Weichert Insurance Agency Appointed by Palisades Insurance Company

July 09, 2008 // Franchising.com // MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. – Weichert Insurance Agency (WIA), an affiliate of Weichert, Realtors®, recently announced an agreement with the Palisades Group ("Palisades") that enables WIA to offer New Jersey clients a competitively priced automobile policy that is complementary to the homeowners insurance many clients already have with Weichert.

"The addition of Palisades is part of our continuing effort to grow both our client base and the carriers we offer," said Chris Oehrle, head of Weichert Insurance Agency. "This model allows WIA to best match client needs with the appropriate insurance company based on both coverage and price."

An automobile insurance company exclusive to New Jersey, Palisades allows many clients currently insured through Weichert to obtain valuable 'companion policy discounts' when insuring their vehicles through the same agency as their home. Many competing companies, in comparison, only underwrite homeowners insurance. Through this unique and creative relationship with Palisades, WIA is also able to provide the companion discount to clients who previously did not qualify for this special price.

"The appointment of Weichert as an agent was the ideal choice for our company," said Karen Murdock, vice president of marketing and distribution of Palisades. "As a result, we now have the ability to provide competitive auto insurance and exceptional service to clients whose home policy is written by an underwriting company that does not offer auto coverage."

"Through the new Palisades 'companion discount program,' we successfully found a way to offer lower auto insurance rates during an economic period of rising costs," added Oehrle. "At WIA, we take great pride in constantly searching for ways to enhance our policies and keep the cost to our clients at a minimum."

Weichert Insurance Agency is now licensed in all 50 states, representing over a dozen insurance underwriting companies in order to match client needs with the most appropriate insurance coverage at very competitive prices. Contact Weichert Insurance today by dialing 1-866-39AGENT for a no-cost, no-obligation quote on ALL of your personal insurance needs.

A family of full-service real estate and financial services companies, Weichert helps customers buy and sell both residential and commercial real estate, and streamlines the delivery of mortgages and home and title insurance.
