Met with her and turns out her pricing was much better that my current carrier and she saved me $1200 a year.
If you need homeowners insurance, consider asking a title co.
Check the agencies out. Research them online or read business rating directories. If you find bad reviews, cross them off your list.
Check the agents out. Ask your government's insurance regulatory agency if these agents actually are licensed to practice in your area. Look at their professional designations, professional accreditations, & the professional boards to which they belong.
Then, interview them. Schedule face-to-face meetings to see if they'll meet all your insurance needs. Determine the agent's knowledge. Find out if you both have good rapport, & if he can explain things well to you at a level you comfortably can understand. Check out his fees.
Find out his experience & whether he has a proven history.
I met my agent when he was going out of his way to help an elderly lady whose house had been destroyed by a fallen tree. His knowledge, compassion & energy impressed me.
