See What Clients Say About the Value of CRC’s Products

"Duke Properties is a provider of world-class service in the property management business. Having had personal experiences with Superstorm Sandy, we wanted our clients to understand their flooding risks and be prepared. Our management used Coastal Risk's innovative flood and storm models on our private residences. Understanding the value to us, personally, we are now integrating flood prediction modeling into our business processes. Additionally, the staff at Coastal Risk is very knowledgeable and responsive and will take the time needed to explain the model results and discuss cost-effective, adaptation options. This is an exciting new product for the property management industry, which will help us make more informed decisions in the future as climate changes."
