Purchasing insurance can be an expensive proposition, especially if you don’t get proper counseling before you choose your coverages. You need to talk to a professional trained in advising you on the financial implications of your choices: whether you’ve got the right kind of protection; whether you have enough insurance-or even too much; whether you have any serious gaps in your coverage; or whether you qualify for any discounts.
Professional counseling, personal service
This is the kind of expertise you get when you deal one-on-one with a professional, independent insurance agent. Your agent can evaluate your unique circumstances and then tailor coverages to meet your specific needs. Unlike “captive” agents who represent one insurance company, a professional agent works for you, the client, and can shop for insurance through many insurance companies to get you the best coverage at the best price. Unlike direct-sale companies whose service representatives sell one company’s product via phone or mail, a professional insurance agent will counsel you personally-no long-distance phone call or mail survey can top the service that comes from dealing face-to-face with a professional agent. And unlike financial institutions such as banks, we specialize in insurance sales-it’s not a peripheral product you might feel obliged to buy to secure a loan.
