When it comes to saving money, reviewing your insurance may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Dennis Cliff of Cliff Insurance Agency thinks differently. Insurance is one of those things that most people set and forget. But, there are often opportunities to save, or increase coverage if your situation has changed. Even during this time of social distancing, Dennis and his team can help you evaluate your options.
Dennis got into insurance after a family member had worked in the industry. He felt it could be a good fit for himself. Dennis purchased the former Wilson-Boylan Agency in 2003, after working for a decade at MetLife.
When it comes to insurance, the sweet spot is finding the best coverage at a reasonable cost. Cliff Insurance Agency makes sure you are covered if you have a loss on your home - like a fire, tornado, or theft. Even if your home is vacant and listed for sale, they can still get insurance for you.
When you’re buying a home, insurance coverage is something you need to consider right away. This can be a daunting task, but the team at Cliff Insurance Agency does the shopping around for you. They work with over 20 insurance companies to find the best insurance coverage based on their clients needs. This frees you up for all of the other tasks related to moving into your new home.
If something happens and you need to file a claim, they make it easy for you to get the problem fixed and will walk you through the process. Having a local partner to assist with your insurance needs can be a big stress reliever.
In addition to homeowners insurance, they can work with you on all of your insurance needs including auto insurance, life insurance, flood insurance, and more. Cliff Insurance Agency also provides a variety of business insurance options. As an independent insurance agency, they are able to offer their customers many coverage options to choose from.
Mad City Dream Homes REALTOR Dan Miller recently worked with Dennis to review his own policies and said, “working with Cliff Insurance Agency has been a very positive experience for me and my family. Dennis reviewed my current policies, identified some gaps, and signed me up with a new insurance carrier that offered more coverage and for a lower price. Dennis answered all of my questions quickly and even met with me in person to go over our new policies."
For Dennis, one of the most important and rewarding parts of his job is saving his clients money. “I love to see it when we can save someone a large amount of money all while giving them better coverage. I have seen people starting crying after seeing the amount of savings,” says Dennis. He continues, “It means a lot when we have an older client on a fixed income come in and we’re able to save them hundreds of dollars.”
Dennis doesn’t stop at saving his clients money, he is also very involved in the local community. He is part of 100 Men of Dane County, which gives $100,000 in grants each quarter to help kids in Dane County. “I did not have the best childhood and I want to help kids so they never experience some of the stuff I did. I have been lucky in my adult life and I want to help as much as I can,” said Dennis.
Cliff Insurance Agency is committed to offering their customers great service. While they are not currently inviting clients into the office, they can help you out over the phone. They answer phones when you call and never send you through a phone tree when you’re trying to get help. They focus on answering your questions quickly and accurately.
