Real Estate Agent Insurance vs. Broker Insurance

Many people don’t realize the differences between real estate agents and brokers. And even though you do similar jobs, you often need different coverages to protect you while you work.

Real Estate Agents

Real estate agents help their clients purchase, rent or sell by showing properties. They stay on top of market conditions so they can provide guidance and assistance through the process of buying, selling or leasing.
It’s a good idea for real estate agents to make sure they have basic coverages that will help cover you if a client claims you haven’t done your job correctly and sues you.

Real Estate Brokers

Brokers need more coverage because they are legally liable for their agents. Getting property insurance and general liability insurance is a good idea.
