You've probably heard the term "public adjuster," but do you actually know what a public adjuster does? A Florida Public Adjuster is licensed and regulated by the state.
Public adjusters are insurance experts that work exclusively for policyholders to provide insurance adjusting services. Our team at Reliant Insurance Adjusters have over 76 years of combined experience that make them the go-to experts for your insurance appraisal and claim needs.
Meet Karen Schiffmiller
Karen made the move from New York to the sunny state of Florida almost 30 years ago. She has even more years of combined legal and public adjusting experience than that! In fact, over a period of 37 years, Karen has worked and gained specialized knowledge that gives her the ability to understand insurance policies, and more importantly, the rights of policyholders.
As a proud co-owner of Reliant Insurance Adjusters, Karen's fortitude and tenacity enable her to effectively represent her clients by securing all the compensation to which they are legally entitled. She explains all the options under their policy and assists her clients in understanding the challenging insurance claim process.
Karen has many certifications and qualifications, and her experience includes adjusting insurance claim losses for residential and commercial property owners caused by water damage, hurricane, fire, flood, sinkhole claims, and more.
For insurance claim disputes, Karen is a Certified Property Insurance Appraiser & Umpire (CPAU). She is a member of the Windstorm Insurance Network and the Insurance Appraisal & Umpire Association (IAUA). Karen is a Past President and proud member of the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA).
Additionally, Karen offers USPAP compliant assessments and values and appraises personal property, including furniture, antiques, and collectibles.
Interests and Hobbies
Karen is passionate about giving back to the community and is the President of the FAPIA Foundation. She volunteers and raises money for people in need within local communities. In addition to community, family is very important to Karen. She values quality time with her family and friends and she loves keeping physically fit so that she can continue to provide excellent service to her clients in her sometimes physically demanding role of “professional roof climber.”
You have probably heard many people talk about their "purpose" or "motivation," the driving force behind the daily pursuit of their goals and aspirations. For Karen, that is and always will be, to help others.
“Helping our clients through the difficult and complex claim process is my passion. When I see how insurance companies do not comply with their own policies nor pay claims properly, it makes me work that much harder for our clients to ensure their rights are protected and their claims are fully paid.”
What Makes Karen Schiffmiller Different?
Karen has an uncanny ability to see the big picture and understands how important the timeliness and detailed manner in which she delivers her expertise can be to her clients.
Karen believes that creating customer satisfaction is as much about building trust and developing relationships as it is about the actual service itself. She prides herself on taking a client’s problem and making it her own while delivering the solution with the same level of attention and care.
Karen and the team at Reliant Insurance Adjusters are dedicated insurance adjusters, appraisers, and umpires who bring professionalism and expertise to the table and will bring final resolution to your disputed claims.

Did you know that the qualified team at Reliant Insurance Adjusters have over 76 years of experience between them? Not every insurance adjuster has the knowledge, skills, or certifications to provide you with the best services possible. But Scott Scovin covers all those bases and more!
Meet Scott Scovin
Scott moved to Florida in 2005 with a wealth of experience in areas that made him especially well-suited for the profession of public insurance adjusting. He previously owned several businesses which made him a natural fit as co-owner of Reliant Insurance adjusters.
Scott previously owned a disaster restoration business that specialized in professionally cleaning homes and businesses that had been damaged from fire, flood, and smoke. He was a preferred vendor for various Connecticut insurance companies who trusted his work and expertise.
Scott was the owner of a business that was dedicated to cleaning contaminated air duct systems, which are frequently impacted in water and fire losses. He earned his certification as an indoor air quality specialist during his time as owner of this business.
He also previously owned and ran a consignment store that specialized in antique furniture and collectibles. So naturally, it was an organic step that Scott would be involved in appraisals. Scott performs USPAP compliant assessments of personal property such as furniture, antiques, and collectibles in addition to his work as a Public Insurance Adjuster.
Scott is a Certified Property Insurance Appraiser & Umpire (CPAU) for insurance claim disputes. He is a member of Insurance Appraisal & Umpire Association (IAUA) and the Windstorm Insurance Network. He is also a proud member of the Florida Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA) and is a licensed FAA drone pilot in the state of Florida and is Matterport® Certified.
Scott has over 40 years of experience in handling property damage insurance claims, and his varied experience within the industry is an asset to the clients he serves today. His qualifications and certifications are many, but he prides himself on treating every claim as if it were his own.
Interests and Hobbies
Scott enjoys volunteering as a Eucharistic Minister & Lector at St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He gets immense joy from taking care of rescue cats, but don’t let that softer side of his personality fool you – Scott never turns down an opportunity to attend a great rock concert as he has been a drummer for 45 years. As he would tell you, he is famous in his own garage.
You’ve likely heard people talk about their “Why,” that thing that gets them out of bed each day to pursue their dreams. For Scott, that is helping his clients navigate the difficult claims process and protecting their rights under their insurance policies. Claims are complicated and Scott has the ability to make the complexity simple for his clients.
What Makes Scott Scovin Different?
Reputation and fairness are everything to Scott, and in addition to being your choice for public insurance adjusting, Scott can also act as appraiser or umpire through the appraisal process to bring final resolution to disputed claims. He understands the importance of being up to date in the areas of communication and technology, and Scott believes in always using the best resources and tools for his clients.
Scott and the team at Reliant Insurance Adjusters are dedicated to providing the professionalism, knowledge, and experience needed to get you the best possible settlement of your claim.
