  • “We have had our house and vehicle insurance with OEGEMA-NICHOLSON & ASSOC. INS. BKRS. located at 243 Castor Street in Russell, Ontario, for several years now. The people in the office have always been friendly and courteous whenever we had any queries and, in particular, we want to thank Christopher Lough who has been so helpful in every way. The thing we like the most is when you telephone this office you get a live person answering and not a machine.”-Jerry Gaudry

  • “One call to Oegema, Nicholson Associates is all it took. After our basement flooded, within a day or two they had a crew cleaning everything up, taking down the drywall and itemizing everything to be cleaned, thrown out or restored. They had everything in place for us in a timely manner and were extremely patient with me as they talked me through the process and waited for me to make decisions.”– Jennifer Parks, Stittsville, Ontario
