A Little About Me


There are many options when choosing a broker. A broker should be knowledgeable, reliable and have a clear understanding of the products they are selling. 


My name is John Howland and I have been a licensed broker for almost two years now and have worked in the insurance industry for more than 10 years. Before becoming a broker I worked at several private insurance companies in the member services departments. I really enjoyed helping people and in order to do so I had to learn every aspect of the insurance industry from enrollment and eligibility to claims to billing and so much more. I spent four of those years working specifically for the Medicare Department in a large, Connecticut based insurance company and as a broker I will available to my clients anytime, not just during the enrollment phase.

I grew up in Waterbury and moved to Bristol in 2019. I chose to work locally and not for a nationwide company because I enjoy helping my neighbors and personally getting know each and every one of you. I offer in-person consultations whether in your home or at a local coffee shop or wherever is most convenient for you. In this modern day in age I also utilize virtual consultations using videoconferencing platforms such as Zoom. This may seem a bit daunting at first but its amazingly easy to use...all you need is a computer or a smartphone. You then click on a link that I send you and that's it!

My experience working for the insurance companies have provided me a uniquely well-rounded understanding of the internal workings of the Medicare insurance industry. Many people don't realize this but using a broker for your insurance needs costs you absolutely nothing! As a broker I work for the customer, not the insurance companies. I am contracted with all the major carriers in CT so I will find you the best plan based on your specific needs. I can tell you from experience that insurance, especially Medicare, can be very daunting, when just aging into the Medicare system.


As your broker I promise to provide a seamless and smooth experience, You can count on me putting your needs first, no matter the situation.
