Sharon Mathis Helps Families Get Affordable Insurance
Sharon Mathis, CEO of Insurance Associates Atlanta, loves to help people. She works with the non-profit organization, Empowering Minds, Inc., which introduces young teens to a corporate environment. However, it’s not teens alone she’s looking to educate. She also enjoys helping families find affordable insurance and educating them at the same time.
What’s the number one mistake people make when purchasing insurance? “Being in a hurry,” states Sharon, who has 33 years of experience in the insurance business. “After all, buying a home or a car are the biggest investments people make, yet many people don’t take the time to do research or sit down with their agent and dissect and take apart their policy to make sure they have good coverage.”
In order to save on insurance, you must first understand the basics of coverage and where you might be exposed or vulnerable. For example, some people who are simply looking for the cheapest price, raise their deductible. But they should stop and consider: If they raise their car insurance deductible from $1000 to $2500, can they really afford to pay that amount to get their car out of the shop?
Insurance Associates Atlanta takes time to do a detailed interview with clients and answer any questions to make sure insurance needs are met. She adds that it’s okay to get a second opinion – just like you would for a health problem. “We encourage people to call even if it’s just to review their policy,” she says.
Insurance is like a crossword puzzle – Sharon’s favorite hobby. When the policies all fit together, you’ll feel the satisfaction and peace of mind that comes from completing the puzzle. However, a lack of familiarity with all or any one of the pieces could be disastrous.
