Insuring Against the Risks of Business

“If you don’t take risks, you’ll have a wasted soul.”    Drew Barrymore

Everybody should take risks. You don’t want to have a wasted soul. However, you do not want to risk not having enough insurance to cover unexpected losses.

One of La Crescenta’s leading independent insurance agencies, Crescenta Valley Insurance (CVI), provides comprehensive insurance coverage for Southern California businesses, families and individuals. Whether you need an affordable automobile insurance quote or a more specific business/commercial insurance quote, Crescenta Valley Insurance consistently offers you the highest quality coverage and protection available. Their experienced agents will take the time to accurately determine your insurance needs or risks to ensure your assets are protected – all at competitive rates.

I asked one of their agents about what CVI is all about and what she thinks about her career. Holly Heurkins has been an agent with CVI since April 1, 2005.

I asked Holly the following questions:

What are you known for or what is your specialty? “Personal touch! Insurance is just insurance but it is how you provide the service that really matters!”

What do you like most about what you do? “Giving the best product for a competitive rate and watching you leave my office satisfied. I like to be the insurance agent that you want to do business with because I bring quality service along with a personal touch for my clients.”

What continues to set you apart from your competition? “I have several carriers for many lines of insurance. Not every business or individual is a cookie cutter of another. I am glad I have many options for my clients.”

What is your biggest challenge? “My biggest challenge is rate increases from my insurance companies.”

What has been something interesting that has happened to you as a business owner or what was your most favorite client? “I was very happy when I switched a client over to a PPO insurance plan just a few months before they were diagnosed with a catastrophic illness. It made me feel better to know they had better coverage in a very difficult time.”

You can get this same personal, expert care in regards to your insurance needs from Holly Heurkins of Crescenta Valley Insurance at (818) 249-9754, a local insurance agent with a personal touch.
