Schwartz Insurance Group Acquires Chelf Insurance Agency
The insurance business is built on relationships and we are pleased to have gained a number of new relationships through the recent acquisition of Chelf Insurance Agency. While we’ve known Floyd Chelf for many years, this decision did not come lightly. He wanted to make sure that his people – both customers and staff – would be well cared for in the future.
Together, we become a better partner for all of our customers. This was a near perfect match, with several common insurance companies, but also many opportunities to improve our offerings. With experienced staff in personal and business insurance, employee benefits, financial services (life, disability, retirement) and professional liability and medical malpractice, all our customers win.
As Floyd noted in a client letter, we now offer “additional competitive options, greater negotiating power and continued personal service.” A larger volume of business is becoming more and more important, especially as consumers complain that “I pay too much for my insurance” or “I need you to solve my problems.” It is gratifying to be in a better position to help.
The entire staff (Floyd included!) joined us in our offices, in the same building at 2950 Breckenridge Lane in Louisville. Jack, Jackie and Charlie are quickly learning about the 10 competitive personal insurance options now available through Schwartz Insurance Group. They remain available to answer insurance coverage questions, make changes to existing policies, assist with claims service and of course, find the lowest prices on automobile, homeowners and other personal insurance. We are happy to have them on our team!
By the way, Floyd remains active as well – in fact, in the past few days, we’ve heard him counseling clients about claims related to the hail storms and how to save a little more money on their insurance. So, yes, you can still come by and see Floyd in the office most mornings! Lisa Burns – our “director of first impressions” – has already welcomed a number of Chelf clients to our offices and as everyone who’s visited before knows, she looks forward to greeting you!
From a business perspective, this is an exciting time for Schwartz Insurance Group, as we add new staff who believe in our mission to cultivate trusted relationships – let us know if we can help you with a free coverage review. When was the last time you reviewed YOUR personal insurance? It’s been how long?! Make sure you know what you’re protected for, in advance … and only spend what you need to spend.
