Homeowners Insurance & Other Valuables
From the Rooftop to the Kitchen Range
A standard homeowners insurance policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it. It’s typically a package policy, which means it covers both damage to your property and your liability, or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people.
WE’LL HELP YOU PROTECT YOUR:
- Houses, condos, apartments
- High-valued homes
- Secondary and seasonal homes
- Rental properties
- Airbnb and Short-Term Rentals
Nothing says “I love you” like a sparkling diamond necklace or a designer watch. In the event of a loss, nothing causes more heartache than learning that you’re underinsured.
PROTECT THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE, SUCH AS:
It’s true that standard homeowners, condominium and renter’s insurance policies include a limited amount of coverage for jewelry and other valuable items. However, many policies limit the dollar amount of coverage for the theft or loss. To properly insure the value of a portrait or an heirloom stamp collection, consider purchasing additional coverage.
Our coverage options are both affordable and easy to arrange.
Auto, Watercraft & Recreational Vehicle Insurance
Trying to make sense of your automobile policy coverage options and the limits that you need?
An automobile insurance policy is designed to provide you with a level of protection against property, liability and medical costs if you are involved in an accident.
- Property coverage pays for damage to or theft of your car
- Liability coverage pays for your legal responsibility to others for bodily injury or property damage
- Medical coverage pays for the cost of treating injuries, rehabilitation, and sometimes lost wages and funeral expenses
Selecting the right automobile policy coverages, deductibles, and limits now ensures that you won’t be surprised by any bumps in the road should a loss occur tomorrow.
WE’LL HELP WITH COVERAGE FOR:
- Private passenger vehicles
- Collector vehicles
- Specialty sports cars
- Roadside assistance

Are you certain your current liability insurance offers you enough protection?
Accidents happen—and it’s not uncommon for jury awards and out-of-court settlements to run into the millions of dollars. While it’s difficult to pinpoint the monetary consequences of the risks you and your family take each day, are you certain your current liability insurance offers you enough protection?
FOR EXAMPLE, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
- Your teenager runs a stop sign, causing a serious accident
- A deliveryman falls on your sidewalk and is seriously injured
- A babysitter is injured by your otherwise friendly dog
If you are found to be legally responsible for injuring someone or damaging their property, without a personal umbrella liability insurance policy, anything beyond the limits of your standard liability insurance coverage will come out of your own pocket.
Standard liability insurance generally includes homeowners, renters, auto, and watercraft policies. Like an umbrella that protects you from the rain, a personal umbrella liability policy provides an extra layer of insurance coverage over your standard liability policies to protect you when your standard coverage is exhausted.
Who Needs an Umbrella Liability Policy?
You do! Contrary to popular belief, umbrella liability policies are not just for the wealthy. We recommend that everyone consider carrying an umbrella policy. If you engage in a high-risk activity or hobby that increases your odds of getting sued (such as having a teenage driver, owning a swimming pool, or entertaining frequently), it is wise to supplement your insurance with a personal umbrella liability policy.
