Real estate agent and broker insurance — rooted in risk management

In 1996, we launched our firm with one goal: to protect real estate professionals with real risk management, quality insurance solutions and outstanding customer service. Our customized real estate agent and broker insurance leads the industry in innovations — because no other company takes the protection of real estate professionals so seriously.

We were the first to offer per-transaction payment plans, comprehensive risk management staffed by expert real estate litigation attorneys, and qualified home warranty programs.

From our early days working in a small office with three employees, CRES has grown into a highly respected organization, serving hundreds of thousands of real estate firms and professionals nationwide.

Even as we have expanded and evolved, we’ve always maintained our focus on minimizing client risks with safe, simple, and smart solutions.

In 2020, CRES became part of one of the largest insurance brokers in the world, Arthur J. Gallagher. This provided new resources to assure that real estate professionals continue to receive the best products and service in the industry. We’re here for you, stronger and better than ever.

We minimize real estate firm, agent and broker business risks by delivering safe, simple and smart insurance products.

What does CRES mean? Comprehensive Real Estate Services (CRES) was started by Real Estate attorney, Jim Allison, as a Risk Management program for 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. Together, they developed the industry’s first per-transaction payment plan and raised the bar by including risk management with every policy. When the Division of Insurance rejected their name application because it didn’t include a reference to selling insurance, Doug and Jim shortened it to the acronym, CRES.  Now you know.
