And Now.. Here's the BORING stuff you NEED TO KNOW ! Why?? Because It's YOUR MONEY !
Are insurance companies a business? Do businesses like to retain profit?
Don't you think insurance companies know that you are far too busy to read your policy to understand what you are entitled to? Who has the time... right?
Do you think insurance company adjusters/vendors would have a job if they just gave you everything in your settlement? Why would they be necessary?
Do you know what to do if your claim goes awry... or do you just 'hope for the best?'
Insurance company adjusters work multiple files a month, how do you know that yours is being treated with care? Is your claim just another file that they want to disappear?
If you don't know what exactly what to ask for, why would they tell you and give you more money?

What is a Public Adjuster?
Public Adjusters are licensed by the State to investigate, evaluate and negotiate settlements on behalf of the policyholder. Some states only allow for public adjusters to charge a small commission fee, which gets collected upon receiving settlement. The maximum fee allowed is commonly 10%. This state regulated, commission-fee incentivizes Licensed Public Adjusters to advocate for you at their best; as your success is our success.
Please check with your state department of insurance for your fee limits. The value of a Public Adjuster is commonly greater than the fees that they charge. Public Adjusters handle all of the calls and become the point-of-contact for your claim. A Public Adjuster gets paid once your settlement is negotiated; not upfront.

LightningLightning strikes can cause severe property damage; from causing a fire, to destroying your personal property and business assets.
Anytime there is a powerful surge of electricity through electrical systems or circuits, you can be sure there’s underlying damage.
We’ll advocate for you and tell you what’s covered and what’s not covered under your insurance policy.
FloodIf your house has flooded, once your local police or fire department says you can return, you’re in a race against mold growth to clear out debris from your home.
You may find high humidity in your home, which is the perfect environment for mold and other bacteria to form. Flood water is commonly classified as Category 3, or black water. Understanding the science of black water will only help you reach your appropriate settlement(s).
WindMany home and business owners can see damage to their properties. However, most wind and hail damage cannot be seen. Not having your home properly inspected can result in thousands of dollars in damages over-and-above the damages caused by the storm… and you’ll be out of pocket for those damages by not properly submitting the claim to your insurance company.
MoldSometimes a small leak can turn into a major headache and your insurance policy may or may not cover the leak depending on its source. Mold resulting from flooding, a broken pipe or other water related issue can severly affect your health and property without your knowledge.
We are property experts with more than 80 years of combined experience in handling water damage issues.
HailIf you have experienced hail damage to your home, you know that it can be costly.
An extensive investigation to your real property is necessary, as shingles, siding, and gutters may be damaged. Unseen roof damage can lead to leaks, which can cause further complexities in your insurance claim. Be sure to take pictures of all damages of any dents, punctures or scrapes to the exterior to your home, fences, patios, and other structures. Proper documentation will greatly impact your claim.
EarthquakeIf you have purchased earthquake insurance, your policy typically covers the cost to repair common earthquake damage—including damage to roofing and walls, and most of your belongings.
If you can’t live in your home, your insurance company will pay additional living expenses, as noted in your policy, while the damage is assessed and your home is being repaired or rebuilt. If repairs take longer than the period of time covered by your policy, you may be eligible for additional assistance.
TheftIf you’ve found yourself the victim of vandalism or theft, the first thing you should always do is to file a police report.
Once you’ve done that, its time to call us. Filing a theft insurance claim or a vandalism insurance claim can be tedious, particularly for the average person who isn’t familiar with how the insurance claim process works. We will meet with you, assess the damage, and track the claim with your insurance company.
Contents InventoryOur public adjusters will sort through every inch of your damaged property including personal property searching for anything that the insurance company may have missed. This thorough examination often yields damages that were overlooked or underestimated.
Several digital photos and a 3D Matterport are taken along with detailed notes. Our adjuster deal with all of the forms and related paperwork that are required by your insurance carrier.
FRV/Loss of UseThe fair rental value may or may not be equal to the rent payable by tenants. It can vary according to different factors, such as whether the dwelling has been rented to the tenants furnished or unfurnished, whether bills and taxes are included in the rent amount, and whether you provide the total lodging to the tenants. In a nutshell, the actual cash value of the property you rent out is determined by the amount of support you provide.
Business InterruptionOne of the most daunting moments for an enterprise is when it loses income due to various interruptions. When the normal flow of income in a business is interfered with, it predisposes a myriad of problems which can be detrimental and relatively expensive.
As expert public adjusters, we will help your business get back onto its feet within the minimum time possible by expediting the entire process, and bargaining for fair compensation of our clients, per the terms in your policy.
CollapseBuilding collapses can be caused by a number of factors, including (but not limited to) structural problems, soil subsidence, earth movements, improper construction, blasts, gas leaks and more.
Property insurance policies typically cover some types of building collapses, but not all. Insurance companies today frequently restrict collapse coverage by redefining the term “collapse” and limiting their exposure.
