  • Homeowners Insurance

    Sarasota homeowners are experts when it comes to knowing everything there is to know about their house and property, but not all homeowners may be familiar with everything contained in their home insurance policies. Some policies are designed with a one-size-fits-all philosophy and may not provide adequate protection for special features like swimming pools, garages, carports, tree houses, and children's play equipment. Your home insurance policy should not be a mystery. Let the team at Brightway Insurance help you determine whether your policy is really providing the kind of protection your home requires. For years, Valerie Kate Parsons has helped homeowners discover the right coverage for their needs.

    Every home and residential property is a little bit different, which means coverage should be tailored to meet each situation. Changes to the property, such as renovation or remodeling, may require taking a look at your current policy. As a Nationwide agency, we provide our customers with personalized coverage solutions. This approach helps make sure you are getting the most value for your money.

    We look forward to helping you access Nationwide home insurance and much more. Contact Valerie Kate Parsons today by calling (941) 921-9092, or drop by our office on 2811 Proctor Rd. Our experienced agents are ready to help you improve your existing coverage or discover new policy options.
