The mantra that characterizes Korkis Insurance is expressed by Baskal Korkis as, “I’m driven by the idea that if you are going to do something, be great at it.” And GREAT is how many clients describe their experience with Baskal Korkis on Google Reviews:
Tom Martin wrote, “We always appreciate the great service we get from this agency. We’ve been customers for a few years now and have been pleasantly surprised by how efficient and friendly everyone who works there is. I called one day about a year ago during lunch hours and after three rings, Baskal Korkis answered the phone! I was shocked! So, customer service excellence starts with the owner and trickles down throughout the organization. When the owner covers the phones at lunch, you know he cares about the business. He also spent a lot of time with me explaining ways to get some discounts. (much appreciated) Today I got a call from Chris following up on my homeowner’s policy. He took care of everything we discussed and even called me back to let me know how things worked out, (like he said he would). I taught Customer Service for a large organization before I retired, and I’m not easy to impress! But people- THIS IS HOW YOU TREAT YOUR CUSTOMERS! BRAVO!”
Beginning at the age of 18, Baskal Korkis was an entrepreneur who was fascinated with business and investing. By the time he was 23, he owned 23 apartments that required insurance. Korkis said that his encounters with insurance agents were frustrating—that they didn’t take the time to educate customers about options. What Korkis saw lacking was customer service, so Tom Martin’s Google Review is especially rewarding for Baskal who views himself as a “client educator.”
A native of the Greater East Lake Community, Korkis believes that a part of great customer service is reflecting the international community in which he lives and works. Korkis’s staff is comprised of experienced and cordial professionals who are multilingual. “My staff speaks English, Spanish, and Arabic, so they will be able to take care of you and answer all your questions in the language of your choice,” said Korkis.
Another Google Reviewer wrote, “This Allstate agency has the most helpful and knowledgeable group of agents in Pinellas County. Chris, Marta, Daniel & Amanda have all been wonderful to work with. They make insurance make sense to everyday people. I highly recommend this agency for all insurance needs! They have great rates on life policies & a lot of no cost information on financial services that I didn’t even know existed. Wonderful people!!”
Aligned with being a “client educator,” Baskal Korkis has created a comprehensive agency that specializes in commercial insurance, financial services, life insurance, real estate, annuities and more. “Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for all of our clients’ financial needs; when we’re discussing insurance, we often discuss overall financial planning, tax planning, wealth management, etc.” said Korkis.
For services not directly provided by Korkis Insurance, Baskal Korkis refers clients to a team of subject matter experts and licensed advisors including attorneys, CPA’s, real estate agents, wealth managers, investment advisors, and financial planners. “The experts who we work with have been carefully selected and vetted, and we only refer our clients to professionals who we work with ourselves,” said Korkis.
Since December of 2013, Korkis has been operating his companies based on the Golden Rule: “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” For Korkis, he learned as a young real estate investor, that many insurance providers do not provide the best rate, nor do they give clients the most accurate information. That is the reason that Baskal Korkis has hired a team of excellent customer service specialists who always put the needs of the customer first.
“We care about the people in our communities, and we do everything within our power to serve them to the best of our ability,” said Korkis. As an active member of the community, Baskal supports law enforcement and veterans’ organizations. He views the members of his community and his clients like members of his own family.
