insurance that will deliver lasting value beyond the price.

QUALITY
With BM&A's 38 years of experience, we see truth in the saying "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten." Through continuous learning and educational opportunities, as well as our emphasis on the value of asset protection in providing quality risk management, we aim to enhance your life by alerting you to potential benefits entering the marketplace.

TEAMWORK
Over the years, our current clients have seen the worth of having access to a Family Board of Directors comprised of primary care physicians, dentists, lawyers, and accountants, as well as an insurance agent responsible for coordinating family risk management. BM&A's culture of respect, as well as our staff's willingness to lend a helping hand, allows us to provide you with total solutions. As a team, our goal is to fully protect your assets and offer integrated, professional advice regarding your family's insurance rates / finance concerns, from one stage of life to the next.

WHO WE ARE

WE'RE FRIENDLY!
We are committed to creating a friendly working environment for our staff and clients alike. As we develop relationships, both throughout the McCall insurance staff and by reaching out to you well beyond the sale, we represent a team-oriented, relationship-driven agency capable of putting your needs first.

WE'RE OPTIMISTIC!
By remaining optimistic and open to our clients' life challenges, we are presented with an opportunity to further develop into a thoughtful, helpful staff. Just as our products represent our solution-oriented, can-do approach to client business, so too does our emphasis on connecting with you in your time of need. Our clients remain one of our most valuable assets… we strive to maintain your faith as a trustworthy business.

WE'RE HARDWORKING!
Our agency prizes client-focused work, reflected first through our guarantee that your calls will be returned the same day and second through our extended hours (until 7pm nightly; 9am-12pm Saturdays), in place for your convenience. These benefits, when provided by a staff trained to proactively match client needs with new products and services, have set our agency's standards high above others in the insurance industry. As a testament to our hard work, we greatly appreciate our current clients' ongoing referrals to friends and family.

WE'RE DYNAMIC!
In an ever-changing insurance industry, our agency combines fresh, youthful ideas with experienced-based solutions to provide you with the assistance you need. We understand the importance of providing our agents access to the most up-to-date tools, technologies, and product changes, allowing us to both give you top-rate advice, and remain confident as a staff.

QUESTION: Why is insurance like a tea bag?

ANSWER: You don't know how good or bad it is until you are in hot water.

We look forward to joining your Family's Board of Directors. We are here to serve you!

Brooks M. McCall , CLU : ChFC _ Agency Owner

I started with Nationwide as an agent after graduating from the University of Delaware in 1972. 38 years later I still love what I do. I enjoy helping clients in the area of financial services, from IRAs, mutual funds, and 529 plans to fixed and variable annuities, long term care, and disability insurance. In addition, during these years my wife and I raised three children who have since graduated from college. Coaching and sponsoring sports for many years have also provided me with fond and rewarding memories. In my spare time I enjoy fishing, golf, and most of all, spending time with my family.
