Do you KNOW your agent?
If your agent is in a building six states away, does he KNOW you? Many people do not even know their agent, let alone if they have family of their own – or what they do for hobbies. If you want to know our life story – you will have to come in and visit!
Do you KNOW your coverage?
Being in the insurance business, we have heard nearly every sort of crazy, destructive story there is to hear – but nothing beats a story when we know that the person or property involved was covered by one of our policies. We want you to be covered, and truly care about your security.
