The CRES difference: the best claim prevention 7 days a week

Our focus is helping real estate pros avoid the horror of a real estate claim.

No other company takes the DAILY protection of real estate professionals so seriously.

Resources most insurance brokers can’t access – to find you the best protection at the right price

We have the best coverage options for real estate professionals  ̶  because no one else has the product access that we have.

CRES is part of one of the largest insurance brokers in the world, Arthur J. Gallagher. That means unequaled resources to find the best protection for a wider variety of real estate-related companies. Plus, we underwrite directly for our in-house programs.

Whether you sell, appraise, manage, or finance real estate (individually or with a firm) – or work in escrow or as a transaction coordinator, we’ve got you covered.

Continuous innovation in protection solutions since 1996

In 1996, we launched our firm with one goal: to protect real estate professionals with pre-claim legal advice, quality insurance solutions and outstanding customer service. And we continue to proactively improve the solutions we recommend.

Our flagship service – customized real estate errors and omissions insurance – leads the industry in innovations, with:

  • Per-Transaction payment plans for firms
  • Comprehensive ClaimPrevent® legal services staffed by expert real estate litigation attorneys 7 days a week
  • Qualified Home Warranty programs that reduce your out-of-pocket claims cost

CRES now serves hundreds of thousands of real estate-related firms and professionals nationwide. We’ve expanded and evolved to offer Business Owner’s Policies, comprehensive Cyber Liability plans, Worker’s Compensation insurance, and Surety Bonds – all tailored to the specific needs of the real estate industry.

We got our start when two entrepreneurs had a better idea

What does CRES mean? Comprehensive Real Estate Services (CRES) was started by Real Estate attorney, Jim Allison, as a Legal Services program for real estate agents and brokers.  His vision was to provide industry professionals with the education, resources, and legal representation to prevent small issues from becoming big problems.

It worked.

The program’s quick success caught the attention of entrepreneur Doug Campbell, who was running a real estate E&O insurance program at the time. He and Jim joined forces to provide better value E&O to real estate agents and brokers throughout the country. They raised the bar by including Legal Services with every policy.
