You may ask, "what makes Hourglass different?" Our clients feel very comfortable walking into our office. Almost all of them have been referred to us by their friends who are already doing business with us. People soon realize the willingness of the entire Hourglass staff to go the "extra mile" to make sure that their needs are met, even if it means there will be no sale. Quite regularly we advise someone to not do business with us because it is not in their best interest at this time. However, we always ask for referrals.

She left a lucrative position and moved 3000 miles away from family and friends to be with her future husband. Money is not her motivator. She's been in the insurance industry most of her adult life. She opened Hourglass Insurance Services in Gales Ferry Commons in January 2004.
