Northeast Insurance Advisors was
Started with a Few Simple Goals:

Be a part of the community. Look out for our neighbors. Lend a helping hand when things go wrong. As an independent, full-service insurance agency, we can help you find the insurance coverage that fits your needs best. We know you don’t spend your day thinking about insurance, which is why we do!  As your advisors, we can help you understand your policy (because, yes, insurance is complicated) and meet your needs as they change over time. We can help with all of it, in one place, at one time, face to face.

You have a personal doctor and a personal attorney…
why not a personal insurance professional.


Taras “T” Karkoc
Agent, Long Term Care, Disability, Health, Employee Benefits • 612.314.0688

Taras, or “T” as his friends know him, was born in Northeast Minneapolis and now lives in the neighborhood with his wife Jennifer, son Seamus and a menagerie of rescue animals. After a career in the nonprofit world, T chose the insurance industry for two reasons: 1) it gave him a chance to apply his business acumen and 2) he genuinely enjoys helping others. The latter explains why, when he’s not helping clients with insurance, he’s helping out in the neighborhood via the Saint Anthony East Neighborhood Association Board of Directors and the East Minneapolis Exchange Club. He’s also involved in Project Homeless Connect and the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation.

He recently decided to move back to the Land Of Lakes with his wife Tiffani and their 3 kids, Ben, Ellie & Kate. Jeff’s hobbies are golfing, supporting his kids in their sport activities, attending sporting events, spending time on the lake with family/friends and being very involved with his local church.
