More choices, less hassle, and just the right amount of protection.
The right insurance is about more than choosing the right company. It's about selecting coverage that fits your specific needs. Your local independent agent will provide the expert guidance to help you do both – so you can focus on your life, not on your insurance.
How Independent Agents Work for You
EASE – They’ll Do the Work Having an UNBIASED ADVOCATE on your side means you don't have to navigate the insurance world on your own. In fact, if you don't want to, you don't even have to think about the insurance world. You can rest easy knowing that your agent has the knowledge and resources to protect what matters most to you.
CHOICE – You’ll Have Many Options Because they aren’t limited to products from any one company, independent agents have the FREEDOM to create a personalized insurance package that fits your needs and your budget.
ADVICE – An Expert on Your Side Is an umbrella policy right for you? Do you have enough uninsured motorist coverage? Does your jewelry require a special rider on your homeowners policy? An independent agent can answer all of your insurance questions - even those you didn't know you had.
How Independent Insurance Agents Benefit You and Your Community
Along with offering the best combination of value and protection, independent agents work to improve the lives of those around them:
They build stronger communities. Agents are business owners and employees, but above all, they are members of the community. They make an impact by sharing their time and resources with local nonprofit organizations.
They build long-term relationships. Three out of four people use an agent to buy insurance, according to a recent survey, and many of them stay with the same agency for years. When you work with a local independent insurance agency, you deal with people you know and trust- and people who know you.
We think you will agree... Independent Insurance Agents make Insurance EASY!!!

The beauty of spring is often tempered by powerful storms, with heavy rains, strong winds and destructive hail. Through it all, your home protects you from the elements, so be sure to check it for damage afterward.
Even if you have no reason to suspect that damage occurred, check your home and its surroundings (once it’s safe to do so, of course). It’s important to identify problems, make emergency repairs and determine if an insurance claim is necessary.
Roof Your roof might be the area of your home most vulnerable to damage in a storm, because so many things can impact it. Whether you’ve had high winds and downed tree branches or just a simple hailstorm, look for these indicators of damage:
Holes in the roof
Leaks in your roof or ceiling
Building Exteriors While siding, stucco and brick all are durable, they also are susceptible to storm damage. In some instances, homeowners don’t notice until it’s too late to file a claim, so check carefully for:
Cracking, chipping or dings and dents on siding. Even if there doesn’t appear to be damage at first, check again at a different time of day. You may see something you missed when the lighting is different.
Holes in stucco. This is a serious problem, even when small, so look closely. If you find holes, have a professional conduct a full property inspection.
Damaged brick and tuck pointing. While brick typically holds up well, a check can identify any problem areas.
Detached or damaged trim, gutters, etc.
Driveways and Walkways Concrete can chip, crack and split, not only reducing the lifespan of your driveway or walkway, but potentially creating a safety issue.
Trees: Fallen trees and limbs cause more than $1 billion in damage each year, according to the National Storm Damage Center. Keep in mind that property owners generally are responsible for removing trees and limbs that have fallen on their property, even if it is a tree from a neighbor’s yard. Your insurance policy may help to cover the cost of removal and repairs, depending on the coverage you have and the circumstances of the incident. (There are exceptions to this, depending on the maintenance of the tree, so check with your insurance agent.)
Severe storms often will knock down power lines. If this happens on your property, rope off 30 feet in each direction around the line and do not touch it. Call 911 and the power company immediately.
Be sure to do a full check of your property, including things such as your air-conditioning unit, fences, vent caps, etc. And don’t forget to check your vehicles if they were not garaged at the time of the storm.
Don’t forget the crawl space. “Most people don’t ever look down there,” according to J. Szczesny, owner of 4 Seasons Home Inspections in Seattle and a Certified Master Inspector. “You need to be sure no water is getting in, and, if it is, make sure it is removed quickly via a sump pump or underground drainage system.”
Take pictures of all damage from different angles. You want to document as much as possible.
Finally, knowing the details of your homeowners coverage, your limits and your deductibles can help you during the insurance claims process. It’s a great idea to examine your policy and know what your homeowners insurance covers now, before the storm.
