He and his staff truly enjoy what they do, and that translates to their customer service. They are easily accessible to Shelter’s existing clients and potential clients. They are also knowledgeable and efficient. “I love the anticipation of the day. New business, taking care of clients … it’s all part of the fun!” A 15-year veteran in the insurance business, Snider specializes in home, auto, and life coverage.
What does a typical day look like for you? I have an “up & at ‘em, it’s-a-new-day” attitude. Breakfast with the family, chasing lively children, work and the gym before dinner at home. Early to bed, early to rise!
What type of coverage do consumers often forget to purchase? Personal umbrella policies provide additional liability limits starting at $1 million of coverage. These policies are relatively inexpensive, and can certainly help protect your assets if a major liability event occurs. Inland marine policies may provide better protection of property, such as jewelry, guns, fine art, small tools, family heirlooms, etc. These items often have limited coverage on a homeowner’s policy.
Favorite food: Anything local and fresh
Favorite lunch spot: Anything near the beach on 30A
Two things you like to do outside the office: Work out (have to stay fit to keep up with my lively children!), water sports with the family on Greers Ferry Lake
Favorite genre of music: I enjoy it all; it truly depends on my mood.
