Sill "instrumental" in helping apartment manager recover after fire

In January of 2019 a fire broke out at the Great Northern Village Apartments in North Olmsted, Ohio. The property is operated by Burton Carol Management, LLC.

On the night of the fire multiple crews responded to battle the flames. News reports from the scene show smoke and flames rising from the roof. Fortunately everyone was able to evacuate and no injuries were reported.

After the fire it became clear to company leaders that they needed help with their insurance claim. They turned to Sill, the leading public adjusting firm in North America.

An apartment fire claim has multiple layers which proved to be a difficult process. "This wisdom and negotiations that Mike Hickle brought to the table proved invaluable in making sure we left no issue unaddressed." said Joy Anzalone, Chief Operation Officer, Burton Carol Management.

Sill was able to assess the damage and generate a complete damage report for the property management firm. Hickle reviewed the insurance policy and ensured that Burton Carol Management received the maximum settlement available per their policy.
