Houston relocation buyers need to know about flood insurance

There is nothing like a good old-fashioned Houston thunderstorm to get Houstonians thinking about flood insurance.

But what about those who are moving to Houston? Should they opt for flood insurance when purchasing a home in Houston?

According to Chris Badger, owner of Chris Badger State Farm, every homeowner should have flood insurance, and the coverage is relatively inexpensive considering this important safeguard.

Mobility Heroes

The relocation industry, or global mobility industry (call it whatever you like) has shaped my career in so many ways. From my early days in the profession to today, I have come to rely on so many mentors and colleagues and friends, who have gladly shared their insight and perspectives with me so selflessly. Many of those have become my heroes over the years, and many of my heroes have their own heroes.

Relocation departments embrace greening efforts

In recent years the relocation industry has seen a real push towards becoming greener. Historically, this has not been an easy task for relocation departments within real estate companies, where paper files have been the norm for many decades. Thanks to the advancement of various technologies and the advent of several streamlined tools and processes, relocation departments and real estate companies have taken advantage of paperless filing and have successfully executed greener initiatives.
