COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE INSURANCE

How to Pick The RIGHT Insurance Agent

Getting smart commercial real estate insurance for the best price takes the right advisor.

Most insurance companies are scared of the risk that comes with large commercial properties. Other options offer bad coverage for a high price.  There are great policies out there but a skilled connected advisor is the key to accessing the best ones for the best price..

Here's how to pick the right advisor for your investing team:

real estate insurance advice

1. Commit to a Relationship

Shopping with 5 agents is a huge mistake. It's just not how the system works best. Good agents will make companies fight for your business. If there a multiple agents try to make the same companies battle it actually makes the companies LESS motivated to bring their best price. You win in a variety of ways when you establish a relationship.

2. Expect Clear Pressure-free Communication

Every member of your investing team should be a clear communicator. If you leave conversations more confused than when they started, find someone else.  

Avoid pushy sales people.  Just like in all things, if an agent is hard selling you, there are likely issues with what they're offering.

3. Choose an Independent Agent

Independent agents have access to a wide range of companies and make them compete for your business. This means a better price for quality coverage. They can also advocate for you in a claim, switch companies if price goes up, and advise you in a way a company employee can't.

4. Go with a Commercial Real Estate Specialist

Let’s be real. When you go to any insurance agent and say, “I’ve got a 144 unit apartment, could you give me a quote”, they start to salivate. It’s a big opportunity. But you wouldn't invest with a rookie taking down a 144 unit solo, so why would you let a rookie protect yours.  Expertise is key.  Specialized connections with the right companies is too.   The best options for commercial real estate are only available through specialists.

5. Ask How Service Works

Many agents will sell a policy and then pass you off to a service center that has no connection to you (or them) at all. Make sure the person you build a connection with will be an integral part of your experience throughout your relationship.

THE REALITY

80% of real estate investors have insurance that will fail them when it matters most.

Insurance should protect you from financial ruin. But there are good options & bad ones.  SO MANY investors buy bad ones because.... well.... it's really hard to tell the difference.

Even veteran investors fall into the cheapest price trap.  

That's why 4 out of 5 policies fail when they're needed most.

Real estate is all about connections and team. I’d honestly never seen my insurance agent as an integral part of that until my broker introduced me to Shine.

EXCELLENT Customer service from Shine. As always!

As soon as I notified Shine about the claim, they told me what steps to take next, and checked with me several times along the way to see how
things were going; more follow up than I have ever had on an insurance claim before, and that's a good thing!

RICK POWELL

From the very moment I filed the claim, the service from both Shine & the company was outstanding. Shine took the time to stay in contact with me throughout the entire process & even after to make sure that everything was going well & the job was
completed to my satisfaction.

I appreciate that I can call a couple of times of year to check in on what kind of coverage I have and whether I need to alter or upgrade anything. In these conversations I never feel rushed and I get jargon-free answers that make real world sense.
