Why an Agent?

"Insurance? I knew absolutely nothing about it, at all. I started looking around and found that there are a lot of companies out there and a lot of information to sort through. So much in fact that I became overwhelmed and didn't know which way was up. Unfortunately, I didn't have a trained advisor guiding me and helping me select the right coverages and ended up paying too much for limited coverage. After my first accident, I found an insurance agent that took me step-by-step through what I needed. What a refreshing experience!"

Quotes Left I had a boat for 10 years before I realized every boater should have insurance. One of my friends told me about specialized boat insurance and I got it. Good thing I did. The next summer my boat left me stranded in the middle of a lake after springing a leak. The boat sunk, but my boat policy didn't. My insurance company took care of me from start to finish, paying for all environmental damages and replacing my boat. Quote
