3 Reasons Why Owners Switch Their Brownstone Insurance Policy

A version of this article was first published by Brownstoner.

Owning a brownstone or multifamily townhouse building has its share of stress — various repair requests being chief among them. But having the proper insurance coverage can mitigate many of these stressors. Here are three factors townhouse owners consider when deciding on an insurance carrier — and the reasons why they opt for Brownstone Agency.

The Price is Right

Price is always the number one issue when it comes to brownstone insurance, and it’s easy to see why: In the last two years, annual insurance increases for multifamily homeowners have approached 30 percent. That’s why owners come to Brownstone Agency, which has a three-year prepaid policy that allows you to lock in this year’s rate. No other insurance agency has that policy.

“It’s the number one reason why single and multifamily building owners come to us,” said Brownstone Agency managing director John Simone. “They can get locked in and not see an increase for three years, it’s really special.”

The Coverage is Better

Brownstone Agency can enhance coverage limits based on the size of the property and the exposure better than anyone else. We prioritize the needs of the customer and extend coverage by writing on a Commercial Package Policy form. “They don’t have the ability to vary the flood, quake, or sewer limit based on the size of the exposure,” said Brownstone Agency marketing and sales agent Laura Allocco on Brownstone’s competitors. “We do.”

The Service is Comprehensive

Brownstone Agency takes pride in the fact that we have clients who have been with the company for 50 years — like family. Clients can walk into our Brooklyn office and have a coffee, pick up the phone, or send an email to get whatever they need for their brownstone insurance — increase their limits, decrease their deductible, whatever the case may be.
