Tell us a little bit about your business.

I am a licensed health insurance agent with US Health Advisors. I can shop all plans in the state of Tennessee so I’m not cornered into just one market or company. I am able to provide plans that are exempt from the Affordable Care Act/Federal Healthcare Reform/”Obamacare” as well. Many clients I speak to are not happy about having their rates increase every year and one of the ways I combat that is by locking in rates for up to 3 years. This keeps people happy with the coverage they have at the price they want. Continue reading

Tell us a little bit about your business.

We are celebrating our 30th year serving Middle Tennessee as a premiere Burglar and Fire Alarm company.  In the early 90’s we began to work with more and more new construction home builders and noticed that there was a real need for other services like CCTV Camera Surveillance Systems, Whole House Audio Systems and Phone/TV/Internet Wiring.  We knew that if we applied the same level of care and value that we offer with our life safety systems, we could really be a unique concierge level option for our clients and builder clients alike.
