I’m currently an intern at Triest and a rising junior studying risk management and insurance at the University of Georgia. In my insurance classes, I have constantly heard of the looming dangers of online mass insurance providers. With nothing more than a client’s name, social security number, and address, they cannot provide competitive Charleston home insurance. These providers are not a threat to Triest Agency. Why is that? An online provider will never be able to provide Charleston homeowners with the level of personalization necessary to properly insure a Charleston home. When dealing with assets as large as homes, it becomes increasingly important to have the advice and expertise of an experienced local agent at Triest Agency in Charleston, SC.
When you come to Triest, you can be sure that your agency understands your challenges and your needs. We can create the most complete coverage policy possible based on your location, because we live here too.
Triest’s five star Google, Yelp and Facebook ratings stem from more than just our local presence. They are also heavily predicated on the agency’s vast experience. Triest has been writing insurance in the Charleston area since 1903. With 114 years of insurance service under our belt, we have insured just about every kind of home in the area that you can imagine.
Our level of customer service is unparalleled. Ensuring that customers are completely satisfied with their insurance coverage is not just important to us, it is our top priority. Top customer service keeps our clients coming back year after year. We have a history of building and maintaining outstanding relationships with our customers, and our customer reviews can speak for themselves.
Triest is the only insurance agency in all of South Carolina that internally tracks its customer service rating through a Net Promoter Score. This score is set on a scale of -100 to 100, and it is directly based on customer reviews. This serves as a quantitative measure of how likely our customers are to recommend us to their friends. When choosing a company to work with, you need to be sure the agency will make you a priority. Insurance is a service industry; and here at Triest, our service is our top priority.
After two years of undergraduate business education, I can’t say that I know everything about running a business, far from it. But what I do know for sure is this: you don’t stay in business serving the same community for over a century without doing something right. And here at Triest, we are doing it right and have been doing so for a long time.
Insuring a Charleston home is not easy. But we can make the process stress free. Every single South Carolinian faces different risks each day, so why should they all have the exact same insurance coverage? When you speak with one of our account executives, they aren’t just checking off boxes and then quickly assigning you a premium. Instead, our entire agency is working on your behalf to give you the peace of mind that comes with a comprehensive and affordable insurance policy that is unique to you and your home.
