Why Choose Creekside Insurance Advisors Inc.

For Your Insurance Needs?

When it comes to insurance, partnering with the right agency is critically important.  Not only do you require the expertise to match your risks with the correct coverage, but you should also expect nothing less than superb value and excellent service along the way.  The following are just a few reasons why you should consider Creekside Insurance Advisors Inc. for ALL of your insurance needs:

1.  Retirement.  Several of our team members have specialized in the career-to-retirement space for more than 20 years.  This includes Medicare options, health insurance, life insurance, long-term care insurance, and financial products.  Commonly-owned Creekside Financial Group Inc. is also available for all financial advisory, planning, and investment management services (www.creeksidefinancial.net).  Our goal is to make this most important and exciting transition as easy, understandable, and confident as possible while creating value in each and every area of concern.

2.  Personal Lines.  Practically EVERY TV and Radio program today includes commercials about how much you can save on auto, homeowners, or motorcycle insurance.  Have you ever wondered how every one of these different companies can each save you money on your insurance premiums?  Do you believe that companies spending tens of millions annually on commercials can still provide the best value? Or instead, will a regional carrier that markets through an independent agency offer a better value?  With Creekside Insurance Advisors Inc. - you don't have to guess.  We will shop more than a dozen carriers including both national and regional carriers instantly to find value that meets your needs and budgets.  Plus, our team has the expertise to make specific recommendations based on your unique home, auto, umbrella, or other personal lines needs.  If these are not enough reasons to choose Creekside, each and every home and auto policy includes our trademarked service, *Renew-Check, which flags renewal premiums for rate increases which are automatically re-shopped if the rate increase is more than a pre-determined percentage.  This means we are working for you year-after-year-after-year-after-year-after-year........well you know what we mean!

3.  Business/Farm/Commercial Lines.  Most business liability and property coverage needs are quite similar in many ways, however, the commercial insurance landscape has an infinite number of exposures unique to very specific types of businesses.  For instance, a restaurant may have very different needs than a towing company or a physician's office or a construction company, or farming business.  Creekside's commercial team understands the unique needs of our business, farm, and commercial partners.  Our value proposition, in addition to expertise of these unique risk exposures, is that we are either appointed with or have access to dozens of carriers to meet these needs and to shop for the value you expect.  While shopping personal lines may save a few hundred to a few thousand dollars of expense, re-shopping commercial lines policies may realize savings of more than $10,000!

4.  Employee Benefits.  Hiring and keeping excellent employees today is a big challenge.  Employee benefits are essential in both attracting and keeping good employees.  Our Employee Benefits Team understands the complexity and delicate balance of both employee benefits and employer value.  This is why we will shop both fully insured and self-insured plan options (depending on employer size) in order to find the best balance for each and every business client.  In addition to core health insurance benefits, all ancillary benefits are also available, such as dental, vision, life, short and long-term disability, etc.  And while many Human Resources managers may prefer to assist employees directly, the Creekside Employee Benefits Team is also directly accessible to each and every employee, which may reduce the workload burden of HR management.

Testimonials

“In recent months, I made the decision to retire from Winchester Public Schools. After 35 years, I had multiple tasks at hand, and some very daunting.

Melissa made the transition much easier than I expected as she left no stone unturned. THANK YOU!"

Beth H.

“It was great working with Tina. She is knowledgeable and professional to work with. Helping us navigate through uncommon waters. Thank you!

 

I will be referring many friends so you can work your magic”

Bill, Bunker Hill, WV.

I was in to talk to Melissa Helmick on March 27, 2024 to determine the best choice for my Medicare Supplement insurance and prescription plan. I am turning 65 in July and know nothing about what to choose or what it entailed. Melissa was very detailed in letting me know what I needed and why. She explained everything to me and wrote everything down to make sure I understood. I walked in there with little knowledge of what path I should take when Medicare takes effect to walking out of there very knowledgeable of what I signed up for and what the cost will be and why. I recommend Melissa to anyone that needs any type of help with their insurance or insurance changes. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. Five stars!

Myra J. Gentilcore.

Thank you so much for getting home owners insurance for us that I could keep Rommel. It meant everything!

Lovell

I received great service and dependable service. Also, the quotes by Gena Young are great.

Jerry L.

"Don and I wanted to thank you for always having our back. We are so grateful that you took the time, before you left on a much needed vacation, to set us in motion for a plan that we can afford, with the same benefits. I know that much of what you do is expected and rarely thanked. Don and I felt it important to let you know just how much we appreciate you. We received a call from Darlene to notify us that all was approved and that cards are on the way."

 

Gretchen and Don

"Melissa is always informative, uplifting and encouraging. 

Thank you for making changes less challenging.

You are a blessing!"

I had the privilege of meeting Christian Fernandez recently when he got me up with more affordable auto and homeowners coverage. He was very diligent about helping me, and I was impressed from the outset with his warm and personable manner.

 

It was a delight to work with him, and you are blessed to have him in your group.

Joyce D, Winchester VA.

Gena Young is very knowledgeable with homeowners insurance. She is very friendly as well as punctual. I called her for a quote and she got back with me very quickly. She found me the best policy for my needs, she answers every question asked. I would recommend her above anyone else.
