Don't Spin Your Wheels on Cycle Time

ALE finds the house. You have your policyholder's undivided attention.

Engaging ALE Housing Solutions to assist your policyholders with their temporary housing needs makes them available to help you with time-sensitive tasks such as selecting a contractor and itemizing contents.

Unnecessary nights in a hotel come with a premium of time, money and policyholder comfort. The key to transitioning back to home is having an efficient resource to manage complex problems and time-sensitive issues. ALE handles the details and keeps you up to date, seeking your approval as needed. You control the claim.

ALE makes it personal by matching the unique needs of policyholders. We negotiate the most ideal housing, normally in the family's same neighborhood and within 24 hours of the initial referral.

ALE partners with you to raise the level of service to the policyholder, earning trust with each claim. We make it easy to adjust.

ALE was able to set me up with housing within 24 hours of the tornado while all my neighbors were searching for a place to stay.
