ST. PETERSBURG, FL (December 1, 2018) – When disaster strikes, how do you begin to recover? Kristin “Kristi” Demers-Crowell handles commercial and residential building damage claims, including losses from hurricanes, fires, sinkholes, collapse, pipe bursts, water intrusion, theft, vandalism and other causes. Kristi pushes insurance companies to pay what they owe building owners. From condominiums and homeowners associations to residential homes, churches, marinas, restaurants and other businesses, Kristi handles losses from the start of the claims process through appraisal and trial. She forces insurers to handle claims, quickly, properly and fairly so her clients can get their lives, communities and businesses back to normal as soon as possible.
Join us on Thursday, December 6 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at 400 Beach Seafood and Tap House, 400 Beach Drive, St. Petersburg for lunch, networking, and information sharing. The public is invited to attend this event. Cost is $30 with a $5 discount if reservations are made by the day before. Reservations are necessary.

“This event helps to bring community awareness and media attention to how individuals and businesses can best respond to disasters from an insurance perspective,” said Sheila Barry-Oliver, 2018-2019 President of BPW/St. Petersburg-Pinellas. “The statistics are staggering: 2017 was the second-costliest year on record for natural-disaster insured losses at $134 billion.”
