SILL SUCCESS STORY | Helping an income property owner recover after a fire

In February of 2021, a rental property in Riverdale, Maryland, suffered devasting damage due to fire. The property owner, Lela, was out of state and knew right away she needed help.

She contacted Sill Public Adjusters after researching our company and was relieved to have help from the expert on our team.

"I was out of state, and I had no idea how to handle this type of situation, and I was feeling very intimidated and overwhelmed by the insurance company's processes. I knew the initial estimate from my insurance company was low, and a family member recommended using a public adjuster to help me negotiate my claim payout. After careful research, I knew Sill Company was the company for me," said Lela.

Our public adjusting team led the claims process, communicating with the property owner along the way to let her know what to expect. Sill was able to keep the claim on track and help the insured get the settlement amount she was entitled to based on her policy coverage.

With our help, she was able to recover enough of a settlement to remediate the damage and make some improvements to the rental property that allowed her to increase her rent when new tenants moved in.

This is another example of how a public adjuster can help anyone dealing with an insurance claim. Lela felt overwhelmed by the thought of dealing with her insurance company alone.

Her decision to work with Sill Public Adjusters ensured she reached the best possible outcome in a difficult situation.

"I'm extremely happy with the work Jeff and his team did, and I would recommend him and Sill Company to anyone in my position. The insurance companies are always only looking out for their profit margins; as a layperson, I am so grateful to have had someone advocating for my well-being," said Lela.

Sill helps hundreds of property owners each year who find themselves dealing with a disaster. Working with a public adjuster levels the playing field in an insurance claim.

When you bring an experienced public adjuster in, you have an advocate working for your best interests throughout the claim. A public adjuster does not work for your insurance company, so they can hold them accountable and negotiate with them to resolve any potential disputes.
