When you walk into an ice cream parlor, what is one of your first thoughts? “How many samples can I get?” is typically what runs through our mind! You can think about insurance in the same way. There are so many providers and differing levels of coverage, it is our job to help show you the ‘flavors,’ as it were, and make sure you find the best ‘tasting’ option for you! Your insurance needs to fit into your greater financial picture—be appropriate for your specific financial situations. We find that learning and applying knowledge around your finances in an active, intentional and strategic way empowers you for financial success, including when it comes to protecting your money.


Conversing with our experts is a crucial step in making insurance purchases as it provides guidance for making a more informed decision. Not only do we provide insight about the carriers and coverages, we provide strategy for positioning you for the best possible outcomes, making your insurance payments less expensive without sacrificing coverage. We help you understand YOUR coverage options and identify potential risks and opportunities to find the best fit for you!

*Summary: We find that learning and applying knowledge about your finances in an active, intentional, and strategic way empowers you for financial success, including when it comes to protecting your money.



Know Your Options


To demonstrate the importance of weighing your insurance options, we want to tell a customer’s story shared by CEO and Founder, Andrew Denton:




A lady needed homeowners insurance and gave me a call. She was a single mother who was proud to move into her first home with her young son. She told me how excited her son was about his new room, and how they were both looking forward to having friends over. 


Earlier in the conversation she had turned down my offer for auto insurance, but after shopping for her home insurance I mentioned that she could save $300 if she ever changed her mind about bundling her home and auto policies.


She hesitated, and said, “Let’s try it. Um… here’s the thing: A little while ago I bought a car but before I could drive off the dealership lot, the finance manager put me on the phone with an insurance agent who gave me a quick, cheap, full coverage policy. 




They said it was a ‘legal requirement.’




A week later I was driving on the highway and my tire went flat. I swerved into an 18-wheeler, who ran into two other vehicles! 


Somehow nobody was hurt, but the total cost of all the property damage was $70,000.” 


I had to ask: “How much property damage liability coverage did you have on that auto insurance policy?” 


She responded, “$20,000… and I just got a letter from my insurance company saying I am being sued for $50,000.” 




Me: “…I’m sorry to hear that.”




This $50,000 lawsuit was insurance-related pain. The loss of money, time and other resources because of her insufficient coverage led to mental anguish—pain. And later on, after I provided her insurance, I found out that she wouldn’t be needing that home policy. 


She could not qualify for her home mortgage after factoring in that $50,000 loss. This emotional situation was insurance-related pain the whole family felt.


Insurance isn’t just a “legal requirement.” In this case, it was the difference between homeownership and no home plus a $50,000 lawsuit. For many it’s worse. The financial seriousness of it is the reason weighing insurance options is so critical. 


Your Green Brook Insurance Advisors understands that making these choices can be difficult and overwhelming so we act as the strategist in your corner to help you decide what products best meet your needs and budget. 


Choices help you find the best value for your money, so you can make sure you get the most out of what you spend. Green Brook is here to do the work for you, sifting through all the different plans. We have no allegiance to a single carrier and are truly working to seek out the best possible policy for YOU. 


Our expert knowledge base is focused on matching our clients with the best carriers for their specific needs. No strings attached, just better coverage. Being able to evaluate different personal, business or life insurance products allows you to find the best options for your needs and budget.




Independent Insurance Brokers Who Care


*Summary: We’re not “Captive” or “Exclusive” agents who only offer insurance from one or a few carriers. We’re independent and have a lot of great carriers to choose from. Having these options empowers you to protect your finances.



Receive The Care


Green Brook works for you and collaborates with outside professionals when insurance is involved. We work to tailor insurance policies to you because there is no magic “one size fits all” plan. Every person’s situation is unique and we believe their insurance should suit them. After our experts talk with you to figure out your needs, we actively shop with our many providers to a custom fit. 


We are dedicated to finding the best for our clients, even if that means going back and investigating denied claims. We treat our clients as we would want to be treated, and we will fight for the very best for you. In that way, we also don’t use any call centers, our designated licensed insurance advisors are directly accessible via call, text, or email when you need them. Green Brook is committed to Annual Policy Reviews to ensure you maintain a competitive rate and appropriate coverage.


We Tailor Insurance To Suit You.


*Summary: Insurance is meant to support you, but managing it can be a hassle, confusing, and aggravating. There is a need for empathy, accessibility, follow up—care—in our clients’ success. Care is also empowering and plays a role in our clients’ financial peace.
