Tim Wahl, ACENTRIA INSURANCE

Based in South Carolina, Tim Wahl specializes in multifamily and private flood policies as vice president of Acentria Insurance, where he uses his four-plus decades of industry experience to serve condominium associations and property managers across the Carolinas and Florida. Wahl got his start in the industry at Nationwide Insurance, where he received top honors as National Agent of the Year, and later co-founded AmeriFlood and started his own independent P&C agency. He joined Acentria in 2016.

“The key strategy to growing my book of business is R&R: relationships and referrals. I like to do ‘credibility visits’ – stop by just to say hello, to see if the client needs anything,” Wahl says, adding that “you have to take the insurance speak out of your conversations with clients. Over the years, I’ve developed a hybrid language that somewhat breaks down the legal language of an insurance contract and brings it into everyday language.”
