    IRVING, TEXAS – Aug. 13, 2014 – Experiencing dynamic business growth, a rapidly expanding staff, and the need to respond quickly to inquiries for insurance quotes, Brian Dixon knew he needed a helping hand. The vice president, agency manager of North American Advantage Insurance Services (NAAIS) got that assistance and more with the July 22 release of his newly remodeled website at www.naadvantage.com.
    “With the resurgence of the real estate market, the demand for our products to be quoted, issued and delivered in a seamless, efficient and consistent manner has necessitated the revamping of our website,” said Dixon. “Offering increased functionality and ease of use, this new platform allows us to deliver on our promise to provide instant and accurate quotes, as well as exceptionally quick turnaround times in delivering our products.”
    The website offers customers the ability to request personalized quotes for a number of services such as homeowners insurance for single-family homes, multi-family homes, landlord coverage, and renters coverage as well as coverage for automobiles, motorcycles, boats, trailers, flood, and excess liability coverage (umbrella). Customers can fill out an online form via the website that collects information to assist in providing personalized quotes from a licensed NAAIS agent. As an independent agency, NAAIS then submits the request to a multitude of national and regional insurance companies to find the very best value.
          Instant quotes for Lennar homebuyers
    For buyers purchasing a new home from Lennar, there’s a bonus. As a subsidiary of homebuilder Lennar Corp., NAAIS is the preferred insurance solutions provider for Lennar homebuyers, and its agents have calculated the necessary coverage needed for each specific home well in advance. The personalized quote comes with prequalified rates that are not subject to traditional underwriting methods (credit scoring and loss reporting), but rather according to the specific home plan purchased in the specific new home neighborhood.
    “Using very sophisticated proprietary software, we are able to rate on the model level, which simply means we don’t check credit or loss history for the majority of our Lennar homebuyers, strictly basing the rate on the home itself,” said Dixon. “This allows the homebuyer to instantly find the rate for their new home 24/7, and allows our affiliate lender, UAMC, the ability to draw loan documents with confidence and order the policy for closing without ever picking up the phone or sending an email.”
    For instance, if a consumer is interested in a specific Lennar model in Katy, Texas, he or she might go to the NAAIS website, choose “Lennar Homeowners Quote,” input “Katy, Texas,” and “Cinco Ranch TX Reserve, Coral 5531.” A model quote immediately loads, showing a $1,323 annual premium on a new 2,753-square-foot home, including coverage for the dwelling, personal property, personal liability, replacement cost on contents and more.
    Other easily accessed features valuable to insurance consumers include glossaries of insurance terms, a link to the agency’s popular blog and a plug-in linked to its Facebook page. With insurance terms provided by the Texas Department of Insurance and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and articles explaining concepts such as insuring condominiums and leased cars, these informational tools provide peace of mind to consumers looking for answers to often-confusing situations. In addition, the website is easily viewable on mobile devices.
    According to Dixon, the website better reflects the look and feel of the agency’s brand, and its content is easily updated. For a company whose staff has grown by over 100 percent in the past three years and whose insurance coverage offerings have grown from seven carriers to 13 over the same time, the ability to easily update content is crucial, he added.
