Jose & Eric of Chateau Public Adjusters A Partnership Made for Helping Homeowners: How We Got Here & Why We Do What We Do
Jose R. Flores-Izaguirre, President
Hi, I'm Jose, one of the founders and the President of Chateau Public Adjusters. I began my adjusting career in 2001 working for insurance companies, and I was repeatedly disappointed with how they treated their policyholders. After one too many bad experiences, I decided it would be better to use my considerable insurance experience for the greater good. I got my public adjuster's license and started Chateau Public Adjusters with my friend and partner Eric in 2016. Eric and I have been helping home- and business-owners get the coverage they deserve from their insurance companies ever since.
Most property damage claims end up getting considerably cheaper repairs than the insurance policy calls for, and this is almost always due to insurance taking advantage of an inexperienced policyholder who is too overwhelmed with the repairs process to worry about challenging their insurance company. So I've found that our claims services are met with a ton of gratitude. My past working for insurance companies has been a huge advantage when working against them during negotiating settlements for my clients. I have to say, it's really rewarding work and I'm looking forward to helping you, too!
Eric E. Hare, Vice President
Hello, my name is Eric - I'm the Vice President and one of the founding partners of Chateau Public Adjusters. Unlike Jose, I did not get started in the insurance business working as an adjuster - I have always worked with policyholders. My experience with property damage claims during my career in restorations and roofing construction is extensive and, just like Jose, I was (and am) strongly opposed to the frequent under-coverage and "bare-minimum, bad-aid" style repairs that insurance companies force on property owners. It's bad for homes and homeowners. Jose and I got to talking one day and realized that we could do a whole lot of good for south-central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland property owners by using our combined expertise in insurance and construction during the loss recovery process. And so Chateau was born.
I also own and operate Superior Services of PA & MD, a roofing/restorations company with whom Chateau regularly teams up in order to get property damage restoration claims approved & fixed. The double-threat services that Jose and I offer policyholders consistently yields incredible results, and I can't wait to meet you and show you what we can do!
