What Our Clients Say
"Since 2011, Karl and his team including Tobi Silver, Caitlin McKinney and Jason Feitelberg have been trusted advisors to our company and family. Working collaboratively with members of our team and our other advisors, they continually monitor and match our personal and business needs with appropriate life insurance products and underwriting. Their knowledge of the industry and their ability to negotiate with carriers on our behalf is exemplary and their commitment to service evidenced by ongoing oversight and review coupled with analysis and recommendations has been unmatched by other life insurance professionals we have used."

"Karl Feitelberg is a highly skilled practitioner in the insurance field. The "alphabet soup" behind his name confirms that. Karl and his colleagues at Sterling Resources offer a circle of competence that encompasses much more than traditional insurance. Indeed, Sterling Resources provides an array of insurance strategies and products that allow wealth managers to take advantage of the most significant financial innovations spawned in recent years by the rapid integration of international capital and insurance markets. After over two decades of benefiting from Karl's professional counsel I am convinced that he is one of the outstanding experts in the field and that he is as trustworthy as any professional with whom I have worked in my entire career. Nothing is more important than trust."

“We have worked with Tobi Silver for several years; she is the only life insurance professional I have met who really took the time to get to know us and our business needs.
She understands that building a relationship is more important than making a sale; her expertise and responsiveness have resulted in the best life insurance plan our family business has ever had.”

"I can honestly say that Karl Feitelberg has always been there for me and my family whenever we have needed him. My father and I were introduced to Karl 17 years ago when we were looking to protect our family business from future burdens. Karl set into place a solid insurance program specifically designed for our needs. Right from the start Karl explained the products and why they would work for us. Never did he speak at us. He spoke to us. Karl explained the products to us in a simple manner that was understandable to all family members. He and his staff were prepared for all of our questions and went out of their way to make the process of a physical examination as easy as possible. Our policies that were originally set up 17 years ago are still in place, having been fine tuned throughout the years. Karl and his team monitor all of our families' policies and inform us when one needs to be adjusted, whether it be due to a change in insurance regulations, a new family matter or a changing economy. What I love most about Karl and his team is that they treat you like family. When you call him or anyone on his team you feel as though you are talking with a close friend. This personal atmosphere permeates throughout Sterling Resources. A warm and genuine business relationship such as this is extrememly rare this day and age. I am extremely fortunate to know Karl and his exceptional team. I know for a fact that Sterling Resources will always be there, protecting me and my family."
Laurie Mandly Chairman & CEO, Research Engineering & Manufacturing Inc., April 2014
