You would think people who work for insurance companies would be the most careful people in the world. But one of Gotham Brokerage’s own — who prefers to remain nameless — had this story to share about her own narrowly averted apartment disaster.

“I almost flooded my apartment today!” she writes. “The landlord had turned off our water for an hour for maintenance. I completely forgot about it. So when I turned on the faucet and no water came out, I just left — totally forgetting to turn it back off. Luckily my daughter was home and heard the water running. I’d hate to think what would have happened if she hadn’t been home.”

Lots of us have stories of close calls like this — the time we forgot about oil heating up on the stove or our upstairs neighbor locked himself out while his bathtub was running. Fortunately, if things go bad, apartment insurance from Gotham Brokerage Co., Inc can help you replace your belongings and cover the cost of repairs. Gotham knows NYC apartment owner and renter needs better than anybody else, which means they can help you find the right coverage in the time it takes you to almost flood your apartment. If you have a moment, maybe today is the day to request a free quote, yes?
