What do you love MOST about being in the Insurance Industry?
Tim: “Growing up in the industry I always enjoyed the relationship with our clients as well as educating. To me, developing a relationship based on trust and knowledge, is what separates us from everyone else.”
What’s a stigma about the insurance industry you would like to change?
Tim: “Ethics and Apathy. The insurance industry for years has suffered from poor ethics and the overall apathetic approach to service leading to a poor taste in the mouth of the consumer. At Schwab Insurance, we make it a point to put the needs of our clients FIRST, and by doing this we are of a select few that bring value to an industry better known for poor experience than the good one.”
