The following interview was taken with a current client of Settlement Quotes. Her name has been changed to protect her privacy.
QUESTION: "Karen, what made you decide to create an account with Settlement Quotes?"
KAREN: "When I decided that I needed to sell my structured settlement payments, I knew I wanted to get quotes from several companies. I started out by getting a quote from xx xxxxxxxxx. This company called me 3 times the first day and 7 times the second day. I knew this was going to be a headache trying to contact 3 or 4 more companies. When I first found Settlement Quotes it was 3 days after I received my first quote, and I just didn't want to deal with all of the companies harassing me."
QUESTION: "What was the quote that xx xxxxxxxxxx provided?
KAREN: "They quoted me $36,000 for my two lump sum payments."
QUESTION: "What was Settlement Quotes' quote to you?
KAREN: "Settlement Quotes provided 7 quotes ranging from $44,250- $48,000."
QUESTION: "Did xx xxxxxxxxx have a counter offer after they heard our quote?"
KAREN: "They were very weird about it and said that no one in the industry would be that aggressive with their quotes. They said they would beat it by $500."
QUESTION: "Why didn't you take the better offer?"
KAREN: "I thought about taking the offer, but why didn't this company offer me this quote to begin with? Are they playing games with my settlement payments?"
KAREN: "I had no idea before contacting you guys. You did a great job educating me on the ins and outs of selling payments."
QUESTION: "After accepting the offer, how soon did you receive your money?"
KAREN: "6 weeks and 1 day."
QUESTION: "What was the deciding factor when choosing the company you were going to work with selling your structured settlement payments?"
KAREN: "I felt as though you guys had an unbiased opinion and going to get me the best offer no matter what. I just felt comfortable with you guys. I didn't want to go through the process alone."
