Three Key Considerations When Getting a New Policy

Drawing from his wealth of experience and expertise, Herb shares three critical factors to consider when securing a new insurance policy:

  1. Understand the Fine Print

Before diving into a new policy, Herb stresses the importance of thoroughly reviewing the existing policy. “The first thing we ask for is a copy of the entire policy,” explains Herb. “How can we advise you if we haven’t read all 300 pages?” His approach goes beyond a cursory glance; it involves a deep dive into the intricate details of the policy to uncover any potential gaps or areas of concern. By scrutinizing every clause and provision, he ensures his clients are fully aware of their coverage and any associated limitations or exclusions. 

  1. Prioritize Long-Term Benefits 

Rather than focusing solely on premium costs, Herb prioritizes value over price. “We don’t sell based on price,” says Herb. “We want to come to a fair and reasonable price and earn your business.” He strikes a fine balance between cost-effectiveness and comprehensive coverage, focusing on arriving at a price point that meets his client’s budget and provides adequate protection for their assets. 

  1. Seek Personalized Insurance Strategies 

With his expertise in underwriting and real estate investment, Herb excels in negotiating with underwriters to secure the best coverage and terms for his clients. “I tell my clients’ story to the underwriters to get discounts or explain different scenarios,” says Herb. “It’s much more than just selling a policy; it’s about finding tailored solutions to meet my clients’ needs.” By leveraging his deep understanding of both the insurance industry and the real estate market, he can secure favorable terms and coverage options that align with his client’s goals and priorities.

Building a Vision for the Future

As Cap Asset Risk Management expands its footprint and client base, Herb remains committed to his vision of building a powerful ecosystem within the real estate industry. From hosting networking events to facilitating client retreats, he is dedicated to adding value and fostering meaningful connections among his clients.
