First American Specialty

Has anyone had experience with them in California? How hard is it to get an appointment with them? How is writing business with them? Are they easy or difficult to work with?


I see that they have really competitive rates for homes in Socal
Thanks in advance.

Re: QQEvolution AMS ???

I'm looking to switch to a new agency management system too and looking for affordable recommendations.

Really frustrated with the current one because we can't even use it.

Thanks

Re: Insurance Noodle vs. Superior Access vs. Agent Secure

I've tried all 3 and I think that Insurance Noodle is the best for Commercial Lines by far. Their turn around times are super fast and great customer service. Their staff are really knowledgeable.

Did you check with Mercury? Mercury has a program for select agents. Not sure about Florida though.

Re: Service Center

Has anyone recently switched to using a service center? If so, how did it go? Or, has anyone used a service center and then gone back to servicing your clients directly?

Lessors Risk for Bar in California?

I have a client that owns a commercial building. The owner of the building leases it out to a bar. Do you have any recommendations for this type of a risk?

Thank you in advance.

Re: CPCU - Worth it right now?

CPCU is one of the most respected designations in the P&C businesss. If you think you can commit to study the materials and pass the tests, then I would recommend it. I'm sure it will help you greatly in the long run.

How much does it normally cost? Can you usually do it at a self-pace?
