LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. We were joined by guests representing risk management and food products.

Our schedule now includes two showboaters and two speakers each week. Our showboaters were Dave Kozak (our life, health, and disability insurance specialist) and Mike Hoopes (our property and casualty insurance agent). Dave is especially passionate about life insurance and how it can be used both for death benefits but also for wealth building while the policy holder is alive.

Mike can help with the need for property and casualty insurance, and he provides excellent customer service as well as competitive rates for insurance policies. He is happy to look at existing policies to make sure that coverage is sufficient and also to see whether he can find a better rate.

Our first speaker was Kelly Smyth from FastPro Restoration (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). In addition to providing a fast and effective response, FastPro will also share empathy in times of loss. They are happy to provide free inspections and estimates for possible damage from fire, water, mold, or smoke. The company's owner comes from a background in public adjusting, so he has seen all types of damage and knows what are the appropriate remediation techniques. FastPro uses heat and plenty of fans to make sure that water is dried with minimal change to the home structures (walls, floors, etc.). No job is too big or too small, so contact FastPro for an estimate, and enjoy their excellent customer service and skilled work.

Our second speaker was residential realtor Scott Darling (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Scott has now been in the real estate business for 24 years, and he has added seven additional real estate designations to his expertise. He calculated that 84% of his business currently comes from previous clients and referrals, so we know that his service and care keep people coming back and recommending him to others. Scott sells four times as many homes as the average real estate agent each year. He likes working with both home buyers and sellers. If he has a client who is selling their home locally and then moving out of the area, Scott has a network of trusted realtors in other states that he can call upon to assist his clients with their out-of-state home purchase. If someone would prefer to rent their house rather than selling it, Scott can help with that, too. His moving truck is available for his clients: "Buy or sell with me, and use my moving truck for free." Contact Scott for any questions about selling or purchasing a home.
