What are the potential pitfalls of different property insurance policies, how do some companies mislead people?
Many people learn hard lessons from natural disasters or other difficult events. When you work direct with an insurer it's not always in their best interest to offer coverage that are likely to cost them money. We don't want to even suggest that some companies providing insurance services are dishonest, and many, possibly most are not at all. However, most businesses focus on short term generation of profits, often placing that ahead of long-term customer service interests. Many people don't learn until it's too late that a particular type of disaster isn't covered by their policy because of a hidden clause in the coverage. It's in our interest to provide you coverage that PAYS OFF should costly circumstances occur, not to hide clauses in your coverage that become problems when you thought you were covered. Most companies won't bother to even ask why you carry coverage that don't seem material to your needs.

Beyond that, creating real protection for you means a LOT more than simply calculating a number based on your initial suggestions. If your insurance company doesn't do a comprehensive evaluation of your needs, how can they understand them? Proper insurance coverage takes a lot into account, your real budget, your real risks and much more. Only an agent who REALLY cares will take the time to create a package that covers you, without costing you more than it should.

What does the Wasserman Agency do differently?
We look beyond the quote requests to evaluate your real risks and budget. We make suggestions even ones that lower the cost of coverage with your benefit in mind first. We believe that works better for us in the long run because clients who are well served will bring additional types of coverage to us, as well as refer friends and family. We seek to grow our business by serving our clients interests first. Your Wasserman Agent will take the time to explain your coverage and make sure you understand what is covered. We don't like bad surprises any more than you do, and knowing our clients on a personal basis, the last thing we want is to disappoint them.
