An Unwavering Focus
You could say that Kirk Eberl was born with claims in his blood. His grandfather, Mert Jordan, and his father, Gene Eberl, were both claims adjusters and gave Kirk exposure early in life to the claims business. Kirk formally began working in the insurance industry at age 18, and in 1979 he became involved in the catastrophe claims industry working for Gay and Taylor. After spending many years working as an independent contractor for others, he put everything he’d learned into the company that bears his name. Kirk founded Eberl Claims Service in 1987 with a focus on treating others with respect and honesty — a focus that continues to resonate within the organization today.
Eberl has grown considerably since those early days — handling over 100,000 claims annually and working every major catastrophe during the last two decades. As we move ahead at the speed of light, we still maintain the core values upon which the company was founded in 1987. Honesty, integrity and treating our adjusters how we would like to be treated have always been, and always will be, the cornerstones of our business.
