History


Mike Abt began his career in the mid 1980's as a restoration construction and loss consultant in Southwest Georgia. He was responsible for writing detailed estimates of insurance losses and guiding insured's through the rebuilding process. During this time, Mike gained the respect of the insurance claims community and subsequently was hired as a consultant to review claims throughout Georgia. 

This consulting experience created additional opportunities for Mike and, as a result, he was hired by a nationally known insurance company as a property claims adjuster. His responsibilities included property claims adjusting and property claims file review.

After a number of years as a property claims adjuster, Mike was offered the opportunity to work for a risk management firm in Atlanta, Georgia that specialized in the apartment industry.   Mike took the position of property claims manager and managed losses for over a quarter million units throughout the United States.   For nearly a decade, Mike negotiated and managed the rebuild of approximately $5 million annually in property losses while working with some of the nation's largest apartment management companies and owners.

In 2004, Mike joined Insurance Office of America to expand on his past experience and work with IOA's habitational insurance portfolio.   During his tenure with IOA, Mike negotiated and managed a variety of property claims, including hurricane claims for clients (two of which incurred over $30 million in damages each).   Throughout his career, Mike has written over $2 billion in estimates for insurance losses.

In early 2010, Mike chose to become an independent loss consultant.   Mike now works with his own network of contacts throughout the U.S.
