Insurance is another offering we have to make the client experience great.
The last few months, we’ve been talking about the ancillary products that we offer to make the client experience that much better. These include our real estate services of buying, selling, and investing; our wide variety of mortgage loans and refinancing options; and our down payment assistance to help buyers. However, my favorite is our insurance.
Today I have a special guest, Jeremy Muldrow. We call him Dr. Insurance. He’s our agent in charge of We Insure Carolina. Here are three reasons why you should give us an opportunity to quote your insurance:
We Insure Carolina is actually a brokerage. That means we have access to over 350 carriers.
We work for you, not the insurance companies.
If you have it, we can insure it. That includes business, primary and secondary homes, auto, RV, life, and health.
Here are three big advantages of in-housemortgage services.
In our industry, the biggest issue is always communication. That’s why we brought our mortgage services in-house; this way, you always know your agent and your lender are on the same page. Today we’re talking with “Closing-day K”, our new loan officer for our mortgage division, about three benefits to using an in-house lender:
“Everyone is busy; that’s why we work around your schedule.”
1. We offer a personalized experience that fits your schedule. A lot of big-box lenders are open from nine to five, but that doesn’t work for everyone. We will work weekends and around your needs to make sure everything gets done on time.
2. We will shop around for you. Everyone’s busy; the last thing you want to do is shop around for the best lender. We have many great local lenders in our portfolio, and we get you the best deal possible by making them compete for your business.
3. We will advocate for you during the process. This is like bringing a mechanic to a used car lot. We know exactly what lenders are looking for, so we know all the tricks to get you a fantastic deal.
If you have any questions about our new mortgage division or how K can help you, please call or email us. We’ll see you at the closing table!
Today I want to highlight one of my favorite places to eat in the Charlotte area that’s sure to have something you like, whatever you’re into: Optimist Hall.
Located just past Uptown near North Davidson, Optimist Hall is the Charlotte area’s newest and largest food hall, with fantastic indoor and outdoor seating and complimentary Wi-Fi. It’s a great place to focus yourself on the work week ahead or gather with friends for happy hour or brunch.
Optimist Hall has 21 different food and drink stalls with every type of food you or your family could ever imagine. If you’re obsessed with sushi but the rest of your family isn’t, don’t worry—here, you can get some of the best sushi around while your family visits the taco stalls.
If you’re trying to find a quiet place to work, you can start your day by coming here when Undercurrent Coffee opens at 7 a.m. Then you can work hard until lunch and come and take a well-deserved break with some delicious Mexican food and duckpin bowling at el Thrifty. (el Thrifty is where our company had our Christmas party last year, and I have to say that it was awesome. They had golf simulators, basketball, shuffleboard, and even Pong!) Then you can finish your day strong before clocking out at five to enjoy a local North Carolina beer from Fonta Flora or a fancy cocktail at Billy Sunday’s.
Optimist Hall has it all.
If for some crazy reason you decided to eat before you came here, you can work up an appetite by checking out some of the local vendors who aren’t focused on food. For example, there’s a beautiful paper store called Archer Paper Goods that can inspire anyone to pick up journaling, or at least give you a good chuckle while browning their hand-printed cards section. Also, be sure to check out the latest addition to Optimist Hall, Paradisio, which is a plant paradise for anyone who has or aspires to have a green thumb.
As you can see, Optimist Hall has it all. I personally love coming here; I make a stop at least once a week, and I highly recommend that you check it out.
If you have any questions about real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d love to help you. Happy Thanksgiving!
I’m finally sharing the secret that we’ve been keeping for 10 months!
Today I’m eager to discuss something we’ve been keeping secret for 10 months. The main issue we have in real estate is communication, and it’s always been that way. Communication with the lender, home insurance company, the title insurance agency, the attorney, and everyone else involved can be a mess because there are so many different pieces to the transaction. So we’ve decided to bring it all in-house, and that’s what we’ve been working on for the past 10 months.
We’ve started a new insurance division, We Insure The Carolinas, and also a mortgage division, Closing Table Mortgage. That means we can control the process and client experience much better. For example, often, getting a home insurance quote could take two to three days. However, with We Insure The Carolinas, we can quote you a home insurance premium and coverage in three minutes. We have 350 carriers to choose from, and we’re licensed in all 50 states.
Soon, I’ll be interviewing our agent in charge, Jeremy Muldrow, in a video so you can see firsthand how your experience will be better. We offer insurance for titles, homeowners, autos, boats, motorcycles, and businesses. Our objective was to make your experience much better by having everything in-house, offering a full-service brokerage along with insurance, a mortgage company, and controlling the buying and selling sides. You’re going to love it.
Thank you for continuing to support us; we appreciate you so much. If you have any questions about our new services or real estate in general, call or email us. We would love to help you.
