Advocate Brokerage Corporation, Scarsdale's Pre
820 Scarsdale Ave, Scarsdale, NY 10583, USA
In 1968, Rosalyn Binday, a mother with a young family, did something nearly unheard of: she started to sell insurance. She invested time in her clients and discovered that her community had a need for a high quality service provider. Roz recalled, “Everyone needed insurance for their homes, cars, or businesses. I found we could make buying insurance a more positive experience by getting to know our clients and their families.” That became the mission of Advocate Brokerage, which specializes in providing personal and commercial insurance to affluent individuals throughout Scarsdale, Westchester County, and the surrounding tri-state area. Advocate grew to become one of the finest customer service agencies in affluent Westchester County. A FAMILY LEGACY Ronald Binday, Roz’s husband, joined the firm, followed by their son Glenn Binday and their daughter Denise Koslowsky. Together Glenn, Principal of the Commercial Lines division and Denise, Principal of the Personal Lines division continue to gain an understanding of the needs of their clients and provide each customer with advice, the highest level of service and best coverage available. As a result, Advocate Brokerage has consistently been a top performer and award winner among the specialized High Net Worth Insurance Market.
