About Folks Insurance Group

Folks Insurance Group is dedicated to the highest level of professionalism and integrity in the sales and service of products designed to protect the assets of both the business and individual community.

James M. Folks, Jr. founded Folks Insurance Group in Sayville, Long Island, NY in 2001 with a simple belief: all too often in the insurance industry the needs of the client are lost within the "big business agenda." Under Jim’s direction, Folks Insurance Group takes pride in providing superior customer service by putting beliefs into action and building a relationship with every client they serve.

Despite opening their doors during a tumultuous time for the insurance industry and the world at large, Folks Insurance Group has written millions of dollars of premiums. Maximizing the benefits of insurance to enable you to feel secure in both your home and business life, Folks Insurance Group offers a wide variety of insurance products. The staff at Folks provides its customers with the best information available for both their commercial and personal insurance needs by taking the time to learn about each customer and identify the best steps toward ensuring that their home, life or business assets are protected.

Folks Insurance Group, a Distinct Advantage

This gives us the flexibility to offer a broader range of options at highly competitive prices. You get a personally tailored plan to suit your needs and budget. It is truly a win-win proposition.

We offer unparalleled and unbiased advocacy to our customers, from quote through claims. As your needs and your life changes, you can switch coverage, and companies if necessary with one phone call. Being a one-stop shop saves our clients time and money.



I am a real estate broker for over 25 years and pride myself and my business on Above and Beyond Service to our clients. I am able to offer services beyond the scope of my profession ranging from contractors, attorneys, cleaning services, insurance needs, permits and more. I usually choose the best 3 and let the client decide who they are most comfortable with. Folks Insurance has been the agency that my clients always seem to go with because of their efficiency and best rates and customer service practices. Barbara Lyons is my agent as well on my own home and even when she is not available –which is rare – her team is the best. They are always professional, friendly, and show the clients exceptional services at the best rates possible. I highly recommend them and am happy knowing that when I do-my clients are in good hands! Thank you for all you do! Your services have been exceptional and I will be happy to keep recommending you to my clients and future clients.
