Just $114 for a one-year policy. Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation (RIDBR) requires only a one-year policy, so why pay more?
And now, you won’t pay extra to cover any activities for which a real estate license is required.
Your CRES Real Estate E&O + ClaimPrevent® includes PRE-CLAIM access to local expert real estate attorneys available 7 days a week – for questions, writing or reviewing letters and addendums, contract review, and more – to help you actually PREVENT claims. It also includes . . .
- Team/Non-Licensed Assistant coverage
- Conformity Endorsement coverage – if you are a Rhode Island resident, this endorsement amends your Rhode Island policy to conform to E&O requirements of other states where you hold a valid real estate license.
- 25 Free CRES Building Permit History Reports (a $99.95 value), included with your policy each year, with discounted pricing available on additional reports. Save $1000 on your out-of-pocket claims cost when you provide a Permit to the buyer. A CRES Exclusive
- PLUS, our Rhode Island E&O has ALWAYS included: no out-of-pocket costs when a claim has only Defense costs (“First Dollar Defense”), Firm and Franchise Coverage, and Prior Acts coverage for as long as you’ve maintained continuous real estate E&O insurance (with any company).
With CRES, you’ll enjoy SIGNIFICANTLY MORE COVERAGE – and MORE INCLUDED SERVICES!
CRES is a FAR better protection option than what the competition offers for most licensees in Rhode Island.
You may be eligible even if you have past complaints or claims.
As required by RIDBR, our policies cover all real estate activities requiring a license. Our online enrollment process is now simpler. Try it out!
