National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

100-yards, 300 feet or the length of a football field, is the distance one can travel without looking at the road because they were distracted on their cellphone. On a typical day, more than 700 people are critically injured due to distracted driving.

Talking or texting on a phone – even if it’s hands-free – diverts attention away from the road and the potential to save a life.  Many companies have started campaigns asking people to take a pledge and commit to making our roads safer for everyone. We invite you to join us in a commitment to drive with no distractions, because all it takes is 100-yards, 300 feet or the length of a football field.

Understanding Your Homeowners Policy

Purchasing a home is a big deal and can be a bit overwhelming. More so, all the paperwork and details that go into buying your forever home. We want to make sure that understanding your coverage is a simple as possible.

Our responsibility is to provide protection against perils such as fire, theft, vandalism, windstorm and hailstorm among others. We also provide earthquake and flood insurance which are separate policies that can be purchased.

The purpose of home insurance is the security of knowing that your home will be rebuilt/repaired if damaged by one of the covered perils.

Each property is reviewed and assessed carefully, which has earned us an A+ rating with AM Best which reviews insurance companies for excellence in service and coverage.

While you make it your forever home, we’ll take care of protecting it.

Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, typically recognized as a superstitious day with unexplainable events and misfortune. However, many fail to realize the rarity and fun facts about this day.

For example, most horror films are released on this day and historically have grossed substantially over initial predictions suggested.

Fittingly, Alfred Hitchcock was born on Friday the 13th.

Every year will have at least one fearful Friday but this year holds two in store for us.

Let us know what you do to ensure a safe and positive day.
