Selling in a crisis

Now’s not a time for selling. Many of us are simply trying to exist and get through the next day. However, now’s really not a time for another crisis.

At NFS, we are committed to serving the nation and protecting against the damaging impact of flooding.  And this year, we could be facing more severe weather.  With the impact of COVID-19 being felt across the country, NFS is dedicated to preventing further turmoil and we are supporting agents nationwide in protecting their insureds from the risk of costly flooding.  With NFIP policies taking 30 days to come into effect, now is the time to ensure policyholders at risk have coverage in place.

This season, we are seeing:
