Here is a quick story that happened yesterday.
One of our agents were working on getting a quote for a new client. A few of the insurance companies declined due to high numbers of HPD violations. The amount of violations indicated to the underwriters that the building is poorly maintained.
Our very dedicated and creative Sol Eisenberg contacted the underwriter and explained to them why they should reconsider accepting this account. Not only did they issue a quote for this building, they gave us the very lowest rate possible.
