250 Jericho Turnpike
Mineola, NY 11501
ABOUT ME

Established in 1965.

Jim Paterson began the Agency on March 1, 1965 in the basement of his mother's home in Franklin Square and opened a small office a year later in Mineola. During our 57 years serving the people of Long Island, we have grown to a 5 full-time team with emphasis on personal service to our customers, many of whom have been with us 40-50 years as well. In this age of extreme price competition throughout the industry, our agency still believes in "the personal touch" !

Jim attended Sewanhaka High School in Floral Park and Hofstra University, where he played varsity soccer. Sports has been a big part of his life. He has been a radio and TV sportscaster in the 70's and 80's. He was the Public Address announcer for the Islanders through their championship years, and also announcer for the Jets, Mets and the Cosmos during the "Pele" years. His interest in thoroughbred racing led him to join with West Point Thoroughbreds and horses that competed in the Breeder's Cup at Santa Anita and the Queens Plate(Canada's version of the Kentucky Derby) in Toronto as well as all major racetracks in America. But all those interests were secondary to serving the various insurance needs of his policy holders throughout the NYC-Long Island area, which he continues to do daily. His experienced team stands ready to assist with all your needs, be it auto, home, business, life insurance or banking, just stop in or give us a call.

Account Representative

Hello I'm Michael Cernuto. One thing you should know about me is I love helping people! I had a background in auto marketing and was naturally involved in the insurance end of that business, which peaked my interest! I went to obtain my license and the more I learned about this field, the more I enjoyed it. It was the perfect way to help people with their needs. After being an agent for about a year, I was able to obtain a position with the nation’s leading and most respected insurance company, State Farm. Working with the Jim Paterson Agency has allowed me to turn my experiences into helping others. It’s fun to come to work each day, being able to help YOU!

I’m a licensed Personal and Commercial insurance professional as well as a Life and Health insurance representative and have my New York Notary Public license for many years. Providing customers with extraordinary personal service has always been my primary goal and after so many years, they do not feel like customers, but members of my extended family. I hope in the years to come, my State Farm family continues to grow.

Insurance Account Representative
License #LA-977930

Hi, I’m Lisa Machado: I have made my home in Mineola for the past 45 years, so it was only natural that I found a “second home” working for the Jim Paterson Agency (State Farm). I have been here for more than 20 years and am currently licensed in Personal and Commercial Lines of Insurance as well as Life and Health Insurance. I am also a Nassau County Notary Public. I speak English, Portuguese and Spanish and that has served me well in helping the Portuguese and Hispanic members of my community!
