Oh My, Can you believe it; Summer is over and Fall is upon us. Take a few minutes to read and see what's new with us. We have added 2 new associates to our team this year; Sandy, my Executive Assistant, and Kim, our second Commercial Specialist, (besides me). They are both local Chesterland residents. Nationwide is also in the process of converting all of our home and auto policies over to new more efficient  software, so if you received documents and they don't seem right no need to panic, but do call us to address any concerns you have.

We thank you for your trust and continued business.
Wishing you a great fall season. 
Warm Regards, Barb
