Protecting your home with a Homeowners Insurance policy is a wise investment.

Your home is more than four walls and a roof. Inside those walls are possessions and little details that tell visitors who you are, where you’ve been, and what you treasure most.

For many families, a home can be your biggest investment, containing much of your net worth. Protecting your investment can give you financial security. As your investment grows, you want to be sure the coverage you purchase will meet your changing needs. Our local insurance professionals are here to work with you to help keep your home protected.



Homeowners Insurance is about financially protecting yourself against the unexpected.

Protect yourself against the unexpected.

  • If your home was destroyed by a fire, you would need money to replace it and satisfy your mortgage obligation.

  • If a guest or stranger was injured while on your property, you would be responsible for paying damages and medical expenses.

  • If a tree fell on your garage, it could cost thousands of dollars to make the necessary repairs.

You don't want any surprises when you file a claim. You want financial restitution for a covered loss that you have been paying a premium for. Having a local independent insurance agent who will explain your options and what is and isn't covered, can put you in a favorable financial position when a claim occurs.

Did you know it doesn’t cost you more money to work with an independent insurance agency?

Valuable personal property protection from The Richards Group.jpg

Valuable personal property should be scheduled separately on your policy.

The traditional homeowners insurance contract places a limit on the amount a company will pay for loss of some types of valuable personal property, such as jewelry, coins and collectibles. Scheduling the items separately on the policy will provide the broadest financial protection.
