What Type Of Insurance Do They Offer?

Some insurance agents only specialize in the “major” insurance policies such as home and car insurance. However, when you suddenly become the proud new owner of a boat or find yourself in need of critical illness insurance, you might be left trying to find a new agent. J. Thomas & Associates offers Allstate insurance to cover just about anything. From renters insurance to motorcycle insurance, and from flood insurance to liability insurance, we’ve got you covered – literally. We even offer supplemental insurance to cover any gaps your other policies may leave out.

Do They Have A Support Team At Their Agency?

So, you’ve found a great insurance agent, but if they do not have representatives and associates working by their side, you may find communication takes longer than you would like – which can be especially daunting when in the middle of filing a claim. While Jason Thomas is our agency owner, he is backed up by a friendly team of insurance experts who are ready to assist you in any situation. Many members of our team are bilingual, as well, in order to give our customers the absolute best service.

Do They Offer Insurance Discounts?

Allstate is a great insurance company to go through thanks to the various discounts available. The only surefire way determine which discounts you are eligible for is to speak with your insurance agent, as each situation is different. However, one of the best ways to get discounts is by having multiple policies through us. For example, insuring both your car and your home with us can usually save you a pretty good chunk of change. Often times, you may also be eligible for auto insurance discounts if your car meets certain requirements such as if it is new or has certain anti-theft mechanisms, or if your teen meets certain grade requirements in school. These are just a few examples, as there are dozens of ways to save. As your insurance agent, one of our goals is to create a plan that saves you money while still providing adequate coverage

Is Your Agent Community-Minded?

Insurance can be complicated, which is why it is so important to have a local agent you can speak with personally and build a relationship with. You can trust that our agency is dedicated not only to you as a client, but to the communities of Sugar Land, Houston, and our surrounding neighbors in Texas. Our insurance agency owner has a passion for volunteerism and is involved with multiple local charities and organizations that help better the community. We extend the opportunity to our clients to get involved with the community by having an ever-changing Community Cause. These are organizations and causes that J. Thomas & Associates support, and you can, too, by using our referral program. If you refer a friend to us, we’ll donate $10 on your behalf to the current community cause! Community Causes in the past have included supporting A Place For Dreamers, Music Therapy Center Houston, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Bully Free, and others.

What Type Of Experience Do They Have?

Ensuring that your local Allstate insurance agent is experienced in what they do is key. Jason Thomas, your Allstate agent, has been an agency owner for over four years, and has over 17 years of experience in personal finances, and particularly has experience as a personal financial representative. This means he is not only an expert in the field of insurance, but also in helping to protect your financial investments and achieve your financial goals.
