We had a leak in rear shower that was allowing water to slip into subflooring and joists. Various repair men had said nothing under there. Astro termite company inspections each year said 'normal', 'no problem'. The appraiser said the problem had to be more than a year old.
From the start

was professional getting documentation. Many companies pay little on and 'old' problem. I have not been able to crawl or get under the house because of orthopedic problems for years. We trusted Astro. to do their job.
We had evidence that in the past, anything needing repair or upgrade in the structure we addressed even if we needed loans.

realized that we had trusted the paid professional who had either lied or not really crawled under the entire structure.
So, their clause 'unwitnessed and unknown' was fulfilled and they are helping us with costs. We have had to move out for 3 months to gut the home and they have given us a per

Our total damages will be around 80,000 to repair and then replace as it was.

has committed to a third of that so far pending final details.
My suggestion to home owners. TODAY take pictures of everything and under the foundation. Keep detailed notes of any upgrades or repairs you make for tax and insurance purposes. keep copies of any official inspections by anyone of your attic, basement, walls. Get an official printout and opinion of your Flood Plain status online.
One challenge: The contractors are doing very good work, the city is keeping them up to code, but they are horrible about keeping a clear separation of their receipts for us and other work. We might have been able to close our with

The provider is an unethical insurance broker who refuses to call people back. All the good con artists' love to blame everyone else.

Zavagno will tell you every lie in the book to avoid the truth. This guy is unethical 101. Be a man

He was fantastic. Was
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
on the spot with all contact, returning calls, going to site (which was quite a drive for him). Meeting with contractors, dealing with the insurance company so we didn't have to, etc. Extremely happy with his service, would highly recommend him.

After 40 years with State Farm my rates went up too much (even though I had NO claims in over 10 years) and I needed to start shopping around for new coverage. After seeing positive Angie's reviews on the

Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
agency I contacted them to get some quotes.
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
did an outstanding job of checking providers and sending me a new package of policies that saved me over $600 from what State Farm was charging for the same coverage.
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
is a great guy, very professional, explained various coverage options and didn't try to pressure me to take any options that I said I wasn't interested in. He just laid out the options and I made the decisions. Very helpful, very professional. I will continue to use

We proceeded and paid for the clean up $2,382.17, repair to the leak in the pipe $185.00, the new carpet and vinyl $2,545.00, plus many small miscellaneous items $225.55.
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
paid NOTHING. The agent told me that she inspected her pipes every year - with x-

vision I assume. There was no way we could detect the leak in the wall. Over the 20 years or so we were with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
, the agent made no recommendations to us as to how we could improve our coverage. We were extremely underinsured. We never made a claim for a loss. We assumed that the policy covered the losses such as water damage. In our opinion, one is not in good hands with

I have been with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
for over two years now. In that two years my insurance cost have dropped from $247 MONTHLY for Liability to $110 for maximum full coverage and renters combined. They continuously work for you the customer to make sure you have the best coverage for the best price, and they always make sure that things that are important to me are covered. If all that alone doesn't say what an awesome company they are the customer service will have you sold! From the very first interaction my agent has worked above and beyond the call of duty. My coverage was about to end with my prior company and my agent with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
stayed super late to make sure everything was finalized and complete and I was indeed covered before the next day. Any time I have a question or need something explained or for any reason I need to call, I call the office and I get to talk to a real person! That right there is the greatest thing in a world full of automated systems. All emails are also responded to in timely manner.
I strongly recommend working with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
for any and all of your insurance needs.

Had my homeowners policy cancelled in
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
2012. Bought through them a very expensive coverage while I fixed
the roof and peeling paint on the south side. That was done last summer (2013). Sent the agent photos,
no attempt to get me a better coverage. Said I needed to fence off a pond that is 19 inches deep....More /> Decided to paint some more of the house early this summer(2014) and the agent used that totry to railroad me into a
second year of the high premium coverage. Here are the emails, watch the dates.

Subject: RE: Home policy renewal
Good Morning XXXXX, since you’ve got more work in progress, let’s do this.
I will send you the renewal application for your signature (attached).
I need just the signature pages so if you are able to print then scan &
email or fax that is best or I can mail the package to you by USPS-
let me know what works for you. The renewal date is 6/12, so if you get
the painting work done by ~ 6/1, I can look at other options beside
renewing the existing policy. You may send me the pictures when the
painting work is done. If you are able to capture two sides by shooting
from a corner and the two more sides from the opposite corner,
that would be sufficient. I think that just one photo of the fenced
garden pond is enough as well.

XXXXX, here is the renewal offer on the existing
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
policy. After checking with
an underwriter, I am sure that I could not get a different policy issued with
Travelers (your current auto insurance company) or others, until you get the
exterior painting finished and the yard picked up. They are all pretty tough on
property inspections right now.
I have all of the binding requirements from you with the exception of the
renewal premium payment. Please send you payment of $1,719.36 made to Humble &
Davenport Insurance Brokers, Inc. to my office as soon as you are able.
Let me know if you have any questions,
Thanks,
XXXXX | Account Executive
Then he sends a policy for a "log-cabin (built with solid logs) with carpeted floors and painted walls."
My house is build on a frame, has wodden floors throughout and wood paneled walls.
Incompetent and dishonest? I think so!

failed to provide insurance coverage as requested during remodel project. They failed to follow-up on request for added insurance thus learning after the fact that the added insurance requested for the remodel phase was not provided.
We did not discover of the failure to provide added insurance during the remodel phase until nearly a year later when we requested added insurance coverage for new addition.
During the new additon phase were told that because of the size of the addtion the underwriters would most likely want to do and inspection of the property.
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
failed to inform us whether the inspection was completed or if we had the added coverage or not only to bill us near the end of our policy period.
Upon our inquiry we were told "the coverage sheet was from the actual Auto Owners website" which we never knew about.
The only good news dealing with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
was we didn't need the insurance...the bad news was we really didn't for the most part know we had coverage.
Upon filing an appeal letter to
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
and Auto Owner their ONLY response was to submit payment request to a collection agency threating our credit status.

The sewer line inside my house broke causing massive amounts of water damage and stench. I was put in contact with
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
a public adjuster from
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
who was excellent. This is the first time I used a public adjuster so I was unsure of how the process works.
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
was very polite and responsive , like I said this was the first time I used a public adjuster so I called him several times and he was very helpful and kept me informed regarding the status. He had the restoration guys come within hours to clean up the mess and smell. Estimates and all the phone calls were handled by
Van Buren Insurance Agents Provider Name Locked
. I originally thought the percentage he charged was a bit high however he got me twice the amount of money I was expecting so it worked out in my favor. All in all I am extremely happy with Tri State Public adjusters make sure you ask for

he was excellent! .

The service was fantastic. My husband and I are so pleased to be working with Herb.
We recently purchased and home and wanted to bundle our auto and home insurance into one. We contacted Herb who was professional and provided the right level of education. Some of the other agencies we compared, did not answer our questions to the full extent and some did not even call us back. Herb is extremely responsive and looks out for our best interest.
There was a "miscalculation" in our home mortgage paperwork that another party was trying to ask us to pay, however, Herb worked with them to ensure that the miscalculation was trued up by the responsible party.
We look forward to continue to work with Herb in the future and recommend his services to anyone with the need for insurance. Thank you, Herb!
