Greg Devone
President - Licensed P&C Agent

Email Address • GregDevone@premierflood.com

“I am honored to serve as the President of Franklin Homeowners Assurance Company, now Franklin Flood, LLC, America’s Premier Flood Insurance Provider. Since assuming this position in the summer of 2006, much has happened within the flood insurance industry as well as with Franklin itself. I felt it was time to reach out and thank our agents, those responsible for making Franklin one of the fastest growing carriers in the flood program. Franklin was awarded the Administrator’s Club Award at the 2006 and 2008 National Flood Conferences, sponsored by FEMA. This award is bestowed upon WYO companies in recognition of their contributions to the growth of the NFIP. By specializing in flood insurance we differentiate ourselves from our competitors in several important ways. Service, product knowledge and our ease of doing business elevate Franklin to the top tier. Our in-house staff of experienced P&C licensed flood professionals is available to your office to handle your needs courteously and expeditiously. I want you to think of Franklin as an extension of your back office. Our mission is to make writing flood insurance easy for your agency. Recent lapses in the NFIP followed by short term retroactive extensions, remapping of entire communities, grandfathering issues and rule changes are a few of the complicated issues that Franklin, as your flood specialist, will simplify. Through the following pages I will introduce the rest of Franklin’s team that share in my dedication to a long term, mutually beneficial relationship between Franklin and our Agents.”

“Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. We appreciate your business and the confidence you have placed in our company.”

Vice President, Sales - Licensed P&C Agent

Customer Service was once the mantra of every corporation, and then abandoned when profitability suffered. Now customer service is paid for by tying employee compensation into marks received from corporate issued customer questionnaires.

“Remember that nothing but a 10 counts” is the embarrassing plea of many an employee. I truly feel for them. However at Franklin I am proud to say we have a culture of customer service that need not be measured.

It is service fueled by everyone’s passion working here. We truly want to help in our little piece of the world as America’s premier provider for flood insurance.

I am pleased representing a company that has a product I believe in, offers great pricing, and truly cares for each of their policy holders. If you have come to this page to learn more about Franklin Flood, I hope you leave assured that when it comes to flood, “The only thing you need to know is Franklin Flood”. God bless you all.

Flood Insurance is Affordable Again:

The Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HFIAA), which went into effect July 1, 2014, restores grandfathering and much of the previous affordable rate structure and more reasonable regulations. For the consumer this means that NFIP Flood Insurance is affordable and obtainable again.
