Welcome to Insurance 101...
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Joe Urvina, I am a husband, a father, and a small business owner. I was born and raised in the beautiful Puget Sound region. I met my wife in 1998 while going to school, and have been happily married since. We have three beautiful children and love living and working in Gig Harbor.
I currently own the Urvina Insurance Agency in Gig Harbor. One reason I got into insurance is because I really enjoy helping people. My agency allows me to do that everyday by guiding people through the confusing world of insurance.
I say guiding people because insurance can be very complicated. Unfortunately, I have found that most people don't know a lot about insurance... whether it is auto, home, medical or life insurance. Shoot, I didn't know anything really before I entered the industry. I knew that I had to have it, and I hoped that if someone hit me with their car they had it.
In today's market, insurance is getting more difficult to understand. It is harder because a lot of us are choosing to go with direct insurers instead of a local insurance agent. We tend to make decisions on cost and commercials instead of taking the time to understand what coverage our family needs.
I hope to use this blog to unravel the mysterious world of insurance for you. Once a week I will write about an insurance topic and interpret insurance lingo so that everyone can understand it. I am sure that this is a topic that will put most of you to sleep, but I will do my best to make it entertaining too.
If you have a specific question you would like me to address please email me and I will take the time to answer your questions.
