Texas Realtors Risk Management Partner

With CRES E&O + ClaimPrevent®, enjoy more coverage and services for your E&O investment:

  • The most extensive specific-to-real-estate coverage.  Our individual coverages are the key to protecting you and your business from specific-to-real-estate risks.
  • Cover all of your Texas real estate activities. In addition to covering residential real estate sales, you can cover commercial sales or leasing, BPOs, or land sales. (Cover your appraisal and transaction coordinator activities with a separate policy.)
  • Pre-Claim Legal Services included 7 days a week.  Top local real estate attorneys will help you proactively resolve issues before they escalate. You can ask questions, have letters or addenda prepared, get contracts reviewed — and it’s all included in your E&O (with a guaranteed response time!)
  • 25 Free Building Permit History Reports (a $99.95 value). Show potential buyers whether an improvement is permitted, right on your phone — and reduce your out-of-pocket claims costs up to $2,500!  You’ll receive 25 FREE CRES Building Permit History Reports (per policy year) and discounts on additional report purchases.

Your CRES E&O policy is completely portable, so it moves with you no matter what company you’re with.  Isn’t it time you had superior protection and pre-claim legal services?

Why Invest in Your Own Errors and Omissions Insurance?

Your own Texas E&O policy should be customized for your actual real estate activities.  (Many insurance companies use the same E&O policy across industries.  But that doesn’t protect you from many risks specific to real estate.)  And your own E&O policy will protect your assets first:

  • Puts YOUR Protection First, Even When Your Firm’s Policy Can’t. Even if your firm has E&O coverage, if its total claims exhaust the available coverage, you’ll be without coverage should you need it — and legal fees and judgments will come out of your pocket. (Yes, this does happen.)
  • Portable. If you ever leave your company, or it loses coverage (by not renewing or making payments), or is sold or goes out of business, you’ll likely have a gap in coverage.  That will leave you vulnerable and unprotected for your past activities. Having your own individual E&O policy is the only way to ensure continuous coverage — and that the coverage will be there should you need it.
  • Reduce Your Out-of-Pocket Claims Costs. Use a CRES Qualified Home Warranty* to protect the buyers, eliminate your E&O retention (your out-of-pocket claims expense), and get up to an additional $50,000 in Seller’s  Protection Plan coverage.*
  • Discounts to Office Depot®, Constant Contact® Email, Lenovo® PC Products, UPS® shipping, even Bekins® and Wheaton Van Lines moving discounts you can offer to your clients.

Here are a few more critical reasons why you should have portable individual real estate E&O coverage.
