Guide to Finding a Trustworthy Home Insurance Agent Published

Chicago, IL (PressExposure) August 09, 2009 -- /1888PressRelease/ When it comes to getting proper insurance, half the battle is finding the right insurance agent for the job. An insurance agent that you can trust unequivocally can feel like a rare commodity. As the responsible consumer knows, drawing up insurance policies to protect ourselves, our financial assets and our future are a part of life. And the responsibility of drafting those insurance policies should never be put into an insurance agent you simply settled for, according to a recent article on

“You need to feel comfortable with the agency and your insurance agent,” encourages the article, ‘Home Insurance Agent: Friend or Foe?’ “Ask for references. Your agent is your principal contact for ensuring your coverage is there when you need and provides what you need.”

Policyholders should get proactive about finding the right policy and the right agent. If you’re looking for answers, ask the right questions.

“Compare, question, and be sure about your selection, because you'll have the peace of mind of talking to an agent before deciding to buy the policy,” according to the article.

To find the right insurance agent, policyholders should start by asking family, friends, coworkers, etc., because people who know you and your needs and/or are in similar financial situations and lifestyles may be able to recommend someone who better fits your needs.

Tax preparers, financial planners, accountants or lawyers (if you have any of these) may be more aware of your assets and financial situation and may also have someone they would like to recommend to you, so don’t be afraid to ask.

When searching for insurance quotes, you will be contacted by several insurance agents offering their best rate. Conduct an informal interview with the agent offering, to get a feel for whether or not an agent is a good fit.

But no matter what, says the article, do not settle on just any agent and assume he or she is trustworthy, or will be there for you when there is an emergency.

“When you purchase an insurance policy, you put your faith in the agency and the insurance provider. You're trusting that they will take care of you when you need it. Don't you want to know you can trust your agent?”
