  • Homeowners Insurance

    Modern home insurance coverage is not one-size-fits-all, but is instead based on the unique aspects of your home and living in Newport News. Some physical components to consider when covering your home are detached additions, like pools and sheds.

    Another aspect of home insurance is covering the belongings on the inside, the ones that are most valuable or the most important to you. For expensive works of art, antiques or jewelry, there is our Valuables Plus® coverage. If the unforeseen does happen, you can be covered with our Brand New Belongings® program which aids in the repair or replacement of your covered belongings. Whether you're covering priceless memories or expensive boutique items, John F Baxter Inc. and all our other local agents want to make sure you get the best coverage possible.

    The sheer number of coverage options and discounts can seem overwhelming, but not when you have John F Baxter Inc. to explain every step along the way. We're located at 393 Denbigh Blvd, but you can also call us at (757) 872-8283 to schedule an appointment or just ask questions.
