I recently signed up with Nationwide through AJ Gambardella. They agent made the process so easy. She handled everything, including cancelling my old policy. Shortly there after I had a claim; I called my agent and she handled everything. I would recommend AJ Gambardella Associates to everyone! They have professional and knowledgeable staff.

The Gambardella did a great job with our life insurance needs. We were able to get the coverage that we needed at an affordable premium. Chris took time to explain the different types of policies and performed a needs analysis to make sure we have the right protection. Great experience
DannyMistr From Stamford, CT
I have had Nationwide insurance for years and never really needed help until recently. The agency did everything they could to assist me with my recent claim.
DenisS From Northford, CT
I have been doing business with Chris and this agency for over 12 years and I am never disappointed. They continue to provide exceptional service, prompt responses, a pleasant attitude and I feel that they always have my best interest at heart. The rates on my auto insurance have always been very good and I get a great value with them.
JeffD From North Haven, CT
I was doing some comparison shopping and came in contact with Agent Gene P. I was immediately impressed by his knowledge of the industry, and his ability to relay things to me in understandable terms. Gene took care of everything during the transfer - I did not make a single call to anyone! Not only that, but Gene got me MORE coverage at a LOWER price than I was paying before! If I had known it were that easy to switch, I would've done it a long time ago!
Lano243 From Cheshire, CT
I had the opportunity to work with agent Gene Pendake. What I remember most is his upbeat and enthusiastic attitude. Not only was he knowledgeable and professional but he was completely open and honest with me. He sought to provide me with an appropriate policy based on my needs and informed me of certain options that I didn’t even know were available. I would completely recommend that anyone out there looking for an honest, dependable agent, call Gene Pendake.

Locking Down Insurance Solutions for Connecticut Residents and Businesses

A lot has changed in Stratford since 1977 – from advances in technology to businesses coming and going. At A.J. Gambardella Associates, LLC, however, we’ve continued to serve as a benchmark in the Stratford community for nearly four decades. Our team remains prideful of the personalized client service we administer, and we look forward to handling Connecticut’s insurance needs for decades to come.

Your One-Stop Destination for Insurance Coverage

We take a consultative approach toward addressing our clients’ needs, taking time to properly identity and mitigate risks. You’ll feel right at home partnering with our agents. As an agency, our top priority is doing what is best for our clients, acting as a trusted advisor throughout the process of securing accurate, cost-effective insurance coverage.


Our clients have accessibility to local agents with more than 80 years of combined experience. This extensive knowledge is complemented by a close relationship with Nationwide Insurance, as well as a collection of other established carriers, such as The Hartford, Progressive, The Main Street America Group, and Markel First Comp.


The business insurance program we institute encompasses coverages tailored for a variety of industries. Our current book of business includes auto repair shops, construction contractors, as well as wholesalers and distributors. For the small to medium-sized businesses we work with, agents traditionally suggest a business owners policy (BOP). A BOP bundles essential coverages, such as commercial property and commercial general liability, into a single policy.


Whether you’re striving to protect your business or family, we’ll develop an effective policy at the best rate possible. Aside from business coverage, we also offer options for auto insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, and retirement planning. To discuss the selections available, contact an agent at your convenience.

Agents Acting as a Trusted Advisor

As longtime business owners and residents of Stratford ourselves, we understand the risks associated with living and working in this region. We experience the same storms and drive along the same coastal roads. This provides an advantage when designing insurance policies to meet your needs.


Even after a policy is in place, we’ll continuing reviewing coverage for accuracy and cost effectiveness. The “On Your Side” review program we offer through our partnership with Nationwide Insurance is a great way to confirm customized insurance services remain.


Our agency is also focused on contributing to the community outside of insurance services. The agency’s owner, Chris Gambardella, is active with coaching youth sports, while the collective team is a contributor of the United Way.


We look forward to securing your assets well into the future. To begin partnering with our agency, feel free to request a quote.
