From 8 to 20 Times More Coverage in EVERY CRES E&O Plan

Every CRES E&O plan is guaranteed to meet 100% of Montana requirements, guaranteed to meet or beat the coverage of the state group plan, and includes expert pre-claim Legal Services 7 days a week.

Compared to the state group plan, every CRES plan includes far more coverage:

Base Protection Plan and Superior Protection Plan

  • Pollution/Environmental (including mold) to $100,000    —  vs $10,000 (10x the coverage)
  • $100,000 Open House and Showings — you’re covered for damage and injuries to third parties, as well as from your real estate signage! (not included in the state group plan. You really can’t do your job without this coverage, can you?)
  •  Lockbox Property Damage to $100,000 — vs $5,000 (20x more coverage)
  • Cyber Liability data breach notification up to $50,000 — vs $5,000 (10x the coverage)

  • Defense Outside the Limits (gives you additional coverage equal to your policy limit to cover defense costs)
  • Firm/Franchise coverage
  • Agent-Owned Property sales of rentals and vacation properties up to a 4-plex (state group plan only covers primary residence)

  • Conformity Endorsement Coverage — this amends your Montana E&O policy (for Montana residents) so that it also conforms to any E&O requirements in other states like Idaho where you hold a valid real estate license (state group plan adds $20)

CRES is a FAR better protection choice than the state group policy for most licensees in Montana.

Your CRES E&O includes coverage for all activities that require a real estate license, as required by the Montana Board of Realty Regulations.  Your plan is guaranteed to meet all MBRR requirements.
