My guest today is Mrs. Bree Breedlove of State Farm Insurance Agency, located at 2562 Western Ave., Park Forest, Illinois 60466. Bree is an insurance agent with more than 30 years of experience. She was named the 2014 Business Person of the Year, for her outstanding service and commitment within the surrounding communities.
Upon arrival I quickly realized that this building is the old Popeye’s. I have never been inside but I have spoken to the staff on several occasions. The outside is very deceiving because upon entrance I immediately notice that the office space is huge on the inside. Each office is made of glass and if I would have looked up 3 seconds later it would have been painted with my red lips. I admire the fact that I can see everyone and I am seen by everyone which ensures me that I won’t be waiting long.
During this week’s episode of Chicago Hidden Champs the gems that Bree shared were plenty, but here are a few:
- One on One insurance basics
- Multi-policy insurance discount
- Personalized affordable budget that fits you/your family needs
- Tips for planning ahead with life/disability insurance – No more go fund me pages
- Teach you how to make insurance work for you
“During difficult times you may NOT be emotionally ready, but you can be financially prepared,” said Bree. Though Go Fund Me pages are beneficial, for each donation received there is a 5% fee, which is deducted automatically, but can reach as high as 15% with payment processing and such.
Bree and her staff have helped numerous clients, throughout the years, with their financial and insurance needs. The insurance services that Bree and her staff provides include, but are not limited to, life, health, auto, home, renters, motorcycle, banking and more. Do you know the importance of insuring your belongings as a renter? Do you know the difference between term life insurance vs. whole life insurance? Which of the two offers a guaranteed rate of investment return on the cash value?
She understands that life happens, and quickly, but she wants to provide you with tools to ensure your families financial security.
With the tedious tasks of managing everyday risks, Bree and her staff are there to assist you and your family in your time of need, like a good neighbor.
