Ask Me About:

After the large fires in California the past few years, there are areas where some Insurance Companies are no longer going to insure homes. This becomes a problem if you purchase a home in one of these areas or if the company you currently insure with decides to non-renew the policies they have in these same areas.

This can create some anxiety but I want to tell you that you can still get coverage. Depending on your home’s location you might even have some options. So if you are facing non-renewal or the home you have fallen in love with and would like to buy sits in one of the high Fire Line areas, give me a call at (805)985-5488 and we can discuss your options.
A recent trend is people selling their home and moving into an RV of some kind, then taking their lives on the road. This is an exciting adventure, but there are several coverages on an RV policy that require your attention if you abandon your home or apartment as your place of abode. The first is covering your stuff, like computers, other electronic devices, and clothing. The standard RV policy might have minimal coverage for these items so if you want it all to be covered in the event it is stolen, damaged in an accident, or other mishap, you will need to make certain you have enough Personal Property coverage.

You also need to make clear to your agent that you plan to live in the RV rather than using it occasionally for a vacation. This is a little different exposure and you don’t want a claim denied based on a misrepresentation of the RV’s use. By rating the RV as a live in, this opens up the availability of Personal Liability and Medical Payments coverage which are common coverage on a Homeowners or Renters policy. There are events which can happen when the RV is stationary that you could be liable for, so these coverages would protect you financially.

So, if you’re taking your life on the road and have questions about protecting yourself, call me, (805)985-5488 or shoot me an email,

This blog is about something that we don’t want to think about even though it is important to think about when planning for your family’s financial future. It is about Life Insurance.

I lost my kid brother a few months ago. He was 57 years old. His life was running along great; perfect family; been a Ventura County Fireman for 20+ years; looking forward to retirement. A few years back during a routine physical he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Last month it got the best of him and it has been tough for his wife, kids, grandkids, and his extended family as we have all been close.

It is difficult to see any bright spots in these circumstances but something I am thankful for is that my brother bought life insurance 20+ years ago. He thought ahead and made sure that in the event the unthinkable happened, those he loved and cared for did not have to scramble around to figure out what to do. The family home is still in the family. The bills still get paid.

So please take some time to look at how you have prepared for your family in the event of your death. If you think you may have some holes in your plan or you have no plan at all, please give me a call, 805-985-5488 and we can help you figure out what works best for you and your circumstances. Of all the claims I get involved in, none give me greater satisfaction than giving the family who has lost someone they love, the life insurance proceeds to help them financially carry on with their lives.

This past year has opened the door for more people to work from their homes. And while there may be some benefits, ie, less miles driven on your car, less money on a professional wardrobe, this has created some potential GAPS in your insurance coverage.

One is regarding your Homeowner’s or Renter’s insurance. In the event of a liability or property damage loss from your home office, you won’t necessarily have coverage. You need to have this activity endorsed onto your policy, and the good news is, in some cases it won’t cost you more than you are currently paying.

If you have found yourself working from your home these days and have questions about your individual circumstances, give me a call at (805)985-5488 or shoot me an email at

Starting and running a small business is an exciting adventure. After getting everything set up, you then have to work on getting the phone to ring or people to come in the door so you can make a sale. Cash flow is your business’ lifeblood and to help protect it, you need to be certain you have the proper insurance coverage. Most Landlords will require you to have General Liability per your lease agreement. But what about the loss of inventory due to a fire or water pipe burst that starts in another part of the building? Or what about being out of business while repairs are made to the building? Coverage for inventory, business equipment or tools, and business interruption are only a few of the things to consider when insuring your business.

If uncertain about what exact coverage you have, get your policy out and have a look. If you have any questions with the “insurance speak”, feel free to give me a call. (805)985-5488
