How We Work

Our family owned business was originally started by Fred Schwartz in the back of his father's department store and has been in continuous operation for over 70 years.  Sandra worked with Fred for many years before acquiring the business when he retired.  Since then, Ari, Sandra's son, has joined the company bringing his knowledge of insurance, both property and casualty and life, to the mix. 

Here at Schwartz Tax and Insurance we strive to educate our clients while providing them with exceptional service.  Many clients have been with us for decades, and we are now working with their children and grandchildren. 

Our team approach adds perspective and provides increased benefits to our clients.
