Tweetable Quotes:

  • “Flood zones are no longer really going to determine flood routes, they’re only going to determine the requirements. You’re going to have the cost to rebuild, frequency of flooding, type of flooding, distance to water…These types of things are all going to impact rates.” – Chris Greene
  • “You can either take famous data, or you can take an elevation certificate. Well, if it’s me, I’m taking the elevation certificate all day long, because at the end of the day, someone actually put their eyes on that property.” – Chris Greene
  • “Most private companies do have a waiting period that ranges between seven days and 15 days, while FEMA still has that 30 day wait period and they’re not changing that.” – Chris Greene
