Jingle Bell Time is a Swell Time to Keep the House OKay
The holidays are the time to break out the ugly sweaters, enjoy our friends and family, and find alternative uses for Aunt Frannie’s Fruitcake (doorstop, hammer, weightlifting, etc.) But before any of the festivities begin, the decorations come out of storage.
Winterizing Your Home
As the temperatures drop and winter weather approaches, it’s time to think about preparing your home for the season. Winterizing your home doesn’t have to be an expensive process, and doesn’t necessarily require an extensive amount of work.
Santa Rosa in the Wake of the Wildfire
As the sun set on California’s coast the night of October 8th, flames rose in Calistoga in what would become the most devastating wildfire in the state’s history. Winds whipped power lines down, causing sparks to fly across the dry hills of the area.
Habitat Build 2017
This past weekend our team once again took a Saturday to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, rather than relax by the pool or work on chores around our own homes. Half of our team arrived in the morning at 9:00 a.m. and met with the Executive Director of the Dekalb County chapter of Habitat, Bob Boyd.
5 Steps to The Perfect Move Out

1. Use a Checklist

Most apartments and vacation rentals will supply you with a move in/move out checklist. This is often the same checklist managers use when inspecting a unit post move out. Walk through your new home before moving furniture in and look for any damage to the interior and exterior. Take pictures with your smart phone and save them in a specific album on your phone so they’re easy to find. It’s a good idea to make note of any preexisting damages and report them to the landlord.

2. Read Your Lease

The Future of Claim Handling Performance

The home insurance industry is rapidly changing. New efforts toward damage prevention are becoming more and more important to both adjusters and policyholders. Strengthening homes minimizes the potential for damage and is the only way to decrease the loss of property and life. In 2015 the federal government introduced the idea of the “Disaster Savings Account.” While this bill has stagnated, state governments, communities, and insurance carriers are still pushing for preparedness. Climate shifts bring new and unusual storm patterns to our shores.
