Krista Wilson is super duper awesome! She got everything done in a timely manner and I am so impressed with her customer service. I've dealt with the run around with other insurance brokers and she was straight to the point. Thanks Krista 😀

I was at my wits end with my previous insurance broker as I got 3 business day notice before my policy (which is suppose to automatically renew) was no longer offered with my current insurance broker. So my rates have tripled and they just wanted me to settle with my new policy and didn't help me get a lower rate with another insurance company. Krista Wilson with Leibel was a breath of fresh air she was super helpful, quick and found me the best rate that almost matched my current rate and she even assisted me letting me know the paperwork I needed to find to get an even lower rate. You can tell she really loves and enjoys her job and helping people out.

I recently purchased my commercial van Insurance through Leibel Insurance Group. I was helped by Monique Bradley. I usually don't write much reviews, But her service inspired me to go and write a comment as people like her needs to be appreciated because I believe she stands out in her skills. She was very knowledgeable, she listened to me very carefully and understood very clearly what I wasnt in my policy and then tailored it with perfection. Therefore I highly recommend Leibel Insurance group and especially to ask for Monique Bradley... Cheers!!!!!

Dealing with Krista was fantastic!! I called in on behalf of my mother in law with hopes of getting her insured. Krista was attentive and on top of it all. She was thorough, kind and courteous from beginning to end. She replys quickly to your questions via email or phone. She was busy at a convention, left so that she could help us with finalizing our policy. Thank you Krista for all of your. Come January, I will be contacting Krista directly to obtain a policy of my own.

Monique at LIG has been more than helpful and polite on every occasion/interaction. I've never had such exceptional service. She is extremely organized, punctual, and personable. I would recommend Monique to anyone looking for insurance help in a heartbeat.

What to do if you experience a home break in.

Home break inHome invasions can happen at anytime and to anyone. Our last blog we talked about how to prepare your home and yourself for a home break in. Now learn about what happens after a home is broken into and how home insurance claims work.

If you are not home when a break in occurs and you arrive to find your house broken into, do not enter your home immediately. Stay outside where you can safely avoid the burglar. Do not go into the house, the burglar could still be inside and could pose a threat to your safety. Call the police and provide them with details. They will send an officer to inspect the home and deem safe for entry. Until it is safe to do so, do not touch anything, this could disrupt criminal evidence. Once police have confirmed it is safe, if you have pets that were home, ensure that your pets are safe and unharmed.

If you are home when someone breaks into your house, seek a safe location immediately. If possible and safe to do so leave the premises. Avoid the burglar and do not confront or block exits. You cannot be certain whether the intruder has a weapon or not. Safety is your main priority and avoiding violence is imperative.  When you are in a safe location, contact the police to alert them of the intrusion. Stay in a safe location until the police arrive.

Once police have arrived at the scene of the home invasion, a police report will need to be filed and the level of damage can be determined. If you were not home at the time of the break in, you can check with your neighbours to see if they noticed any suspicious activity around your property. If you have a monitored alarm system with cameras, ensure that footage is reviewed and provided to the police for the report. Take note of which items are missing from your home. In our blog which suggests precautions to take against home invasion, we recommended using a camera to take video or pictures of your rooms and belonging for an easy tally of valuables in your home. If the damage done to your home prevents you from staying at your house, ensure that you secure or barricade any doors or windows that were broken during the break in.

Once you have assessed the damage and stolen items, contact your insurance broker to notify them of the break in and to start a claim. Depending on the severity of damage, the size of the claim could mean a localized assessment of damage may be required.

A home invasion can be scary and stressful, we recommend checking with your broker to ensure your home and your valuables have the correct coverage in the event of an incident. This step can add peace of mind knowing you are properly protected if a home invasion where to occur.
