We settle for nothing short of the best.

“Take It To The Max” is our tagline but it really sums up what Maximum is all about.

Partnership with our clients is based on a three-pronged approach:

The Max Difference

Other wholesalers say their goal is to meet your expectations.


At Max, we already know we are going to do that. Our starting point is simply different. We can’t help it – our innate ability to drive results and remain agile puts us at a different level. We go beyond what others consider a job well done. We draw on the full capability of our team and vast industry relationships to maneuver around challenges.


To us, it’s not just about the deal. We take pride on how we get the transaction done – the communication, follow-through and delivery. We operate under a strict code of service standards to make sure you know the status of your submission and receive an accurate policy in a timely manner. At Max, the difference is that we will do it right.

As one of the original founders of Maximum, Joe Messina’s unwavering commitment to client relationships and delivering results is at the core of how Maximum does business. He focuses on what he does best through leading by example and heading up Maximum’s Property practice with years of experience within the sector. When he gets the chance to unplug, Joe stays active running, cycling, swimming or keeping up with the three young adults he calls kids.
