How Hard Does Your Insurance Agent Work for You?

This is a fun video starring yours truly, but I think it makes an important and serious point that I'd like to briefly explain - that is, the value of having a dedicated insurance agent that you can call your own.

To all the first-time visitors here, I'd like to ask you a question: How many of you have a particular professional you can call on, that you know by name, when you need to talk about serious financial matters like insuring your teenage daughter's first car, buying a home, or protecting your family with a life insurance policy?

My guess is that far too many of you do not. When the inevitable insurance issue arises, like when you get in a car accident or move out of state, most of you probably dial the 1-800 number on your insurance card and are greeted with a machine made to sound like a real person. After pressing "1" for English, you are then presented with a number of options and filtered to the appropriate department, at which point you are handed off to a customer service rep. that you've probably never spoken to before - and never will again.

That doesn't seem to be the best way to deal with something as important as your property, which is really your money. Money does not grow on trees, as they say, and securing your hard-earned assets with the appropriate coverage should be handled with great care. There is no single solution that will be optimal for every individual or family. Even choosing the right umbrella insurance can be tricky.

As an experienced Personal Insurance Advisor and Independent Agent, I know my clients personally and spend as much time as is needed with each and every one of them to make sure their families and assets are properly and satisfactorily protected. From our first phone conversation and initial quote to every subsequent policy adjustment I will be there to explain your options, answer your questions, and make sure you are getting the best value available. I take the time to understand your needs and help you put together the policy that best fits your budget and requirements.

So, if you haven't already, I invite you to take a few seconds to complete the "free quote" form here on my website and experience for yourself the benefits of having a dedicated agent that works for you. Most of my first-time contacts are happy to find out they can save money and increase the quality of their coverage at the same time. Even if you don't sign up with me, in the very least I hope that next time you have an insurance question you'll think, "Oh yeah, I'll call Matt."
